Philips System 500 Hi-Q dictation machine squeaks on record.

I have an antique Philips System 500 Hi-Q dictation machine with all the fitments. Unfortunately when I try and record onto a tape, the machine makes a high pitched squeaking noise. The machine is a reconditioned one and the vendor assures me it was working properly when it left him. It did not come with any cassette tapes so I bought some new. It works perfectly except for the squeaking! Any suggestions why it is squeaking?

I have the same but the powercord is missing.
is it going directly to the wall socket or is there a DC power uniy which you plug in?
in that case what is the voltage? Could you check.

If your new tapes squeak while recording, there could be misalignment in the record path or it could be worn. Curious that no tapes were supplied with the machine. Perhaps you can take the machine to the vendor to demonstrate operation with squeaking.

    Thank you for your answer. The machine is a reconditioned one and was supplied without tapes so I bought new ones. Unfortunately the vendor is in the Midlands which is a long way from Surrey. I have bought an instruction book from another ebay seller which will hopefully give me some suggestions for fixing the problem.
