Handling Cassette Tapes

Caution

<Do not open the cassette or pull the tape out of the cassette.

<Do not touch the tape surface.

<Do not use or store the tape in a humid or dusty place.

<Keep the tape away from any magnetic sources, such as speakers or TVs, otherwise noise may be produced during playback or important recordings may be erased.

Cassette tapes that you should not use

Poor performance, errors, or malfunctions may result if you use any of the tapes described below. Some of these tapes may also cause tape clog problems that can damage the tape transport mechanism.

Cassettes that are imperfectly shaped

Do not use a deformed cassette or one that has unstable tape movement or makes a strange sound during fast-forward or rewind.

Long play tapes

Do not use C-120 or longer tapes. These tapes are very thin and can easily stretch or get tangled in the tape transport mechanism.

Endless tapes

Do not use these tapes because they can easily get tangled in the tape transport mechanism.

Automatic tape type detection function

This cassette deck can detect what type of tape is being used based on the detection holes in the cassette shell. Be sure to use cassettes with detection holes.

<With this cassette deck, you can play back normal (Type I), chrome (Type II) and metal (Type IV) tapes. For recording, use normal (Type I) or chrome (Type II) tapes.

<Each deck (TAPE I and TAPE II) is equipped with its own auto tape type detection function, so you can use different types of tape at the same time.

Using the Remote Control Unit

Cautions when using the remote control unit

<Point the remote control unit at the remote sensor of the cassette deck and operate the remote control unit at a distance of no more than 5 meters. Do not place objects between the remote control unit and remote sensor.

<Direct sunlight or very bright light will reduce the sensitivity of the remote sensor. If this is the case, use the control buttons on the cassette deck instead of the remote buttons.

<It is possible that other infrared-ray-sensitive equipment nearby may malfunction when you operate the remote control.

Loading batteries into the remote control unit

Remove the lid of the battery compartment, load two “AA”

 

sized batteries in the indicated directions, and then replace

 

the lid. When inserting batteries, be sure to observe proper

ENGLISH

polarity (+ and –).

 

If you have to put the remote control unit quite close to the remote sensor or if any remote buttons do not work, then the batteries are no longer fit for use and must be replaced. Be sure to always replace both batteries at once.

Important Cautions for Handling Batteries

Improper battery use can result in leakage or rupture. Observe the following instructions:

<Load the batteries in the correct direction as indicated in the battery compartment.

<Do not mix old and new batteries, or mix different types or brands of battery.

<Do not heat, disassemble, or throw batteries into fire or water.

<Do not store or carry batteries together with other small metal objects. Doing so can cause battery shorting, leakage or rupture.

<Do not try to recharge dry batteries.

<When the cassette deck is not going to be used for a long time (more than one month), take the batteries out of the battery compartment.

<If leakage into the battery compartment is observed, wipe up any liquid inside the compartment and load new batteries.

Song Search

m,m,

This cassette deck is equipped with the Computomatic Program Search (CPS) function. This function detects blank spaces (longer than 4 seconds) between songs and fast-winds the tape in the forward or backward direction skipping over the specified number of songs, thus allowing direct access to the beginning of a desired song. CPS can skip up to 20 songs ahead of or behind the current song.

When you press the m or , button during playback, the tape counter reads “CP 01” and the tape starts running at high speed in the pressed direction. Each time you press the same direction button, the displayed number increases by one integer. The number decreases as you press the opposite direction button.

<If you are listening to a song and want to go back to the previous song, press the locator button opposite to the playback direction twice. Pressing it just once will take you back to the beginning of the current song. Each additional press of the button will take you back one song.

Troubleshooting

If you think that there is something wrong with this cassette deck, make the checks listed below before contacting a repair service. In some cases the problem may lie with another component. Check all components.

If the problem cannot be solved with any of the following checks, contact your nearest TEAC authorized service center or your dealer for help.

Cannot switch on the power.

eCheck the connection to the AC power supply. Check and make sure the AC source is not a switched outlet and that, if it is, the switch is turned on. Make sure there is power to the AC outlet by plugging another item such as a lamp or fan into the outlet.

No sound

eCheck the connection to the amplifier. eCheck the amplifier settings.

The remote control does not work. eCheck that the deck is powered on.

eIf the batteries have run out, replace both batteries.

eIf there are obstacles between the deck and remote control, remove them. Point the remote control at the remote sensor of the deck from a distance of less than 5 meters.

eIf the remote sensor of the deck is exposed to direct sunlight or very bright light, the remote control may not work. If this is the case, use the control buttons of the deck itself instead.

Noisy playback

eKeep away from equipment that generates a magnetic field, such as a TV or microwave oven.

Transport control buttons don’t work. eLoad a cassette tape if not loaded. eIf a cassette tape is loaded, reinsert it.

The cassette compartment does not close.

eThe cassette is not properly loaded. Reinsert it.

Poor sound quality eClean the heads.

eCheck that the Dolby NR switch is set to the same position as when recording was made.

Cannot record.

eIf the erasure prevention tabs on top of the cassette are broken off, cover the holes using pieces of adhesive tape.

eCheck the connection to the amplifier and to the source equipment.

eSet the amplifier input/output selectors correctly. eCheck the recording level setting.

Playback speed seems somewhat fast or slow. eCheck the pitch control setting.

Auto reverse does not occur

eSet the REV MODE switch to “j” or “p”.

eIf the REV MODE switch is set to “j”, start playback from the tape side facing you (side “A”).

Synchro reverse dubbing is not possible.

eSet the REV MODE switch to the “j” position. eLoad cassettes into both decks.

eSet the tape transport direction to y on both decks.

Continuous play/record is not possible.

eSet the REV MODE switch to the “p” position. eLoad cassettes into both decks.

eTo make a continuous recording, start with TAPE I.

This cassette deck operates on a delicate microcomputer and there may be occasions when the deck does not function as expected because of external noise or interference. Problems you encounter on such occasions may be cured by turning off the power, waiting for 1 minute or more, then turning the power back on.

ENGLISH

25

Maintenance

If the surface of the deck becomes soiled, wipe it clean with a dry, soft cloth. To remove stubborn dirt, wipe with a cloth slightly moistened with a solution of mild detergent and water, then moisten a cloth with water, wring it well, and rub over the surface.

Do not allow the deck to remain in contact with rubber or vinyl products for a long period of time, as these could damage the surface finish.

Never use volatile cleaners like thinners, benzine or alcohol because they will damage the surface finish.

CAUTION:

For safety, always unplug the power cord before performing any maintenance.

Cleaning the heads

If the head section gets dirty, the recording quality will deteriorate, resulting in degraded playback sound or “drops” in sound. Also, if the tape transport path gets dirty, the tape may get entangled in the rotating parts. It is therefore recommended that the heads, pinch rollers and capstans be cleaned regularly at intervals of 10-hour use with a cotton swab moistened with a commercially available, appropriate cleaning liquid.

NOTE:

Do not make a recording or play back tape when the tape transport path is wet with cleaning liquid, as this could cause the tape to jam or clog.

Précautions de manipulation des bandes cassettes

Instructions d’utilization

<Ne pas ouvrir la cassette ni tirer sur la bande pour la sortir de la cassette.

<Ne pas toucher la surface de la bande.

<Ne pas employer ni stocker la bande dans un endroit humide et poussiéreux.

<Ranger la bande loin de sources magnétiques telles que hautparleurs, postes TV, etc. Sinon, des bruits seraient introduits et vous perdriez vos enregistrements importants.

Bandes cassettes pas recommandables

Vous auriez des problèmes avec ce magétocassette ou celui-ci n’offriez pas la performance prévue si vous utilisez des bandes telles que décrit ci-dessous. De plus, ces bandes s’emmêlent facilement, ce qui aurait pour résutlat des dommages inattendues du mécanisme de transport de la bande.

Cassettes ayant des problème en précision de forme

N’employez pas une cassette déformée qui causent un défilement instable de la bande ou produit un bruit étrange pendant le défilement rapide en avant ou en arrière.

Cassettes d’une durée longue

N’utilisez pas des cassettes C-120 ou des cassettes d’une durée plus longue parce que leur bande est très mince et peut facilement s’étirer ou devenir enroulée dans le mécanisme de transport de la bande.

Cassettes sans fin

L’extrême finesse de ces cassettes peut résulter dans des cassures ou autres problèmes.

Détection automatique du type de bande

Ce magétocassette utilise les trous de détection sur la cassette pour déterminer le type de la bande chargée.

Soyez donc sûr d’utiliser des cassettes avec des trous de détection du type de bande.

<Ce magétocassette est conçu pour la lecture des cassettes normale (type I), chrome (type II) et métal (type IV).

Pour l’enregistrement, utilisez des bandes normale (type I) et chrome (type II).

<Les deux platines sont chacune équipées du détecteur du type de bande, de sorte que vous pouvez utiliser des bandes de types différents simultanément.

Relâchement de la bande

Une bande détendue pourrait s’enrouler sur le galet presseur ou d’autres pièces tournantes. Vérifiez et éliminez tout relâchement de la bande avec un crayon ou un outil similaire inséré dans le trou de bobine.

Protection contre un effacement accidentel

Pour protéger une cassette contre l’effacement accidentel, brisez à l’aide d’un tournevis ou un autre outil similare l’une des languettes en plastique ou les deux (l’une pour la face A et l’autre pour la face B de la cassette) sur le dessus de la cassette. Lorsque cette languette est brisée, il n’est plus possible d’enregistrer.

Face A

Si vous souhaitez par la suite enregistrer sur la cassette dont les languettes sont brisées, fermez les trous avec du ruban adhésif. En faisant cela, faites attention à ne pas fermer les trous de détection du type de bande.

Réducteur de bruit Dolby

Les réducteurs de bruit Dolby sont conçu dans le but de réduire le souffle (bruit de fond) de la bande. Ce magétocassette bénéficie du réducteur de bruit Dolby B.

Le réducteur de bruit Dolby a un effet tant sur l’enregistrement que sur la lecture. A la lecture d’une cassette, vous vous assurez de régler le commutateur DOLBY NR sur la même position que quand l’enregistrement a été réalisé.
