Question about Dictaphone 2740 Desktop Cassette Transcriber / Recorder

Open Question

Works well for a while and then starts to skip words

If the machine has been off for a while and a tape inserted for transcription it works well. As the transcription proceeds it starts to "beep" and at this point I can't hear any transcription and have to keep backing up as the tape is still running ahead. Foot pedal et all working fine...just this skipping and only when the machine is in use for a while. If I turn it off and actually unplug it for a while removing all source of electricity, then it works again...but just for a while...seems like something heats up and that's when the problem begins. Solution?

Skipping stitches


Skipped stitches
1. A bent or dull needle
2. The wrong needle for your fabric
knit fabrics require a jersey or ballpoint tip. Most wovens do well with a universal tip, and specialty fibers, like leather or metallic, usually require specific needles.
3. Incorrect machine threading
4. Unbalanced needle thread tension
Start by making relatively small changes and run a test stitch to evaluate the impact. If you need to adjust the tension dial using woven cotton fabric with good quality all-purpose thread and a new needle
5.check the needle is inserted correctly. The needle needs to be pushed as far up the needle shaft as possible. It's easy to insert the needle half way, clamp it down and think it is inserted correctly.
the flat part of the needle should be positioned towards the back. If the needle is not inserted correctly, it will not be able to pull up the bobbin thread and will cause skipped stitches.
6. If the suggestions don't help then it is time for a tune-up.

Dictaphone use for Medical Transcription


You'll need a digital recorder (Dictaphone makes one - a Walkabout Model 5220). Transferring a recording from an analog (tape) machine to a PC requires a patch cord to hook it up to your PC, then some sort of software to record it while it's playing back.

I have a Olympus DS-4000 which downloads via the cradle to our transcription software. The recording is skipping and we are missing words and up to entire sentences. What could be the problem?


When this happens, in most situations it is the 4-position-slide component which is faulty (or loose between the notches). If you are UK based, contact BES in Luton for a repair (circa GBP70)
