Just put in my first tape for the 2740. Even SLOW is too fast. I don't see an option for changing it. Am I missing something?

Panasonic SC-AK45 stereo not playing cassette tapes


I may not have worked on one of these before but all tape decks have some common drive parts. Yours is missing the proper torque to drive the reel table in take-up for play and your fast wind observation also points to either drive transfer problems or the motor itself. I suspect the fastest answer is to have a tape deck technician work on it. Dual cassette decks are not known for being the long lasting products like a singles cassette deck is.

Tape won't play


Can you come up with a more descriptive issue than tape won't play?
At the service counter I used to get complaints like the deck is broke.
I asked what is broke about it- Technicians spend a lot of time trying to find out what is not working on a unit and can miss the problem entirely as it is not stated- all this time costs the customer in the long run.
Technicians want to get the problem and deal with it. Something like it has no take-up, or the speed is off or slow, or the deck will not engage play, or the fast winds do not work. Get the idea?

Dictaphone ExpressWriter system - tape will not rewind, play, ff


Is this a standard-size cassette unit? Is the model number a 2740 or 2750? When you first plug the power in, does the machine make two clicking noises? Does the display show 'CAS' or 'No Cassette'?

Dictaphone Expresswriter 2740 Tape Won't Move


The problem is with the capstan motor. More than likely it has developed a 'flat spot' and won't spin up. The clicking noise you hear is the solenoids trying to pull the heads into place, but because the motor isn't turning, it can't pull the heads into place.

Try another cassette. There is a tab on each side of the back edge of a tape which when removed will prevent most machines from going into record. If the tab is there (and not bent in), then the switch at the back of the cassette compartment is dirty or out of adjustment. If you can find a manual for the 2740 (try at www.nuance.com, they bought Dictaphone), it will show how to change the Letter display back to a timeline. Good Luck.

More than likely then the drive belt is broken or the motor is bad.
If you press the reset button the 88.8 flashing should go to 00.0.
If you are sure the tape is good, there is also a switch at the rear of the cassette compartment to detect if the record prevention tab is missing from the cassette itself. If the tab is in the cassette, the switch could be dirty or out of adjustment.

"No Cassette"


There is a small switch mounted ion the tape deck. You may be able to take it apart and slightly bend the switch upwards so the switch will be activated.

Just had the same problem!!! You have to press FF and Play at the same time to stop the fast play!

This is probably way overdue and you won't even get it, but just in case someone else has this problem...here is the answer!!

My VCR is playing too fast


try recording on a blank tape and setting the tape speed to SP (standard play). you should also see options for (LP-long play) and SLP (super long play). I think your machine is stuck on SLP option. if no-go, look for a manual on the web.
