The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and
Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.

I want to voice record text books in a format for my son to listen to - he has dislexia. What should I buy?
There are several Freeware Text-to-Speech and some very expensive Text-to-Speech available on the internet, but to the best of my knowledge there is nothing available at any price that will do a proper job --the easy way.
This is why all "books on tape" or CD or whatever else, are performed by real people. Check in your local library. :-)
If you really want to voice record text books for your son to listen to, you are the only one who can do it. It is a labor of love. Or you can hire a student radio announcer.
At your local second hand stores you'll be able to get yourself a decent cassette tape recorder/player and a decent plug-in external microphone, with an ON-OFF switch. That should be an investment of not more than $20.00 to $30.00
The 60 minute cassette tapes are the more durable ones, and can be had for about $1.00 each.
Much information is available on the Internet about how to record your voice on tape.
For converting your tapes to MP3, my choice is a freeware named Audacity.
The benefit of this software is that not only it has professional features, but it has excellent on-line manuals and step-by-step instructions.
After that, it is only a question of trial-and-error until you are happy with the final outcome.
It is time and effort well invested.

A loud beep on a 2710 dictaphone
There is a couple reasons way your unit can beep.
#1 not tape on the unit
#2 if you trying to record maybe the cassette tab on the cassette is broken to protect a recording
#3 it can be at the end of the tape
#4 try to play and make sure tape moves if tape don't move possible broken belt or bad motor
If none above you can send an email to email@example.com or call (805) 644-9525. Please indicate model and detailed description of problem.
