My Panasonic Microcassette transcriber will no longer accept…

Customer Question
My Panasonic Microcassette transcriber will...
My Panasonic Microcassette transcriber will no longer accept my foot pedal. I can hear the voice clearly but can only stop it manually. I have tried 3 different foot pedals in a total of 4 machines and all give me the same result. If it's not the foot pedal, which obviously it is not, can you direct me to a cause or some sort or can you direct me to a repair establishment near my home, which is on 20th Street and 1st Ave. in New York City.

I am a work at home legal transriber and have never encountered this particular type of problem in over 30 years.

Thank you.

Hi Marion,I will suspect that the most likely cause will be the jack that pedal plugs into

(either poor connections or defective jack).I think most repair centers in your area should be able to diagnose and repair.You can even take to Best buy or Radioshack and they will forward to their service.To find a Panasonic authorized facility in your area go to the following and enter your zip code.

If you have any other questions please ask,Best to you,Joe
