Updating the calibration setting
If you insert a cassette and “[A] CAL” or “CAL [B]”
appears in the display, it means that automatic
calibration data in that deck for that tape type (I, II or
IV) exists. However, we recommend that you repeat
the automatic calibration procedure each time you
insert a new cassette since cassettes of the same type
also vary in their characteristics.
Before recalibrating, be sure to turn off “[A] CAL” or
“CAL [B]” by pressing the DECK A or DECK B button.
Then start from Step 2 of the automatic calibration
procedure.

Adjusting the Recording Level
Automatically (Auto Rec Level)
• The recording level cannot be adjusted properly due
to excessive noise in the program source.
• The program source level is too low and the
recording level does not increase.
During a quiet passage in a program source such as
classical music, the recording level may not increase
for some time. If a high sound level is expected later
on in the track, play that portion first so that the right
adjustment can be obtained.
• The recording level does not decrease for a long time.
The Auto Rec Level function may not work properly
when you try to record sound produced by a graphic
equalizer that has extremely high-level signals.
The Auto Rec Level function automatically measures
the peak signal level and adjusts the recording level
accordingly. The Auto Rec Level function operates
during normal recording, Relay Recording or
Simultaneous Recording on either deck.

How the Auto Rec Level function adjusts the
recording level
While the AUTO indicator is flashing, the deck sets the
recording level as high as possible without causing
distortion. If the signal level rises excessively after the
start of recording, the deck gradually decreases the
recording level.
12
To record with the optimum recording level
• To prevent changes in the recording level after
recording starts, press REC r while playing the
highest sound level portion of the program source to
be recorded. The result is a more natural-sounding
recording.
• If you play the entire program source after the AUTO
indicator has stopped flashing and is lit continuously,
the deck will set the recording level for the portion of
the program source with the highest signal level.

Additional Information
Precautions
Notes on Cassette Tapes
On safety
To protect a recording on side A or B
• Do not disassemble the cabinet — this may result in an
electrical shock. Refer servicing to qualified personnel
only.
• Should any solid object or liquid fall into the cabinet,
unplug the tape deck and have it checked by qualified
personnel before operating it any further.
On power sources
• Before operating the tape deck, check that the operating
voltage of the tape deck is identical with your local power
supply. The operating voltage is indicated on the
nameplate at the rear of the tape deck.
• The unit is not disconnected from the AC power source
(mains) as long as it is connected to the wall outlet, even if
the unit itself has been turned off (TC-WE835S U.S.A. and
Canadian models only).
• If you are not going to use the tape deck for a long time,
be sure to disconnect the tape deck from the wall outlet.
To disconnect the AC power cord, grasp the plug itself;
never pull the cord.
• AC power cord must be changed only at the qualified
service shop.
On operation
• Because of a safety mechanism, the function buttons will
not operate if the cassette holder is not completely closed,
if there is no cassette in the cassette holder, or if a cassette
has been incorrectly inserted into the cassette holder.
• Be sure to stop the tape before turning off the tape deck.
Otherwise, the tape may be damaged.
On placement
• Place the tape deck in a location with adequate ventilation
to prevent heat build-up in the tape deck.
• Do not place the tape deck:
— on a soft surface such as a rug that might block the
ventilation holes on the bottom.
— in a location near heat sources.
— in a place subject to direct sunlight.
— in an inclined position.
— in a place subject to excessive dust or mechanical shock.
On cleaning the tape deck
Clean the cabinet, panel and controls with a soft cloth
slightly moistened with a mild detergent solution. Do not
use any type of abrasive pad, scouring powder or solvent
such as alcohol or benzine.
If you have any questions or problems concerning your
tape deck, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Cover the respective tab hole with adhesive tape.
When you are using a type II or type IV tape, be careful
not to cover the detector slots that the deck uses to
determine the tape type.
Type II
Type IV
Detector slots
Detector slots
On tapes longer than 90 minutes
We do not recommend the use of tapes longer than 90
minutes except for a long continuous recording or
playback. They are very thin and tend to stretch easily.
On handling cassettes
• To prevent the heads and tape path from getting
dirty, avoid touching the tape surface of a cassette.
• Place cassettes away from equipment with magnets,
such as speakers and amplifiers, which may cause
tape distortion or erase the recordings.
• Do not expose cassettes to direct sunlight, extremely
cold temperature, or moisture.

Troubleshooting
If you’ve experienced any of the following difficulties
while using the tape deck, use this troubleshooting
guide to help you remedy the problem. Should the
problem persist, consult your nearest Sony dealer.
The function buttons do not work.
/ The tape deck has been just turned on and does not
operate for about 3 seconds. Wait until P stops
flashing.
/ Check that the cassette is inserted correctly and the
cassette holder is closed completely.
The tape deck does not play or record.
/ There is no cassette in the cassette holder.
/ The tape has come to the end.
/ The tape is slack. Take up the tape slack.
/ The record-protect tab has been removed from the
cassette (see page 18).
/ Make sure the amplifier setting is correct.
/ Check that the tape deck connections are secure.
/ The heads and tape path are dirty. Clean them (see
page 19).
/ The recording/playback head is magnetized.
Demagnetize it (see page 19).
There is excessive wow, flutter or sound drop-out.
/ The capstans and pinch rollers are dirty. Clean them
(see page 19).
There is a decrease in sound level, sound drop-out, or
poor reproduction of high frequencies./The tape does not
erase completely./Noise increases.
/ The recording/playback or erasing head and tape path
are dirty. Clean them (see page 19).
/ The recording/playback or erasing head is magnetized.
Demagnetize it (see page 19).
There is hum or noise.
/ The tape deck is placed near a TV or VCR. Move the
tape deck away from the TV or VCR.
/ The tape deck is placed on or under the amplifier.
Move the tape deck away from the amplifier.
There is an unbalanced tone.
/ Check that DOLBY NR position is the same as when
the tape was recorded. An unbalanced tone may result
when a tape recorded in the S Dolby NR is played back
in B or C, or when a tape recorded in the B or C Dolby
NR is played back in the S (TC-WE835S only).
