I somehow can't seem to find any answers to this anywhere else. I am recording to a cassette tape for the first time and it worked for the most part, but I noticed a LOT of static when I play back the tape, and I'm not too sure where it's coming from. I am recording from my phone through a JVC system. Here's what I've done so far:
- The parts were definitely very dusty, but I cleaned everything as best I could using a Qtip and alcohol (as the user manual suggested).
- My AUX wire may not be the BEST but sound directly from my phone plays through the speakers without any static so my guess is the wire/speakers aren't the reason.
- I kept my phone on airplane mode to avoid any magnetic interference.
- The system was next to a TV and an Xbox, but these were powered down so I don't see how it could interfere (but I could be wrong).
Is there still dust that could be causing the static? Anything else I should be doing? Thanks.
