Have you ever tried to set the volume to 0?

My recollection, of using a Sharp twin-deck Cassette machine to copy computer programs, was that if you set the output volume to 0 it also set the tape-to-tape volume to 0, so you ended up with a tape of silence.

I don't know how common that was, but it wouldn't surprise me if that was the case here.
