I changed the main drive belt on a reel to reel stereo tape recorder model no A1340 serial no 3642 there is a small wire arm under the play/ record head platform . I believe its the record switch . the arm is not straight looking at machine the arm is straight from switch and go at a 45 degree angle then turns straight and then angles up about a half inch or less . i need to know how to replace this arm ( switch) back into the the head platform so i can start using this recorder
do u have rhe service manual for this machine if so ca i get a copy ?

thanks

This could be a head fault? Another possibilty is the preamp stage. You will need to look for something that would take out both channels. Such as an IC.

Cassette player problem


Sounds like the take-up reel isn't turning. Often the linkage for the take-up reel is used for both Play and Fast Forward. So test the Fast Forward.

I would look for a broken belt or slipping drive wheel. The fact that the tapes are unraveling tells me that the capstan is pulling the tape out of the feed reel.

Try demagnetizing the heads with a head demag device. This is not the same as a bulk tape eraser or a tape demag device.
