Re: EO4

Something is causing either the take up or supply reel in the camera not to rotate when the tape is inserted. A defective tape or hung reel brake can cause this issue. Try replacing the tape, if this does not resolve the problem you may need to seek professional service to have the reels checked. Good luck my friend, Joe Weibel

The most common problem is that the belt for the center pulley comes off. The best fix is to replace the center pully because it is out of tolerance allowing the belt to jump off. Do you have an E03 error code on the screen? This is not a simple repair. The sequence involves a total disassembly, removal of the main board, removal of the mechanism, removal of the mechanism board and cassette-up basket, replacing the center pulley, reinstalling the belt and entire reassembly in reverse order. If you haven't done it before, even as a pro, you're in for a treat...Good luck, magic seadog
