You can find the manual here: http://web.archive.org/web/20050111070512/http://www.avs.ca/uploaded_files/owner_manuals/841558_reel_media_center_ib.pdf

As for the reels, there are 2 possible solutions:

1: Try to find new old stock reels. The website for Polyconcept
USA (which made the Reel media center) has been down since 2008, so the company may have gone bankrupt.
I found one internet shop that may still have blank reels for sale: www.americanbargain.com/product.asp?productid=7008

2: You can use 1/8" Nagra reels which are still being made, the tape is the same 1/8"(3.175mm) width as the tape used on the Reel Media Center.
The Nagra reels have a different hub, so you will need to improvise and make your own hub adapter.
I found reels like that on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/NAGRA-SN-METAL-REELS-for-SN-SNN-SNS-SNST-10-REELS_W0QQitemZ400026885481QQcmdZViewItemQQptZVintage_Electronics_R2?hash=item400026885481&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

Reels for RCA Reel Media Center and Spirit of St. Louis are 7.5 and specaility reels that will work ONLY on these (2) machines. I bought RCA Reel Media Center several years ago and it came with only (1) tape! I stocked up when I finally located a vendor that had them for sale.
I have (50) of the reels new in the box if you would like to buy them I am willing to part with some of them.

The auto stop mechanism seems to have completely stopped working. When play a cassette, it eats it. When you put the deck into play mode without a cassette and push on the pinch roller with your finger, it...


When's the last time it was cleaned? It surely needs it now.

Never touch the any part of the transport that directly contacts the tape with bear fingers.

This sounds like a failure of the take-up (left) reel to take up slack as it's fed in by the capstan.

You can probably trust the machine to fast forward or rewind a tape to test the ability of the reels to manage slack since either action only requires one reel to pull while the other just coasts. Failure would look like stationary tape that eventually would time out and reset the command.

If it won't do fast transport motions that eliminates the capstan/pinch roller.

If it CAN FF and REW then the capstan, pinch roller, heads or something is probably glommed up with sticky tape oxide, which brings us back to the first question.

RCA cable has broken off in the RCA ''in'' ports. How do I get small pieces out of ports to insert new RCA cable?


Tweezers, the center of the original broken cable is hollow. If you have a pair that are like needle nose pliers, they work the best. They go to a straight point (^) rather than the typical slanted type (/) Hope this helps.

Auto-stop malfunction and stuck cassette door


Hi I'm not familiar with your particular model, but the auto stop problem is common and is usually the result of a slipping drive belt, or bad idler/reel drive. The auto-stop works by popping a small tooth like plastic or nylon piece attached to an arm, when you runout of tape and takeup reel pulls the tape tight. The auto-stop mech can get contaminated with dust, and not work, or the reel for some reason does not pull the tape tight enough to fully engage that piece and the result is a ticking sound. As the deck now has your tape, I suspect the main drive belt is broken or probably slipping, and all will work fine if it is replaced. Although changing the belt is not difficult, you should probably take it to a repair shop, as getting the right size is important, and the deck may have to be dismantled to change it. Hope this helps, good luck!
