Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Montgomery Ward stereo. The turntable & tuner work. When I first put the 8 track in the player nothing happened. I tried different tapes, it s not the tapes.I tried the track button & you could hear tapes switching tracks throuh the speakers. Then I started jiggling the 8 track and the moter or something started to work but it wasnt picking up the music. Again tried different tapes. Still no music. How do i solve this problem. I cleaned the heads & have tried the matchbook trick. nothing. Please help!
Sounds like either the head is open circuit or more likely the pre-amp for the 8-track has gone. Follow the leads from the head and it should lead you to the PC board of the amp. Check for broken connections first. You should get the pre-amp to buzz by touching the terminals where the head leads join. As you are getting no sound from either channel it might be the power to the board. But if you see a single IC it might have gone. For the power option (if the channels are seperate) suspect the largest electrolytic capacitor on the pre-amp board first.
By the way if you get a buzz from both channels the head has gone.
