SOURCE: fostex vf 160ex odd things happening

Jen / Gently, I know you asked your question a long while ago, but I've got a solution. I had been having the same problem with mine for a while but I found an easy fix which worked for me. The outputs were acting weird, sometimes only the left channel would play, sometimes only the right, sometimes nothing. So I took mine apart, looking for a short. I couldn't find anything, so I tried my backup plan - spraying a can of computer duster (compressed air) around every nook and crany. I guess some grime inside was causing the short. Works as good as new now. I'd say first try spraying the duster with the case on, and see if that works, but you might have to take the case off. It's easy to remove.

If you do have to remove the case, here's some tips. Make sure you've had it unplugged for AT LEAST a minute before you go at it to make sure any residual charge is gone. You have to first remove the two black plastic side pieces, then the little metal piece by the cd tray. Then a bunch of screws on the sides, bottom-front, and back top. The wires aren't real long so you kind of have to fold it open. Just hold it open with one hand and carefully spray the duster around everywhere. Ussually duster will come with an extention straw and I recommend using it so the can's nozel doesn't get real close to the electronics (it can get kinda cold sometimes).

Well, I hope this helps you out.

Could be a few problems. Sometimes the lube dries up on the solenoid so it is not engaging. Could have the rewind switch on the circuit board broken loose. possibly needs belts as well.

The dictaphone wont rewind or fast forward and makes a bleeping noise

Does the tape move when you press rewind or fast forward.
If the tape moves for a few seconds then bleeps it sound like a sensor problem.
If it only bleeps when the rewind and fast forward are pressed and the play is ok it sounds like the actuator motor is faulty,this motor enables the rewind and fast forward.
Hope this helps.
