Question about Olympus XZ90 Microcassette Tape (XZ-90, XZ 90)
Tape tore from wheel - not attached. Is this fixable??? Very important document contained on tape so we need to get it repaired. Help!
If the tape has ripped from the wheel itself then you can glue it back to the wheel with a good strong glue (I'd recommend araldite), or if the tape has ripped you can use sellotape to fasten the two sections back together.
I believe this cassette is moulded plastic so what you will need to do is carefully break it apart along the central seam to access and repair the tape itself, then use your strong glue to glue it back up after the repair is done. You have to be really careful dong this so as to not get glue inside the tape itself and gum up the mechanism.
Finally make sure you leave it to set properly before you try and play it (refer to the glue packet), for araldite I think its 24 hours. Also if you use glueto stick the tape back to the wheel make sure that is set before you reassemble the cassette or your wheel will get jammed.
