Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have an old TEAC 144 4 track studio. I have not used it for a number of years and although it plays back the sliders crackle badly as if they are contaminated with dust. Is there an easy fix?
Yes, there is a very easy fix! It is probably just collected dust and crud in the sliders causing the problem.
Get some electrical contact cleaner (available at places like RS, Maplin etc.), stick the nozzle down into the slider slot and give a short squirt. Quickly slide the fader up and down for about 10-15 seconds and this should cure the problem.
You may even be able to get away without using contact cleaner - Sometime just repeated movement of the faders is enough to do the trick.
