I need to get a user mnual for my multi track machine. I have the Tascam MSR-24S machine with remote. I am getting ready to start using it and I would like to have a manual to read. Also, where can I find an alignment tape for the machine in case I have to align the heads. If I can't find an alignment tape how else can I go about doing that if I need to? Thanks.

Re: Need a MSR-24S User Manual
You might try: http://shop.vendio.com/reelprosound/contact.html
They stock parts and possibly operations manual. This machine is a high end R/R and unless someone has tampered with head alignments, adjustment is not needed. You might inquire about this also

That complexity of the unit can not be repaired remotely. It needs to go to a Technician that is capable. Teac people that are still in the business are Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and Skywave Tape Deck repair in Chicago area. I am the Skywave guy.
If he had it done by a person who knows what he is doing he most likely used a 1/2 track tape recording device. These are different than 1/4 track unit as they are used professionally an for mastering. You would need to find a 1/2 track type deck to play the tape back- they are made by Tascam, Otari, Studer, Pioneer, Sony and other lesser brands.
Very simple solution. Contact Rick at Stereomanuals.com and he will get you a nice reproduction as good as Tascam may have printed. I know this because I buy from him often and I know what the Tascam manuals look like as I was the Chicago Lead Technician in Arlington Heights on Golf Rd.

This machine uses a servo tension system. I am guessing that when you changed the belt you also upset one of the sensors. You will need to get a service manual and go to the tension setting section to verify or correct what is going on. These units were pretty complicated for regular users.
Currys Partmaster do have spare parts for this deck and they do have Technics Remotes, but you will have to look for it there. If you have the user manual it could list the part number of the remote. This will make it easier to track it down. http://www.partmaster.co.uk/cgi-bin/search.pl?query=Technics+remote&frmSFinder_headerSubmit=Search
If he wants you to get parts then I would suggest you get a different Technician. Why would any Technician want to go to the trouble and risk of the customer getting the wrong belt. You can get a set of belts from Marrs Communications for that model. http://marrscommunications.com/tascam-cassette-kits
The model is not a DX44 as that is a dBx unit attached to either a Tascam 44 or 40-4. The tape deck model would need to be determined and when that is done go to Marrs Communications and order the belt kit for that machine and you will get the capstan and counter belt. http://marrscommunications.com/tascam-cassette-kits
