Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I'll have another look at the drive - I was presuming the same idler wheel that flicks back & forwards for FF & RW, was the same drive for the play/take-up drive.
Like you say - damn good machine - bought it last year 2nd hand, used it for 4 weeks then this happened. Really want ot get it working again - 1st 3head machine I have ever had.
If it uses the same idler(i honestly cant remember now) it may still have drive in ff and rew but not in play because of the reduced torque required and much less mechanical coupling force to the drive surfaces of the idler to the reel base as a result. Cleaning idlers with acetone gets the best resuts. Takes the top layer off!! Be careful not to get it on any non greasy plastics or and external casings(will leave marks). I often use an emery board(for finger nails) to get a decent new rubber drive surface if I cannot reshod a failed idler with a new rubber tyre. Let me know how you go :)
