Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Tandberg 6000X Tape recorder, about 1970, on which the drive belt has broken. I have another belt, but I don't know how to connect it up. A diagram would be great.
Here is the link for the service manual with a picture of the drivebelt.
Go to the parent directory to find lots of other info for this and other Tandberg equipment.

In terms of "gunk" on tapes, there is much on the web about baking tapes to dry out the hydrophyllic binder, which has weakened and let go of the oxide because it took on moisture from the air. The drying process is easily done with a food dryer. Reactivating the binder temporarily reduces oxide shed and gunking up the heads and tape path, long enough to transfer old recordings to a more stable medium. Most of these problems were with tapes from the 80s. Many original master tapes have been baked before transfer with great sucess. Most of the earlier tapes from 50s through 70s (not not all) didn't suffer from oxide shed. Search for "tape baking" for more info. Good luck.

Hi, I have a 6000x and gone tru several belts, solution: just go to local O-ring sales outlet and purchase either O-ring right size or 1.5 meter of linear O-ring and superglue the perfectly square cut ends together, believe me it works. The belt runs from under the left reel assembly (you'll se the V groove) to the right hand one and makes a cross over the drive pulley/wheel, the left hand belt goes on the top pulley and then onwards to the RH reel assembly and back tru the lower small pulley ending on the LH reel assembly. It sounds more complicated than it is. Anyway this works for, I tried to use two shorter belts one from each side to the drive pulleys but have not had any good outcomes with this approach. Good luck. ps. anyone have good tips about cleaning gunk of 35 year old r2r tapes, quality of sound pretty good but gunk keeps clogging up the heads.
