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.
change the needle make sure the thread has not come off of the thread take up lever rethread the machine top & bobbin,, make sure to use every thread guide make sure to not over fill the bobbin,, make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
In order to get this to work, you need to bend the battery terminals to make a better connection with the batteries.
1. Open the battery compartment with a screwdriver. 2. Remove any batteries. 3. You need to very slightly bend the positive battery terminals on the top two battery slots. I suggest using a very small flathead screwdriver if you have one. Place the screwdriver between the terminal and the plastic casing and push the terminal toward the center of the battery compartment. 4. Do step 3 for the top and middle battery slot. You don't need to mess with the bottom slot, as it has a different type of terminal connector. 5. Replace the batteries and screw the compartment door shut. Your station should now work!
I dont think you can . I have all the reel deal slots and none of them work with windows 7 directly. There is ittle or no help getting this to work on the EFX support site.
I am just taking the loss and throwing them all out none are worth anything to anybody I cant even give them away.
If there was a Windows 7 help on the support site this could be easier on all who have these.
Probably will no longer purchase the product, because the second there is a change we will be buying them all over again to meet the changes.
There is a surprising interest in "vintage" hifi products these days. Your tape machines probably needs new belts. Check this site out. You can get spares for your tape machine here. Belt kits are $17. He does repairs also, but the transport to and from may be an issue for you. I suggest emailing Bob, he may be able to refer you to someone in CA > I could do the repairs,but I am in Australia. :)
Usually the tension of the take-up reel keeps the shut-off arm taught and everything works. If the shut off arm falls down, the recorder stops. Is that what's happening?
Inadaquate (or NO) take-up tension can cause this; so can WARPED take up reels. Another possibility: if you play a lot of old tapes, the groove in the shut-off arm collects dirt and oxide, so the tape - as it goes through it - jams, and the take-up reel can not overcome the tension. The arm "falls down" and shuts off the machine. Also SOME tapes (which were "cut down" from 2"
tapes) are poorly ****, and will jam some machines.
This is what I do for a living, so if these suggestions don't work, give me more information, and I'll solve your problem.
