Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

RE: Well, piffle, meter lamps are the least of my problems.

First, try other 4 track tapes. It could be just a tape problem.
Next, inspect and clean the heads and guides to be sure that there's nothing that keeping the tape from making full contact with he head surface.
I agree with Inmate51. If it was a amp issue, you wouldn't get sound in either direction.

If you like the deck and you can't resolve this "no sound in reverse" problem, stop using reverse and flip and switch the tape just like the rest of us.

And find a repair guy that won't rip you off! Those guys probably don't know one end of a reel to reel from their ass.
