Home Tape Trail

Reel to reel, cassette and other analogue tape formats.

Thanks for your advice.

I had tried other tapes, checked to see if the tape was held against the heads, cleaned the tape path, checked cables, and found nothing.

Your suggestion that it might be a switch led me to open the back and see if there was something simple that could be taken care of. There was.

The common ground on the left meter had broken free. Why is took several days after I had removed and replaced the meter is beyond me. But a few minutes of soldering, and I am listening to Mahler symphony as this typed.

And yes, my basic nature is pessimistic. I always expect the worst. Upside? A lot of pleasant surprises. As this was.

Thanks again.
