RE: Pioneer RT-1020-L problem--low rec/output on 10"

It sounds like you may need a good cleaning and demagnetizing.Look at your pinch roller and see if it looks glossy and feels kind of glassy smooth. If it does,you need to revitalize it or replace it. Keep in the mind that the bias is different on the cheap Rat Shack take as opposed to the Maxell UD.
