just got my first reel-to-reel. played the test tape, and it needs an alignment, big surprise. here is what the manual says:
"Access to these adjustments is possible by swinging down the front panel of the recorder.
...NOTE 1: By removing the four screws, the amplifier panel hinged at the lower side, can be swung down to make adjustments from the front side"
I have been unable to find where this occurs, or exactly which "four screws" they are talking about. I have tried all of them and nada. It is a fostex e-16, and looks similar to any tascam, otari, etc. any help on how to access these controls????
