    Dear God Why Do People Think Using The Internet Gives Them Relief From Having To Use Puncuation Dont They Realize That It Makes It So Much Harder To Read I Mean If They Want People To Give Up Their Time And Help Them Maybe They Could Offer The Consideration Of Proper English Is That Too Much To Ask It Drives Me Nuts And Whats Up With The Caps Lock Thing

    Maybe he's using an IBM 7090, which doesn't suppose lowercase?

    At first I thought he was trying to kill the Ghost of FM... glad it's just his tape machine.

    Ha. I thought for a moment when I read the title that he was talking about The Ghost of FM too, but I thought it was like a "can't keep a good man down" kinda thing.

    BELIAL BEST BET IS TO CONTACT TASCAM IN CALI THEY HAVE THE MANUALS OR TRY AND FIND A USED ORIGINAL DON'T BOTHER TRYING TO SAVE $ ON A COPY YOU'LL END UP HAVING MISSING PAGES OR DETAIL ON THE SCHEMATICS THAT YOU CAN'T READ WHAT PART OF THE WORLD ARE IN SO WE CAN RECOMMEND A TECH I'M ASSUMING YOU HAVE CLEANED THE HEADS REALLYREALLY GOOD AND HAVE DEMAGNETIZED YER TAPE PATH WITH A PROPER DEMAG UNIT THAT IS THE PLACE TO START

    Hm...*sigh*...nope, I think I like the other way better.

    At some point in your life, you're probably going to want a job that pays enough to buy a house and take care of your children. No one that I know who earns a nice living speaks or writes like that. It's difficult to read, and gives everyone the impression you are some punk kid. You came here to ask a question and few would help you because of how you communicate.

    Y B SO ANAL? Because the real world works better for people who follow normal, adult protocols.

    (Sorry to vent. Pent-up frustration over reading too many posts typed that way. Had to take it out on someone).

    Demagnetizing the heads will solve the problem, you need to calibrate the azimut, bias, etc.. in order to solve your problem. BTW that guy is right about the punctuation, is hard to understand man, we are trying to help but its hard to read what you are saying.
