    Hey guys,
    I just picked up a Fostex A8 and i'm having a bit of trouble. Tracks 1-6 work perfectly well and sound great through playback, but track 7's playback is extremely faint and track 8 is completely silent. I can hear what I'm playing clearly when I'm plugged into either channel, but it won't record the signal. Let me know if there is an easy fix to this or if i should take it somewhere to be serviced.

    Problem is fixed! There was just some residue on the recording head. Used some isopropyl alcohol and now it works like a charm! Hope this might help somebody else someday!
