    Unhappy No Rewind On Tascam TSR8

    Hi Guys,

    I have an interesting TSR8 problem. My deck enters FF mode when I press RW.
    I had taken it apart to adjust the brake tension because it was coming to a gradual halt after pressing RW.
    After adjusting the brake tension I decided to go after the squeeking noise in the reel motors.
    I dissasembled, cleaned, oiled, and reassembled the reel motors. No more squeek !
    However, in the process I "kinked" the break band for the take up reel table.
    I was able to retension the brake fairly close to spec so I didn't think it was a big deal.
    Now, My transport is all screwed up !
    Gaaah !

    In play, the tape spews off the machine due to different speeds of the reel motors. FF sort of works but runs out of control. AND RW acts like FF !

    I thouht it might be tape tension, so I removed the reels and applied pressure to the tension arms while running the transport buttons. RW still rolls in the FF direction.

    Any Ideas ?
    I have the manual but I am not sure where to start.

    Thank You,

    Forrest

    Sounds like the supply (left-hand) reel motor isn't working. Check your connections, check to make sure it's getting voltage.

    Your original problem might have been Sticky Shed Syndrome. Are you using Fresh tape?
    Quite frankly, I'd rather just go sailing.
