    please help with problem channel on MX5050-8

    on Channel 8, I can only record a very very low signal to tape. I get a normal level if I monitor the input signal, but when I monitor the repro head (or playback from the sync head), I get an extremely low level, like 20dB less than the input signal.

    When I try to adjust the repro level or sel-rep level trim pot, it doesn't seem to do anything.

    Playback of pre-recorded material is normal, it only occurs when I try to record new material.

    I swapped channel cards and the problem is isolated to channel 8 on the deck, not the channel card.

    All other channels work fine. Erase, sync and repro heads are clean.

    any ideas?
