The machine used to play and record fine on the tapes I have. It's just been stood for a while and not been used. The belt needed replacing which I ordered and replaced but the sound of a pre recorded tape and fresh recorded and playback was muffled. Will look into the demag. Not sure what you...
I did think about alignment. But couldn't find any info regarding this. It's been a few years since the unit has been used. I have tried recording and playback is still muffled on 2 separate hifi outputs.
Sound seems low and slightly muffled on this system. It's been stood for a while. Replaced the belt. Gave it a clean. But the sound seems low and muffled.
Cleaned the heads and ran a couple of reels through. Seems to be getting slightly better but any ideas on how to improve or fix this TIA
