EEEK! Equipment failure!
Okay folks, something horrid has happened:
My old 4-track recorder, used now primarily for transferring data to my
digital multi-track equipment got dropped recently.
After this, the belt that the unit uses to move the drive system appears
to have jumped the capstan.
I re-seated the belt, but the whole unit is now about 20% slower than it
was, even when set at its fastest.
I have about ten years worth of four-track tapes I'm attempting to
transfer to CD-r, any suggestions to try and speed this beastie up?
Could it be that an internal speed setting got jostled somehow? It fell
about two to three feet to a carpeted floor.
