Pioneer CT-F1000 Recording Problem
I just won a Pioneer CT-F1000 cassette deck on eBay and it plays pre-recorded tapes flawlessly; an awesome machine!
So using my newly downloaded manual, I hooked up everything according to the diagram; pretty much goof-proof.
While adjusting the recording level, the needles in both dB meters were pegging right where the manual says they should be - between -3 ~ 0. Using a freshly unwrapped TDK-SA100, I begin the recording process. Both dB meters still pegging properly. After recording, I listened to the playback and the left speaker (and dB meter) is playing strong but the right speaker/meter are barely putting out any sound/movement.
Curious, I attempted to try this with the receiver as the source. The same thing: recording level check and recording itself looks perfect on the meters, but plays strong/reads strong only on left side. The right side is WAY too weak.
Any ideas on what this might mean? Thanks in advance!
