re: TC-366

Resurrecting an old friend.

Been in storage a decade..

Cleaned it up and will fast forward and rewind..BUT

Nothing happens when put in play mode and will not stay in the position.

HOLDING in the position does..have sound of something trying inside..

But will not play or stay..

Any ideas ...truly appreciated!

re: TC-366

Maybe the Automatic Shut-off Mechanism is the problem

re: TC-366

How difficult is it to change the helper belt on this model? What needs to be done?

TC-366 Runs Slow.

I have a TC-366 R2R deck that seems to run fractionally slow.
It had been sitting for some time when I got it a few years ago.
It worked for a while and then I went to use it bit ago and it runs slow.
I have heard mention that there are motor capicitors that may need attention/replacement.
I just downloaded the manual so I will get into this a little further.
This unit may need belts and a proper lube.
Mechanics I can sometimes figure out but electronics are not my thing.
Any help is appreciated.

re: TC-366 Runs Slow.

Hi,
I am an electronics tech with experience in open reel tape decks along with a lot of other things. If it's only running slow the drive motor may be slipping (lagging) the 50 or 60 Htz (depending on country) applied to it. Check the phase shift cap with a capacitance meter, remove connections before measuring (replace as necessary). Make sure motor is well lubricated (bearings) .

The idler rubber may also be the culprit. It can be re-rubberized at Terrys' pinch rollers, for 40 big ones. I'm deciding whether to do this on mine. It also needs a new helper belt, and the capacitors are 40 years old.

JR..Thanx for the

JR..Thanx for the hint......
I may take a look the belts and idler pulley this weekend.
thanx again .
