Hitachi D-3500 Cassette Deck, searching manuals for...

Hello ,
I am looking for the service and user manuals on the Hitachi D-3500 Cassette Deck. Mechanically I have been able to restore it by dismantling, cleaning and lubricating it were necessary. I also replaced most of the belts. The problem that I have now, is that it is noisy and humming away on the electrical side and the calibration device only works very erratically. I have searched the internet for information on this deck, but have found next to nothing on it, except that this and the Akai GXC-325D were the first “affordable” 3-head design cassette decks (actually “pioneered” by Ed Nakamichi in 1971/72, as far I know) from about late 1974 > 76.
I'd be very pleased if somebody could upload the manuals or any other information on this machine.
Thank you in advance.
Ear

Hello vladoangelov.
sorry my answer has tacken soooo long.
I myself do still not have any manuals on the Hitachi D-3500 Tape Deck !
I still would like both users & service manuals.
There is an American Ebay-User named "reedsolio" from Roanoke, Virginia, USA,
who has sold some original Hitachi D-3500 Tape Deck service manuals, so you could try there.
You could also share it here at HiFi engine, if you can get anything... it would be nice!!

With kind regards,
Ear
