Re: national panasonic 8 track recorder

Howard W Sams published service information on radios/TVs etc; They covered the RS-817S in set MHF82--it may be close enough for yours. I don't have it and can't say if it is close or not. Sams is still in business and I hear they charge a lot for copies; their phone number used to be 1-800-428-SAMS. Might still be the same. This guy on eBay is selling sets for $7.98 with free shipping (sounds like a bargain to me; no affiliation to me)

Re: national panasonic 8 track recorder

the RA 6600 is a component stereo with 8 track player/recorder, might be similar to yours, I also have RS 808 which is just an 8 track player/recorder, also might be similar
the RA 6600 is at this link

Heya Stonecat!
I could sure use the RS-808 service manual as I have 2 that I need to overhaul!
Thanks Brother :o)
