Service Manual Fostex E16

I have 2 Fostex E-16 16 track reel to reel recorders that I bought. One works fine but the other as soon it is powered up the reel motors spin. Nothing stop them aka. hitting stop, play etc buttons. Possibly a sensor or ? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks



Service Manual Fostex E16

Hi dboerst.
Did you fix the problem? Because I have the same problem, only that I have a Fostex B-16 instead of an E-16. But I have the same problem, when I turn it on, one reel spins continuously while the other works fine. And it spins until I turn the Fostex off and it don't respond to none of the buttons.
If you found the problem, tell me about it, so I can do something with that, because I'm missing the Fostex a lot to do my jobs.
Thanks.
Best Regards.
