Thanx in advance



Re: Service Manual Sony TC-378 tapercorder

you will find the manual for the TC 377 in the library of this site, I think it will be very close to the TC 378 especially the tape transport, I do have a service bulletin on the 378 but it only changes the part number on the idler assembly. If the manual is missing anything I do have the manual.

I made a mistake saying I have the 377 manual, my binder jumps from 377 to 399 with only a few service bulletins in between, that comment was for the TC 570 post.

Thanks you for your comment.
The owner manual from the TC-377 is indeed very close to the TC-378.
The service manual from the TC-377 must be more different than from the TC-378.
I have problems with the speed 19cm/sec. especialy and by recording there is a lot noise.
The noise suspression and bias are different from the TC-378.

Thanx a lot
