Teac A5000 Open Reel Tape Recorder

I purchased an older Reel to Reel and can only get one channel to work. I was hoping to have a repair manual before i tear into into it. Does anyone have this unit? It has the AR50 amplifier. Thanks, Joe

Could be a head switching problem, or a record-playback switch problem. They may need cleaning. Try putting it into record mode several times to see if the channel returns.
