Technics cassette deck - Complete Service Manual

Hi hifiengine fans,

I'm looking for the complete service manual for the cassette deck RS-TR180 from Technics.
There is a manual here at:
https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/technics/rs-tr180.shtml

but unfortunately it is only a partial scan with only the schematics page.
I am venturing into replacing the belts of my unit and the complete service manual would be very useful.

Thanks in advance,
Ed.

It's not a partial scan. As per the note on the front page, the manual is intended to be used together with the RS-TR280 service manual.

Thanks a lot, JaS! Next time, I'll read the complete cover page:)

I just downloaded the RS-TR280 Service Manual and will let you guys know how the belt replacement goes.

Regards,
Ed.

FWIW It's quite common for manufacturers to supply updates rather than full service manuals when components are similar to a previous model. Sometimes you just get a single page showing the part numbers for the new front panel and packaging as all that has changed is the model number...

Thank you again, JaS! I just realized after you mentioned:)

I got a new Technics cassette deck (RS-TR515) - it came complete with the receiver and CD player, and I'm trying to find the Service Manual. I was only able to find it in Japanese, and I can't even see the reference as the numbers are also in Japanese.

Please let me know if you come across this one.

Thanks,
Ed.
