re: 1800L

Wondering if anyone has any experience with this reel to reel player/recorder. I get good sound out from the rear out audio jacks to s set of external speakers,but get no sound out from the internal speakers.

re: 1800L

I just got one today from a local old timer who had it sitting in his basement since “who knows when” it does not work. He said it worked great then one day the tape would not turn. I have not taken it apart yet, I downloaded the service manual but haven't found any other manuals, have you found anything? Can you upload it if you did? Stormie, Did you solve your internal speaker problem?

re: 1800L

Hi Stormie,

have you checked the speaker \ mute toggle switch on the back of the unit?
