re: X-1000

Hello,
I am a "newbie" to this site, and just wanted to ask a few questions. A few years ago, a friend gave me a Teac X 1000 R. He said it's been sitting in his house for years, and he never got around to repairing it. He was told it just needs a belt.
Is this a standard, simple "DIY" fix, or would it be wiser to have it professionally serviced?
Is this machine worth it?
Although I used to, in this day and age, I don't really"need" to start fooling with reel to reels again, but this deck looks so awesome, I feel it would be such a shame to have it sitting in my house in disrepair.
Any thoughts?

re: X-1000

has problem with cue,sfc,sfz when ff or frw any suggestions on how to correct this? I have to hit power off when it gets going fast but if i go in short bursts of speed it works as expected. Sounds like either braking system or the memory presets.

I just got my X1000 working, here is a article i found that was very helpful, and it tells you how to fix the problem your talking about. Hope this helps.
