Good morning, All.
I'm in the process of digitizing some open reel tapes. Some of the tape is ½ mil Mylar and it SQUEAKS. Is there any kind of lubricant I can use to stop that? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Is there anyone out there who can repair a TEAC X-100R (bi-directional) 4-strack stereo tape deck? It's a beauty, but the tape speed button does not work. It only plays at 7.5 and the torque selector for small and large reel doesn't work. I can't tell in which setting that's stuck. If I play the tape in forward the tape slips out of the guides, but if I play it in reverse it plays just fine.
The thing weighs a ton so the cost of shipping will probably be a killer by itself, but is there anyone out there who can repair those problems?
