1. TAPE SPEED ADJUSTMENT

i

(Servo Control Amp, Adjustment)

1) Connect‘ a frequency counter to the Line Out-

puts as shown in Fig. 1.

2) Depress 3-3/4 ips (9.5 cm/sec.) Tape Speed Selec-

tor Switch and playback a 1,000 Hz pie-recorded
test tape.

3) Adjust the core of coil L1 (VIO23SC-01) shown

in Fig. 8 to obtain a frequency counter indica-
tion of 500 Hz il%.

4) After the 3-3/4 ips (9.5 cm/sec.) tape speed

adjustment has been completed, depress the 7-1/2
ips (19 cm/sec.) Tape Speed Selector Switch and
adjust Servo Control P.C. Board semi-fixed resistor
VR202 (2 kB) shown in Fig. 8 to obtain a
freQuency counter indication of 1,000 Hz +l/
—0.5%.

NOTE: When making tape speed adjustment, it is

necessary to make the low Speed (3-3/4 ips)
adjustment first. .

2. DIRECT FUNCTION TIME CONSTANT

ADJ U STMENT

1) FWD e REV Time Constant

Adjust System Control P.C. Board semi-fixed
resistor VRlOl (30 kB) shown in Fig. 8 so that
when the machine is switched from FWD to REV
mode or. from REV to FWD mode, the pinch
wheel separates from the capstan in about 3
seconds.

2) Adjust System Control P.C. Board semi-fixed

resistor VR102 (10 k8) shown in Fig. 8 so that
when the machine is switched from F.FWD or
RWD to FWD or REV mode, the time constant
is about 1.5 seconds.

NOTE: When making adjustments outlined in Items

2. 1) and 2. 2) above!‘ when the machine is
switched from the various modes to FWD
or REV, confirm that correct capstan motor
(servo motor) revolutions are reached by
the time the pinch wheel contacts the
capstan.

6. 4-CHANNEL PHASE CHECK

Method A

1) Connect front left signal and from right signal
from the line output terminal to vertical and
horizontal input terminal of Oscilloscope. (See
Fig. 28)

2) Playback a 250 HZ “O” VU pre-recorded test
tape at 7-1/2 ips.

3) If front left and front right are In-Phase, the
Waveform as shown in Fig. 29 will appear on
the oscilloscope screen.

4) If phase is 180° out of phase, a waveform as
shown if Fig. 30 will appear on the oscilloscope
screen.

5) Make the same check on front left/rear left and
rear left/rear right.

6) The line outputs should be In-Phase, if not, Re-
cording/Playback Head needs adjusting.

OUT-0F PHASE -5dB Fig. 31

Method B (See Fig. 31)

1) Playback a 250 Hz “0" VU pre-recorded test
tape at 7-1/2 ips.

2) Connect front left signal and front- right signal
of line outpUt terminals in parallel and connect
this to a high sensitivity V.T.V.M. (Model 161A).

3) If In-Phase, the line output will be about +4 dB.

4) At 180° out of phase, the line output will be
about #5 dB.

5) Make the same check on front left/rear left and
rear left/rear right.
