hey all, i need some help with troubleshooting my Tascam 22-2 1/4" reel to reel deck. the guy i bought it from on ebay said it was professionally reconditioned, so i half expected to plug and play. i know very little about reel decks, and haven't done a thing to it, but here's what's happening: using the main outs of my mackie 1402 mixer into the inputs of the reel deck, and the outs of the reel directly to my event tr8 monitors i get clean signal on the vu meters of the reel deck, and clear sound out to my monitors. when i record to tape (quantegy 456 1/4" grand master tape "new in box") the left channel is almost inaudible, and the right is real muddy. i'm hoping this is as simple as demagnetizing the head. i'm not hoping i have to get the heads relapped, or troubleshoot the hardware or mechanical parts. the unit does look well cared for (no obvious nicks or scrathces anywhere). if anyone can help or guide me, i'd be grateful. it'd also be interesting to see if anyone else here bounces to tape! thanks.
