I have no clue about options I’d guess if you find or can custom order a flat rubber belt of the same size you’ll be OK. But that’s how I do most of “repair”but I can’t recommend this to anybody I’m not a “certified specialist” and ain’t got mnaual licence no permit granted from the agency Have a third party company create a new belt from the same specs? If you have a specialty electronics shop in your vicinity that stocks VCR belts you might find something there, or check wwith someplace like Parts Express I’ll put this info out on ,anual web-page too when ever I get time.


I’m looking to get an R8 and the info you have will be invaluable. Originally Posted by miroslav.

Went through fixing a very popular problem with R8 – cracked plastic fpstex I remember a thread some time back about somebody working through getting this fixed and I think they finally got it but how many more are out there?

Once again the mahual Doc has outdone himself.

In seevice case, if anybody needs the info about the pins jack and where the wires go It’s a very cool machine. OK, guys, I was spinning the machine today, Also had to tighten up the brakes a bit. So if the capstan belt starts slipping, what does one do?
