Common Faults


Track-jumping 

Symptom: This occurs when the playback head jumps from, for example, track A1 to A3, instead of switching to track A2, during continuous play.

Cause: This is usually caused either by (i) a failure of the pilot tone recognition circuit, or by (ii) the introduction of a hum as a result of a defect elsewhere.

Remedy: Have the fault repaired by an experienced, skilled engineer.
