I've been tinkering with this tape-deck for about a week. Changed the belts and cleaned/lubed everything.
As far as I can see everything is working - mechanically at least. The tape plays/forward/rewind without issue, but the it doesn't produce any sound.
Do you have any ideas where I should go from here?
Is there a way to check if the tape heads are still working? I mean manually shorting them in order to produce a tone through the speaker? Or using a multimeter to see if they get the proper signals? The wires seem to be in working order.
I'm new to everything audio so any help would be appreciated.
