i've got a situation that others seem to have but i believe the cause maybe something different in my case.
when i turn off my m70, there is a blast from the left channel. it doesn't matter if it's the speakers or headphones. it also doesn't matter if the volume is all the way down. it even doesn't matter if you put the unit into mono mode. the blast always comes out of the left channel.
it's not the power switch because unplugging the unit and not using the power switch to turn it off still presents this issue. i have cleaned the selector switch, record bar, etc. with deoxit and that has fixed other problems but not this. i have also changed the main filter capacitor. the only other thing i was thinking of was my faulty bass fader but then i noticed something.
when the unit powers off, the flywheel of the tape deck does a little spin around. if i disconnect the power cables to the cassette deck, the problem disappears!
is it normal for the flywheel to do a little spin around at power off?
any idea what can be happening here?
