Solved Pioneer RT 707 Tags: Pioneer Audio Last response: September 11, 2010 4:19 AM in Home Audio Share quatroamigo August 27, 2010 4:56:52 PM Hello, When playing a 7" tape before it get to the end it will start dragging. What is the problem. Thanks More about : pioneer 707 Best solution Anonymous August 27, 2010 10:41:53 PM If the drive and pinch wheel are not gripping the tape (or the motor is failing) one symptom may be this. Think about the gearing effects on the take up spool as the diameter of the tape on the spool increases -- and the gearing effect on the feed spool as the diameter of the tape on the spool reduces. There may also be an adjustment to reduce or increase the braking on the feed hub (maybe just electric damping). I would also check that broken tape hasn't jammed either hub. This all may sound a bit esoteric but I had some experience of rebuilding Ferrograph and Revox tape decks (in the distant past). While the Pioneer reel decks were very cute they weren't of much use in a pro environment. quatroamigo September 4, 2010 9:12:03 PM quatroamigo said:Hello, When playing a 7" tape before it get to the end it will start dragging.
