last week tecnical service finished with my unit , and put all parts of the spares kit . But it continues with a problem as tecnical service told me: when you start it the tape get wobbling.

do you know why it do that?

they dont know why.they ask me about a skecth o diagram of the unit to check if it has any parts in wrong?

have anyone a diagram o skecth on PDF and dont mind pass me to check what is wrong?

Sounds to me like a tape transport issue. I've never used an HH but there's I'm sure there's some kind of spring with felt that puts pressure on the tape (similar to echoplex) which helps keep the tape moving smoothly across the heads. If your unit is missing the spring & felt or if it's not applying good pressure then try fixing that up first.

Aside from that, new tape and light lube on the rollers would help too.

This world is all about desire. If you desire something enough, focus with all your heart and mind, it will manifest.
