Customer Question
I have three Teac...

I have three Teac 3340s from a lot of years ago. all three were working fine. They were playing a recording without any problems. Then I might have made a mistake and over demagnetized the heads. Now, they will still play; but when I go to record something, it always comes out very low.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Very old- Teac 3340s reel to reel tape recorders. I have three of them.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I have been trouble shooting this problem for well over a year now.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

I have tried everything.
