Customer Question

I have Sony DTC-A7 Dat machine that won't playback working DATs. DATs play in another device wihtout issue. In A7 the speed (44.1 or 48) flashes and the heads spin through the tape but no sound, no VU meter.

I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
If you haven't already done so, try cleaning the DAT heads.
Let me know if that helps.
