5-2. Cautions in handling the mechanism
(1) Cut washers removed at the time of part replacement etc. should be
replaced with new ones without fail.
(2) Because no volume adjustment is available in this mechanism, cleaning or 1.5 or less
part replacement should be performed if the setting is not satisfied.
(3) About oil Fig. 1
a) Be sure to use the specified oil. (If any oil other than the specified oil is
used, various troubles will occur.)
b) When lubricating the bearing, be sure to oil free from foreign particles
such as dust. (If oil in which foreign particles such as dust are mixed is
used, it will cause wear and seizure to the bearing.)
c) The term "One drop of oil" here means the amount of oil on the point of
a needle etc. shown in Fig.1.
(4) Repairing of circuits, final adjustment of running system, etc. should be
performed with the cassette controller assembly installed in the mechanism.
(5) When operating the mechanism singly, apply voltage to the loading motor
to drive it. The voltage between the terminals should be 3 to 4V DC. (Do
not apply external voltage to the loading motor with the mechanism
connected with the main circuit board. Doing so could cause a failure.)
(Turning the gears forcedly by hand may cause them to get damaged.)
When placing the mechanism singly, use an appropriate spacer so that the
capstan motor is not rubbed.
(6) When installing the cassette controller, push the portion indicated by "A" in
Fig.2. Do not push other portions.
(7) Take care not to deform the components of the mechanism.

6. ADJUSTING AND CHECKING OF MECHANISM
The items described here are relevant to the general on-site servicing (field service). This section does not cover adjustment and
replacement for which sophisticated equipment, jigs and techniques are required.
In order to maintain the initial characteristics of the mechanism, it is necessary to perform maintenance and inspection and also it is
essential not to damage the tape etc. In the case of an adjustment that requires a jig, be sure to use the specified jig.

(1) When adjusting and checking the mechanism, be sure to see that the power supply and the status are as indicated in
Caution on the title.
(2) Do not apply external voltage to the loading motor with the mechanism connected with the main circuit board. (Doing
so could cause a failure.)
(3) When running the tape, be sure to do so with the cassette controller assembly installed.


6-1. Checking of PB (REC) winding torque
AC adapter used, Cassette controller assembly installed
(1) Set the torque cassette with the cassette controller installed in the mechanism. In the SP record mode (or in the PB mode
if signals have been SP-recorded on the tape), check that the winding torque is within spec.
(If there is a torque ripple, read the center value.)
0.7+0.2/-0.05Nm, Ripple: 0.1mNm or less

6-2. Checking of VS-REW winding torque
AC adapter used, Cassette controller assembly not installed (Mechanism only)
(1) Remove the cassette controller, turn ON the down SW while referring to 8-3, operate
in the test mode (T01) and select the VS-REW mode.
(2) Set the torque gauge in the S reel table, push the tip of the tension pole with your finger
in the direction shown by Arrow A to release the tension band, and check that the
winding torque is within spec. (Fig.1) (Do not apply the own weight of the torque
gauge or rotate it during measurement.)

Fig.1 How to release the tension
(If there is a torque ripple, read the center value.) band when measuring the
1.5 0.15Nm, Ripple: 0.15mNm or less VS-REW winding torque
(3) After checking the winding torque, remove the torque gauge and turn OFF the down
SW. The mechanism will automatically go into the standby mode.

6-3. Checking of height of reel table
3 to 4V DC, Cassette controller assembly not installed (Mechanism only)
(1) Remove the cassette controller. (Refer to 8-2.)
(2) Apply 3 to 4V DC to the loading motor while referring to 8-1 and select the
PB mode.
(3) Fit the holes of the master plane to the two guides (portions A and B) shown
in the Fig.2, taking great care not to allow master plane to strike the running
parts such as the drum and guide roller or the MIC contact.
(4) Using a pair of vernier calipers etc., measure the heights of the reel-supporting
faces of the S reel table and Tu reel table from the top face of the master plane
and check that the measured heights satisfy the set values. (Fig.3)
A B
When measuring the height of the S reel table, push the tip of the tension
pole with your finger in the direction shown by Arrow A to release the tension
band. (Fig.1)
(5) If the measured height does not satisfy the set value, replace the reel table
and make checking again. MIC contact
After replacement, select the L start mode (see 9-1) and check that the

7-4. Coarse adjustment of running system
(Cassette controller installed)

1. Adjustment of height of Su and Tu guide rollers

Inlet side Outlet side
NG NG
(1) Play back the alignment tape for running system
adjustment and make adjustment so that the inlet 1/4 shift Normal 1/4 shift
and outlet sides of the envelope become flat.
(2) In states of [+1/4 shift] and [-1/4 shift], make
adjustment in the same manner as described in (1)
above.
2. Checking of V/SR envelope waveform

(1) In the V/SR mode, check that the envelope waveform
is shaped uniformly.
(2) If the envelope waveform is not shaped uniformly, B
A
fine-adjust the guide roller and Tu guide.
Make adjustment so that A B.


3. Checking for wrinkles in tape Tu guide
Wrinkle
Pinch roller

(1) In the PB mode and V/SR mode, check the tape for
distortion between the Tu guide and the pinch roller. Distortion
- If wrinkles are found, make adjustment within a Distortion
range of 180 degrees.
- After making adjustment, apply loctite adhesive to
the tip of the shaft.


4. Checking of envelope waveform rise time

(1) Check the envelope waveform rise time in switching from the V/SR mode to the PB mode. - 5 seconds or less
(2) Check the envelope waveform rise time in switching from the STOP mode to the PB mode. - 5 seconds or less




7-5. Final adjustment of running system
(Cassette controller installed)
1. Adjustment of height of Sup and Tu guide rollers

(1) If the ratio of MIN to MAN of the envelope waveform is less
than 60%, adjust the height of the guide roller again. (See
Fig.1.)
(2) Perform unloading and then loading again, select the PB
mode and check that there are no significant changes in
the envelope waveform. Fig.1


2. Adjustment of PB SWP

(1) Play back the alignment tape for SW point adjustment.
(2) Using the adjustment remote control, make SWP automatic adjustment.
(3) Check that an OK is given as a result of self-judgment. In the case of a NG, adjust the GR height again.


* After replacement of the mechanism and drum, adjust the phase and equalizer using the adjustment remote control.

8. ASSEMBLING OF MECHANISM SECTION AND PART REPLACEMENT
(DISASSEMBLING AND ASSEMBLING)
This section describes the method of assembling the mechanism section and the method of part replacement.
For how to remove the cabinet etc., refer to "4. DISASSEMBLY OF THE SET".

1. Cut washers removed at the time of part replacement etc. should be replaced with new ones without fail.
2. When assembling the mechanism, take care to prevent screws, washers and foreign matter from getting into it. If such things
get into the mechanism, it will cause the mechanism to malfunction.
3. Be sure to use the specified cleaning liquid, oil, grease and loctite adhesive shown below. Failure to do so will cause the
mechanism to malfunction.
Oil: Cosmo Hydro HV22 (Cosmo Oil) Loctite adhesive: 1401B (Three Bond)
Grease: Molykote YM-103 (Dow Corning), Suncall CFD-409Z (Sankei Chemical Co., LTD.)
Cleaning liquid: Industrial ethyl alcohol

8-1. Mechanism mode
To operate the mechanism singly, apply 3 to 4V DC to the loading motor.
(Do not apply external voltage to the loading motor with the mechanism connected with the main circuit board. Doing so could cause a failure.)
(1) Ejection mode (2) Standby mode
This mode is used to take out a cassette. In this mode, the This mode is used to set a cassette. In this mode, the slide
ejection lever is shifted farthest in the direction shown by chassis is farthest away from the drum and the ejection lever
Arrow A. (In this mode, the cassette controller assembly is turned (the cassette controller assembly can be locked).
cannot be locked.) (The tip of the ejection lever is hidden behind the main chassis
and the moving part of the down SW is visible.)
