picked up a 1980 with eject problems (the pinch arm grease was dried up and the pinch arm was stuck)
downloaded the manuals, took it all apart, after 2 days... im 90% sure it aligned properly
now, heres whats goin on...
the minute you plug it in, it tries to pull a tape in
if you take the cassette deck off, you power it up and nothing happens (like it should)
if you put your finger by the LEFT and MIDDLE photo sensor, nothing happens
if you put your finger by the RIGHT it acts like the above problem and tries to take a tape in
if you notice when the deck is normal eject, that right photo sensor hole is blocked
when the cassette deck is down, that photo sensor hole is open
so its almost like the photo sensor is acting backwards
or the deck is wrong (dont think it can go any other way)
also i went the through and resoldered everything on the k mech pcb board
right after i finished to write that it all made sense...
the deck alignment was WRONG
the right photo sensor hole needs to be OPEN at EJECT
now i just need to know what the cartridge gear is supposed to look like at eject?
