The world's most recommended 8 track technician. Former Top Level. A brief phone call is welcome, but the number of available options is far too great to discuss in depth while I'm working on a customer's unit.
Prices and options are on the right side of this page above the band pictures, as well as on the work order you will be printing and filling out to send with your radio. Anything discussed on the phone is NOT an agreement.
When you print and fill out a work order stating your options and preferences, THEN we have an agreement once I collect payment.
And if it's not on the work order, you didn't request it and it won't be done. I do not participate in "handshake" deals or gentlemen's agreements, as doing this leaves too much room for misunderstandings and arguments later on. Since most new customers ask the same questions, I do ask the customer to first click on any of the flashing purple rectangles you see here BEFORE calling: If you still have questions, of course you are welcome to call or E-mail me.
Please note that I don't do business or advertise locally, and thus do not need to keep normal business hours. I typically work in shifts between 24 and 36 hours, then sleep for 16 hours with zero regard to the time of day.
You might notice that many of my videos are made in the middle of the night Once you have chosen your options and preferences, it's time to print and fill out a work order. This is simply the reality of the industry. The prices of original classic units are skyrocketing, and they're only going in one direction - that's UP. Look up prices IF you can find your modeland that's what you're adding to your repair bill if it arrives with a broken control from careless packing.
Unlike electronic components, controls are generally not interchangeable from one model to another. They are composed of up to 7 or more sections, with each section having a specific resistance, taper and tap percentage.
Combine this with different shaft lengths and replacement becomes hopeless. DON'T push the controls through pieces of styrofoam. All others are considered as "Aftermarket" in my shop. Minor tuner service is included in my rates, but not button replacement.
Don't Believe Me? But Let's Not Stop There! Intense and passionate in life, love, music and work - that's me. Hear, purchase and download my music from ANY major music download site such as Rhapsody, iTunes, etc. Over the years I've seen some clever efforts to repair broken pushbuttons, but they have all been focused mainly on appearance and still depend heavily on the most delicate structural element - thin, brittle plastic. Well, anyone who knows me also knows my passion in every aspect is what?
You guys know I'll fight you tooth and nail - even cancel the job - if you threaten my workmanship longevity by trying to rush me.
You also know I don't accept "just fix this or that" type jobs. In my shop it's do it BEST the first time, or don't do it. Sorry, it's a sickness. I replace the entire set with buttons that will never break again, and this is MY way of repairing this Ford tuner.Automotive Forums.

E13 : Tape Communication Error Cause s : The micro-processor is reading the speed pulses from the tape deck either too fast or too slow.

Correction: Before sending the unit in for service, perform the following procedure: Press the reset button on both the changer and the remote.
The reset button on the changer is located on the front panel of the unit. It can be activated with the tip of a pin. If the unit does not operate after resetting it, remove the magazine by inserting a business card between the magazine and the mechanism.
The lock lever will disengage to allow the magazine to eject. Make sure all CDs are in the magazine and none remain lodged in the carriage. If, upon removing the magazine, a CD is found lodged in the carriage, remove all CDs from the magazine and reinsert the magazine into the changer.We have made a significant investment in specialized test equipment that allows us to perform accurate troubleshooting on your factory radio, and OEM audio system.

They've replaced the drive motor, pinch rollers, belts and have tried to make adjustments. He was not amused haha. The complaint is that after approx. If he changes tape direction everything clears for a few minutes, then the problem returns.
I don't know what's happening after 30 minutes of use that isn't happening when the tape is first inserted.
But while bench testing using my old TopGun soundtrackit acted up exactly how he described. My only guess is that heat is playing a role. I bench tested my NOS Cadillac radio played for hours without a glitch and I'm going to swap the cassette drive from that unit to the Pontiac radio.
What's thrown me off is the Fiero Store's advisement that the belt for the EQ radio with knobs will not work with the EQ radio with touch controls.
I had always thought that tape drives in those two radios are identical Blaupunkt units. Evidently there are some rubber components that are hard that soften as it warms up. When I first get in they tapes don't want to play but then it gets better. Seems weird that it would play for 30 minutes and then start having issues. My results are: It has V pulleys V diameter of.

Both tape units are the Blaupunkt style. I'd like to just swap the tape transport from one to the other but when searching for replacement belts, I saw that the Fierostore states that the belts for the EQ radio with knobs will not work with the touch control radios. The owner is pretty nostalgic about his old mixed tapes. I'd like to make this thing work for him.
Thanks for your help. IP: Logged. Old Lar posts Member since Nov May 3rd, Hey thanks. I called them. They like the rest of the world no longer repair or sell cassette decks.
