    Hello all.

    Maybe it's the first time I've noticed it, perhaps it's a fault condition, I'd like your opinion.

    With the machine at idle, and with no tape inserted I noticed that both spindles (onto which the pinch rollers press) are in constant motion. Tapes play, rewind and fast forward OK.

    As I type this I suspect it may be a clutch issue? If so, can it be adjusted or do I need a new one (stop laughing). Otherwise I'm at a loss.

    All replies respected and appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Les.

    despite having had a chuckle i am wondering if the capstans should operate when a cassette is inserted ?, there is a switch to detect this, someone will let you know im sure ,

    CT-F1250 capstans turn whenever power is applied, unlike some other high end Pioneer models.

    Enjoy,
