Composite 8 Track AM/FM Stereo Player Refurbish.
I have completed the restoration of a old Stereo player that the previous home owners had left. It was in operating condition and cleaned up quite well. The left channel sound was clipping under normal operating volumes One of the issues with it was a cold solder joint on one of the output transistors. With this repair the sounds came alive and improved considerably.
Other issues were few and the 8 Track Player needed just a bit of cleaner to get it to tun a bit smoother. I was lucky enough to have a few old 8 track cassettes that seemed to work fairly well. I am amazed at how bad that technology was.
