    Excuse me for posting this twice...!

    Today track 1 of my MSR-24 DBX suddenly stopped working !
    When recording signal comes in , meter works.
    When played back nothing on tape !

    Anybody familiar with this problem ?

    Thanks,
    Paul

    Have a look in this order:

    1) Double check the heads are clean,
    2) Check the wiring to the back of the heads, disconnect and reseat.
    3) Pull the channel 1 & 2 board and reseat.
    4) Mount a tape with something recorded on channel 24 backwards so that the sound recorded on channel 24 will play backwards on channel 1, anything there?

    If this does not show up anything swap the channel 1&2 board with channel 3& 4 board and see if the problem moves to channel 3.

    Try this and give us an update.

    Alan.

    Just thought of this, does it record and playback with the DBX turned off?
