Just need to be pointed in the right direction on this one: Fired up my 244 the other day. It's been sitting at least a year. Transport/head assembly engaged once, then it stopped, killed the tape. Had to manually disengage it. Belt is a little stretched from sitting but not bad (it had been replaced already). The actual problem is, the control motor itself does not move. I thought it was supposed to engage at power up, or at the very least by control (play/stop etc). I put a 9v on the motor and the motor is working, so it's not the motor itself. I also tested both large caps on the Drive PCB assembly (the board with the motors within the top of the transport assembly) and both tested fine but I replaced the 1000uf since I had them, and I'd still need a 10000uf low-profile cap to do the other - but again it seemed to test fine. I have the service manual, and I've been studying Control Assembly B where U501 and U509 play a part in the motor engaging (or so it sounds by the circuit description). Anyone have any insight to offer on this, that's seen the actual problem where it's not a belt and the motor actually isn't engaging?
