    Hey all,
    My first post here. I have a TSR8 that I am all of a sudden having playback speed issues with. I read the manual and found the adjustment pots for the two reels. I don't have a tentalometer, but I got them to feel pretty balanced. The playback is normal for a few seconds, then all of a sudden it starts speeding up, or maybe even slowing down. Is this because I don't have the tension set right? or is there some control board part that might be faulty? Thanks for any advice you can offer
