Default Re: Nearly silent output from vantone reel to reel machine

I think I counted 5 transistors on the circuit board - they're the devices in metal cans. The head also looks a bit dirty - this would be enough to stop it recording and make any previously recorded tapes sound pretty dull.

What happens when you touch the head connections while the machine is playing a tape? Do you hear a buzz?
