Default Re: Fostex E16 - any experienced here?

Ok, Fostex is coming back to life.
All problems are down to two voltage regulators being completely out of spec. These are the ones that are strapped to the big heat sink at the top of the machine.
Being calibrated now. Track one is weak but 2 to 16 are in good shape. Down to poor calibration at manufacture. The tech may have some Fostex heads that can be assessed for relap. He used to work on these for KGM and they'd just remove and replace with new and not bother with relapping. May have a good one.
Thanks for all your help.
