Default Help with Hitachi SDT-2480 Tape Deck

Hi all

I'm looking for someone who can take a look at this music centre tape deck. I have been repairing the music centre and done a lot to the turntable which needed a lot of work as well as the tape deck which didn't work at all initially.

The tape deck has had a lot of new capacitors fitted and a new belt and now it plays back fine. I have a problem with record and it looks to be related to the record bias circuitry. It will try to record but it is heavily distorted and I can't set the bias voltage as per the service manual and it seems unstable. I really don't know much about the working theory of cassette recorders so it's something that I am limited at repairing.

I'm really looking for someone midlands based who can take a look at it as I can't really post the whole thing but if someone can take the deck on its own and set it up with an external PSU or whatever else you will need then I can post the deck on its own with the service manual.

Obviously if I need to bring the whole thing to someone to repair then this will have to be done when lockdown restrictions are over but if anyone can take a look then please let me know as this is the only thing that's hindering me from getting it completed.
