Otari BTR-5 , How to thread the tape near the pinch roller
« on: February 18, 2016, 01:49:33 PM »
Hi,

I have newly purchased a used Otari BTR-5 tried to find a manual for it without any success,   have a question regarding how to thread the tape near the pinch roller.

Attached 2 pictures, need help on which picture shows the correct way to thread the tape around the pinch roller.


Also, some information where I can buy a operational manual for it.

Thanks!

George

Here's an Otari ad showing the tape threaded under the floating post, like your first picture.
