A readable electrical schematic set for the Otari 5050B-lll2
« on: February 21, 2017, 08:24:41 AM »
I've found good schematics for every other machine that Otari makes eccept for the
one I own. I have a scanned copy that is 149 pages with schematics but as you
can imagine the schematic is not very clear(because it is scanned) and almost impossible to decipher values.
I just need electrical schematics, everything else in the manual is readable.
Thsi is the only copy I found with elec drawings,just not readable, If someone has them and would
be kind enough to send them to me I would appreciate it.

AnalogRules.com have a reasonable copy for 8 track.
can be cleaned up in Gimp.
But change resolution to 200 to 300 dpi when importing pages.
Then you can adjust the contrast of the image to allow you to read.
Otari tape machine manuals were always always horrible to read from the start.
Use to have to make photo copies and write notes on them all the time.
