Teac 3340 operating manual/service manual?

Post by Red Favorite » Wed May 26, 2004 10:19 am

I was wondering if anyone out there had an operating manual or service manual (or both) for a Teac 3340S that they wouldn't mind sharing? Maybe in electronic format, like a .pdf or something? I'd like to know how to service it & so on....also, I've had it for years and never knew what the "EQ" and "Bias" switches were for. I mean, I know what EQ and Bias are, but don't know what i should have them set on when recording; they only say "1" and "2", not "high" or "normal", etc. Sorry if this sounds kind of dimwitted, but hey, that's what the board is here for, right?

Feel free to contact me offlist re: the manuals...

Thanks!

Jeremy

I may have the operating manual at home. It's 3340 but I'm not
sure of the variant. Then I'll see about making a copy.

It's pretty finicky & the last tech to look at it wasn't too
optimistic about it's life span. Service parts are about non-existant.
So I use mine sparingly.

sure, no problem -- he really helped me get my lowly but beloved 4010SL up and running - good maintenance guides, manuals, belts, etc.
