Searching for Tascam 122 cassette tape deck manual

I just repaired (OK, not completely yet) my Tascam 122 cassette tape deck and I am searching or a MANUAL.
I can only find 122MkII manuals only, but that deck is pretty different from the 122.

RiF-

Welcome to the wonderful world of the old-ass 122.

There's the full service manual here if you don't have it:

TASCAM 122 SM Service Manual free download, schematics, eeprom, repair info for electronics

That's an awesome book even if you don't have that model. I actually carry the paper one around in my car and read it sometimes when I get coffee. I've got the regular owners manual here too, and could have sworn I had a PDF of that as well, but can't find it in my disk catalog. I think the same stuff may be in that full service manual anyhow.

BTW- There's a similar Teac model ("C" something?), but it may have been missing the dual speeds or something.

That thing, and my 234, are definitely beasts. Everything got smaller and lighter after that generation (even the service manuals ).

Take Care

Hey Jidis,
thanx a lot for the service manual link. This seems like an awesome read!

If you find the regular owners manual as well, please be so kind and shoot me a note.

Cheers,
RiF

Will do.

I've been meaning to scan more of my paper ones anyhow, but the last one I did was a pain.

I feel ya. Scanning loads of paper can be a major PITA.

I would be happy to just have a description about the output knob (which does nothing on my unit) and the bias controls (where I cannot get a sound better than with the preset bias switch ON). Everything else is more or less self-explanatory.

And I don't know what that TEST setting on the input level does. It does not seem to produce a test tone for calibration (I'd need two freqs anyways).
