Hello Wingers,



I am looking foradvice on the PANASONIC radio/cassetteof myGL1200.

The radio part works fine over all speakers. The cassette palyer though is only audible over one 9in this case the right) channel. The left channel only produces sounds like a small tug boat (like, chg,chg, chg, chg, etc.). This sound does not change speed, only becomes louder when the volume knob is engaged accordingly.

So, the mechanical part works...



What have I done so far: cleaned the audio head with denat alcohol. No change.



In for good advice,



Greetz!

Welcome to the forum IWAR and congrats on your first post. You will find that there is a ton of information to be found on this forum and the people on here are fabulous!

The radio on my GL1200 does the same thing, only mine plays through the left speaker when using the tape deck. If I plug headsets into the intercom system, then both speakers in the helmet plays fine. I have not found why this is the way it is.

Hopefully someone will be along shortly to give us an answer.

The output for the headset from the radio is seperate than that for the speakers. So it is possible that the amplifier (MAY) be the cause, I stress MAY, and the headset output for the headset does not pass through the amplifer.
After 25 years maybe it's time for Sierra to have a look at the radio and or Amplifier. Even if it is only a thorough clean it needs.

The fact that the FM section is fine possibly would suggest possible problems with the tape preamp in the radio.
You don't mention anything about a headset, if it was the same on the headset it would narrow it to the preamp (maybe)

Same again send them in for a clean...
