I am looking for some advice on what I think maybe bias adjustment for this deck. Deck plays and records however I cannot set record calibration to some type 1 and type 2 tapes. No problem calibrating TDK SA90, MA90 and Sony HF-ES with great results. Recently went to record with Denon HD6 and TDK AD90 but did not have enough range to calibrate these tapes. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Have you cleaned and demagnetised the heads?

Thanks Ray. I jumped back into the manual and it notes a Nakamichi unit and goes though the process. I assume the electric toothbrush looking units are a better option than the old head cleaning tape type. Lucky me. Another obscure old school artefact to try and dig out. I am going to throw out a lifeline in the WTB thread.

Did you manage to fix your problems.  I have a 670ZX that did not record at all and it was fixed by changing out the orange caps ... It was sick with OCD.

Yes. It was bias adjustment. Then the motor died. All fixed now with replacement motor thanks to Trevor Wilson.
