commercial head/pinch roller cleaner or isopropyl alcohol.
When cleaning the heads, pinch rollers, etc., unplug the unit
which contains high voltages.
After long use, the deck's heads and capstans may become mag-
netised, causing poor sound. Demagnetise these parts once
every 30 hours of playing/recording time by using a commercial
tape head demagnetiser. Read the demagnetiser's instructions
carefully before use.
