    Hello, anyone with knowledge of the cause for PIONEER RT-1020L reel to reel not recording in left channel? During recording, both vu meters are working but during playback only the right channel is playing, could this be capacitiors or resistors? If so, can anyone provide a detail schematic identifying the ones to change. Thanks

    Can you confirm that it is "not recording" vs. "recording but not playing back"? That is, have you checked your recorded tape on another unit to see if the tape is really blank on that track?
