The graphics are now online on
I found out that possible the missing connectors on the opcon are seriously
missing. Wondering why they were ever dismounted. Someone knows the pinout
to make new cables?

The problems with the TK70 shows up after dismantling it - the strip to 
threaten the tape is loose around the internal reel :( Where to fix it?
The tapecase is not unloading though the tape is properly inside the case.
I was told there is a switch to force the unload from inside - but I didnt
found it.
