I've followed the wiki page and added a tape socket to my 6128+ - it seems to work fine, but though I hear the relay clicking when I expect, if I plug the remote line into the tape deck I have, it disables playback entirely. Is this indicative of any obvious wiring mistakes? Is there something I can scope to check if I have it right?

I've attached pictures, but they may not be too clear... If I need to deconstruct it I will, but I'd like to know what I'm looking for first :)

Is the relay wired the right way round? Remote is obviously supposed to stop the tape when not being used. It only opens the relay when you type start loading and press any key. Otherwise it shouldn't be running. Is it working the other way?

Sorry I know the above is obvious but worth a mention just in case.

At the moment, it acts as if it's never opened - would that be the consequence of it being the wrong way round? I'll try to double check...

Ok, after much resoldering and testing it turns out it was just a bad joint 😛 All good now, thanks!
