BuildThe drive seems to be a Sony, electronically it is a true NEC. The drive looks somewhat similar to the Sony SL-C7 but a later version, as there are no solenoids in this one.
Stand-byWhen put into stand-by mode it will not react to any drive situation and all motors will just stop, so never do this when winding or rewinding as the tape may unspool inside the machine.
