We have a 460. It generally runs well, and hasn't had any major problems.

We've had a 490 since Feb. 1996 and have had no problems. It receives moderate
use, with occasional heavy use.

Subject: RTI TapeChek Machines


One of our libraries is having trouble with their TapeChek 460 and is
wondering if the problem is wear and tear or operator error.
They have had the machine since 1994 and it gets heavy use. We have two
470's here and have experienced only one problem, but haven't had them
as long or used them as hard as the library in question. Have any of you
folk who are using a 400 model Tape Chek experienced any machine problems
that you could diagnose as the machine showing its' age or just "wearing
out"? I am not talking about cleaning tissue or burnishing blade
replacements, but more serious or repeated mechanical failures.

Thank you for any feedback.
