I'm sure there's several good options, but the best place I know of is Audio Classics in Vestal NY. If they can't fix it, I'm sure they can send you to a place that can.

I have the same tape deck. Some idiot tried to replace the two track head with a four track head and really screwed up the machine. I called Soundsmith to ask about repairs ... I was told to consider it scrap and to use it for spares. Too bad, because when functioning properly it's a great sounding tape player. The Tanbergs are problematic though, especially the solenoid switches.
I had a change of heart and bought a one owner Akai GX747 off of eBay Sunday morning. It doesn't have as much as a flea bite on it and looks like it came out of an 80's time capsule.
I think I'm going to let the Tandberg go. I've got way too much gear/boxes that have taken over the closets and attic.
Think I'll start a $1 no reserve auction.
Thanks for the time and input fellow A'goners. And I hope you don't think you wasted your time responding because you didn't. I have written all of those contacts down for future use.
