    Yes, plug it in, turn it on, press UNLOAD and wait. Then wait some
more! They take a long time to rewind. You can remove the tape when the
BUSY light goes out. Then press the big button in the middle. Probably
about ten minutes. When you take out the tape, check the drive wheel on it
and see if there is any goo on it. If there is then the drive wheel in the
9145 is shot and you might as well pass on it unless you feel like
experimenting. Most 9144s are ok but about 30% aren't.
