Tascam 234 rec/pb problem

I have a tascam 234 that was overloaded on tracks 3/4 by someone that borrowed the deck for a project. Testing for output/record gives the following results - will playback on trk 4 but not record and will record on trk 3 but not playback - trks 1/2 operate normally in/out. I don't have a service manual for the deck. Any suggestions on possible component failures or solutions?

The deck was professionally refurbished right before it came into my possession - heads, belts, motor/s all of it. I use it as a multi-track idea machine so the big 16 trk doesn't get hours on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps someone knows where to get a service manual for the Tascam 234?

Thanks for your help in advance.
