Hi osujah

Most probably the record play switching causing the problem. It is the long switch that is connected to the transport, and switches when you engage record. Flooding this switch with CRC 2-26 usually cures the symptoms you have. Just be careful not to get ahy near the transport:) Check it out and get back to me here is it does not sort out the problem. Cheers.

How do I connect this system together to get it to work?


The manual for the amplifier and all the other units are here. Use the search feature in the top right with just the model number 'AT-5210'. Getting the items in the right order helps. The turntable obviously goes on top. The Amplifier goes in the middle and all the other units connect to the amp.

Please advice where to repair AKAI GX-R66 StereoCassette Deck. The problem is with the deck's head mechanics.Rewinds tape back and forth normally, but doesn't respond to Play button.


If it deck doesnt react at all (no movement or sound) the play-pushbutton could be defect.
If the servo does react (click sound) try cleaning the belt and wheels attatched to the long, small motor that is closest to the power supply circuitboard. It has a small white wheel driving a large black wheel with segments.
If this does not do it then remove the motor-screw closest to the (left) side of the deck, turn the motor a bit upwards (increases tension on the belt) and fix motor again in the newly appeared hole.
If this still is not enough, rotate the belt 180 degrees so you get a mobius ring loop. This further increases belt tension.
If this still doesnt work, replace belt, rough up the motorwheel or start praying.
Hope I helped you. Eric.

I have a akai gx f91 cassette deck just wonderd how much it worth


I have a counterpoint to the above statement. BarryMusic is correct that the AVERAGE cassette deck is worth about $20 bucks. You know, those piano keyed wow and flutter hiss monsters made from plastic Tupperware bins. However, the AKAI GX-F91 was at the pinnacle of cassette deck technology, just predating the release of CD. While never quite reaching the cult status of the Nakamichi Dragon or a few Studer Revox units, a drab one will easily fetch $200-$400 dollars as a PARTS MACHINE. A fully restored GX-F91 in the right market (Japan, Europe, the Middle East) can go NORTH of $1000. An all time high I saw was $1717 for a cherry machine. http://www.audio-extasa.eu/akai-gxf91-cassette-deck-p-648.html

AKAI CASSETTE DECK IDLER?


I wonder if it has a counter and if so, is the belt that drives the counter too loose? Is the counter working?
