Tape door won't open and decks won't play

I can't get the tape player to play. At first the right door wouldent open but the left side would but not play, now the right door misteriously will open and the left won't. When the power button is turned on, a mechanical clicking noise is produced about three to four clicks and then stops. Any Ideas??
Thanks, Vern

How can I open AIWA NSX-A508's tape door?


When the deck is clicking when you first power it up, reach inside and turn the capstans by hand and this should disengage the tape head assembly. The problem is the drive belts are slipping and need to be replaced. The door will not open because the head is engaged.

It is a mechanical fault. The mechanism should have to be repaired. Contact any experienced technician.

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine


Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

How do I thread the tape on an Akai GX210D reel to reel tape deck?


When facing the deck, the feed reel goes on the left and the take-up reel goes on the right. Make sure to secure each reel by engaging the reel locks on each of the spindles. Place the feed reel with the free end of the tape on the left and hanging downwards (like the letter "P"). Pass the tape to the right of the tension spindle (which is above and to the left of the play/record heads unit. Pull the tape down and pass it underneath the heads from left to right. Then on the right hand side of the heads unit pass the tape between the guide wheel and the first guide spindle to its left and just above. Then pass the tape over the top of the second guide spindle. Finally, loop the tape under the right hand tension spindle and pull it up and feed onto the take-up reel from the right in an anticlockwise direction (like the letter "g"). Once you have it through the slot in the centre of the reel, hold the tape end there with your finger and wind the reel around a few times to hold the tape in place and ... Voila!

{11-30-13)
TO FIX THE CASSETTE DECK BELT PROBLEMS:

- Disassemble the player.

(you will need only one, long, phillips head screwdriver $5.00)

[It is a tedious job. (first,study how it is put together) There are 6 screws on the back - three down deep holes, three at the bottom, and two dark colored ones on the side. Once the front covering is off, then you start the process to get at the Cassette deck. You will have to unscrew a ground wire; pull the "tape" connections and one wire bundle snap fitting; and then unscrew the two screws on the back, near where the wires for the speaker connections are placed... then remove the Cassette Deck.]

{I sat in my recliner with the whole thing in my lap as i worked with a foot stool near by to put things as they came apart... and i used a metal salad bowl to through the screws into as i went along.}

- Study the drive mechanism.

- See where the drive pulleys are.

- Use small elastic bands to replace the broken belts.
(small = 1/2 inch diameter ... the size of your little finger, but will stretch out to two inches or so.)

https://www.google.com/search?q=small+elastic+bands&espv=210&es_sm=122&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=6rGaUrTlCszloASJw4KQBw&ved=0CGYQsAQ

I happened to have these on hand:

12_1_2013_4_19_19_am.jpg

- I did this on my JVC PC-XC70BK and it worked.

- Both the player-side and record-side decks had broken belts.

[The fast forward and rewind wouldn't work on either side.]

(Per each deck: one drives play, one belt drives both Rewind & Forward)

- Now both decks work.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TO FIX THE CD PLAYER ISSUE:

- My guess is the laser pick up is dirty (because they all face upward and oily film builds up on them).

- First try a disk cleaner with a brush on the underside of it.

- If that doesn't work, then (after taking off the front plastic cover plate {see above}), you can see where the upward pointing laser lens is. If you can, use Rubbing Alcohol on the end of a Q-Tip to probe into the area and thoroughly clean its surface. Then wipe it clean with a dry Q-Tip.

- If you can't get at the laser lens, then Disassemble the Unite.
[There is another ground wire that must be unscrewed from the deck assembly. And there is the issue of the tape connections leading to the top part of the unit ... they will flop around and fall out of their place once you have pulled them from the connectors ... with a bit of observation you can get them back correctly.]

- Unscrew two screws at the back ... then pull out the tray assembly.
.... then go as far in the disassembly as you need to so you can swab the laser lens with the Rubbing Alcohol.

- Re-assemble. I had one screw left over.

... ROTFL but i know where it goes and i don't care to get it there... so to hell with it, right?

Everything works fine now. Not bad for a 17 year old piece of equipment that has a Ten CD storage tray... that you can't get anymore... right?

Clicking sound in tape deck


All Aiwas  are prone to this problem.  The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost.  I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your  unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed.    It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own.  Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership.  All the best: jamz

Tape deck not working


Possibly a slipping rubber belt in the tape unit drive is not gripping enough to complete an action and so is just stopping everything from happening until it completes that action. You might try GENTLY helping the belt complete its action.
