Try demagnetizing the heads with a head demag device. This is not the same as a bulk tape eraser or a tape demag device.

SOURCE: Teac X1000R Reel to reel

Hi there. It will need a new pinch roller, and has a bias oscillator. problem. From memory, they use a module for the oscillator, and the pinch rollers are easy to get. Sorting out the bias may be the problematic part, and you will need to recalibrate the bias traps and controls if you want max performance from the unit once repaired. I would go about checking things like intermittent tape bias switch, and try wriggling the record play switch( internally) and see if you can get erase and rec back. Noisy intermittent switches can caused the symptoms you have.

If you are able to, I would be seeking a refund. If not, then repairs are feasible. Let me know where you are and I can help you find a repair guy. Cheers

Trace the wires from the head to the amp section. Put your finger on where they join (during playback) and see if you can get a buzz. If you can't on either channel, look for something that might be common to both channels. Either a switch, or a pre-amp IC, as being the cause of the fault.

AKAI X-1810D LOW HUM WHEN RECORDING REELS


I am not an expert in the repair of Akai units- most of the time I refuse them, however just to put you on the right path, the hum is coming from a power supply issue in the record audio section or may be in the bias section. You may need to put new Electrolytic caps in the power supply to resolve this. You can also scope the supplies on this deck to find the cause. I commonly work on Teac, Pioneer, Otari, Studer, Sony and better made decks. Some brands are real trouble and are more costly to repair due to poor construction.
I have been doing repairs for 40 years so far.
