In case I insert a tape and start playing the mashine produces atape jam.


clean the capstan roller ,head as they are filled with dust and dirt accumulated on them and cause the tape to malfunction and jam ...you can simply open/eject the cover from where you insert /load the cassette then use a cotton bud dipped in methyl spirit/alcohol and carefully clean the roller and head after you are done use the other side of the cotton bud to remove excess of cleaning agent from them ..allow them to dry for five minutes keeping the cover open and then insert your tape again and enjoy the music without any break/jam.. just don't forget to clean your head,capstan roller once a month if you listen to tape regularly..... to maintain the long life of the player ..

How do I connect my Ipod to my SR601 Onkyo receiver? I am already using the CD and tape analogue inputs.


Since you are already using cd and tape inputs you can use the audio part of any video input (I think that this amplifier doesn't mute the signal in case of no video input). Since your i-pod is a portable device it's a good idea to use the front panel (video 4 input) audio connectors.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Akai recording problem


You might have a bad cable to the recorder (try swapping the right and left connections and see if the problem moves to the other channel), dirty tape heads (use a cotton swab and head cleaner or isopropyl alcohol to clean them), or a circuit problem inside the recorder. Hope this gets you started!

I need to replace a part for my reel-to-reel tape recorder: The machine is Akai Model No. 1722 II, and a friend of mine, a sound man, describes the part that needs replacing like this: A Dual Condenser...


1 Microfarad is easy, you need to specify a voltage rating though. These are easily available from any elextronics parts supplier. There are many on the web. Post the voltage and I'll list a few.
