Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Akai GX-95 MkII Stereo Cassette Deck: Tape spills from the cassette when it is stopped while in Play or Fast Forward mode. Brake is not operating correctly. In Rewind mode there is no tape spill. Can you give guidance on adjusting the brakes? I am competent to do the work if I know the correct procedure. Alternatively , if a service manual is available for purchase that would be great.
Is it possible to obtain replacement brake-pads if they are needed?
Thank you, Eric Fahy
The spooling assembly is fixed to thespool motor axis by means of a retaining ring with six radial reedswhich extend and grip the axis when the assembly is screwed to theaxis. Apparently, this steel-to-steel mount doesn't hold anymorecausing slipping. Revox have devised a new assembly to replace thecurrent one.... http://www.vintage-electronics.cc/forsale.html

It sounds like the belt is slipping or broken which monitors the speed of the tape movement. When you play or rewind the tape, it thinks the tape has reached the end of play and shuts off. You can try a different tape to make sure the tape does not have too much tension on it. If the second tape has the same result you will need to remove the top cover of the deck to inspect the tape drive mechanism. Make sure the belts and pulleys are clean and replace any belts which have glazing or cracks. If the belt is broken you will need to replace it with a compatible belt of the same length and width.
