If it's a "Dragon" don't touch it! unless you've got alot of electronic test equipment to scope and meter the signal. You will cause damage to the unit. That particular model is the "only" good tape deck ever built and should be repaired by a pro. If it's any other model, it's basicly a Sony. The same rules do apply though, it's not a real good idea to guess with electronics. If it still plays well, just run a good "Tape Head" cleaning solution thru it. Generally tape heads don't get misaligned unless really jammed up. Most common problem is belts and gears. Best of luck

Nakamichi480dualcassettedeck won't open. May have put cassette in wrong way. Is there a fix?


Michael, What do you mean with may have put it in wrong? Up side down? because every cassette has 2 sides. It is almost impossible to put a cassette in, up side down. Or you must have used enormous force and then opening would not have much sense, because you must have damaged a lot.

Nakamichi DR 10 does not eject. I loaded a cassette, pressed 'Play' the cassette played 10 seconds and stopped. The display showed 'ERR'. I removed the cover, nothing immediately obvious. The cassette...


The DR1o might have a Sankyo transport and they have sense fingers that become tarnished. This needs to be serviced to make the deck work. It is possible that the deck is still in play mode which blocks the eject from taking place. Unplug the unit and open it up and rotate the worm gear with a finger and the door will eventually open up but do not force things as understand the size of motor in the unit that normally turns the worm gear.

Tape is slow and whirring noise


Alex somebody technical will have to look at what is wrong with your deck. What is the shape of this piece of plastic I tried to service a Nakamichi the other day and the reason for the deck to burn one of the motors from a sticker that was used for the identification and it jammed the mechanism up. It sound as if there is a part from the Pause control if this is one of the units in those made in China after about 1990

Nakamichi BX-2 Cassette Deck Takeup Reel


I had sorta the same problem and I just fixed it. Mine was making clicking noises and jerking the tape causing speed variations and pitch changes, Uggghh. The FF, Rew, and take up functions are not belt driven like most decks. There is a little idler wheel between the motor and the take up axle. Take the whole transport assembly loose from the front of the deck...slide it back 3 inches . Take off the ground wire screw, and 3 screws holding the transport mechanism in place :...1 screw on top, 2 on bottom. Take the black front faceplate off of the drive...2 little screws. This exposes everything.The little idler wheel has a press on tiny,tiny piece of clear plastic holding it onto its little axle. Be hella careful. Use a tiny eyeglass screwdriver to pry it up and off. Dont lose it. Pull the idler wheel off. The rubber has hardened and slips. Pry the rubber rim off of the white plastic pulley using the tiny screwdriver. Put on an O ring that just fits. Scruff up the perimeter of the O ring with 220 sandpaper, Easy does it. Idler wheel goes back in, press on the little plastic retainer, put the black metal plate back on( 2 screws at top), slide the transport mechanism back into the front panel, secure with 3 screws, ground strap, replace cover. Clean heads, demagnetise, badda bing, badda boom.

NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?


it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions
