Check power drive circuit and ohm out traces on control board. The glue they used has been known to conduct and corrode through the foil traces that go to the control circuits.

Make sure the cassett you are using has safety tab intact. Clean the heads and tape drive roller. If unit has a record level control, make sure it is set correctly

My akia gx 625 does not turn at required speed. What needs to be completed to resolve issue


The last time I had one of those and I do not work on them too often on purpose is the capstan shaft was glazed and the Pinch roller was never cleaned. There are ways to deal with the problems but most people are too lazy so they take it to a Technician. The Pinch roller if hard needs to go to Terry for rebuild and the capstan shaft can be reconditioned. The motor needs oiling. Akai used some bad transistors in their units that make noise and have other problems and the glue they used on the PCB sometimes eats the foils away.

I have Akai gx 230. Its doinf Rew and FF but Play not working, though engages. Tape does not move. Can it be tape threading problem?


Could be either. If you can do some testing, check for power to the capstan motor in play configuration. If there is power at the motor terminals, the motor itself may have failed.
