Have an akai GX-286d goes great in fast fwd until the last 2 inches or so tha slows down is this normal?

Most Reel-to-reel tape decks will slow down as they approach the end of a tape, since the momentum that had built up will have a hard time stopping at the end without stretching the tape (which will distort the sound upon playback)

Lights on bottom row fast farward,stop,fast reverse not working on akai gx-77 reel to reel

Do these controls still function? If they do it looks to me that it might be bad connections, that might need soldering. They don't look like they are bulbs from a picture I can of it on flicker, more like LED's.

Akai gx-625 reel to reel tape deck has no sound

This could be a head fault? Another possibilty is the preamp stage. You will need to look for something that would take out both channels. Such as an IC.
