SOURCE: 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.

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.

It all depends on what's wrong it and if it's worth the price to fix it to YOU, doesn't it? Only a tech can look at it and tell you the cost to fix it.

SOURCE: I need akai part number ms244708 for a 4000d

If you look around you will likely find many many Akai 4000 series reel decks for sale..some for parts.. Akai 4000 series decks used basically the same mechanism and same parts... 4000d, DS, DS II, DB, Incidentally, the Akai 1700, 1710, 1722, 1731 used the same basic mechanisms as the 4000. .

You take the spools off and put the right spool on the left and the left on the right.

The link also explains, but i started on reel to reel in the late 60s. :>)

Can you help me make the reverse sensors work on my reel to reel Akai gx230d


Use a foil tape at the end of the reel. If that does not trigger it then play a tape and touch the two sensor contacts with a paper clip. If it still does not reverse then there are circuit failures in it and off to some Technician it goes. Or you can download the schematics from Hi Fi Engine and do the job yourself.

Manual for Akai X1800Sd reel to reel


Hi
I have managed to find 2 site for you for a manual for this machine. The first only offers a service manual here
AKAI 1800SD Service Manual free download schematics eeprom repair info for...
and seems to be more advanced than you need as it seems to deal with a lot of dismantling and settings.
The second offers both a Service Manual and an Instruction/Owners Manual here:-
Akai 1800SD Manual Reel to Reel 8 Track Tape Recorder HiFi Engine
Unfortunately you have to register and create an account for this one so it isn't quite as convenient, but its the only one I could find with an Instruction Manual.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Reel to reel will not play


You do not mention the brand or model number which to answer the question effectively is needed- different machines are designed in different ways. The function of the fast wind and the play mode only differs in that in play a capstan is involved that regulates the speed and the reel motors just do the take-up of taper and a little back tension for the supply reel. You may have either a sticky Pinch Roller linkage or a non- rotating capstan shaft that might point to a loose or broken capstan drive belt. There are also the condition of the Pinch Roller surface and the surface of the Capstan shaft that can be glazed or rubber hard and non-compliant. The rubber Pinch Roller can be re-rubbered, the capstan shaft can be reconditioned and the Capstan Belt can be replaced. Capstan bearings and motor bearings need oil once a year as well. I hope this helped to some extent- I have been working on decks now for better than 40 years.
