Question about Akai Audio Players & Recorders
Most reel to reel tape recorders have "line out" in the form of RCA phono jacks. These are designed to be connected to an external amplifier. Some unit, however also have an internal amplifier and will output to speaker jacks that should be clearly marked. If your unit has such jacks and you cannot control the sound, your amplifier must be bad. Keep in mind, on most recorders, there are no internal speakers or output amplifier and the volume controls on the front are for recording only.

When facing the deck, the feed reel goes on the left and the take-up reel goes on the right. Make sure to secure each reel by engaging the reel locks on each of the spindles. Place the feed reel with the free end of the tape on the left and hanging downwards (like the letter "P"). Pass the tape to the right of the tension spindle (which is above and to the left of the play/record heads unit. Pull the tape down and pass it underneath the heads from left to right. Then on the right hand side of the heads unit pass the tape between the guide wheel and the first guide spindle to its left and just above. Then pass the tape over the top of the second guide spindle. Finally, loop the tape under the right hand tension spindle and pull it up and feed onto the take-up reel from the right in an anticlockwise direction (like the letter "g"). Once you have it through the slot in the centre of the reel, hold the tape end there with your finger and wind the reel around a few times to hold the tape in place and ... Voila!

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.
