Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I was wondering if you could shed some light on my problem?
I have got a Nakamichi "Cassette Deck 1" deck which was working fine until it stopped playing. It still rewinds and fast forwards the tape but when I press play button I hear a click but nothing happens.
Any ideas what could be wrong with it? Any possible causes?
Thanks & regards
I have a CR5A 3-head cassette deck. It was working great.
One day I depressed the Power-on button, the display momentarily lit up, then extinguished. I tried depressing power on button again, NO response. I opened the chassis and did NOT see any blown fuses.
Also are there any reliable repair facilities in California for Nakamichi cassette decks?
Thank You for Your time,

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

It could be the take up spindle does not have enough torque causing the tape to bunch up after the capstan. If you open up the unit you will notice ether belts or rollers for the tape drive. If it has belts you can replace the belt after cleaning the pulleys. If it has rollers you may be able to clean them with a rubber cleaner (not alcohol which will dry the rubber and cause glazing). Make sure the capstan and the pinch roller is clean using a rubber revitalizing cleaner on the pinch roller. "Goof off" from a hardware store is great for the capstan if it has a lot of metal oxide on it.
