NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?

Hi Experts!

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

Nadeem

    Thanks "robotek"!



    I will try and replace the capstan belt if it is not too difficult for a novice like me and post the results.

    Thanks "robotek"!

    I took your advice and replaced the capstan belt and it wasn't too difficult for a novice like me. My Nakamichi is now fixed and working well.



    This is a great site. Thanks again.

    I have a BX-100 that I bought new in 1986 and I now have my first problem with it. The FF and RW work fine, but PLAY clicks and starts to move the head into position and stops, leaving it in PAUSE mode. Is this repairable by someone like me with slightly above average mechanical skills?

    Tape door stuck, does not allow removal of tape, and does not play tape. It had no problem before this began. Everything worked fine.

Sirs,
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.
Any ideas??
Also are there any reliable repair facilities in California for Nakamichi cassette decks?
Thank You for Your time,
John

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

Nakamichi DR 10 does not eject. I loaded a cassette, pressed 'Play' the cassette played 10 seconds and stopped. The display showed 'ERR'. I removed the cover, nothing immediately obvious. The cassette...


The DR1o might have a Sankyo transport and they have sense fingers that become tarnished. This needs to be serviced to make the deck work. It is possible that the deck is still in play mode which blocks the eject from taking place. Unplug the unit and open it up and rotate the worm gear with a finger and the door will eventually open up but do not force things as understand the size of motor in the unit that normally turns the worm gear.

My Nakamishi Cassette Deck 2 is eating tape. It switches off when it does, but how can I fix this? From the look of it this cassette deck has the same cassette drive as the DR-8. Is that correct?


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.

My owner's manual is long lost, what do you need to know?

I don't know what problem you have, but mine, which Iv'e had since circa 1988, suddenly developed a failrly loud whistle from the speakers. I opened it for a looksee, and by chance spotted a dry joint on teh PCB. It had never been soldered properly. After soldiring that joint, the whistle is gone.....

Nakamichi BX-2 Cassette Deck Takeup Reel


I had sorta the same problem and I just fixed it. Mine was making clicking noises and jerking the tape causing speed variations and pitch changes, Uggghh. The FF, Rew, and take up functions are not belt driven like most decks. There is a little idler wheel between the motor and the take up axle. Take the whole transport assembly loose from the front of the deck...slide it back 3 inches . Take off the ground wire screw, and 3 screws holding the transport mechanism in place :...1 screw on top, 2 on bottom. Take the black front faceplate off of the drive...2 little screws. This exposes everything.The little idler wheel has a press on tiny,tiny piece of clear plastic holding it onto its little axle. Be hella careful. Use a tiny eyeglass screwdriver to pry it up and off. Dont lose it. Pull the idler wheel off. The rubber has hardened and slips. Pry the rubber rim off of the white plastic pulley using the tiny screwdriver. Put on an O ring that just fits. Scruff up the perimeter of the O ring with 220 sandpaper, Easy does it. Idler wheel goes back in, press on the little plastic retainer, put the black metal plate back on( 2 screws at top), slide the transport mechanism back into the front panel, secure with 3 screws, ground strap, replace cover. Clean heads, demagnetise, badda bing, badda boom.
