If the motor is running but the belts are not, then they are probably shot. You can buy belts by size or buy a belt kit at MCM Electronics.

If the motor is not running it could be 2 things: 1. A bad motor or voltage to the motor.... 2. A bind. I've seen the grease on the capstan bushing get old enough to turn into a very hard tar. So check the motor and capstan for freedom of movement.

Hope that helps you get it working...

In general, outs to ins.

If nothing else, get the manuals for the preamp and the EQ. You'll probably have to pay for them.

Google it.

Akai PR-A04 preamplifier << This is the control center and where everything comes together.

Akai AP-D210 turntable (ONLY to jacks that say "PHONO"
Akai EA-G40 Stereo Graphic Equalizer (in the Tape 1 Out/In set)
Akai CS-F14 Stereo cassette deck (in the Tape Out/In set of the EQUALIZER) *
Akai AT-K110 Fm Am Tuner (to the Tuner inputs)
Akai DT-100 Audio Tuner (to the Aux inputs)
Akai PA-W04 Amplfier (to the amp outputs)

* This will allow you to Equalize the Tape on the Record or the Playback side.

Read some audio magazines or websites. Get to understand Tape Monitor Loops.

Don't use excessive EQ.

3 cd players will not play, tape decks skip to other tracks


I think it is time to retire the unit, the laser pickup assembly is defective and must be replaced, and the auto tracking head is faulty and must be replaced, considering cost for parts and labor the price will easily cost more than a new compact stereo.

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine


Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

Motor speed needs to be regulated by PWM. Reducing the current (with a resistor) actually lowers the torque - which, with a given load, does result in reduced speed - however, different length tapes (60min vs 90min), as well as different quality, and even current position in the tape, will change the load and hence the speed. You need to regulate the speed via PWM. It's sometimes done on a small board built into the motor, in which case you'd have a round hole into which you could insert an INSULATED screwdriver (tiny flathead wrapped most of the way in electrical tape works). It may be done on the main board, in which case you could find a pot conveniently labeled "motor speed", or perhaps "pulse width" or "pwm" or something to that effect. Find it, mark its current position just in case, and turn it to see if it gets the effect you're after. And there are some tape decks in the world with no speed adjust - they are designed with a specific speed motor and the sizes of the wheels and gears are calculated for that speed. Also there may be a mechanical fault/malfunction causing the speed problem. An initial check and thorough cleaning of the capstan and pinch roller should be done. If there is a buildup of tape oxide or a piece of a broken tape wrapped around the capstan, the tape travel will be too fast (do to the effective increase in capstan shaft diameter). If the pinch roller isn't fully engaging, the tape can be getting pulled onto the takeup spool at a speed faster than the capstan control. A different source of trouble might be a slip clutch (possibly an idler/clutch assembly)which is binding, or otherwise not functioning the way it should. Another type of motor doesn't have it's speed controlled by an internal or external voltage.. instead, the motor has an internal centrifugal speed controller. This type of motor can be found on older tape decks, and might not have been utilized more recently. Good luck
