Unable to record with Akai GX-77

I have an Akai GX-77 that plays lights up and does everything properly. The only problem is that it won't record. Could you tell me how to solve this problem?

    Thank you for the suggestion. But I dont believe that we are talking about the same product. The Akai that I own is a reel-to-reel player and does not use a cassette and therefore does not have a safety tab. Thank you, however. (I should have been more specific with my question)

    Thanks for the help! I'll definitely try those  solutions.

Make sure the cassett you are using has safety tab intact. Clean the heads and tape drive roller. If unit has a record level control, make sure it is set correctly

    Sorry for the mix-up. Assuming the tape drive works properly -- it goes into FF/ REW and Play at normal speed, make sure all heads and pinch rollers are cleaned with Q-tip and alchohol or better, ketone. Be very careful with ketone -- very flammable. After cleaning, make sure deck record switch is on, if it has one.

    Make sure to set record volume to proper levels.

Lights on bottom row fast farward,stop,fast reverse not working on akai gx-77 reel to reel


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.
