Nakamichi BX-125 Cassette Deck

Hello,

The solution is not the belts but a motor that brings the tape mechanism up into the slot inside the tape.

It loses lubrication with time and I still am looking to fix it somehow.

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.

Nakamichi BX 300 tape deck runs slow in play,belts and idler have been replaced


There is an adjustment in the motor that sets the speed however you need to have a frequency counter and speed alignment tape to adjust the speed correctly. There was also suppose to be oiling of the mechansm at the time the belts were put on.

Cassette door will not open in my Pioneer CT-A9


Hi Russell,
Sound to me like another cam operated mechanism. I just had a Nakamichi brought to me the other day with the same symptoms.
If you turn the unit on and listen closely, you might hear a motor running inside, this motor is running because it is trying to initialize the deck mechanism. The reason it can not is that a cam belt that goes from the motor to the pulley that operates the cam is loose, broken or turned to goo. These belts just do not pop in and often require the deck be taken apart a ways to get to the belt. There is also lubrication and cleaning of old grease out of cam gears and slide plates. This is where a Technician is needed. I am in the Chicago area in case you need my help- If you are in New Jersey I can give you the name of another business. Please advise of your location and we can go from there.

RS-X501 DOUBLE CASSETTE DECK PROBLEM WITH TAPE DRIVE ON BOTH DECKS


Usually the fault is the failure of the BELT on the mechanism. You will need to remove the covers to have a look on the motor drive behind the mechanism of the tape drive. Thebelt can be changed if you are technically capable to remove and reset the mechanism.

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.

Replacing bands


Since the belts control the timing of the mechanism, I would not recommend this as a home repair. While relatively simple compared to some, this still is a delicate repair that can easily go wrong. Please bring this unit to an audio repair shop. Expect a parts cost in the $15-$20 range. There are 3 belts inside.

Unit probably needs belts. Over time, belts may become slack or decompose into tar-like compound. In this case, the deck will need to be cleaned and belts replaced. Take to pro/tech

NAKAMICHI CASSETTE DECK 1 NOT PLAYING?


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
