Hi davejann

These guys can certainly help you with parts for older Nakamichi decks. They are in the UK, and have most parts for pre 1996 tape decks from the legendary makers. The synthesis chassis had dramas with pinch rollers siezing up from dried grease. I always used to strip and relube, and often replace the pinch roller/tape guide assly. Hit them up, if you have any dramas, get back to me here.

I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about it, just give me a hoy :) Thanks for using FixYa, If you consider the advice I have given you as sound, a FixYa rating is a great reward for my efforts to help you. Cheers.

regards
robotek

I have a Nakamichi Dragon Cassette Deck which recently during operation began emitting foul smelling smoke. I immediately turned it off. Could you tell me what has happened please. Thank you. Noela.


It's hard to know without putting on a bench and doing diagnostics or, maybe a tech with experience on these decks knows of common weaknesses.

You might seek help from folks at audiokarma.org.

Whatever happened it probably isn't good. Smoke is usually sign of a fairly significant electronic failure of some sort. The Dragon is arguably the holy grail of tape decks, so it would be worth fixing back to good health.

Aiwa AD-1250 When a cassette tape is inserted the spools do not turn; there is a whirring noise when ''forward'' button is pressed. Is it possible for me to repair this fault by opening up the machine ?


You need to replace the belts from the motor. From memory I think there are two. You will probably find that all the rubber parts need to be replaced, including the pinch roller.

How to align head using the white plastic screw/gears


If it's a "Dragon" don't touch it! unless you've got alot of electronic test equipment to scope and meter the signal. You will cause damage to the unit. That particular model is the "only" good tape deck ever built and should be repaired by a pro. If it's any other model, it's basicly a Sony. The same rules do apply though, it's not a real good idea to guess with electronics. If it still plays well, just run a good "Tape Head" cleaning solution thru it. Generally tape heads don't get misaligned unless really jammed up. Most common problem is belts and gears. Best of luck

I have a akai gx f91 cassette deck just wonderd how much it worth


I have a counterpoint to the above statement. BarryMusic is correct that the AVERAGE cassette deck is worth about $20 bucks. You know, those piano keyed wow and flutter hiss monsters made from plastic Tupperware bins. However, the AKAI GX-F91 was at the pinnacle of cassette deck technology, just predating the release of CD. While never quite reaching the cult status of the Nakamichi Dragon or a few Studer Revox units, a drab one will easily fetch $200-$400 dollars as a PARTS MACHINE. A fully restored GX-F91 in the right market (Japan, Europe, the Middle East) can go NORTH of $1000. An all time high I saw was $1717 for a cherry machine. http://www.audio-extasa.eu/akai-gxf91-cassette-deck-p-648.html
