Question about Audio Players & Recorders

I have a vintage AKAI X-1800 SD Crossfield Reel to Reel Player/8 track player and I'm trying to find a place that sells replacement parts. I am looking for the black rubber band that is used on the drive part that enables the reels to turn & feed the tape through the drive area

Manual for Akai X1800Sd reel to reel


Hi
I have managed to find 2 site for you for a manual for this machine. The first only offers a service manual here
AKAI 1800SD Service Manual free download schematics eeprom repair info for...
and seems to be more advanced than you need as it seems to deal with a lot of dismantling and settings.
The second offers both a Service Manual and an Instruction/Owners Manual here:-
Akai 1800SD Manual Reel to Reel 8 Track Tape Recorder HiFi Engine
Unfortunately you have to register and create an account for this one so it isn't quite as convenient, but its the only one I could find with an Instruction Manual.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

I have an Akai X-1810D unit. When I try to transfer a reel onto a blank 8-track, the end result I get on my 8-track is a lot of flutter. The 8-tracks have new foam pads. I used to transfer a 3 3/4 speed...


take a q-tip, cap full of peroxide (clean 8 trk heads / roller).......... make sure nothing is near 8 trk to cause any kind of vibration.......... have you recorded onto these 8 trk tapes (if so try erasing it by recording blank, no sound onto it then rec your music)

I have an 8 track player that is playing the 8 tracks sped up. Also it chews some of the tape on some of them. This is two speaker stand 8 track player, One of the speakers carries the 8 track pocket. ...


Hi , it is good to hear someone in need a help for the 8 track player. I love this player, the mechanism and the sound quality due to the higher speed. Now you will need to open the set and mainly check on the pinch roller. This could be bad and to get a replacement might be difficult. so try to clean using go alcohol based solvent, clean up all the transport track area, the head and check also on the belt. make sure the tapes are not damaged as you will never get a replacement, i suggest that youmust make a copy soon. If the pinch roller bushes are worn out , it can wobble and push the tape down to chew, try to use a light emery paper to even the surface of the roller. I wish you luck and many happy hours of our old favourites. Helpful? Good day
