I checked the settings, changed the settings, tried various approaches, it did not move.This reel doe not have a leader tape. When I shut the recorder down the loading roller doesn't come down. Also, the operating buttons do not functio properly or at all. I replaced the reels again and fed the tape manually over the roller, but no results. Please help.

Most reel to reel tape recorders do not have a built-in mic. you need to plug a mic into the recorder.

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.
