Please advice where to repair AKAI GX-R66 StereoCassette Deck. The problem is with the deck's head mechanics.Rewinds tape back and forth normally, but doesn't respond to Play button.


If it deck doesnt react at all (no movement or sound) the play-pushbutton could be defect.
If the servo does react (click sound) try cleaning the belt and wheels attatched to the long, small motor that is closest to the power supply circuitboard. It has a small white wheel driving a large black wheel with segments.
If this does not do it then remove the motor-screw closest to the (left) side of the deck, turn the motor a bit upwards (increases tension on the belt) and fix motor again in the newly appeared hole.
If this still is not enough, rotate the belt 180 degrees so you get a mobius ring loop. This further increases belt tension.
If this still doesnt work, replace belt, rough up the motorwheel or start praying.
Hope I helped you. Eric.

Disaregard the labeling. Anything can go just about anywhere except PHONO. That's only for a turntable.

Use a Tape Loop for the cassette; Aux for the TV sound coming in; CD for DVD, for example.

Of course, it's all just analog stereo.

I have an akai aa-a25 reciver and right side speakers only work


I had this problem when I first got this receiver back out of years in a box, but it was fixed by pressing the reset button on the back. Hope that works for you!

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

Akai s6000 sampler unused for most its life. Just when we need it it fails on the third full day. On power up the display is blank and all led buttong thats 8 under the screen stay fully lit. Power supply...


Same problem with an Akai S5000.
Display gets darker because power supply outputs for the mainboard starts falling after start up.
Don't know if its the mainboard is causing the problem or is a problem of the power supply itself.
A S5000 service manual will be helpful.
Best regards

Akai 4000s Wind Synth


This is a common fault - faulty capacitors in the power supply section need replacement. Low and noisy voltage rails are stopping the Akai initialising properly.

Please rate the assistance given - this should enable you to fix the problem.
