Akai 646 problem
Hello .. I am new to this nice place. I actually acquired an AKAI GX 646 . It looks in a very good shape except that it needed a lot of cleaning. the problem is that it fast forwards and rewinds but it doesn't play, although the play lights in both directions light up and I can hear a strong click but it doesn't spin. I had a look at the capstan motor and it doesn't spin although it runs freely when spun by hand. The pinch roller engages verywell. I am frustrated because no repair shop in my country wanted to have a look at it. what could be the reason? can anybody give me ahint. I am suspecting the motor is not recieving orders to spin or this is a bad motor. I also had a look at the service manual but it doesn't contain a troubleshooting table.
please , help me out
