speed change switch
I have a vintage Akai 1800D-SS . Pulled it out of basement. It is in spotless condition and runs fine. My question is this... it turns on and when I put a tape in play, it runs at the low speed cart in the top speed change switch. If it is just turned on... it will go and run into the high speed position, but when I turn it to play the tape, it dies, until I go to the low cart speed again. Any suggestions? Thanks so much.
