I have an Akai GX 270 that begins to slow down in play mode after take up reel is approx 50% full.
this happens also when in FF and Rewind any ideas and how to fix would be really appreciated.
The main motor AC capacitors may be bad; this is a dual section capacitor rated at 3.5 and 1.5uf at 150 volts. You will probably have to use two separate capacitors to replace this; any AC voltage at 150 volts or higher is OK but the rating has to be 1.5 and 3.5uf.
There are two .47uf capacitors on the supply and take-up motors; these may be bad but probably not your problem.
You should check that the motors turn freely when the brakes are released.
Many thanks for quick reply.
Will check and keep you informed.
I appreciate the help.
