only one channel works on play and record
Hi, I’m a moderator for this topic and I wonder whether you’re still waiting for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will do my best to find an Expert to assist you right away. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you. Thank you!
Hi Michelle. No one has responded to my question. I did reverse the cables and the same channel did not have sound. I was going to open the deck and see if there was two fuses, one for each channel. However the screws were very tight. Also looked at the 3 heads and they looked to be in alinement. Ok all for now Michelle.
Thank you and all the best for you
and yours in this new year.

On the $12, yes it is.On the "...switched cables-was down on same channel...", do you mean RCA to RCA cables from the Nakamichi to the amp/receiver? If yes, switched as in replaced cable pair or switched as in swap plugs on one end only?
Yes. RCA cable that runs from amp to cass deck. Also used headphones direct into cass deck. Same channel down.
I understand.Offhand and based on the described symptoms, it would almost always be an internal hardware issue. Unfortunately, no quick/easy fix and neither is there a workaround. The unit would have to be opened up for voltage measurements, confirm fault and effect repairs. Possible suspects would be:
