Nakamichi 600 II


Hello to all,

Have just joined the forum & immediately need help!!! Have inherited a Nak 600II recently & need help in getting it serviced in Mumbai/Navi Mumbai. Can someone please help me get this beautiful cassette player back to life???

I took it to a known AV electronics service centre where i was informed that the unit is fine save for the 'Idler' not working, hence need to get it replaced.

Await some quick replies from the knowledgeable folks here....

Thanks
Dave

The Nak 600-II you have is a late 1975 - 1978 version of the 600 with improved electronic circuitry from the earlier 600. It an extremely versatile & trouble-free machine from the Nakamichi stable.





Mentioned below are some of the places where you may get hold of a FULL BELT KIT that would also include the Idler Tire (made of neoprene rubber) for the necessary service of your 600-II.




NAKAMICHI 250,350,500,550, 600, 600II Premium Belt Kit - eBay (item 280414447499 end time Mar-23-10 07:32:15 PDT)


Electronics Service labs Send an email to Jeff Galin with your requirements


Forum member < aks07 > is also an owner of the 600. Get in touch with him for neccessary info regarding repairs of the 600. Link to that page/Thread : http://www.hifivision.com/cassette-t...te-deck-3.html

regards
Thanks for the info Audio Engr..... have mailed to fellow member aks07, lets hope he can help me or for that matter other members out here....

The 600II holds a lot of sentimental value, hence i hope to get it working ASAP!!!

As a side note, visited the Nakamichi site & was very very disappointed with the direction in which the great Nakamichi Corp is headed, I guess they will never be the same again.... too bad.

Re: Nakamichi 600 II

Recd the foll info from fellow member 'aks07' :
"There used to be a great services guy called Naren in Panvel area who specialized in Naks. He has loads of spares too. I have lost his number, but you can put up a request in the forum. Someone will surely know about him."

I request all of the fellow members here to please help & send the contact nos. of this gentleman (Naren) so that I can get my 600II running!!!

Re: Nakamichi 600 II

denom ji

I will scan the service manual and email to you. Please give me a couple of days.

Meanwhile, can you tell us what is the exact problem that prevents normal operation ? Maybe we can remote service your machine.

Be aware that new age technicians wouldn't have a clue on a Nak so make an effort to find an experienced guy who has actually worked on them.

I agree with you on the idler tyre. It can deteriorate if the machine was not used for a long time.

NAK 600 is so simple that it’s actually breathtaking! Simple but highly engineered.

Re: Nakamichi 600 II

I have a Nak CR2 and its a simple 2 head cassette deck........my discrete head nak decks give more trouble than the simple naks that i have........8-))
But I like the tape winding speed of the heavy mechanism naks..........they are so fast like the DAT tapes........

Re: Nakamichi 600 II

Finally managed to zero in on a chap who knows NAKs, guy called Sanjay Raut in Shivaji Park, Name of his Shop ( AVC Incorporated). He will give me the status of whats ailing my 600II in a couple of days, lets hope he fixes it soon....

Re: Nakamichi 600 II

hi denom,

i understand that the nak you have holds sentimental value for you - and hope that the man can get it up to speed for you-

that said- i have learned from the past not to repair old things with moving mechanical parts - especially when metal and rubber parts are conjoined to form a mechanical device-

just like old washing machines - it is best not to agonise about how to get them working again - look for new and better

*THROWS ON A FLAMEPROOF SUIT*
