    Hi guys, is there anybody with experience with this Nak? Mine is working fine except the record function.The red light does not appear and the record function is not available at all. I cleaned up the contacts of the switch for the recordable cassette with fine (2000) sandpaper then blow with air, then DX5, then again air. No result!
    The red recording indicator. I have 102mV on the bottom contact of the recording switch when a recordable cassette is in the cassette bay and nothing when the door is open, so the switch looks like ok.
    Is this a bad bulb which preventing the record function??
    Thanks for any answer, help or advice!!

    Ok, I fixed it! Somebody intentionally removed pin 5 from harness c4 and disconnected the record function. Now the Nak deck is working perfectly!!
    I'm wondering why it had been done?? The deck makes wonderful records - clear and crispy!! Hm-m, different people - different desires...
