I fired up my Nakamichi today hoping to hear some Loverboy, but it did not want to cooperate. It seems as though every button works on it, but it will not play. If I ffwd it to the end of the tape, it does the flippy thing with the tape and forwards a bit to where the music should start, but it simply will not play. This is a much more complicated tape player than I have ever had so I am not sure if I have a setting wrong. I am hoping someone here can offer advice. Yes, I know it is not powered on, but nothing changes with the power on, lol...it still does not play.
