    Maybe I can help? I'd have to refresh my own memory.

    I did replace the entire mechablock in mine - It wasn't too hard.


    If you remove the plastic sides, the the top/back metal panelling, then the red armrest and it's metal panel (last), you can get a better idea of where to start.
    That should reveal the screws for the transport/meters which you can then remove.

    Any deeper than that I can't remember off the top of my head but if you can't work it out, post some pics please.

    Sorry - My memory let me down and I updated the post.
    I never had the proper service manual.

    I you have issues with the actual tape unit and its circuitry, try the GX52 service manual.
    The block is the same and circuitry is similar.

    A few other akai tape players used that same block - BLM300.

    Sorry, no. I don't know anything about that. I'd expect it to be in the GX52 manual though, which I was able to find online.

    Top tip....eject the tape and remove the plastic cover before disassembly.
    You have to remove the plastic cover while the tape deck is open.

    Yeah, that's right. I think there were a few ribbons for the meter/transport section, below the transport under that panel with the head headphone jacks?


    You can carefully unplug any ribbons like that. If I recall, that whole transport circuit board has wires disappearing in to the main body of the unit.
    There should be enough flex to just raise it up and over and lie it flat on the main controls, out of your road.

    The power supply is directly below the transport so 1: Be careful and 2: don't touch any bare contacts on the back with that back panel off.
    There will be big capacitors in there holding a charge.

    If in doubt either don't touch, or keep one hand in your pocket.
