Sorry -- there is no one as qualified as these guys - your machine will be better than when you bought it new
unfortunately it in the US and you will have to deal with freight & border issues.

Haven't used these people myself, but an audiophile friend has used them a couple of times, and has been pleased with their service. Couldn't hurt to give them a call.

Try Claudio Electronics in Brampton. Claudio was the long time service manager at Bracks. Servied my CR-7A . Very competent and fair. Sorry I don't have his number as I'm not at home now.

I hope you find a good shoppe in the GTA or Canada in general because Electronics Service Labs probably would not service your CR3A anyway. I spoke to Jeff several years ago about rehabbing my 581Z when it was down and out and he declined to work on it. He stated that his shop services the top-of-the-line Nakamichis' only, primarily due to the amount of time invested and money it costs to rehab your average Nak.

In other words, it doesn't make much sense to spend $500.00+ to rejuvenate a deck that's worth $150.00 once repaired. I reminded him that the 581Z cost $1150.00 when new but according to Jeff, that model wasn't good enough to make the cut. Perhaps they have changed that policy since then but I doubt it.

Like hifijones said, it could be expensive to be professionally fixed.
But what you mean exactly by "fixed" ?

If the deck only needs head's alignment and idler/pinch roller changed,
you could make it yourself with little of our help.

Unfortunately, I'm not living in GTA area...

There is a top roller the turns the reel hubs. It's either worn out or dried out. Basically the take up reels are not turning fast enough. If you can get the part it's not a huge job.
There are a couple of other causes but that's the most common.

Yes, looks like your take-up reel hub ass'y is worn out.

So, it's a mechanical issue. Easy to fix by yourself.

Take-up reel hub ass'y - #CA80725A


Don't use it until fixed because it will eventually "eat" your cassette tape... :wink:
