very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.

possible that the drive belt has broken or is slipping. Disable all outside noise and listen closely as you attempt play or fast forward button. can you hear a motor turning? I have replaced a drive belt in these but may be hard to find except maybe on ebay (search for an as-is unti for parts only).

If you are getting no power then you need first to check the internal fuse. It might have simply blown without anything having gone (if your lucky). Some models use a fusable resistor, often an odd looking resistor with PC markings as: FR (100) unlike normal ones that have R100.
Check to see if the power switch is broken, then look around at the power section on the PC board. Suspect anything on a heat sink, look for signs of burning and damage. If you have a muti-meter carefully check to see if anything is getting power.
Good luck!

Why don't tape decks play?


If your X-10 has a separate drive motor for the capstan , it could be weak and in need of replacement.

The C-3X could have belt drive and the belts could be weak and in need of replacement.

I want my teac w600ro pla y deck a then deck b then stopyt


The unit needs work but it might not be worth repairing- that is up to you but most dual cassette decks were very poorly made units. That is why I always steer people away from them. I worked at Teac in Chicago and in fact still work on decks now under the skywave tape deck repair if you were to look me up.

How to replace the belt on a Teac W-750r cassette deck


In all the years I have been in tape decks repair I have never seen one. You either have to work with an experienced Technician or do it yourself using common sense. Going to college gives you a degree and knowledge of parts it dos not tell you how to fix anything. That may be why I work on some Nasa Engineers tape decks.

The left side of New W-890R cassette deck plays at triple time. Right side plays normal. Tried to adjust with Pitch control but not the answer.


The transistor in the servo capstan motor is probably shorted- this happen now and then and you need a new Capstan motor. The question is most dual cassette decks are not worth the repair.
If the adjustment make no difference then that is likely the problem.

I have a TEAC W-450R Stereo Double Reverse Cassette Deck. For some reason, the REC/PLAY II side will not operate. It has not for some time. In fact, that is why I believe I mothballed it some years ago....


I have not seen those to a large extent due to their value not being worth a repair. I did work on them at Teac though. The capstan motor of the right side deck sound like it is burned out. I have some motors here so it is just a matter of if you want me to work on it or not. I get a lot of units in all the time- I am Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area.

A 303 cassette deck - the belt has been changed. The feed spool and capstan turn fine. The take up spool does not turn and play stops after 5 sec. Take up spool is fine in fast forward. Help !


This is a case of a failing reel motor. What happens i sthe brushes become aged and wear down and the motor has what they call a dead spot on the Commutator. The motor will work fine at high speeds as the inertia is working for it but when you use a slow speed as in play mode the motor hits the dead spot and stops. You will need a new reel motor in the most likely case- I can service the deck if you want at Skywave Tape Deck Repair Chicago area. I will most likely put a new motor into the deck.

Could be a worn out belt? The cassette loads it the drive down too much. Hence why it turns with no tape.
