Ferric tapes use standard bias and playback. FeCr (ferric-chrome) use standard bias and chrome pb. Chrome tapes use high bias and high playback.

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.

My Play, Pause, and Record button will continuously blink on and off, which prevents me from opening the cassette door using the eject button to play a tape.


That would be me at Skywave Tape Deck Repair- maybe I have contacted you already through Thumbtack.
I can not say more here but if you search for tape deck repair in Chicago you no doubt will come across me sooner or later.
The only other person you would be qualified would be Russ Bachmann at New Jersey Factory service. We both worked at Teac factory service facilities and rose to high ranks at those facilities.

Ho do i use the high speed dubbing feature to quickly transfer tapes to my pc using the alesis Dual-Cassette Tape Digital Archiver?


What's your hurry? You copy a tape once but listen to it forever in real-time without fear of it wearing out or degrading. Shouldn't it be as faithful a copy as you can get?

A little advice.... if you have any desire to transfer the higher frequencies from your cassettes to your digitized copies, do it at normal speed. The hi-end response of the deck is ok at normal speed but doubling it will double the playback frequencies, making incapable of reproduction with any fidelity.


Frequency Response

(-20dB recording)

Chrome tape 40-15000Hz (±3dB)

Normal tape 40-14000Hz (±3dB)

(0dB recording)

Chrome tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)

Normal tape 40-8000Hz (±3dB)

Imagine what its response at, say, 30000Hz might be. That's what doubling the playback speed would demand from the head and electronics. It ain't hi-fi anymore.

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.

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...


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.
