You can try and get one off E bay but I have seen the jack replaced on those with standard IEC types and then you can use any in hand computer type power cable. From being in radio I have hundreds of them- they are used in equipment other than computers.
Firs clean heads, Then cgeck for dBx jumper cable in the rear- these all have to be in for the unit to work. Then if that does not work put unit on back- remove bottom cover and the retaining bar and the reseat the third card down- make sure to line up the connectors and not to bend any pins. If this does not work then the unit needs to be sent or taken to a Teac repair person- I am in Chicago and another is in New Jersey. Other shops may charge you a lot of money but they may not fix it- that is what my customers tell me that has happened to them.
Hi Gary, This makes me think the Capstan Shaft is not turning either due to a broken or stretched belt or that the capstan motor itself has stopped working. This may be a job for a Technician. You first determine if the Capstan is turning or not- this is the metal post that contacts the Pinch Roller that rotates and is the way the deck gets it's speed regulation. If it is not turning look inside the deck from the side to see if the flywheel is turning and that the belt is on that flywheel. Lastly make sure the capstan motor is turning. Beyond that a Tech may have to take over from there. I am in the Chicago area and can repair it if you are close. Many people send me units from all over the USA anyway. My name is Sam. I operate Skywave Tape Deck Repair firstname.lastname@example.org if you need my help.
This could be anything from a defect in the power supply to a defecive motor to a slipping belt. Without seeing the actual unit, it will be near impossible to determine which is the root cause of the problem. Given the unit's age, it should get a complete overhaul including the replacement of all rubber parts. Parts are still available for these. Expect a parts cost in the $50 range. Take it to an audio repair shop that has been around for a while. They will be gald to get to work on such a unit.
