Getting a belt is easy but the replacement of only that part to fix the deck is only a dream. Older decks need all kinds of other work to make them right. I have been doing them now for 40 years and there are no short cuts if you want it fixed right. Also to get them to record correctly with the better tape of today they need record EQ modifications which I have been doing since Scotch 207 came out. There are now 4 1 mil tapes that are going to market. 1 from ATR, 2 from Pyral, 1 from Splicit.com called Capture.
Belts can be had from Marrs in Texas or Consolidated Electronics in Ohio. I don't mess with E bay belts as they only want your money and often times they are wrong. I change a lot of them that are oily looking and even the wrong size from customers that can not get their decks to work. They work well when I am done with them. I have been doing this business a long time and I was the guy at Teac in Arlington Heights. No amateurs here.

If you are not familiar with such work, I don't recommend trying to install belt(s). Replacing belts may involve disassembly of mechanism parts and critical adjustments to follow. Take to a pro/tech

Hi m522posner

There is a surprising interest in "vintage" hifi products these days. Your tape machines probably needs new belts. Check this site out. You can get spares for your tape machine here. Belt kits are $17. He does repairs also, but the transport to and from may be an issue for you. I suggest emailing Bob, he may be able to refer you to someone in CA > I could do the repairs,but I am in Australia. :)

You could have a go at freshening up the belts yourself:)

SOURCE: play back on Sanyo mr-929 reel-to-reel tape recorder is backwards

I also have an MR-929. The information that you need is in the 'Stereophonic 4 track stereo''. As stereo is only two tracks, there is another 2 tracks in addition to the one you are listening to. Wind the entire reel to the empty spool, and then play that. As you have to physically turn the reel over to do so, you should then hear the other tracks (or track, if recorded in mono).
I use my 929 to play my parents recording of my family from the late 60s, which were recorded on a valve (tube) Ferguson machine, which had a green "magic eye" level indicator, which as a child I found fascinating!

HOW DO I PUT THE TAPE THROUGH THE REEL TO REEL


Reel-to-reel decks usually run left to right. Put full reel on left hub, take-up reel on right hub. Feed tape across read / write heads, and between pinch roller and spindle. Take end of leader tape, wind carefully around take up reel until it is secure. Press play.

I have a Yamaha KXW302U audio tape player. And when I play a tape on the A deck, after one second, it stops.


The auto stop function is activating due to lack of reel rotation on the TU reel and so you may need a reel drive Idler tire or a new belt.

I have an old teak reel to reel I want to fix it but I NEED so badly the manual model # AR 40S can you help me....?


The unit you really have is a A4010S or a variant of that. The AR40 is just the electronics section. These are from the Vietnam era so they will need a lot of work. I still repair them in Chicago. The manual may be on Hi Fi Engine in Pdf file format but there are so many variants of that unit that the best manuals come from Stereomanuals.com.
The unit will need break pads, new belts, oiling and some frozen parts taken out and cleaned and lubricated and a good change a pinch roller rebuild.

I need a schematic for Teak reel to reel tape recorder model AR 40S


It comes with the service manual. Stereomanuals.com is the best place to buy them. The E bay manuals are usually junk unless you get an original with all the pages.

FF problem on Teac Reel to Reel


You need new brake pads installed as the ones in there now are dried up and may have fallen off. This is very common with older decks or 30-40 years old.
I am still working on these decks at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in the Chicago area.

My Teac 4070G reel to reel tape deck rewind and fast forward functions work, but the play function does not. Any ideas? Could it be a circuit?


Without actually seeing your Teac reel deck, i suggest you verify that all fuzes in the deck are good..not blown. Also with a tape correctly installed..ensure that left and right tape tension arms are held under tension/ closed by tape tension, also ensure the capstan shaft is rotating... look in back to ensure the capstan drive motor is running.. if yes, and tape still will not play... problem could be a stuck/failed solenoid, dirty or corroded push buttons, or corrosion on contacts where rear circuit boards/plugs insert into other boards.

Akai gx-625 reel to reel tape deck has no sound


This could be a head fault? Another possibilty is the preamp stage. You will need to look for something that would take out both channels. Such as an IC.
