How do you replace the belts on a Teac W518R Dual tape deck?

When I turn on the tape deck, it just hums. I removed the top of the case and see that a small, thin black belt is broken and laying inside the deck. How do I replace this belt? Thanks,

You get oneof the approximate same size or slightly smaller and install it where it is suppose to go. Most shops that are competent will have the belt on hand and if this process seems to advanced, then you are not up to the job. You might have to take the deck out of the unit to work on it. If you are asking this question that would indicate that it might be more than you can do. Some people work on their own equipment only to wreck it as they have no experience in tape deck repair. There is often times a lot more to do than to JUST change a belt.

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

You can get a FRESH belt kit from here. Cost you $10 plus some post. There is a new pinch roller listed against this old girl also could be worth replacing at the same time when you service the deck.

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.

Thaks for helping. My tape deck door has suddenly stopped working. the tape is inside and when i turn on the wpower there is a clicking sound. it is a TEAC AD-500 CD player/reverse cassete deck


Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.

Instructions for Teac Tascam 32-2B belt replacement. I have had this Reel to Reel Tape Recorder for a number of years and the belts have now perished. I have purchased replacement belts on ebay but could...


Ebay is the worse place to get belts- why do I know this? Well, as a servicer I am constantly replacing belts that are from E bay when clients can not get their decks to work with those wrong belts. While the counter belt is not critical the capstan belts are in a dual capstan system. The 32-2B is a X10 derivative so it will need proper servicing to work well. I am in the Chicago area and work on decks all the time as Skywave Tape Deck Repair just google it.

Broken belt on Teac X7 Dual Capstan Drive tape deck


I just worked on one of those the other day. The unit needs other maintenance besides the belt- Flywheels need to removed and oiled and capstan shafts inspected and cleaned- I don't know how many ask me how to put in belts and then the unit end up at my shop because there are a lot other factors involved in the service of this deck. The last X7 I worked on needed both motors reconditioned but it worked great after that.
Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago if you need the job done right. I have the belts here and Russ is in New Jersey if you are out that way.

How to fit drive belt on Teac x-3 deck


Remove the back panel, then the top and sides metal plate, the the fron (after removing the head cap and three tape guide rollers). Keep the parts together in a save place.
Then remove the head bracket. Behind the heads, the drive belt is located. Remove the old one, clean the small and large wheel with some isopropyl ethanol and then attach the belt preferably without touching it with bare hands (use some dentist's gloves for example). Finally reassemble all parts in reverse order.
You can get spare belts for the X-3 ad X-3R or MKii over at eBay.It's also easy to replace the couner belt once you've removed the front panel.

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

My Teac R-H500 tape deck will not play tapes


The belts will have failed. You will need to replace them for the deck to be reliable. If you are mechanically minded I can talk you through it... You giving me a FixYa rating will help my profile and loosen my lips on how to overhaul your 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.
