Repair a flickering play button

It can be a bad capstan belt, bad motor or a power supply issue. I would have to see the unit to tell you what. I replaced motors in Onkyo TA2700 units not too long ago. The little DC motors in them do not last forever. But the units can be repaired in the right hands.

Why is my Tascam MS-16 only powering the VU meters and capstan?

That complexity of the unit can not be repaired remotely. It needs to go to a Technician that is capable. Teac people that are still in the business are Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and Skywave Tape Deck repair in Chicago area. I am the Skywave guy.

The belts as I have said before are just the tip of the iceberg, there i a lot more that a technician does that you have skipped over. There is a lot of oiling and lubrication of moving parts as well as replacing of idler tires on the decks parts. It needs to be serviced correctly before it will work well.

This level of machine requires a service Technician with knowledge of the workings of this machine. The typical Technician will adjust it to work but often times it is a mess when they get done. There are two remaining Techs that know their stuff in the US. They are Russ Bachmann at New Jersey Factory Service. Then there is myself at Skywave Tape Deck Repair (Chicago area). Contact me if you need help in Chicago or Russ in the New Jersey or NY area. We both take shipped in units all the time. We both worked for Teac and have been doing the job since the 80's. if you need more info on either.

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.

Instructions to replace belts on teac cx650r stereo cassette deck

The replacement of belts on any deck requires you to dismount the transport section and take thrust plate off as well as other mechanical parts to get to the belt location. It is at this time that the reel table should be removed and rebuilt as the take-up torque due to old felt will be excessive and you don't want to have to go in again. Oiling of the Flywheel bearings is also good to do at this time.
If you can not do it I work on deck as Skywave Tape Deck Repair near Chicago. That is one option. There is another service provider in New Jersey.

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.
