How do I get fast forward & rewinds to work on my Teac W450-R dual cassette deck..?

Check the belts, inside the unit you should see a rubber belt which is what pulls the tape fast forward or rewind. Some belts with time get loose and slip, they can also break and fall off which will not let you fast forward or rewind.
Open your cassette player and look where the plastic pulleys are located and check for the belts, they might not be broken at all but very loose and slip on the plastic pulley.

It could be belts or internal cam motor contact sensors. The transports that Teac sells are not direct replacements and DO NOT WORK.

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.

Getting belts for TEAC W-890R. I'm currently sitting here a home with a DEAD TEAC A-350 Cassette Deck -- DEAD because I was told you can get belts for it (I have since found out that is is NOT true and...

That is the state of conditions at Teac and they don't care about tape customer anymore. If you need belts for any unit it is simple to find the belt kit at Marrs Communications. They do not have he cheapest prices bu the you don't know what size you need and Fred took time to find his out. If you want to do it the other way you download a copy of the PRB cross reference manual and look up the belt type that goes into your deck. The you go to Ken's Electronics and order the belts online. This does not come with instruction of how to put them in. In my many years as a Technician working on all kinds of tape decks I have never seen an instruction to put belts in a machine- it is assumed that if you can not figure this out that you probably do not belong in the machine. In cases where belts are not in place sometimes the parts layout diagram can help you determine how they go in.
I am an ex Teac Lead Technician from Chicago.

I have a TEAC W-450R Stereo Double Reverse Cassette Deck. For some reason, the REC/PLAY II side will not operate. It has not for some time. In fact, that is why I believe I mothballed it some years ago....

I have not seen those to a large extent due to their value not being worth a repair. I did work on them at Teac though. The capstan motor of the right side deck sound like it is burned out. I have some motors here so it is just a matter of if you want me to work on it or not. I get a lot of units in all the time- I am Skywave Tape Deck Repair in Chicago area.

Belt replacement in a sony tc-wr645s tape deck

I have just spent half a day trying to replace the drive belts in my sony twin deck unit , in the end it still didnt work as the the old rubber belt did some damage to the unit , anyway shops like **** smith or tandy stock the drive belts , take the front of the unit away from the main case there will be a plastic casing that surrounds the belts there are at least two belts, there should only be two small screws undo these and move the plastic unit forward on the plastic mounting brackets then you will see the metal wheel and the plastic wheel that you fit the belt around , its a bit fiddly but i can do it in my sleep now even though the motor died it was a good experience

Deck turns on but doesn't do anything else. Motor runs.

The main flat belt you describe is probably the capstan belt. The "flywheel" you describe drives the capstan. I don't know the model number of your deck (it would help if you could say what it is), but I'm pretty sure that the flat belt should go around the big flywheel and then around a motor pulley that should be very close to the flywheel. The motor should spin the flywheel even if the play/FF/RW buttons are not engaged. This might sound funny, but the other "O" ring belts might be very important (control motor belts) or not that important at all (tape counter belts)--it depends on the model number of the deck. One more thing: Every healthy capstan belt I've ever seen is NOT sticky and does NOT glom onto itself. That belt sounds like it is very old and needs to be replaced.
