Hi there. It will need a new pinch roller, and has a bias oscillator. problem. From memory, they use a module for the oscillator, and the pinch rollers are easy to get. Sorting out the bias may be the problematic part, and you will need to recalibrate the bias traps and controls if you want max performance from the unit once repaired. I would go about checking things like intermittent tape bias switch, and try wriggling the record play switch( internally) and see if you can get erase and rec back. Noisy intermittent switches can caused the symptoms you have.

If you are able to, I would be seeking a refund. If not, then repairs are feasible. Let me know where you are and I can help you find a repair guy. Cheers

SOURCE: I have a TEAC reel to reel stereo tape deck, Model

That's a rarity but easily fixed. Before pulling anything apart spray some penetrating oil (WD-40) or similar into a small container. Then with a cotton bud soak the tip in the penetrating oil and apply it to the base of the capstan where the bearing is. Allow this to sit for a few hours and even repeat it if it looks to have soaked the oil up. NOW, with the power lead out of the wall socket remove the top cover of the deck. You will have to remove a few knobs and mode switches too. Now see if you can rotate the capstan flywheel by hand. It might take a bit of pressure to get it to turn but once it does keep going until it starts to rotate freely.

By the way, check that the capstan drive belt is in one piece and not slipping first.

If it's running freely then reassemble the cover and other pieces tyhen put a few drops of light oil on the capstan bearing (sewing machine oil is ideal) Do this because penetrating oil will dry out after a while. That should fix it.

I'm assuming you know exactly how to thread the tape through the machine. Don't forget to position the stop lever on the upper side of the tape otherwise nothing will operate. If you are unsure about that write back and I will elaborate.

Check to see if the belt is off or broke. That could one reason.

Tape playback on Magnavox MWR20V6


When was the last time you ran the "head cleaning" tape in the machine? As tape collects dust and dirt - it gets deposited on the recording and playback heads. This ruins playback and recording quality. Also, since tape is magnetic - they tend to magnetize the heads, too (just like reel to reel, 8 track & cassette player / recorders). Demagnetizing them will help too. Here are links to both products:

How do I 'erase' a tape for a Dictaphone 1710?


I used to use "bulk tape erasers" to do the job in less than a minute for standard cassette of any length, 8 track and even reel-to-reel magnetic recording tape. Otherwise, you'll need to record "silence" over the entire length of tape. That will be time consuming - but will make the next recording clearer as opposed to just recording the dictation over the old recording.

Here's a link to some I found on Google. I'm sure there are plenty of other places to check (like ebay or craigslist) too. Don't forget to demagnetize the recoding head too! There are tools for this that will dramatically improve the sound captured on the tape. Here are a few I found. Finally, physically scrubbing the head with a plain old Q-Tip dipped in denatured alcohol to loosen dirt and grime that collects on the head and anything that comes in contact with the tape itself. You can get that, here.

Doing this along with replacing old tapes (they get stretched out, scratched, and dirty) regularly will keep the audio sounding crisp and clear.

Good luck!

Typewriter won't erase letters completely.


Correction tapes do have a shelf life and can dry out. You should try replacing the correction tape and see if it is better. If that does not fix it, does the tape lift up high enough to cover the entire letter? If not, you have a lifting problem and will need a tech to fix it.

I have a broken VHS cassette.


You can remove the 4 or 5 screws at the bottom of the tape, turn the tape over CAREFULLY pull the top off. If the tape pulled out of the end of 1 spool, you have to remove the clip in the tape hub, reinsert the tape and snap the clip back in. Holding the tape door open so as not to catch tape, put top back on and replace screws. Hope this helps.

Try demagnetizing the heads with a head demag device. This is not the same as a bulk tape eraser or a tape demag device.
