Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a TEAC X1000R Stereo Tape Deck (reel to reel) that will not play. The fast and forward works and it still will not play.
That is a over simplified version of the truth. The X1000R is a very complicated deck employing a servo tension system of the reel motors- these often times get off reference and need adjustments. If the Capstan belt is to be replaced it is best done by a Technician- why is this? Because the change of any capstan related part requires the calibration of the speed adjustments on the capstan servo board. In other words- the belt just does not plug in. The Flywheels should be pulled out and cleaned and the bearings oiled- Just putting on a belt will not accomplish this. I kind of know these machines as I have been a Teac Technician from the early 80's and have worked at the Factory Service in Arlington Heights IL. I operate Skywave Tape Deck Repair in the Chicago area if you want the deck serviced correctly and with a 6 month warranty.. I repair Teac, Pioneer, Sony, Technics and Studer units all the time. I have been servicing decks for better than 40 years now.
