AIWA AD-F800 Replaced belts, old ones totally degraded. If I insert a cassette it will play but only play for 2 seconds (good audio out) but then it stops?

It is important to thoroughly degrease the pulleys before fitting the new belts and it also helps to remove some of the polished drive surfaces with some fine Scotchbrite.
It can also be the perfect time to apply a little light machine oil here and there with a precision oiler.

Finding new belts can be a problem. Most people left to their own initiative will select a belt that fits, often using the old belt as a pattern or by measuring. Unfortunately it is rare the correct size of belt will provide enough friction to drive everything successfully. As a general rule the square or round section belts of the right size must be stretched considerably in order to do the job. Even flat neoprene belts must be stretched by a large amount to fit and drive.

In the absence of knowing the correct size it is well to measure and guesstimate a suitable size smaller and then fit progressively smaller until satisfactory operation is achieved.

Replace belts on realistic sct-30

I can't tell you how to change the belt on your model though I have changed many belts...

Some belts are fairly straightforward to access and others are more like a torturous route march but once the belt has been accessed, the next problem is identifying the belt cross section and diameter.

Buying a belt from the manufacturer as a spare part is likely to be expensive and often difficult as the trade generally prefers to obtain replacement belts from a general component supplier meaning the manufacturer needn't keep any stock.

Replacement belts are listed in diameter of length size increments and cross section shape and size. If you know the size of belt needed, ordering is easy but belts begin to stretch from day one so measuring the old belt would be useless and using string or a tape around the pulleys also useless.

Typically a new belt of the right size must be stretched to fit around the pulleys - some considerably and some not as much and mostly by how much smaller the new belt needs to be is pure guesswork, consequently it usually pays to order a selection of sizes and choose the one that provides the best result.

Before fitting it is well to remove all traces of residue and oil or grease from the pulleys and to slightly abrade any highly polished driving surfaces with something like Scotchbrite.

Cd gets stuck in recorder makes clicking sound..

I would just guess that the belt that is in the eject mechanism is now stretched- That is if there is a belt. That is very common in all CD player units.

The CD trays on my Fisher DAC-199 will not come out. The machine just hums. The door will sometimes open or close.

That is most likely a belt that has stretched with time. Some belts are easy to install and other are so that you must remove the transport to get at the belt location. The symptom is very common in belt type drawer systems. I see it all the time.

I hear a squealing belt when trying to open CD drawer. There is a small black belt driving plastic gears that appears to be stretched out.

This is a common problem and a tricky repair, the old belt must be removed and sized up for a replacement, most service shops carry a belt gage for proper sizing and new belts. But keep in mind that the timing of the gears is critical when replacing the part.

Where can i find the little rubber belt that connect the motor to the drive gear that opens the CD drawer in my CD player

Depends on which Yamaha CD player you have. But this part fits many models If you remove the old one and measure it (diameter, width of belt and cross section type e.g. square, flat or round) you can get generic replacements from any decent electronics store for about £1 in the UK. Don't forget to allow for the fact the old belt will have stretched so you'll need a slightly smaller diameter replacement. See here

Disk drawer will not open

A small motor turns a belt, which then drives the gear that operates the drawer. Over time this belt stretches or breaks, and the drawer doesn't open. Replacing the belt cures the problem.

I've looked at the couple of belt catalogs I have, and nothing for NAD is listed. You'll need to measure the old belt circumference and thickness. Almost all of these are square belts, usually in the range of 2.5 to 3.5 inches circumference. If you're measuring the old belt, take off 10 to 15% since it has stretched.

A local electronic service shop may have a suitable replacement. Otherwise there are many sources online (MCM Electronics is one I deal with frequently here in the US). In a pinch, you can even use a small rubber band until you find the right replacement.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!
