How can I get belts for a stereo double cassette deck model number TD-W83 and where?

You just need to measure the diameter in MM of the old belts. You don't have to be too precise. Then put these words into google. "Cassette drive belt XXmm". Belts are universal so pick the nearest one to your measurement.

Drive belts on tape decks are mostly universal. You only need to measure the diameter of each belt in mm and then enter the result in Google as "Cassette drive belt ??mm".

I am looking for drive belts for Sony Model TC-WR801ES stereo casette deck

All you need to do is measure the diameter of each belt in MM. Then put "Cassette drive belt ??mm" into Google and you should find a supplier. Belts are not generally specific to any maker. Also you don't need to be precise on the MM. If you are removing them to measure, make a note of how they fit first.

Denon Stereo audio cassette deck DR-M30HX traction prob thin tape

Belts for decks are universal, there are plenty of places on the web selling them. Parts for a Denon from 25 years ago is another matter. However I think you might need only the belts, as the longer tapes speed problems suggest that it's the load that's causing the belts to struggle. All you need to do is measure the diameter of any belts for replacement. HOWEVER before you remove them make a note, or photographer, how and where they fit.
Use Servisiol Video 40 to clean the rollers and head.

Drive belts Sony FH-B411

Can be fiddly, get a piece of fine wire thats reasonably bendable, shape it into a J make its length about 5-6 inches. You'll need this to help get old belts off and new ones on. Try your electronic stores for VCR kits and get a couple, they've got heaps of belts.the wire can be copper single strand, about thick as a hacksaw blade.

Cassette Tape Deck Problem

Unit may have worn belts that are slipping. All cassette player belts are subject to deterioration even if recently installed. You may try ordering the belts yourself and have a service tech install them. The tech that installed belts 9 months ago may have used used belts. Although dishonest, it is common.
