Drive Belts for AKIA Stereo Cassette Deck CS-M01A

I need to convert some old tape cassettes to digital files and my AKIA tape player take up drive is slipping and not winding the tape up tight. I think the old belt is stretched and would like to get some new ones.

    does the unit have a takeup belt as such, or an idler system that drives direct to the reel base. Idler tyres and the reelbase itself may need a good clean to renew drive surfaces. An emery board(for finger nails) can also be usful here to "renew" the drive surfaces. New spare part belts for this unit will be as old as the unit and may be in the same poor condition. I always select new belts and fit to suit the unit when overhauling a tapedeck. I keep a folder of different sized belts going up in 2mm steps to 200mm If you get stuck... i could size one up for you. I am in Australia and post turnaround may be a hold up :) Try cleaning em first and see how you go.

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.

No sound or recording to computer


You need a program to interface between the tape deck and your computer. Try Audacity. It's free.

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.
