A common fault on Teac X-10R capstan drive when the capstan unit belt is worn or not in tension. The unit won't read tapes because of the incorrect tension.

If the capstan drive makes no sound at all, then the motor may have blown.

If the motor is working try using back and forward, sometimes this can fix a minor mechanical problem.

If you need to contact Teac you can call the number listed on the Owner Manual.

Is there a repair service in the ventura ca area

Look up Adrian Pro Audio as he is the best bet for a Teac repair. The other places are not all the good. I do get a lot of units sent to me in Chicago however from all over the USA. Depends on the model you have.

I have a Kenwood VR-507 trying to hook up Teac EQA-120 Home Equalizer

As with any stereo analog device, processor or tape deck - Outs go to Ins. But any typical AVR will only be able to use it for analog stereo sources. Once a Tape Loop is engaged all digital inputs are disabled though you CAN still use DSP effects on the analog sources.

I have a teac receiver AG-790 and would like to hook an equalizer to it. How do i go about it?

Find the manual at:

and on page 6 they show how a Tape Deck is attached. Attach the EQ exactly like that and if you have a Tape Deck or two attach IT(them) to the EQ as if IT was the receiver.

To engage the EQ at the receiver choose Tape and everything passing through the receiver wil lbe routed OUT to the EQ and back IN via the PLAY connections.
