Hi ferris,

Are you talking about a wheel or a belt? If it is a belt you can go to a vacuum cleaner shop and match one up( make it just a little small) and it will work just fine. I have done this with perfect results.

Best regards, Mike cannon6111@bellsouth.net

These answers are amazing. And wrong. It is an open reel deck.
Older units do not work when let sit for a long time because the belts decay, liquify and fall off. The Pinch Roller linkage gets solid due to dried up grease. These older machine need immediate attention and I tell people to not even plug them in as you risk burning out a $150 capstan motor- I have seen it happen. The deck will need maintenance by an experienced Technician of these kinds of devices. So far as I know there is Only Russ in New Jersey (New Jersey Factory Service) and myself in Chicago (Skywave Tape Deck Repair). Both of us were top people who worked for Teac in the 80's as Technicians or managers. We are qualified and experience with these decks. There are other good Technicians out there but I am not aware of any in Florida. It is a Technician wasteland I am told. I get a lot of units from that state. The good news is that you have new heads on the unit that have no wear- they are worth money just by themselves. Get the unit fixed. That would be my opinion. I have worked on these for 40 years so far.

FF problem on Teac Reel to Reel


You need new brake pads installed as the ones in there now are dried up and may have fallen off. This is very common with older decks or 30-40 years old.
I am still working on these decks at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in the Chicago area.

I have a teac 3340 reel to reel recorder and believe it can only function in 2 speeds 7 1/2 ips and 15 ips. I have many reel to reel recordings that are 3 3/4 ips. Is there an adapter or gadget I can use...


In short, no. if you look closely you will see the Teac 3340 has a much larger/thicker capstan shaft than other Teac reel decks. This feature allows the faster tape speeds...7 1/2 and 15 ips. In order to slow down the Teac 3340 you would have to change the flywheel to one from another deck that was made to run at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2. Which is possible but some work..plus you would have to find a slower speed flywheel from another Teac deck. Also to maintain performance, the bias and Eq positions for the slower speeds would have to be readjusted from 7 1/2 and 15.

TEAC 2000R SITTING FOR WHILE NOW WILLNOT PLAY


This sounds like the solonoids are not working. This can be a power supply problem, a control problem, or the solonoids themselves. In any case, this will need to see a service shop. Where are you located?

The two arrow buttons on either side of the FAST key will play it Forward or Reverse. Combining the FAST key with a direction initiates a fast forward or rewind.
