    Yes, all tapes.
    I have replaced the capstan drive belt.
    I have lubricated the capstan bearing and the rear bearing of the capstan drive motor.
    And I have tested the phase shift capacitor on the capstan drive motor - OK.

Why does tape go slow, then stops?


Gary hi! I am not sure whether your machine is solenoid controlled but if it is then I would suspect the solenoid that operate the capstan roller to be overheating, I had the very same problem with my Studer and Revoxes and when I smeared some heat sink compound (Available from electronic stores selling components like Radio Shack etc.) and fit if the chassis is cast aluminium like the better manufacturers use,as a heat sink. You can chech the belts and the lubrication of the drive system but I doubt that. Clean the capstan roller with denatured alcohol or cleaning alcohol.

My Teac W450R works except the RH side RPM speed ti too slow. Does it need lube or cleaned? All functions work well otherwise.


It may need a calibration with a speed tape and frequency counter or wow and flutter meter. You should make sure the Pinch Roller is clean too.

Nakamichi BX 300 tape deck runs slow in play,belts and idler have been replaced


There is an adjustment in the motor that sets the speed however you need to have a frequency counter and speed alignment tape to adjust the speed correctly. There was also suppose to be oiling of the mechansm at the time the belts were put on.

How do I connect a teac ax-20 mixdown panel to a teac a-3340s reel to reel?


It's a 4-in, 2-out panel. Well, you attach up to 4 INPUT channels (labeled plainly on it) and run the two output channels to any two of the the Record In connectors on the Tape Deck.

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 A1200U R/R runs slow


This could be anything from a defect in the power supply to a defecive motor to a slipping belt. Without seeing the actual unit, it will be near impossible to determine which is the root cause of the problem. Given the unit's age, it should get a complete overhaul including the replacement of all rubber parts. Parts are still available for these. Expect a parts cost in the $50 range. Take it to an audio repair shop that has been around for a while. They will be gald to get to work on such a unit.

Motor plays at a very slow speed


capstan belt may be failing. check this by removing lid and touch the capstan flywheel when running. if it is easily stalled/slow to come up to speed and or the belt slipping badly then belt will require replacement.
