Drive belts are standard sizes. All you need to do is measure the diameter of the belt. Before you remove it make a note (take photos even) of how it fits.

That is an "O" ring drive belt. you can buy them online by size, remember when you order it that you need a shorted one as the old one is stretched. Here is a link to where I get my belts.

I have a model# mwr20v6 and it is a vcr/dvd combo and it will not turn on. it will start up and then shut right back off


I just had this problem with mine. I took the top and front cover off and discovered that the belt drive on the right side of the VHS tape assembly was off. It is fairly simple to get back on with a pair of the small spring loaded needle nose pliers meant for electronics work. Unfortunately I was not able to repair mine at the pulley that is driven by the motor was worn out and cocked sideways which is what threw the belt off in the first place. It was not economically feasible to fix it so into the trash it went.

Hope this helps you.

Is a drive belt available for this tape recorder and is it fairly simple to replace?


Thanks for the additional information.

I haven't replaced one on that particular model before, but as models of the period were designed to be dismantled for regular maintenance it's not usually difficult to do.

Replacement drive belts are readily available: as an example look at this listing on the Swiss eBay website which also includes a handy photo of a typical drivebelt installation. Although the listing is in German, the information is repeated in English further down the page. Best of all this drive belt is listed as being a brand new (compatible) one, old stock (original equipment) ones are usually perished and useless. Just make sure that you tell the seller that it's for the Telefunken M204 if you place an order. You can browse for additional spares by clicking here.

If you have any questions regarding my reply then please add a further comment, but if I have answered your question please let me know by sparing a moment to rate my answer.

Vhs tape ejects when pressing record


1. Rejected tapes on a VHS recorder is due to a dry belt that is the transfer belt on ejection tray is worn and needs replacement.
2. Because VHS recorder are now not so prevalent and there are so few repair shops specializing in there repair due to parts acquirement it may be best to get a new recorder.
3. Addressing the belts. The belts usually grips a pulley which in turn turns a gear that moves the ejection tray forwards/backwards when given a certain signal on from the control board. This could also be a worn gear from constant use of the load/ reloading of VHS tapes.
I hope this helps.

Have an RCA VR618HF VCR. Have cleaned the head and roller. Have problem with inserting tape, unit shut after about 10 sec. and eats tape. Took top off to watch. Tape goes in, two arms strect the tape...


Before you insert the cartage. Look to see if the carriage is all the way back. If it not. The unit is out of sync. A gear has slipped a tooth some where. I don't about this particular model, some vcrs have a belt drive, Take the bottom off and see if there is a belt. It could be slipping or broke.

Marantz CP430 fault


Hello,

I have had the exact same problem with a CP430, Whether in Play Rewind or Fast Forward, after a short duration the tape stops. After a lot of Looking & thinking, I noticed that a few seconds prior to the tape stopping, the tape counter stops. (If you dismantle this unit be sure to work in an orgainsed fashion,& you will need some tiny Phillips head screwdrivers too) If your not confident then dont proceed.

The tape counter is driven by a belt, & on the spindle that drives the counter is a magnetic wheel, that runs past a sensor on a PCB.

I didn't have a replacement belt, so dismantled the unit, & chemically cleaned the Belt (cellulose thinners), until no more 'black' came off, in order to eliminate the possibility of tape slip, I also used a stiff toothbrush, to clean the plastic gears that drive the counter, as any resistance, will cause the belt to slip. I think the reset button had also been pushed hard, & bent the mechanism slightly, as it had a tight spot, so i adjusted the spindle, & finally lunricated the Counter gears (Not the Spindle & pulley, as its too close to the belt to introduce lubricant). Upon reassembly, The problem seems solved, the unit now plays records Rewinds etc, without any issues.

Its a tiny drive belt, & any resistance in the drive train, (dust / fluff / as tiny grit even) is enough to cause the belt to slip, & stop the counter which in turn stops the tape.

I hope this helps.

Thankyou
