Well, after a quick search on the net, the only place I can find that still carries them is consolidated electronics in the USA. I have ordered from them years ago and they were very good. You will find an online catalog and how to measure your belt to get the right one.

NOW.....when belts go, the rubber deteriorates with age. The belts stretch. Carefully, without stretching the belt further, place it on an inch ruler, belt laying flat. Make tight corners on the belt by pressing one side against the other and measuring the length against the ruler. The belt length is the measured length times 2. Write this number down !. Try stretching the belt A LITTLE....if it snaps back to length, then it isnt in too bad a shape, and you can order a belt 3% smaller and one 6% smaller. If you stretch the belt and is slooooooowly comes back, then the rubber has turned to licorice. If it If your belt has already stretched and it is still in one piece, when you measure it, it will be too big. I would order several belts, one 10% smaller, one 13% smaller and aonther 16% smaller, that way you should get the right one. If the belt has broken, without stretching it, **** the broken ends together and tape them butted together, then measure the belt. Its been a long time since I've done a 122', but if there are other belts in there too, order them as well. When one belt goes, there are more to follow in the very near future. I would first try contacting Teac/ Tascam to see if the correct belt is available from the factory, or possibly an entire belt kit !. If you need more instructions on belt measuring, go to : http://www.ceitron.com/passive/flatLbelt.html and follow instructions at the top of the page.

Good luck.....Rob

    I have used Consolidated myself many times but there is also Ken's Electronics in MI. and Marrs Communications and MCM Electronics also has some belts as well as MAT Electronics. There are no shortages of belts if you are in the business like I have been.

How do i hook up my tascam 122 cassette deck to my Nad 7155 reciever i tried


The RCA outputs sockets on the 122 connect to either tape 1 or tape 2 "PLAY". on the Nad.
The Line In Jacks on the 122 connect to the record of tape 1 or tape 2 rec of the Nad.
If you connect it to tape 1 connect both to that.

To listen to the deck you select either tape 1 or 2 depending which you have connected it too.

Tascam 238 recording deck won't stop rewinding.


Well which is it 122 mk III or the 238?
The grease in the 122 will harden with time and gear crack or lose teeth. The deck needs to be worked on. There is myself in Chicago,
Russ in New Jersey that are still working Teac Technicians. There is Adrian in CA but I am not sure he wants to work on cassette decks.

Tascam 122 mk III error code


The Tascan 122 Mk III does not have a computer in it to give error codes. I suspect that you have a power supply issue but I can only help you if I see the unit. I am in the Chicago area and run a shop for fixing these decks. I have been doing it for 40 years and have worked at the Teac Factory Service in IL.
skywavebe@sbcglobal.net if you need my help.
The symptoms are recognized as a cracked transport gear that is resolved by a new gear and a transport cleaning and new grease put in. I have done about 6 of them as this is described. I have parts in stock.

Tape reel on either deck stops and tape gets jammed. This is on a Tascam dual cassette deck model 322.


Try replacing the belt, because when the belt is a bit old it looses its elasticity and it can't drive the whole thing properly.Tape A and Tape B works independently.

Dual Cassette Deck won't stop or auto-reverse


There is a tape tension sensor which, it appears, isn't working. Check to see if the linkage to this sensor may have been misaligned while you were replacing the belts. Also check to see that the sensor isn't binding or sticking.
