Question about Teac DUAL CASSETTE A/R 110/220 Single Dual Cassette Deck
Do you know where I can get a replacement belt for a Tascam 122 cassette deck
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.
