The pinch roller is not usually sold seperately. It is part of an assembly that can can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Ad-f410 change pinch roller


Why do you want to change the Pinch Roller? Most of the time they just need a good cleaning and other things in the deck like back tension checked. Pinch Rollers are only changed if they are cracked and I have seen few cracked Pinch Roller in 40 years.

Teac x-1000r tape skewing off pinch roller


In the Teac X1000R this is most often caused by dirty Pinch Rollers and secondly bu a ring of oxide or a wear mark being developed into the capstan shaft. If cleaning the Pinch Rollers does not do it then a trip to the technician is required. These decks also have a touchy servo tension system that if upset can also contribute to the failure of this kind. I still work on these in Chicago area all the time. Russ the other ex-Teac guy is in New Jersey. Be careful of local shop with this model as many of them turn up the servo tension to resolve this problem which is the wrong thing to do that then burns out parts and the cost goes up. I have seen this mess many times as people bring me these decks as a last stop-- of course I fix then correctly with the use of the Tentelometer as is required. Pinch Rollers are often reconditioned with Naphtha after cleaning then with Denatured alcohol.

Eats tape


What used to happen with these is.... the pinch roller used to get a build up on them, running an head cleaner through usually fixes the issues.

Trouble is I do not know if you can still buy head cleaners anymore, if all else fails you could open the unit and clean the pinch roller with some surgical spirit and wait for half hour to dry then try again.

R360 wont feed paper in to printer


You need to clean the pinch roller at the back of the printer using a cleaning sheet. These come with packs of Epson Photo Paper and are slightly tacky which removes the paper dust and grime from the pinch roller.

You are missing pinch roller lock, its like piece of plastic tube 2 or 3mm (1/8 inch)
This part is not available individually as you need to purchase complete "pinch roller assy" and fixing it requires skills and experience of camera repair.

Error code 02-694


The probem as told on another site (sorry, can't remember to give proper credit) is that the pinch roller is not making contact with the capstan. THis is exacly what happened to my 1800 after sitting for a long time with no use. THe solution was to manually excersize the lever going to the solenoid to unstick the mechanism. Then, voila, pinch roller pinches, tape moves, UVW1800 happy again.
