Question about Audio & Video Receivers

TEAC TV770 no play

Cheers robotek,
I'll have another look at the drive - I was presuming the same idler wheel that flicks back & forwards for FF & RW, was the same drive for the play/take-up drive.
Like you say - damn good machine - bought it last year 2nd hand, used it for 4 weeks then this happened. Really want ot get it working again - 1st 3head machine I have ever had.

Hi again

If it uses the same idler(i honestly cant remember now) it may still have drive in ff and rew but not in play because of the reduced torque required and much less mechanical coupling force to the drive surfaces of the idler to the reel base as a result. Cleaning idlers with acetone gets the best resuts. Takes the top layer off!! Be careful not to get it on any non greasy plastics or and external casings(will leave marks). I often use an emery board(for finger nails) to get a decent new rubber drive surface if I cannot reshod a failed idler with a new rubber tyre. Let me know how you go :)

What disc should i use to burn, on teac rw-cd22 cd recorder


You have to use blank CD-R Audio or CD-R Music CD's in a home CD recorder. It will not record on data disc media but it will play almost any CD with CD Audio music on it.

Garrard turntable model 630s


There are a couple of things that need to be done here and there is no guarantee that the unit will work, but I have been successful in the past.

First remove the platter and clean all of the grease out of the unit. With all of hte grease removed, replace the platter and make sure that it turns freely. Regrease the unit one all of the old is removed. Next you will need to clean and treat the rubber drive wheel.

Good luck,

I have teac reel to real tape recorder. It drags in play mode and the speed is wrong. Do I need to change the belt?


Hi....
Most likely .
All the belts should be changed out and wheels/rubber rollers need cleaning.

Hi osujah

Most probably the record play switching causing the problem. It is the long switch that is connected to the transport, and switches when you engage record. Flooding this switch with CRC 2-26 usually cures the symptoms you have. Just be careful not to get ahy near the transport:) Check it out and get back to me here is it does not sort out the problem. Cheers.

On reaching track 10 to 12 on any cd playing on my Teca cd player it continually jumps tracks back and forward.


Hi derek55

Your unit will need a clean and service. The laser moves backwards and forwards on on 2 rails.These rails are notorious for the grease drying out and impeding the traverse of the mechanism. the solution is to strip the unit, remove the rails and clean them, reinsert with new graphite grease to prevent the problem reoccurring. In some cases it may be a faulty interconnect loom to the laser assembly, and in even fewer cases it may be a faulty spindle motor whose bearing tolerances have passed what the transport can cope with. Whilst in there, clean the laser lens with a cotton bud moistened with windex glass cleaner, then polish off any smears or residue left behind.

Hi saabangerman

The unit sounds like it has a take up clutch or takeup idler problem. Check all the drive assemblies in the unit. Remove the cover from the front of the transport inside the cassette well, and check the condition of the idlers and reel base drives. The counter belt can also gatherup and prevent the takeup reel from working correctly, or fire the auto stop mechanism preventing it from playing, although that sounds to be ok in this case as the unit will FF and REW ok. The takeup drive is supplied by a different drive idler as it requires much lower and more controlled torque. This unit was always considered to be a great tape deck and is well worth a bit of attention for restoration. You can get a new belt kit for $19.00 from here

AKAI CASSETTE DECK IDLER?


I wonder if it has a counter and if so, is the belt that drives the counter too loose? Is the counter working?
