I did not mean to say anything negitive about you!
I need a little more step by step way to get to the flywheel, or the proper order to remove everything that is in the way to install the new belt. The flywheel is tucked into a place that is not easy to access. So, I guess I'm on my own....and I'll just start removing parts until there is nothing left to remove. I think Teac built the deck around the belt with no hopes of anyone ever changing it.

    Just wondering, as you gave me a somewhat negative rating in a Thanks for trying for my advice; were you looking for someone to do the job for you? I can locate someone in your area if you like For my self I have overhauled thousands of tape decks over the years, changing belts is not that hard a job when you have done a few. Your first one may take a little longer, but you have to just get in and do it. The service manual does not give you instruction on you how to do it, the learning part comes from doing it for yourself.

    The entire transpoer will detach from the transport. Sometimes you have to take the front panel off the get access to the screws that secure it in place. OR they are in the four corners of the transport with sometimes additional screws from top and bottom. Dont go crazy, remove only the screws that are required. Release the spring/actuator for the record play switch and you are in.

    How bout upgrading me to FixYa,and I am, as I said,happy to help you. OR, you could go for a live chat, and accept me for your chat.
    I can do it from here better though really.

Is there a diagram on how to replace the drive belts on this casette recorderplayer


the short answer is "NO", but the good news is that you can find these belts. First take a photo of the inside of the deck so you can see where to put the new belts, (or make a drawing) now take the belts out of the device, if they are broken that's ok. take the belts to Radio Shack, they have a catalog there that will have drive belts in it, you can compare the belts with photos in the catalog, you can also measure the belts, but it is easier to match photos for the correct size. Another option is to use the make and model of your device to do an online search for parts. Chance are with a cassette deck it is most likley not being manufactured anymore and parts will be hard to come by. I admire your desire to fix it, these things are getting rare, one other thing I just thought of, is to try GoodWill stores, they may have an old cassette deck that you could buy and use the belts out of it to fix yours, (salvation army too) or yard sales, that's where I get a lot of vintage parts. You can also try your local TV/Radio repair shop, many have a large supply of msc belts for back when they used to fix this stuff. they are out there, you just have to be diligent in your search.

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.

Turntable won't turn


Hi!

Without any other information (and assuming you've checked to make sure there is power to the turntable and that it is turned on), the likely culprit is the belt drive of your turntable. Most, but not all, turntables have a "belt" that looks like a big rubber band on the underside of the turntable that connects the turntable itself to the drive motor. If the band has slipped out of place, stretched too far from age or usage, or broken, the turntable won't turn. To find out if this is your problem, gently lift the "platter" straight up (it should easily slide back into place) and visually see if the "rubber band" is in place. If it is stretched too far or broken, a new one should be availble form Teac or your local electronics supplier. If, by chance, you have a direct-drive turntable (unlikely), the problem will probably need professional work.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps!
