I need help to replace the belt in my Teac C-3X

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.

Why don't tape decks play?


If your X-10 has a separate drive motor for the capstan , it could be weak and in need of replacement.

The C-3X could have belt drive and the belts could be weak and in need of replacement.

Teac a103 cassette deck. I want to know how much of this thing do I have to dismantle to replace the belts?? the online manuals ****!


It is not all that hard. You need to take the transport out of the chassis and then remove the screws required to get the motor mount and thrust plate off of the rear area of the flywheel. I have done them many times at Teac in the Chicago Factory Service. You need to get the right belt first. There may be more than one belt to replace in the unit such as one in the front near the counter. I can fix it but it might not be as cheap as you might think. I have been servicing Teac decks for 40 years so far.

Getting belts for TEAC W-890R. I'm currently sitting here a home with a DEAD TEAC A-350 Cassette Deck -- DEAD because I was told you can get belts for it (I have since found out that is is NOT true and...


That is the state of conditions at Teac and they don't care about tape customer anymore. If you need belts for any unit it is simple to find the belt kit at Marrs Communications. They do not have he cheapest prices bu the you don't know what size you need and Fred took time to find his out. If you want to do it the other way you download a copy of the PRB cross reference manual and look up the belt type that goes into your deck. The you go to Ken's Electronics and order the belts online. This does not come with instruction of how to put them in. In my many years as a Technician working on all kinds of tape decks I have never seen an instruction to put belts in a machine- it is assumed that if you can not figure this out that you probably do not belong in the machine. In cases where belts are not in place sometimes the parts layout diagram can help you determine how they go in.

How to replace the belts in a Teac A300 cassette deck


The mechanism needs to be taken apart sufficient to get to the flywheel and capstan motor- this usually entails taking the metal motor bracket off the back. It is not that difficult once you have done one. I may have replaced 50 to 100 of them at Teac in Chicago. Also oil the capstan bearing when changing a belt.

I have a Teac LP200 and the turntable will no longer turn when I lift and move the arm over. Is there a belt to replace? How does one access it?


Hi,
your unit has "The efficient belt-drive system provides accurate play and control" and normally the belt lasts for long time ..i.e at least 5 years..
If you sure that it is belt ,you need to take the turntable disc (should be a security pin in the middle ) than you can access underneath of disc or some models needs to access from bottom of the turntable ,inside the receiver..
just in case ,if you need detailed user manual in pdf format pls visit he URL below..
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :) Thanks

You can get a FRESH belt kit from here. Cost you $10 plus some post. There is a new pinch roller listed against this old girl also could be worth replacing at the same time when you service the deck.
