Older Teac cassette decks

I have an older TEACdual cassette deck (W-750R) Just bought it (used) and have tried to figure out how the Tape Rev switch controls the actions of the two decks. This switch is a three position switch that controls the use and reverse action, and interaction of the two decks. The labling on the switch is pictorial with only one position having any labling (Cont. Play) on it. I'm guessing that it does different things for either one or the other or both of the decks. But I have worked on this for hours and can't figure it out. I'm also betting that the function is the same for other TEAC models and possibly for other manufactures. Anyway, anyone know how this works?

Put the switch to the (Cont.) position and the tape will auto reverse and continue to play till you push stop.

I had an Aiwa dual deck and by the way your describing it, when you select Cont. Play press play on one deck then play on the other. I am not sure if there's a difference as to which you start with. When the first deck is done playing both sides, the unit will goto the second deck and play both sides, then back to deck 1.

Teac w-750r double cassette deck stuck

The mechanism needs new belts and maybe grease cleaning and new applied. The dual cassette decks are not usually worth the charges a Technician will charge to fix them.

I want my teac w600ro pla y deck a then deck b then stopyt

The unit needs work but it might not be worth repairing- that is up to you but most dual cassette decks were very poorly made units. That is why I always steer people away from them. I worked at Teac in Chicago and in fact still work on decks now under the skywave tape deck repair if you were to look me up.

How to replace the belt on a Teac W-750r cassette deck

In all the years I have been in tape decks repair I have never seen one. You either have to work with an experienced Technician or do it yourself using common sense. Going to college gives you a degree and knowledge of parts it dos not tell you how to fix anything. That may be why I work on some Nasa Engineers tape decks.

Drive belts on tape decks are mostly universal. You only need to measure the diameter of each belt in mm and then enter the result in Google as "Cassette drive belt ??mm".

My Teac R-H500 tape deck will not play tapes

The belts will have failed. You will need to replace them for the deck to be reliable. If you are mechanically minded I can talk you through it... You giving me a FixYa rating will help my profile and loosen my lips on how to overhaul your deck. :)

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...

very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.
