Question about Teac DUAL CASSETTE A/R 110/220 Single Dual Cassette Deck

TEAC CX-370 Cassete Deck

Hi:

I have an old TEAC CX-370. It powers up, but when I push play, FF, or rewind, nothing happens. If I remove the cassete an push play, one of the spindles turns. Can I repair this myself? What do you recommend?

Thanks!

Jon

Could be a worn out belt? The cassette loads it the drive down too much. Hence why it turns with no tape.

How do I get fast forward & rewinds to work on my Teac W450-R dual cassette deck..?


Check the belts, inside the unit you should see a rubber belt which is what pulls the tape fast forward or rewind. Some belts with time get loose and slip, they can also break and fall off which will not let you fast forward or rewind.
Open your cassette player and look where the plastic pulleys are located and check for the belts, they might not be broken at all but very loose and slip on the plastic pulley.

FF problem on Teac Reel to Reel


You need new brake pads installed as the ones in there now are dried up and may have fallen off. This is very common with older decks or 30-40 years old.
I am still working on these decks at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in the Chicago area.

Thaks for helping. My tape deck door has suddenly stopped working. the tape is inside and when i turn on the wpower there is a clicking sound. it is a TEAC AD-500 CD player/reverse cassete deck


Without physically looking at the cassette deck myself, I cannot be 100% sure the tape is wrapped around the pinch roller and capstan. The capstan is the chrome rod which the rubber pinch roller pushes to regulate the speed of the tape moving across the head. However it is approximately a 90% chance the take up reel for the tape stopped working from a bad tape or a loose belt which drives the tape take up reel. The clicking sounds like it could be the auto reverse solenoid because it thinks the tape has reached the end of play. The fun part is to remove the tape which you may have to disassemble the front panel if you cannot gain access to the tape from the top or bottom. You will need to cut the tape and remove it from the capstan and pinch roller to open the cassette door. Sometimes you can remove the capstan to free the tape. Once you have cleaned all the tape out of the unit make sure the belt for the take-up is good. If it is glazed, cracked, loose or broken order a belt. Clean all the pulleys and capstan and replace the belt. Your unit should be functional after the above procedure.

Hi, when I put a cassete in my tape deck TD-W315 the cassete runs very fast. It looks like a LP in 78 RPM? Does anybody can help me?


Check to see if the capstain roller is pressing against the capstain. Sometimes they get stuck or something has broke preventing it from pressing on the tape.

The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

it has probably thrown the capstan belt and will require a new belt fitted. the transport relies on capstan rotation to engage play. a separate reel motor operates ff/rew and takeup funtions

Tape deck won't open


If this is a deck where the tape slides in horizontally, like most car stereo tape players, you may have a broken or slipping belt. The fact that you "haven't used it in a long time" suggests a worn-out belt.

In my car stereo, the belt slips when it's cold and won't play or eject the tape. After a few minutes, the unit "warms up" and the belt starts turning. Then everything is fine.

I think we both need to replace our belts.
