Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Capstan makes the reels drag sometimes even stops


Replace with a capstan belt from Marrs Communications it should be a 16.8" IC belt. Fred know which one if you tell him the model.
The capstan motor can also be worn out. These need to be taken apart and examined at to brush life and to see if it has bee overheated. I get a lot of motors that are burned up by customers.
It is a $150 part.

Reel to reel will not play


You do not mention the brand or model number which to answer the question effectively is needed- different machines are designed in different ways. The function of the fast wind and the play mode only differs in that in play a capstan is involved that regulates the speed and the reel motors just do the take-up of taper and a little back tension for the supply reel. You may have either a sticky Pinch Roller linkage or a non- rotating capstan shaft that might point to a loose or broken capstan drive belt. There are also the condition of the Pinch Roller surface and the surface of the Capstan shaft that can be glazed or rubber hard and non-compliant. The rubber Pinch Roller can be re-rubbered, the capstan shaft can be reconditioned and the Capstan Belt can be replaced. Capstan bearings and motor bearings need oil once a year as well. I hope this helped to some extent- I have been working on decks now for better than 40 years.

Cassette loads and won't play. Cassette won't eject, or if it does the tape itself hangs inside the VCR. The cassette reels do not turn anthough the head does. I believe the problem lies with the belt...


Hello
There si one belt connected to its capstan motor to reel drive gear assembly to reel up the tape. If this belt has either loose or broken, the fault you described here will occur. To change the belt, you have to buy one new with same diamentions. To get it, you must ahve the damaged belt in hand as sample. Just look at its bottom side, and is there any extra sid screwed into, which can be removed to see and take the belt away from the mechanis. There will be one, with every Toshiba VCR. If so, open it by unscrewing the screws, take out the belt, buy a new one and replace it.
Before doing this, make sure that the capstan motor is rotating or not. Just unplug the VCR from power socket, and replug it again. If capstan motor try to rotate even a single turn, it means that it is OK. Replacing the belt should solve your problem.
If you want anymore asistance, feel free to get me through Fixya. OK.

My Teac 4070G reel to reel tape deck rewind and fast forward functions work, but the play function does not. Any ideas? Could it be a circuit?


Without actually seeing your Teac reel deck, i suggest you verify that all fuzes in the deck are good..not blown. Also with a tape correctly installed..ensure that left and right tape tension arms are held under tension/ closed by tape tension, also ensure the capstan shaft is rotating... look in back to ensure the capstan drive motor is running.. if yes, and tape still will not play... problem could be a stuck/failed solenoid, dirty or corroded push buttons, or corrosion on contacts where rear circuit boards/plugs insert into other boards.

I have TEAC A 4010. Motors are running, belts are ok, but tape does not turn. When I push on the capstan the tape wants to turn, but stops.


Ensure the rubber pinch roller presses the tape against the capstan drive shaft....ensure the capstan drive motor is turning..and the belt to the flywheel is snug, and not slipping. the tape transport engage relay might be stuck...a relay maybe corroded ...may need cleaning. Without seeing it cant say clearly what may be the problem. also ensure the tape tension/shut-off arm is under tension by tape that is correctly installed.
