No user parts available from manufacturer for this tape drive. Best bet is to find one on ebay that is for parts only and salvage what you can... good luck

I have a cassette stuck


Generally when a cassette gets stuck the take-up spindle is not doing its job and the tape wraps around the capstan with a gradual increase of the audio pitch. No easy way to get it out with the tape intact without removing the player and opening it up and carefully winding the capstan backwards until it comes free. The real problem is the take-up spindle belt is probably stretched and slips meaning this will likely happen again unless the belt is replaced. Google cassette belts for parts suppliers.

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.

Telex Copyette 1-2-3: Master well wraps tape around the capstan.


Tape wrapping on a capstan shaft is commonly due to a sticky pinch roller or capstan shaft but is also because the take-up reel table does not provide enough torque or tension to gather up the tape. The Teac MTT160 cassette is a test tool we use to determine what the deck is doing torque wise. Telex probably has something similar. I worked with a guy who worked at Telex in the tape business- He did not talk about them much but he did say they had a lot of belts in them. Maybe you are just dealing with a belt that needs to be replaced. Lubrication also tends to be needed at every rotation point as well. That would include reel tables. I hope this gives you some help as Telex repairmen are getting to be like Hens teeth.

You have fried the enclosure. Replacing it or the dc in is not an option. Ideally , you need to extract the drive and hope the surge did not make it past the bridge board. I would seek out a more sturdy enclosure, preferably aluminum for hear dissapation. Try mounting the drive internally in a desktop and finding out is condition before spending money on a new enclosure.

Usually you can smell the drive for any hint of "electrical burn" once its been extracted, or trace the extent of the damage in the enclosure.

Motor speed needs to be regulated by PWM. Reducing the current (with a resistor) actually lowers the torque - which, with a given load, does result in reduced speed - however, different length tapes (60min vs 90min), as well as different quality, and even current position in the tape, will change the load and hence the speed. You need to regulate the speed via PWM. It's sometimes done on a small board built into the motor, in which case you'd have a round hole into which you could insert an INSULATED screwdriver (tiny flathead wrapped most of the way in electrical tape works). It may be done on the main board, in which case you could find a pot conveniently labeled "motor speed", or perhaps "pulse width" or "pwm" or something to that effect. Find it, mark its current position just in case, and turn it to see if it gets the effect you're after. And there are some tape decks in the world with no speed adjust - they are designed with a specific speed motor and the sizes of the wheels and gears are calculated for that speed. Also there may be a mechanical fault/malfunction causing the speed problem. An initial check and thorough cleaning of the capstan and pinch roller should be done. If there is a buildup of tape oxide or a piece of a broken tape wrapped around the capstan, the tape travel will be too fast (do to the effective increase in capstan shaft diameter). If the pinch roller isn't fully engaging, the tape can be getting pulled onto the takeup spool at a speed faster than the capstan control. A different source of trouble might be a slip clutch (possibly an idler/clutch assembly)which is binding, or otherwise not functioning the way it should. Another type of motor doesn't have it's speed controlled by an internal or external voltage.. instead, the motor has an internal centrifugal speed controller. This type of motor can be found on older tape decks, and might not have been utilized more recently. Good luck
