Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a teac a-4010 reel to reel. I turned on the power and manually moved the tension arm to see if the spindles turned and they did foward and reverse. I sent by fed-ex. When it got to the shipped destination it would power on but that is all. when pressing forward or rewind/ reverse nothing happens now. Could something come unplugged or a belt come off that is not readily noticable??? Please help. Thank you. David

    I have exactly the same problem. I have it all torn apart and am about to start signal tracing. It was working fine and I attempted to rewind it and then shut it off to fix the tape. Now there is power but no drive. IDK if it is in the switch mechanism or one of the relays. I need to dissassemble a little further. If I find the answer, I will post it here.

After much frustration, mainly from working with mainly unreadable prints, I was able to locate the source of MY problem :
There are two .9 ohm power resistors on the power supply board. They are responsible for supplying AC to various motors and relays. One of them was burned open and the other was reading 250 times what it should have. I replaced both of them with 10 amp inline fuses for now. Radio Shack sells 1 ohm 20 watt resistors which should do the job. IDK what the reason is for the low value resistor.

How do you thread a teac model 40-s tape player


There is no such model.
If you have a A4010S. The tape comes off the reel under the tension arm, over the reverse sensing post, under the heads and lifters, over the
capstan shaft (in between the capstan and Pinch Roller) then under the right tension arm and on to the take-up reel.

With TEAC A-2300s. Install new tape from supply side to take up side.


It goes from the left reel over the tension arm under the stationary guide in the head stack under the lifters between the Pinch Roller and Capstan shaft and then under the rigfht tension arm and threaded onto the reel. This is from memory but I am sure I have threaded 1000 or more decks in 40 years of service.

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.

I need to see/know the way to load the tape into the machine- TEAC A-4070 reel-to-reel


In short, the left and right swinging tape tension arms must be held up under tension by the tape....if these are allowed to fall this turns off the deck...

The two arrow buttons on either side of the FAST key will play it Forward or Reverse. Combining the FAST key with a direction initiates a fast forward or rewind.
