Ebay is the worse place to get belts- why do I know this? Well, as a servicer I am constantly replacing belts that are from E bay when clients can not get their decks to work with those wrong belts. While the counter belt is not critical the capstan belts are in a dual capstan system. The 32-2B is a X10 derivative so it will need proper servicing to work well. I am in the Chicago area and work on decks all the time as Skywave Tape Deck Repair just google it.

If you are not familiar with such work, I don't recommend trying to install belt(s). Replacing belts may involve disassembly of mechanism parts and critical adjustments to follow. Take to a pro/tech

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.

Cannot diengage tape heads . transport will not play or record but will rew and fast forward


The reel motor drive is independent of the head base actuator system.
You may need a new belt for the cam system or possibly a gear depending on what they used in this transport. This is a job for a Technician. I have not worked on one of those recently but have done thousands of other Teac and other brand decks over 40 years.

Need capstan belt for reel to reel -tascam-dx-44,pls help.


The model is not a DX44 as that is a dBx unit attached to either a Tascam 44 or 40-4. The tape deck model would need to be determined and when that is done go to Marrs Communications and order the belt kit for that machine and you will get the capstan and counter belt.

I have teac reel to real tape recorder. It drags in play mode and the speed is wrong. Do I need to change the belt?


Hi....
Most likely .
All the belts should be changed out and wheels/rubber rollers need cleaning.

Replacement belt for Tascam 122


well, after a quick search on the net, the only place I can find that still carries them is consolidated electronics in the USA. I have ordered from them years ago and they were very good. You will find an online catalog and how to measure your belt to get the right one.

NOW.....when belts go, the rubber deteriorates with age. The belts stretch. Carefully, without stretching the belt further, place it on an inch ruler, belt laying flat. Make tight corners on the belt by pressing one side against the other and measuring the length against the ruler. The belt length is the measured length times 2. Write this number down !. Try stretching the belt A LITTLE....if it snaps back to length, then it isnt in too bad a shape, and you can order a belt 3% smaller and one 6% smaller. If you stretch the belt and is slooooooowly comes back, then the rubber has turned to licorice. If it If your belt has already stretched and it is still in one piece, when you measure it, it will be too big. I would order several belts, one 10% smaller, one 13% smaller and aonther 16% smaller, that way you should get the right one. If the belt has broken, without stretching it, **** the broken ends together and tape them butted together, then measure the belt. Its been a long time since I've done a 122', but if there are other belts in there too, order them as well. When one belt goes, there are more to follow in the very near future. I would first try contacting Teac/ Tascam to see if the correct belt is available from the factory, or possibly an entire belt kit !. If you need more instructions on belt measuring, go to : http://www.ceitron.com/passive/flatLbelt.html and follow instructions at the top of the page.

Good luck.....Rob
