Tape deck replacement

I have been having some serious problems with my camera, so i took it to a camera shop and the owner said he could fix it, he said he will replace the entire piece (the part you can turn or whatever) for $279.99+tax CDN. is there any where i can buy this part on the internet and do it myself? Thanks

I didn't hear about a place where you can get the whole deck but even if you find it you will need some tools and jigs to adjust it. it does not work right without proper adjustments.

I have a 1998 mercury sable and the tape deck doesn't work when I put a tape in it flips from side 1 to side 2 a few times then it ejects. how can I fix this?

May have to remove the unit & take to a car radio
shop to have it repaired
Those shops are very hard to find, but will fix it
If you don't pull it out yourself it will get costly &
no repair shop fixes radios & tape deck,so forget
that approach

Sony tape deck won't play tape.

Dual well decks are among the cheapest and poor designs resulting in the problem you are having. Those decks that are well built may still need belts after a long time but the final result of the repair is a machine that will give good performance like when it was new while the dual cassette deck give the poor performance and then less due to wear that was had when they were new- figures like Wow and Flutter, speed accuracy and they rarely put really good heads in these as well. I fix them for clients but they never come up to a Teac C-3RX deck quality wise. Just so you know I have been working on tape deck for 40 years and even at Sony at one time. The ES line was the only good dual cassettes made and they have their problems too.

My 2005 Toyota Camry tape deck keeps ejecting the tape to my XM Radio. I bought a tape cleaner and it also rejects that tape after a few seconds.

Thank you for your question.

Tapes can cause problems if they have a bit or drag on them causing them not to roll smoothly. The chances that this is happening with two of your tapes is unlikely.

This usually means that the sensor switch needs to be replaced. You should take it to a Toyota dealer and get an estimate fixing the problem.

The other option is to simply get a new deck and have it installed by an independent car audio shop.

An estimate from the dealer and a new deck are sometimes not too far apart. It may be time to upgrade.

Sony deck will not drive tape

The belt is worn out already, so it need to be change. you can dissemble the deck then bring the tape mechanism to a shop and replace the belts.This will solve the problem.

Battery door won't close anymore on Canon A630. Is it replaceable?

It is probably replaceable. I had the same problem on one of my cameras and took it into a camera shop. The guy there took some strong tape and taped it closed. He said" It would cost more to replace that little door than the price of a new camera." You could take your camera into a shop and ask them about replacement though. Yours might not be as expensive as mine would have been. You could check your manual also for replacement parts available. it might be something you could install yourself. It is worth a try and if you don't have the manual go to and look for manual downloads. Good luck to you.

Teac A-21 Stereo Cassette Tape Deck turns un, but won't play cassette tapes...

very likely that the drive belt has broken. I have fixed a TEAC myself using a large O-Ring from a hardware store (I know I was lucky to find a very close match). Open the unit and find the broken belt and take it to a hardware store to "size up" a replacement. Use the opportunity to oil the gear shafts and clean the rubber pinch roller.

Power failure and I need to remove tape

If you can do the repairs yourself there are two ways to fix the problem. Dismental the camera. Try to locate the power board. have a keen look at the components near the battery connector or the power connector. there you will be able to locate 3 to 4 safety fuses. check the continuty. if found open replace it and the problem can be solved. AND the other way is to locate the motor for tape deck loading mechanism. Remove the flex ribbion connector of the motor from the pcb, then try giving 3volt supply from an external device to the motor in both the direction. in one direction it will move the deck outward, but be carefull when the cassette is being ejected a little portion of the tape may get damaged.
