Question about Teac DUAL CASSETTE A/R 110/220 Single Dual Cassette Deck

1 Answer

Deck turns on but doesn't do anything else. Motor runs.

Actually, it's only a single cassette and I'm not sure of the model; got it for a couple of $ with the assurance it had been tested - perhaps it was, but not with a cassette to see if it turned. I've opened it up and the main drive belt is broken (or just disconnected - it's kind of a sticky rubber that gloms onto itself). It's a flat belt about .25 in. wide. There's a kind of flywheel about 1.5 in. in diameter that seems to drive the other belts (which both look like "O" rings) - does the main belt go from the motor around the flywheel or does it drive something else? When I tried putting it around the flywheel, the motor seemed to stall, as though the flywheel was stuck or the motor just didn't have the power to turn it. Should the motor spin the flywheel even when the play/FF/Rew buttons are not engaged? Also, how loose should the other belts be, the "O" ring looking ones? They seem very sloppy to me, not at all like a car fan belt, and seem very stretchy. Thanks for your help. John

The main flat belt you describe is probably the capstan belt. The "flywheel" you describe drives the capstan. I don't know the model number of your deck (it would help if you could say what it is), but I'm pretty sure that the flat belt should go around the big flywheel and then around a motor pulley that should be very close to the flywheel. The motor should spin the flywheel even if the play/FF/RW buttons are not engaged. This might sound funny, but the other "O" ring belts might be very important (control motor belts) or not that important at all (tape counter belts)--it depends on the model number of the deck. One more thing: Every healthy capstan belt I've ever seen is NOT sticky and does NOT glom onto itself. That belt sounds like it is very old and needs to be replaced.

Looking for a Tech instruction manual for JVC KD-W5Double cassette deck. (LATE 1980s)


I haven't seen the instruction manual anywhere (even for sale) for your specific model number.

A couple of ideas for you:
The JVC TD-W354 manual is available online it's also a Double Cassette Deck, perhaps some of the settings are the same? - http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/90/4362Bien.pdf

Also Hi Fi Engine has the JVC KD-W55 manual online, but you have to join their website to view it - https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/jvc/kd-w55.shtml

Good luck in your search!

I have a Buick Rendezvous and I was wondering if its possible to put and single-din stereo in this car. The cassette and cd stopped working and I would like to fix it or change it.


Yes it is possible to put a single din radio in this car. Simplest way is to go on Ebay and order a single din radio fill-in kit and a factory radio wiring plug adaptor for the vehicle. Make sure you order it for the exact year make and model to be sure you have the right installation setup.

Need the short, "mode belt" for my TC-K611S tape deck


As long as it is the same thickness as yours the 19mm will be about right.
Belts are universal used on many brands.

Drive belts Sony FH-B411


Can be fiddly, get a piece of fine wire thats reasonably bendable, shape it into a J make its length about 5-6 inches. You'll need this to help get old belts off and new ones on. Try your electronic stores for VCR kits and get a couple, they've got heaps of belts.the wire can be copper single strand, about thick as a hacksaw blade.

Interested in hearing feedback about having purchased this product - JVC KS-FX200 - (purchase included installation) today, 8/18/2009. CD Changer NOT included in installation, but installation substituted...


I don't know this model in particular but JVC is supposed to be a good name.

As for being a cassette player, I hope you either have a bunch of cassettes stored away somewhere or at least another cassette deck to record your favorite music onto blank tapes because cassettes are pretty much obsolete so you pretty much can expect nothing new to be released on them and only find them in pawn shops, flea markets or garage sales, etc...

Some features I would look for in a cassette deck are things like Automatic Music Search, Music Scan (uses AMS and plays a couple seconds of each track), Dolby NR, Dolby B and Dolby C, Auto Reverse with Ferret Head(head actually flips over instead of a 4 channel head).

Cant get online or pick up a wireless network?


A couple of issues and questions

First generally a wireless router in installed onto a network either to the ISP's modem or to another router that is connected to an ISP's modem it is not connected on the wan side to a computer (unless that computer is acting as a firewall or proxy server to the internet). Computers are generally connected with a wire to the (optional) switch portion of a wireless router or wireless connection.

Have you tried testing with a computer wired to the router to assure internet access is possible without worrying about wireless issues?

If you are considering encrypting the wireless router did you test it unencrypted first to assure the unencrypted radio transmissions work?

Is the wireless communication encrypted for other computers you own and possibly not for the HP you are now trying to connect?

Are you sure the distance between the wireless router and the garage is not an issue. Perhaps you could test and configure the connection in the room with the router and when it is working move it to the garage.

According to the product specs for the HP Pavilion it has built in wireless B & G you did not include the router manufacturer and model does it operate on the either wireless B or G?
