Teac x-300 not playing

I have just bought a second hand Teac x-300 pro reel to reel tape machine & not sure how to work it yet, I have just bought 7" reel tape for it, fitted 2 of them on. When I press play nothing happens, do you know why this is ? Ive also enquired about buying a main drive belt for it but it would be very helpful if I could get the manual, do you know anywhere to get a manual from ? Thanks. Glen.

SOURCE: Main drive belt

One of your tapes has gone bad. It may be knotted up inside the cartridge, so that it works for a short time before becoming to difficult for the drive to spin, popping the belt - or the belt may pop seconds after you insert it. To fix this, put the belt back on and then insert each of your tapes until you find the one that pops the belt (or just sounds obviously difficult for your drive to spin), and remove it from rotation.

Btw - I'm a field engineer for a tech company that services about 800 customers on the east cost - I see (and fix) this problem, with this drive about once a day.

SOURCE: How to change belt in teac x1000r reel to reel tape deck

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

I picked up a reel to reel deck to play tapes that are about 30 years old. It plays fine, but I noticed the take up reel is about 75% full, but the play reel has about 40%, so it won't fit. Thoughts?

Logically, if the full tape reel and the empty reel are identical the second must fill at the same rate the other empties and all the tape from the first will fit on the second.

What does happen, however, is at the start the second reel seems to fill much quicker than the first reel is emptying, which is understandable when for any given tape length the second reel will revolve between at least twice as fast as the first reel and probably even faster.

A tape reel that appears to be half full will have much less than half the available tape capacity filled.

FF problem on Teac Reel to Reel

You need new brake pads installed as the ones in there now are dried up and may have fallen off. This is very common with older decks or 30-40 years old.
I am still working on these decks at Skywave Tape Deck Repair in the Chicago area.

I have a teac 3340 reel to reel recorder and believe it can only function in 2 speeds 7 1/2 ips and 15 ips. I have many reel to reel recordings that are 3 3/4 ips. Is there an adapter or gadget I can use...

In short, no. if you look closely you will see the Teac 3340 has a much larger/thicker capstan shaft than other Teac reel decks. This feature allows the faster tape speeds...7 1/2 and 15 ips. In order to slow down the Teac 3340 you would have to change the flywheel to one from another deck that was made to run at 3 3/4 and 7 1/2. Which is possible but some work..plus you would have to find a slower speed flywheel from another Teac deck. Also to maintain performance, the bias and Eq positions for the slower speeds would have to be readjusted from 7 1/2 and 15.

TEAC 2000R SITTING FOR WHILE NOW WILLNOT PLAY

This sounds like the solonoids are not working. This can be a power supply problem, a control problem, or the solonoids themselves. In any case, this will need to see a service shop. Where are you located?
