TEAC Parts

TEAC offers a variety of audio and video equipment to enhance any home entertainment experience, including amplifiers, speakers, CD players, turntables and VCRs. These products are sophisticated pieces of machinery relying on both electronic and mechanical parts to work properly. Anything, such as variances in room temperature, accidents, power surges and normal wear and tear can leave your equipment non-operational.

Repair issues with audio and video equipment

To help troubleshoot and repair your TEAC equipment, here are some of the common issues.

  • Turntable—Significant speed variations not only make the record unlistenable but can also possibly affect the record and the turntable. Some common causes of speed variation include changes in room temperature, low bearing oil, belt tension, the turntable sitting unlevel or a problem with the transistors.
  • CD players—Perhaps the most common problem for a CD player is either not being able to read a disc or the tracks skipping while playing. One possibility is that the disc is dirty while the other is that the heads are dirty or misaligned.
  • Speakers—If the sound stops coming out of your speakers, there are a few possible causes. The wire or other cords behind the stereo system can get loose or damaged. The speaker might have been damaged or blown out completely from overuse or excessive volume. Also, there could be a wiring or other electronic issue.
  • Amplifier—The most common problem with amplifiers is overheating. This generally happens from overuse or keeping the levels maxed out, but it can also occur if your amplifier does not have proper breathing room. Most amplifiers are equipped with a shut-off switch if they are too hot, but electrical damage can still occur.
  • VCR—A common problem with VCRs is the cassette not loading or ejecting properly. This can be caused by a faulty switch operating the mechanism or the mechanism itself coming off its track or otherwise breaking.

Checking your speakers for damage

If your speakers aren't producing any sound, then there are a few steps to diagnosing the problem with them. First, check that all the wires and cords are firmly in place and not damaged. Second, take off the grille and examine the speaker for signs of damage. These include holes or tears in both the speaker and rubber mounting.
