Hi, new to the forum got a Krell KAV 300 CD player and the cd drawer won't open. As I understand its a teac cmk-4 transport, but what I don't understand is people refer to the Teac VRDS 1? What's is that? The name for the complete transport system?
Could also do with someone confirming the part numbers of the two gears I need to fix, looking at ordering them from CHS. Many thanks Jon

Jon,

As far as I know the Teac VRDS 1 is just the transport only version of perhaps the more normal VRDS-7 and 10 and 25 models. The VRDS needs to run through a DAC converter.

Have you made certain that it is the 2 wheels that are damaged. Do you know where they are? Would be happy to help and also I am due here tomorrow is one of the wheels, I only bought one of them as the other one was absolutely fine. They are about half the price of CHS if you are interested. If you want me to talk you through how to access the wheels let me know, would be happy to explain over the telephone.

E.

Hello one and all,

I have experienced the same issue here in the UK, with my T1 draw mech, where the plastic gear wheel has failed.

So far the story is that I phoned Charles Hyde for the Teac spares, only to be told Onkyo have taken over, called Onkyo in Germany, passed me to GenServ who will repair items, but say they are not authorised to sell internal parts, only external accessories, so then phoned Teac, (now based in Germany) passing me onto Sontec, who, gave the same answer as GenServe.
Phoned Teac again in Germany, who has suggested to call TriPlex... who are now on lunch break!!

If this fails, can anyone suggest a solution, as after reading the entirity of this thread (which has been really usefull and helpful, Thanks ) I am starting to get frustrated that I cannot buy this simple part, but is available from Teac to one of their service agents (in the UK).

Update....

Triplex were really helpful and both gears will be replaced, the lazer gear too, as preventative maintainance.
All for just shy of 70 Euros!!! including taxes and P+P!!

Thanks for the extra address for parts... always good to have !

Now, to find out how to set the lazer up properly..... can anyone guide me in the right diection...?

Whilst I'm at it I may upgrade the clock and PSU..... any suggestions?

Default VRDS T1 gear available

I am selling 2 aluminum gears of the VRDS CMK 4 transport. The original plastic gear breakes with time due to the lubrificant which weakens the plastic. Anyone interested drop me an email.
