Default TEAC VRDS CD T1 gear broken

Hi,

One of the gears that help to move the sledge in my CD T1 is broken with the result that the sledge doesn't move at all. However I can move the sledge by hand and everything works fine.

I saw today that there is a company http://www.chsinteractive.co.uk/ that stock spare parts and they seem to have a few of the gears for this player but which one is it that I want? The one broken in my player is white and consist of 2 gears one small with I think 13 teeth and the larger one with about 40.

Can anyone help?

Regards Hans

Yes, this is the same gear as in my player. One idea I have is to buy generic gears from a supplier of mechanic parts and build a new gear but I don't yet know if I can find the correct pitch and number of teeth.

The company I linked to http://www.chsinteractive.co.uk/ have several of thge gears for this CD drive but I don't know which one is which, does anyone have the repair manual so we can identify the gear name/part number?

Regards Hans

Probably not a bad idea to replace all of the gears in the sled drive train - this is what I did in my Sony.. The gears should not be all that expensive.

Have you tried contacting Teac for the manual? Or looked on line for it. Sometimes manuals turn up in the oddest places. I found my SCD-777ES manual online for free, Sony wanted something like $35 for it.

Hi,

I found and ordered the service manual here http://www.manuals-in-pdf.com/login.php and by the help of that I could identify the broken gear as "2 step gear" which I found here as spare part http://www.chsinteractive.co.uk/elec...-door-teac.htm

Price 5.28 GBP, if all goes well my player will be OK in a few days.

Regards Hans

Default TEAC VRDS CD T1 gear broken

Hello from Australia. My TEAC VRDS T1 needs a tray idler gear TEAC part 5801571100. Despite the age of the machine, if I can't find a spare, the machine sits idle.. (pun intended). It is a shame to junk a good cd transport for the sake of a plastic gear.

Can anyone help pls ? In following this thread, there was discussion about obtaining some generic gears and cobbling a replacement gear. Any progress with that ?

All responses greatfully appreciated.

Centre5

That is called "2 step gear" in the TEAC manual and is the same as I had problem to find. You can find it here http://www.chsinteractive.co.uk/elec...-door-teac.htm and it cost 5.28 GBP, Scalero posted a picture of how the gear look like earlier in this thread.

Hi Hans,


Did you manage to fix your T1? If not, I can try to find out what the price is for the gear and order it for you if you want.

I didn't read further to find out that you've found the part No. you need.

Just let me know if I can help in any way!


Best regards,


Audiofanatic

Many thanks for the assistance. I will try Charles Hyde in the UK as that company appears to be the only source for the gear. Thanks also for the pic. I will let you know how I go ! Centre5
