    Tascam 564 Minidisc drive belt replacement

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I dug out my old Tascam 564, to try and transfer off some recordings I made in the 90s, but the drive would not work anymore. I unscrewed the device to take a look and saw that the belt for part of the minidisc had become too loose.

    Does anyone have any idea of what kind of belt I would need to replace it? I’m hoping this is all that is wrong with the unit. I tried looking for a service manual but turned up nothing.

    Here is a view showing all of the drive:

    Here is the drive while I was removing the belt:

    I have recieved a reply from Tascam support who state:

    I am most sorry but individual parts for the mechanism were never available- the mech block had to be replaced as a completer unit but these too are long since obsolete.
    I am ordering a selection set of belts to see if I can find the right one through trial and error.
