Hi Carol, from what you said, you could make the tape move
On the front of your Teac A103, there are two Instruments, called VUmeters, ask, when you play the tape, do the needles of these vumeters move indicating the presence of sound?
If they move, it would indicate that the tape is being read
If they do not, it may be that you are playing a tape without recording or that the reading head is dirty, with accumulation of debris from the cassette tapes
To clean them, you should use a thin cotton cloth, wet with a little alcohol, open the cassette door and pass it through the upper end of the heads, until they are clean, the head, which reproduces and records the cassettes is the that is in the middle
If all this is done, you get the vumeters to move and nothing comes out, you can try a pair of headphones and connect them to the output on the right
if you hear sounds, check the RCA cables for interconnection with the amplifier
Do the tests I suggest and comment
Indicate to which device you are connecting the cassette output to play
I await your comment
Regards Franco Dosil

Hola Carol, por lo que comentas, has podido hacer que la cinta se mueva
en el frente de tu Teac A103, hay dos Instrumentos, llamados VUmetros, pregunta, cuando reproduces la cinta, las agujas de estos vumetros se mueven indicando presencia de sonido?
Si se mueven, indicaria que se esta leyendo la cinta
Si no lo hacen, puede ser que estas reproduciendo una cinta sin grabacion o que el cabezal de lectura se encuentre sucio, con acumulacion de residuos de las cintas de los cassettes
Para limpiarlos, debes usar un pa?o fino de algodon, mojado con un poco de alcohol, abrir la puerta de la cassettera y pasarlo por el extremo superior de los cabezales, hasta que queden limpios, el cabezal, que reproduce y graba los cassettes es el que se encuentra en el medio
Si hecho todo esto, logras que se muevan los vumetros y no sale nada, puedes probar con un par de auriculares y conectarlos en la salida que se encuentra a la derecha
si escuchas sonidos, revisa los cables RCA de interconexion con el amplificador
Has las pruebas que te sugiero y comenta
Indica a que aparato estas conectando la salida de la cassetera, para reproducir
Espero tu comentario
Saludos Franco Dosil

You can but be shure to measure the voltage that is required by the two units, also check that the polarities are the same. The current consumption should be fairly the same

The most likely explanation is some dirt or dust on the lens inside of the machine.

This sounds like a loose solder joint or something else that is out of place, but clicks back in place when you move the player. Should be easy to spot. Might just need re-soldering. Have a look inside and see what you can see. Try turning it on the side. It doesn't need to be on, but watch carefully what moves!

Hi Rick, in order to connect your DVD player to your Teac, the DVD player, you must have audio outputs with RCA Red and White (L and R) connectors and enter it into the Auxiliary input of your Teac, or other input available
Discuss which brand and model is your DVD player, to find the best possible solution
I await your comment
Greetings Franco Dosil

Hola Rick, para poder conectar tu reproductor de DVD a tu Teac, el reproductor de DVD, debe contar con salidas de audio con conectores RCA Blanco y Rojo (L y R) y lo ingresas en la entrada Auxiliar de tu Teac, u otra entrada disponible
Comenta que marca y modelo es tu reproductor de DVD, para encontrar la mejor soluci?n posible
Espero tu comentario
Saludos Franco Dosil

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This means that your DVD Player is not a region free player, the DVD's you are trying to play are locked to some specific region.
I hope you will have a clearer picture now.
Regards, Waqar.

Google (teac)(CRX 95)(manual) without parens for instructions.

MMMmmm user manual here:

Teac HDR2250T User Manual

(note: there are 2 manuals there)

And very odd... this "WHIRLPOOL" link has a lot of info on troubleshooting and you MAY have some luck there:


And THIS link mentions a "Firmware" update?


Also there appears to be a old 2010 FIXYA link with your model:

Questions Answers for teac hdr2500t

Otherwise, no luck on troubleshooting specific problems like yours? Sorry and wish I could offer better help!
