Why is my Tascam MS-16 only powering the VU meters and capstan?


That complexity of the unit can not be repaired remotely. It needs to go to a Technician that is capable. Teac people that are still in the business are Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and Skywave Tape Deck repair in Chicago area. I am the Skywave guy.

Why is my Tascam MS-16 only powering the VU meters and capstan?


First this is a large unit with a separate power supply. Check all fuses and make sure all cables are plugged in. The manual can maybe be obtained from Stereomanuals.com This is where I get manuals when I don't have them.

How do you connect tape deck to pmp 4000


Hi, use the RCA/Phono connections for the Tape In & Out. The level will be set by the Master/Main fader. If that is not so convenient (& assuming it's a PMP4000?) there should be a "Main 2" output & connections with the level controlled separately to Main 1 via a Knob / Rotary control over to the right above the "Mono" fader... Hope that helps... Good Luck!

My sony tapecorder tc-330 vu meter shows only one side working with the needle fluctuating, what causes that?


I have had that in a TC-366, the diode and a capacitor were the reason but you will need Technician tools, meters ans a soldering station to get the unit fixed. Sometimes the meter movement gets
knocked out due to abuse or shock. Does it move at any time as when you turn on the deck?

Tascam 644 When I press play it won''t stay on play, it stops. It will rewind and fast forward but that too stops by itself.


Scott has a point. You need to determine what is causing the unit to stop and it could be a bad cam motor belt if it has one or the lack of take-up die to the bad idler or even a dead spot on the reel motor. The reel motor will work normally at high speeds due to inertia but at low speeds as are used in play the dead spot of the motor can become much more apparent.

Tascam midstudio 644 powers up and can rewind and fast forward.


You have not mentioned the model. Hope you have checked the belt and the motor that drives teh main capstain and the reel drives. If this does not work then replace and proceed. Also the pinch roller could be defective and not holding pressure to the spindle. Check the roller for hardening of the rubbers. replace if this is faulty. I hope with the set loaded with a tape you can find which drive is not spinning to take up. This should be able to confirm you with the right section. Hope this helps. Good day

Tascam 238 tape deck


Common problem with these decks-the capstan motor needs to be replaced- A DIY job if you are careful and have some mechanical common sense- Tascam still sells these motors, around $100

Tascam 22-2 no sound


Yes you need to hook it up to an amplifier and speakers through RCA cable on the back. And or you can use headphones if there is a headphone jack?
Also make sure there is something recorded on the reel tape in the first place. You can do a test recording of something like a CD from your CD player or record something, then play it back, make sure you turn the record input volume knob up and make the RCA connections on the back of the reel unit and connect to your playback source you want to record. When you playback the reel tape, the db meters should be moving on the front of the reel deck, if they move then you most likely have some sound recorded on the reel tape.
If you still can't hear any sound and the db meters are moving, then check all your connections again and volume output knob on the reel deck. Hope this helps?
