    it's a pain in the ***. I think you have to make sure the tape is tight in the cassette before you insert it. You have to take the shell off and manually move the pivot arm to make the mechanism release.

The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

SOURCE: I have a Tascam DA-30 which ejects the tape

Many different things could sause a problem, belts, mode switch, capacitors in capstan or head motor drive circuit. Hard to say what exactly is wrong with the machine without looking at it.

How do I fix a Tascam DA-30 DAT Recorder?


It needs cleaning and new belts some of which are very hard to find because they are smaller than a dime. It can be fixed if the Pinch Roller is not cracked.

Tascam DA88 has error light and wont play tape or show time code


These are expensive to repair and not many people are repairing them. Probably a transport issue and that might be all there is.
If you look on E bay they are selling cheap.

My TASCAM DA-20 Mk II DAT doesn't play back any of my tapes. It still appears to record OK, but there is no level meter or sound or track finding when playing back, though the tape seems to be run


Hi Julian,
There is a lot that can go wrong with these miniature helical scan systems. When I had units like that I packed them off to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and they were restored. I am not sure about parts like drums at this point but Russ is your best chance to get it working again. He has corrected CDRW and DAT as well as just about anything Tascam makes and he even fixed some Sony units too. I know him as the counterpart to the Chicago Factory Service facility when it was open. He was the Manager in New Jersey then.

Hi, My TASCAM DA-20 mkII DAT recorder is holding onto a tape. It will play the tape and there are no error messages, but the tape will not eject. How do I get the tape out without breaking the DAT...


A Technician usually has to get a tape out of a machine when this happens. In radio when I was Chief Engineer for several stations in Chicago I would send my defective decks to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service in Emerson NJ. He knows how to fix these units.

Dictaphone transcriber 3750 won't play, reverse, or go forward. What can I do?


Does anything show up on the display? Like 'No Cassette' or 'End Tape'?

Are you using a foot control? Does the tape move when pressing the buttons on the machine itself? Is the foot control plugged into the side of the machine (and NOT the back)?

Tape Loading Error


theres a loading problem with the mechanism. It could be a nylon cam thats cracked and thrown it out of mechanical alighnment??? this is not for the handy man repairer!!! this should be taken to a repair shop for an estimate! as there are hundreds of volts inside a tv that can cause you to be seriously killed!!
