Tascam DR-1 won't power up or charge

Hadn't used my Tascam DR-1 in a couple weeks. Battery appeared to be dead. Used the USB cable to charge off my PC. Still no go, then I realized I had utilized my Blackberry USB rather than the Tascam. Tried plugging the DR-1 with my AC Adapter. Still didn't work, and now the Tascam USB cable isn't doing it either. It won't turn on and it won't take a charge.Have I fried the DR-1? Has the data on my memory card at risk? Could it simply be a damaged battery, which is very new, by the way? Thanks.

You can try to charge battery with AC charger. Data on SD card is not at risk, it is safe.

My Sony radio XDR-S55DAB has completely stopped working. Initially all that showed on the display unit was the symbol for a dead battery but this also appeared when it was mains connected. I have pressed...


I have noticed exactly the same issue with my Sony XDR-S55DAB

Even if it has batteries installed but only working off mains electricity, after several months it will not start when the power button is pressed and I have to replace the batteries.

The radio will work again if you just replace the batteries with fresh ones

Try this next time the batteries go flat; disconnect the radio from the mains, replace the batteries with fresh ones, and leave for a couple of minutes (you do not have to switch on!).

You can remove the batteries if you like then reconnect the mains cable and press ON

If your radio behaves exactly the same as mine, it will spring into life so how come?

In the "olden days" ie pre-2000, small portable radios often had a physical switch which connected and disconnected the power supply be it battery or mains.

Nowadays, many radios don't have a "proper" switch, but a "function" button - press it on, and the radio operates, press it again and the radio stops - to enable this, a very small amount of charge is required to keep the central "brain" alive in order to notice this, and in the case of the Sony XDR-S55DAB, this only seems to be supplied by the battery, not the mains adapter.

My advice is simply keep a spare set of batteries handy and replace them whenever your radio wont turn on. Using the mains adapter allows the batteries to lastfar longer than using the batteries on their own.

It is completely counter-intuitive that a "battery/mains" radio needs batteries to work off the mains, but this is the only design fault can find in an otherwise excellent radio.

My Rx-V473 won't turn on


It couldn't start after an update. I found how to fix it on the product page : http://download.yamaha.com/search/detail/?language=en&site=europe.yamaha.com&asset_id=58063&category_id=16446&product_id=1643029&1375038490

Receiver doesn't power up after the update.
Error message appeared when confirming the firmware version.
Recovery method using USB method:
1. Unplug the AC power cable from wall outlet.
2. Insert the USB thumb drive which has the firmware data stored inside, into the USB port located on the front panel.
3. Press and hold the INFO key and keep it pressed while you plug the AC power cable back into the wall outlet again.
" USB UPDATE " will appear on the front display. Then, release the INFO key.
4. The update will start automatically.
5. When " UPDATE SUCCESS " appears on the display, firmware update is completed.
Power off the receiver and remove the USB thumb drive.
6. Confirm updated firmware version.

My strde445 is 10 years old now...whenever I disconnect the AC power cord (even for a dew seconds) the Demo mode is activated...accordingly to the manual the DEMO mode should only be activated if the AC...


They don't actually say it in so many words but the "two week" comment and the Demo Mode startup on even the briefest power loss implies there is a battery or a charged capacitor for memory keep-alive somewhere inside the unit and it is dead or malfunctioning.

Maybe someone can add something more specific to look for. Either way, a tech needs to check it out.

My 8-year old Pioneer loses settings on extended power losses, too. Oh well.

I have a audiovox dvd player model D1998PK. I need to know how to tell when the battery is charged.


1. A blinking light indicates that the battery is not charging.
2. The steady light goes out (or turns green) when the battery is charged.
3. 6 to 8 hours for the initial charge.
4. Charging time after the initial charge depends on the length of time the battery was used and will increase over time as the battery gets older.
5. 2.25 hours of play time

Tascam DP-02 error 50:0


this happened to my dr-1 what i did is took out the SD card, used a card reader to put all the songs from the music folder onto my laptop, then erased the songs from the card, reinserted it into the Dr-1 and no more error.
hope it helps. tascam doesn't come with a card reader, they use a usb but i've found that a card reader is faster and easier to manage. you can get one anywhere they sell electronics for about $15. cheers
