Maybe you could just clean the heads. If anything visible comes off they're TOO dirty. Or or look at it yourself with a strong light source and see the wear by evaluating reflections from the head surface.
HI... There are 2 belts in the mechanism that would need replacing. I've fixed 2 of these. There's a very small belt on the underside of the tape drive assembly 1.55 inch belt x 0.039 www.studiosoundelectronics.com # SBO1.55 Dont remember the other
I purchased a used Tascam DM-24 mixer about 2 years ago, and it 's been
running great. Just about 2 months, it frequently shut itself off
with a message:
" Power Supply voltage (+5V) is too low for stable operation. Please restart DM-24".
Of course, many attempts of restarting the board, but it won't turn
back on after several hours later, and only lasts about half a day work
only. Very frustrating. Any idea I could get help or
fixed? million thanks for suggestions. Brian
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?
Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged.
Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head.
It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes.
Give it a try and see!
