Question about Tascam DA-30MKII

2 Answers

Da 38 8 track audio

This machine which uses digital tape keeps eating tape and will not eject properly. I literally must take a pen and dig out tape debris out. Is there anything I can do myself? This machine is old and out of warranty, so there is no concern of voiding warranties by tinkering. Thankyou!!

    I will reload a tape into it and see what it does. How is my best way to take apart this machine to get to the assembly. And is the assembly user serviceable or replaceable?

    thankyou

This is a nice DAT recorder for its time. This unit uses a drive gear system for the FF, RR and the take up reels. Try the ff and rr, if they work, I am quessing there is a bad take up idler clutch assembly.l If the ff and rr does not work, the drive belt(s) are most likely bad. Good Luck

    I highly doubt if an mechanism assembly is available. You will most likely need to get to the mechanism and see whats not letting or making the take up reel turn. You could contact the TASCAM Operational Support Specialists at 323-727-7617 (M-F, 8am-5pm Pacific). You should be in front of your equipment so that any suggestions given by the product specialist can be implemented immediately, and to hopefully avoid subsequent phone calls on the same issue. It's also helpful to be familiar with the operation of your product as well as any associated equipment used with your TASCAM product

Try removing the battery and charging it. Then put the battery back on the camera. This will reset the cassette system. The cassette should open or close depending upon what status it is in. Once you get the camera to eject fully, clean your heads with a dry head cleaner cassette for Hi8 video. If your camera is still eating tape, could be a broken pin or damaged heads.

Tape drive is not identified in the show device command on Open VMS platform. Tapes can be insertedbut cannot be ejected. Tapes seems to be rewinding, but doesnot wind.


Try to press and hold the eject button for 30 seconds.
If issue persists try to reflash the frimware revision with HP diagnostic tool LTT.

My vcr keeps eating my vhs tapes


The pinch roller, guids, idler assembly, and the belts have to be changed. Then the guide alignment should be done to make sure that transport and heads are tracking the tape properly.

With age and use, these machines reach a point where they need maintenance.
