My Tascam DR-1 digital recorder will not turn on

I have tried a newly charged battery, and connected a Tascam PS-P520 power supply and it will not turn on. I have tripped the reset button several differebt times (through the hole) on the rear of the unit and still the screen will do nothing but light up while I hold the on button. No information comes up on the screen. This unit worked fine for 12 months.

SOURCE: Tascam dr-1 recording problem

There is a "PB Control" button. I had the same problem. You've inadvertently told it to change the speed or something on playback. Make sure that none of the indicators at the top of the screen are active (i.e., white letters on black background). Press the PB Control button to toggle it on/off. Also, any files transferred to a computer will not be affected.

SOURCE: my tascam mp-gt1 won't recharge - device error

I had the same problem. After trying to turn it on many many times over weeks, I gave up. A few months later I tried it again, and same "Device Error" only. Then I decided to just mess around with it. So I held the power button on with my thumbnail while I pushed all the other buttons. I held in the MENU button for at least five seconds. Held in the ENTER button at least 5 seconds.... multiple buttons. These didn't seem to work, I don't think. but then decided to turn on the power button using the edge of my desk while several fingers pushed multiple other buttons.
To my great shock, all of a sudden, the bloody thing turned on like it's supposed to, logged into a Sugar Ray song I was learning awhile back, apparently. Go figure. After that, it turned on correctly twice so far.
So, heheh, I have no idea what the cure was. Just screw around with holding in multiple buttons while the power is on, I guess.

SOURCE: DR-1 MAC FINDER does not see it!

I had a similar problem. What i did was to replace the tascam provided cable with another one (similar) from Iriver t30. works wonders. found out that the original cable couldnt plugged in properly to tascam although it did recharge the unit.

Hope that helps.

Tascam dr-07 when I turn on the display reads system err 50


Kennedy, Do hard reset by hold down the track edit and up arrow keys simultaneously while powering up. It will re-initialize the disk and ask you if you're sure you want to. Ans. yes using the (yes/enter) key, and the unit will re-boot itself and return to the welcome screen as loaded from the factory.
PRESS THE HELPFUL BUTTON

How do I recovered deleted files from a Tascam DR-1MP3 player


Hi! As far as I can tell, there is no way to recover anything deleted off the recorder (found this out the hard way!) Best advice I can give is back it up on a hard drive asap before deletion. That way your material can be put back onto the device at a later date. It\'s a pain but it\'s saved me a few times!

Sorry I couldn\'t be more help!

My tascam dr 100 gives a 'writing failed' file error' message and stops recording


Try using a smaller memory card. This only happens to me when using a 4- or 8-gig card. 2-gig and below, No error.

Bought a new sd card and the tascam dr-1 reads it as protected


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I cant charge my dr1 with tha ac adapter. when is connected the charge indicator is off what can i do?


Lean on the power button while it's connected. If no screen appears, do the same while connected to a usb port. It will show if it's charging on the screen. If no display, lean on the power button for 10 seconds while it's plugged in. Still nothing? Buy another for $160 used but get the model that also runs on AC. Also, get a protective case. I'm second guessing that your tascam took a hit or you're using the wrong supply maybe? I thought mine was dead once then I just kept on the power button for about 10 seconds and it came back to life from a deep hibernation.
.I'm going to buy a second battery so I can run it down all the way & charge it back up all the way. The usb charge is healthier for your unit. (Tascam, that is.).
Good luck

Navigation ring came off


The scroll wheel should click into place if you push on it. There are small plastic ridges around the inner hole of the scroll ring that act as clips. If these ridges are worn down, it will no longer click in. The DR-1 is a good recorder, but cheaply constructed.
