You can replace the hard drive with a standard PC hard drive. You can also remove the Tascam's drive and plug it into a PC to perform a low level format or diagnose it for problems.

Here's a link with some step by step instructions and photos which will help.

    Just wanted to add that this can also be a problem with the power adapter. Basically what happens is that the power adapter fails to supply enough power to spin up the drive at the proper speed and the DP-01 interprets it as a hard disk error.



    So you might try replacing the power adapter with one that has a matching rating as the originial to see if this fixes your problem. Might save you a lot of trouble and money.

TASCAM DP-01 won`t startup


Press and hold down the "track edit" and the "shut down" buttons while turning the power on until it says "-init screen- please wait". It will ask you if you want to initialize hdd. If so press yes/enter. This Will wipe your hard drive clean. If no just press no/exit. This works on the dp-01fx. It should work on the dp-01 as well.

Rode NT1A: i got an adapter so i can input it in the mic input the pc says an audio device has been put in but i cant find it anywhere! please help me i also have an Acer Z5710


The reason it is not being picked up by your PC is because the NT1A is a condenser microphone and it requires an audio interface that can supply phantom power (48V) to get it powered up. Without phantom power, the NT1A won't work. You many need to buy an external audio interface that provides phantom power to use the mic. Hope that helps.

Since the unit powers up and displays an error message it means that the power supply is working to some extent. The hard drive is probably malfunctioning and needs to be replaced. The DP-01 I have uses an 40 pin IDE 3.5" hard drive so finding a replacement should be easy unless it needs special formatting like TIVO drives.

As for the first solution - why do you think a PC hard drive needs -5v? The PC drive power connector has four pins - two grounds, 5v and 12v.

Tascam DP-02


I had the same message on my DP02 error 12 please power down. I went to an electronics store and asked a computer technician and he said it probably isn't getting proper power to start up .We looked at the manual specifications for power and found it needed a power adaptor which has an output of 12 volts and 2.5 amps which is 2500ma. Once I put that adaptor on it everything powered up and it works great.Look for an adaptor that says output 12v 2500ma and it should work fine.

No HDD:20 Please PWR OFF


It means the harddrive has crashed. I have the same model. It is a manufacturer flaw. You can try saving your recordings on external devices or contacting Tascam directly.

Tascam Portastudio DP-1FX/CD When I turn it on I get this message. Err: 12 Please PWR OFF


This is basically an error message which indicates that the Tascam timed out while waiting for the drive to spin up. Usually an issue with the drive motor not getting the correct amount of power.

Primary suspect is usually the power adapter.

Tascam DP01 wont get past please wait screen


Usually an indication of bad sectors on the hard drive. This can be caused by bumping the unit when it is running, excessive vibration, a power failure while it is on, improper shutdown, or expoure to a strong magnetic field like having a subwoofer too close or an intermittent faulty power supply.

Your options are to return the unit (if it is still under warranty), or if not to open up the DP-01, remove the hard drive, connect it to a PC and perform a low level format (or take the drive to your nearest PC repair shop and have them reformat it).

Unfortunately you'll lose any data that wasn't backed up, but this should bring back your DP-01.

Maybe you could remove the hard drive and install it in a computer or laptop and then use the computer to format the hard drive.
But this would totally erase the hdd and then you would have to re-install the operating system.
I believe the recovery disk that comes with the unit would re-install the OS, but I'm not sure.
Maybe contact Yamaha and ask them if this method would work.
I hope this helps you.
