Tascam 22-2 no sound

I was given a Tascam 22-2 and some reels to evaluate. I threaded the reel, it appears to feed and uptake correctly. But there is no sound, does this machine require external speakers? I have tried changing settings in different combinations.

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?

Try taking direct feeds from your 8 mic channels by connecting leads from the insert jacks to the inputs of the recorder. In order to not interrupt the signal path on the mixer channel push the jack all the way in and then pull out gently until you feel it click. Then you should get a direct signal going to the Tascam and still have control over the level via the fader.

Here is the only solution:
CODE C:31:22 Symptom/State T reel fault
CODE C:31:22 Symptom/State S reel fault

Correction: Load the tape again, and perform operations from the beginning.

Trying different brands of DV stock does not solve your problem. If this problem continues you could have a tension problem. Replacement of the S & T reel tables will solve your problem.

Need capstan belt for reel to reel -tascam-dx-44,pls help.

The model is not a DX44 as that is a dBx unit attached to either a Tascam 44 or 40-4. The tape deck model would need to be determined and when that is done go to Marrs Communications and order the belt kit for that machine and you will get the capstan and counter belt.

How do I thread the tape on an Akai GX210D reel to reel tape deck?

When facing the deck, the feed reel goes on the left and the take-up reel goes on the right. Make sure to secure each reel by engaging the reel locks on each of the spindles. Place the feed reel with the free end of the tape on the left and hanging downwards (like the letter "P"). Pass the tape to the right of the tension spindle (which is above and to the left of the play/record heads unit. Pull the tape down and pass it underneath the heads from left to right. Then on the right hand side of the heads unit pass the tape between the guide wheel and the first guide spindle to its left and just above. Then pass the tape over the top of the second guide spindle. Finally, loop the tape under the right hand tension spindle and pull it up and feed onto the take-up reel from the right in an anticlockwise direction (like the letter "g"). Once you have it through the slot in the centre of the reel, hold the tape end there with your finger and wind the reel around a few times to hold the tape in place and ... Voila!
