Question about Tascam Audio Players & Recorders
Hey everyone, I just bought a 488 Tascam. Everything seems to be working except, when I record the audio to tape, I only hear a very low volume of the recording. It's blinking in EQ at ch 1-2 even with +6 db so it looks like it works and should be loud. Just not sure I'm doing something wrong regarding getting the tape to send some output from the tape, output is fine from the mixer itself. The small volume there is comes from when I press CUE in the monitor section, can't get any sounds from main out to speakers. Any idea? Im sure im just overlooking something :/
Have you tried playing the tape in another device? Adjusting the recording volume if that is an option? Look for the user manual pdf online and also try a brand new or different brand tape to ensure that is not the problem.

adjust your top knob which is called the gain, this will allow the incoming signal to be muchlouder depending on where you set it , the bottom fader is for playback volume and mixing and you should also a avolume control for your head set , follow also the recording instructions in your manual for optimal settings , there,s no reason that your recordings should come out with low volume other then your gain control being set to low , hope i was able to help , if i was please leave a nice rating ,sincerely glenn mayer

This reply is *very* late, but might help someone with the same problem.
My Tascam MF P01 also would not play back on any of the channels but would record. The problem was on the lower board, capacitors C105, C205, C305 and C405, all are 220uF, rated at 10V - on a 9V machine... which meant all four eventually degraded and let DC through to the next op-amp.
I replaced all four capacitors with replacements rated at 25V ... and it now works again.

The front speakers are the base against which you adjust everything else.
Adjust the front rear balance for 0dB.
Readjust the rest of the speakers using the test tones. Normal audio may not have a lot going on back there.
