Question about Fostex Mr16hd 16 Track Digital Recorder
They make headphone amps that will take a line level and boost it in volume until it can drive headphones. I'd get one of those, and plug it into any available "line out" or "rec out" on the back of your Fostex. Sounds like the D/A converter section that feeds the headphone output has gone bad, and my solution will get you around that.

If you can reformat the drive after dumping out anything you want saved MIGHT fix the problem...
The unit MAY not be able to tolerate fragmenting when you delete a snippet here and there... It may require large blocks of contiguous space.

Testimonial: "thanks mate, that was it"
Step one- download the open source program Audacity. http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/?source=directory
Get an 1/8 inch stereo jack to stereo RCA outputs (some digital cameras with vieo capability have these cords.)
Plug your tape deck "Line Out" to the "microphone" input of your sound card if it does not have a "Line level Input." You will have to adjust the microphone level once you enable it in the microsoft windows audio settings accessible through the control panel file.
If you are using a mac, you will have to open the CDEV to set it up.
Then it is simply a matter of getting used to using the program, which does not take too long. Just remember to save either each tape side or each song as it's own project.
All open audio files in the display will play simulataneously, which is why you want to close them and start new.
If you need other tweeking types of programs to reduce hiss or potentially disk pops, there are some offerings also at sourceforge http://sourceforge.net They cater to Windows, linux and Mac.
The sampling rate you choose- if not variable- will affect sound quality and file size.

Power supply. Most likely an electrolytic is failing. It may or may not show any signs of it. Other possibilities are bad solder connections, loose wire connections, or possibly a bad MOSFET if it uses a switchmode power supply. Also check the general construction to make sure nothing is shorting internally. Sometimes wires get pinched.
