I've seen intermittent buttons (especially transport) reported occassionally with the most common suggestion to remedy the situation being to first press down the button rather firmly and rotate it around in little circles. This may help for a while. The real solution is probably to remove the cover and inspect the button from underneath for wear and/or built-up dust or dirt and clean/replace accordingly.

If your 2488 is still under warranty or you aren't comfortable opening the cover yourself, you can search for a Tascam Service Center in your area here:

If you do decide to open up the box yourself the service center near you may be able to sell you parts.

hi, sometimes even when the play back function is working you wont be able to see it due to the DISP button. canon has one disp button in lower right hand corner. when you are in play back mode, press the disp button three times. at any one point you must be able to see the photos. else revert back to us. thank you dewan

Cannot operate svr-925 digital recorder, need manual


How to Record:
1. Make sure HOLD switch (on side of unit with pocket clip) is set to off position (slide to right is off - to left would be hold)
2. For best results set unit with mic(rophone) which is on top of unit toward sound source and press REC/STOP button (Top button on front of unit just below LCD display). Recording will begin and will be indicated on LCD display.
> Red Record LED will be on and the message number, recording time will be displayed on the LCD.
3. To stop recording, press REC/STOP button one time.
* If no other buttons are pressed within 1 minute at stop position, it will power off automatically.
4. Pause during recording by simply pressing MODE/PAUSE button- press button again to resume.

There is a Voice Operated System (VOS) Recording button on left side also. You can record with voice activation to conserve recording space but I have found that you lose a portion of the recorded sound as it activates and if there is no sound for a very few minutes the unit powers off and you will get nothing further recorded. I recomend just keeping VOS in off position.

5. To erase a recording: Select the message number you want to erase and while it is stopped (the message number will appear in LCD with the length of recording showing also)
Press and hold the ERASE button until the LCD begins blinking "ERASE" then, while it's blinking simply press the erase button again and the recording will be erased.

6. To play back a recorded message find your message by "toggling" the switch on the right side of the unit that says INDEX. That switch is the fast forward/reverse play etc. To Play simply push the switch in. This button/switch takes a little practice to use but the Play portion is straight forward. Use the front buttons to pause and stop during playback.

Hope this helps.

Not able to play back on the DVR


The ssc duel records with a time signature that allows you to go back to a specific time to view the information on the harddrive. on the front of the dvr there are three buttons and the large round multi button. If you have the unit with vhs backup, then you just press the center small button on the front pannel and you'll get the menu that either allows you to select a time group to watch, or put in the time you want the playback to start. after you start the playback, then you can control the playback with the controls on the large multi function button. If your trying to play back the VHS tape, GOOD LUCK!!!!.....If you have the newer model without the vhs backup...then you have to press the stop button on the large multi function button...andthen press the center small button and then the other small button to the right...then you should be at the menu to play back the video either by selected time/date..or by half hour increments....good luck!!!

then go to REGISTRY HACKS> then you should see there the choices for BUTTON ASSIGN, ACTIVATE WMA PLAYBACK, and ACTIVATE FLASH PLAYER...just press X over ACTIVATE WMA PLAYBACK (it should be highlighted in RED) then you're done! Hope this helps!

Cassette playback


Hi, I am brand new to this site. So I may not be very good. However your prob sounds like one I had a few years back. I solved mine by using two pencils, one in each hub.
Then winding manually from one to the other. This is quite time consuming, but it worked for me. Hope this helps, if not, sorry for wasting your time.

The Play button controls speed of play back. If you hold the button two long it changes the speed. Press Play and then release and press again until the speed you are looking for is obtained. Be careful not to push the play button mulitple times once it is correct.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

Sony Camcorder playback problem


mechanical alignment! try to record for a minute and playback the result on another player/recorder, not on your camera, if the playback is not okay then your camera needs alignment, you need pro fix. You said that you've done manual cleaning already, maybe you dis aligned the mechanical parts accidentally, applying too much force on the mechanical parts of your small unit tends to bend, dislocate or move these parts out of alignment. defective videohead will never playback good video, and you said that it seems to correct only a few minutes of playback.
