You need to take out the hdd from the unit and reformat it in a computer. then reinstall in the dp-01 this should take care of the problem.

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.

Hi i have a Tascam DP01FX which is showing error code 4 ,can you tell me if i can fix this problem and if i have lost all my work please cheers paul

The hard drive needs to be reinitialized - this will lose anything recorded on it.

With the unit off, hold down Track Edit and Shut Down at the same time while turning on the unit. It will ask "Are you sure?" press enter if you are willing to lose everything on the recorder. Continue through the rest of the prompts.

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.

My dp01wth cd recorder says no more disc space when trying to rec

You may wish to first verify that you have indeed erased those songs (by choosing 'erase' in the 'song' menu - see page 18 in your manual) and not simply cleared out the fat partition. You cannot erase songs on the DP-01 from your computer, you can only do this in the DP-01 menus.

If you erase all the songs from a disk partitian the DP-01 is supposed to automatically create a new blank song. So the partition or the hard disk could have become corrupt because you say you aren't seeing any song there.

If you haven't already, you could try selecting another partition to be the active one (press 'menu', select the 'disk' menu, choose 'partition' and press the > arrow key. Move the arrow symbol to the partition you want to make active and press enter - see page 36 in the manual) to see if another partition works any better.

If the newly selected partition does work, but the original one didn't you might have to reformat the old partition. Re-select it as above, and follow the instructions to reformat a partition on page 37 in the manual).

If the newly selected partition doesn't work either, then your hard disk might be corrupted. At this point you could try a disk reformat (page 36 of the manual) during which you'll have to set the partition sizes. The disk format instrcution of page 36 will walk you through that too,

Hopefully it's just something simple and you won't have to get into formatting anything.

Good luck with it.

Memory poor

This is an error in Tascam's code that usually means 'out of disk space'. Try using 'delete unused' to free up some space first within the song you're on and after that you might consider backing up some songs to your PC and then deleting them from the DP-01 to free up more disk space.

Hope this helps.

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.

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.

Yamaha AW16G

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.

Here's a link to a forum where someone else encountered the same error. Seems it was due to running out of disc space in that instance.

Tascam dp-01fx system 50 error

what the above guest said is exactly what you need to do. Make sure of course there is nothing on your FAT(previously exported songs/masters) because they will be erased. just go to menu->disk->fat reform, then press enter
