Question about Tascam Audio Players & Recorders
My tascam Da 40 Dat machine is giving the errormsg mecha. com. er. what can i do to reset or fix.
SOURCE: hello i have a tascam
Since there is movement in the meters, the heads are good. Look first for any cables or connectors that are loose. There is an "output" section in these that can fail. I don't recall whether this section is an IC or discrete components though. Check the cables and connectors and update this with what you find. I'll look up this model and find the output parts.

Common problem with these decks-the capstan motor needs to be replaced- A DIY job if you are careful and have some mechanical common sense- Tascam still sells these motors, around $100

On the top of the cassette mechanism there are two micro switches on one small plate with 3 wires. These switches "tells" the electronics where the door is open or close & activate the rest of loading mechanism (second motor). If only one of the switches is not working, you will get this error (that's was my problem). The switch who is responsible for closing was broken. I replace the switch and everything is working fine and smoothly now.
