Where can I get tapes for a tascam da -30 mk2 and what are the tapes sizes?


You need what are called "DAT TAPES". Just like Blank analogue audio cassettes they come in a range of lengths fro 15min to 180min. You'd be better off to use something like a 60 or 90min IMHO. Dat tapes can be purchased from places like "studio spares" or any other PRO media supplier. They can be quite pricey. I tend to buy mine in bulk on ebay.
Before you ask, not there are not different tapes for different machines, but the btands do vary. I use either HHB or AMPEX. DO NOT USE COMEPUTER DATA BACK UP CARTRIDGES as a cheap alternataive.....they are different and end up giving you a lot of loss and errors over the years...sometimes instantly (Tale it from experience!)

TASCAM DA-30 tape transport error


When you use any cleaner or lubricant it must be only for the moving part and must never stray into the transport section. Also what is required if there is any frictio is to dry wipe and set. Now when you lubricant got sprread into the head, the oil will act as a great adhesive at higher speed and got the tape entagled. So please wipe dry all the oil of the headd and do nto damage the head with the wipe touching the delicate ferrite heads in the slot, DO NOT TOUCH THIS SECTION but with an even paper with soft brushes. Now check you reel drive and see if there is dirrt lodged in clean and reset., put the set on for regaining lost values as many electronics capacitors may have lost value by drying. If the tape up does not move it is a mechanical problem and you must check for the drive and the friction wheel. If however the reel works and the count does not happen and you get the error , then your reel sensor is faulty. Check these points and confirm, Hope this advice helps, Good day.

I am having problems with my Tascam Da-88 8


Maybe you could just clean the heads. If anything visible comes off they're TOO dirty. Or or look at it yourself with a strong light source and see the wear by evaluating reflections from the head surface.

Needs a new head


It is not a simple swap, head assembly is not cheap ether. Plus all adjustments envelop, rec current, rec EQ, rec level etc. It is a job for well trained professional.

The red error light keeps coming on, with accompanying unpleasant noises on the track. I've been using a da-88 cleaner tape to temporarily fix the problem, but am afraid i'm using the cleaner too often


The cleaner tape is only supposed to be used after 50 hrs of record /play time , if you are using your cleaner tape alot , you are damaging the helical scanning head and wearing out it,s sensitivity ,
Users have found out that the cleaning tape is like sandpaper made to remove metal particles left behind everytime you run your high 8 tapes , The best way is to send it in to a authorized tascan repair shop in your area , don,t worry there,s always some shops that can be found in your area , they will do a bench test for around 45-50 bucks and tell you what if anything it will cost to fix your problem ! if it turns out to be a dirty helical scanning head they will clen that with 100% alcohol and test it , that they can do usually for the price of the bench test since they do have to remove the cover to see whats going on under the hood! , well the red error light on my machine does come on sometimes when my 2 machines are out of sync, but with shutting the unit down and starting it back up usually takes care of that issue...by the way how often do you use the cleaner?..most da-88 users are totally affraid of even using them !, good luck and if you have any more questions please feel free to email me> glenn
