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.
Good luck!

My TASCAM DA-20 Mk II DAT doesn't play back any of my tapes. It still appears to record OK, but there is no level meter or sound or track finding when playing back, though the tape seems to be run


Hi Julian,
There is a lot that can go wrong with these miniature helical scan systems. When I had units like that I packed them off to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service and they were restored. I am not sure about parts like drums at this point but Russ is your best chance to get it working again. He has corrected CDRW and DAT as well as just about anything Tascam makes and he even fixed some Sony units too. I know him as the counterpart to the Chicago Factory Service facility when it was open. He was the Manager in New Jersey then.

Hi, My TASCAM DA-20 mkII DAT recorder is holding onto a tape. It will play the tape and there are no error messages, but the tape will not eject. How do I get the tape out without breaking the DAT...


A Technician usually has to get a tape out of a machine when this happens. In radio when I was Chief Engineer for several stations in Chicago I would send my defective decks to Russ at New Jersey Factory Service in Emerson NJ. He knows how to fix these units.

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.

May 31, 2010 | Tascam HHB DA30 Tape for DA-88

1 Answer

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

Tascam DA 40 DAT Machine ." Loading error "


The DAT machine needs new belts and maybe some cleaning. These fail all the time due to old belts that lose the tension that is required.

Error 01


Error code 01:
what to do:
open the tray, power down the unit, remove the top cover, remove the transport
(4 screws and a few conectors... I think there's a long 'transport load spring' also...)
then turn the transport over.
Looking at the bottom of the transport, there's a small, -no, make that tiny- black rubber drive belt
which goed from a very small pulley to a rather larger pulley directly next to it...
That's the one. Buy more than one replacement (they're only a buck or two) and put a new one on.
-then take the spare, and place it in a baggie and tape the baggie up inside the lid of the DA-30MkII...
Put some sort of friendly note in there for the next time the new owner of the machine needs to replace the belt.
