Question about Tascam DA-30MKII

1 Answer

Error 02 I've attempted to clean the head; capstan; the entire tape track; Still get the error 02 code after awhile. It does reset after turning the machine on and off, but when you listen to the machine as you jog between functions, such as "stop" fast forwward" etc. it sounds "sluggish" Thought the cleaning would help but obviously missed something. On a chat room sight the general inpression was that the machine "isn't worth the effort". However, up until recently I've had no problems and has given me good recordings.

Error 02 = Error in Reel/Capstan Motors. One,or more, of your motors is going......You can pick 'em up cheap on the auction lists(whole decks,not motors).

Where is the tracking on this VCR toshiba w403?


On this unit there is no manual tracking button - it's done automatically by a special circuit that uses the special signal from the tracks themselves. If the tracking is bad then the heads are dirty and they don't pick that special signal.
Clean them with a special cleaning tape. If you can't source one the unit will have to be dismantled and the 4 heads will have to be manually cleaned with a q-tip moist with alcohol.

SONY uvw 1800 Error Code 02-454


The unit powers on, the drum shows only 0005 hours on it, but the display says it has an "Error 02-454" Error Code, and says "REC Inhibit", and it will not accept a tape. When this unit is powered on it shows error code 02-454 which is:
S-REEL FG COULD NOT BE DETECTED WHILE IN FF/REW MODE.
You can cross-reference this error code at the following web site:
http://www.johnjvsvisual.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/UVW1600-1800%20error%20codes.pdf
From what I’ve been told this is a very easy fix for someone that knows how to work on these. It is a very clean machine, inside and out, and I am sure it is well worth getting serviced and put back in use

clean all brown oxide off capstan roller with 70% alcohol and Q-tip. Its the skinny silver axle that the rubber roller comes into contact with when the tape loads. This is what pulls the tape through the transport. also clean heads with head cleaner tape. If your head is dirty, the tape will wrap itself around the drum and cause a transport error.

Error code 02-694


The probem as told on another site (sorry, can't remember to give proper credit) is that the pinch roller is not making contact with the capstan. THis is exacly what happened to my 1800 after sitting for a long time with no use. THe solution was to manually excersize the lever going to the solenoid to unstick the mechanism. Then, voila, pinch roller pinches, tape moves, UVW1800 happy again.

Tracking


Hi,

3 possible reasons:
1. Your video head needs cleaning;
2. The pinch roller is no longer making full contact with the entire tape width; or
3. Your capstan motor is running out of standard speed.

Corrective procedures would call for:
A. Clean the video head with a tape head cleaner;
B. Clean, re-align or replace the pinch roller; or
C. Re-calibrate the capstan speed. In some models, there are 2 adjusting trimpots for SP, LP and SLP speeds. This procedure would call for a special tachometer and/or an alignment tape. In the absence, you perhaps can try winging it (adjust till you are satisfied and no picture roll). To determine which are the trimpots, you need a service manual or at least a schematic/parts placement diagram. Further you need to be familiar with electronic components and circuitry as well as use of a DVM. of course this would involve running/diagnosing/adjusting with the case/cover open and the unit plug in to the mains and running. This would also call for extreme care working with live units.

Should you not be comfortable doing a DIY, perhaps your best option would be to seek the services of a qualified VCR technician.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
