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).

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.

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.

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.

Tascam 488 mk II recording problems


Have you taken a look at the edge of the tape? tracks 1 and 2 on a cassette are usually next to the edge and you may have a bad batch of tapes that have the edge damaged. Another possible but not a likley problem might be the tape is out of spec. for the width, and your heads MAY have a little wear from use, and are trying to act like tape guides. If the tape is slightly wider than the grove worn in the head, the tape would be lifted at the edge and not make contact to the head. It is not electronic as you have diagnosed this with other tapes. Give it a try and see!
