I have a Tascam 488 mk II that will rewind and fast forward, but will not Play or record. Does anyone know a solution to fix this problem?

Check too make sure that the tabs on the cassette itself are there if they are gone place a piece of tape over them, then try recording again. It may be a belt issue open the unit and see if all the belts are present cassettes usually have 2 or 3 separate belts one controlling the fast forward and rewind and another for record and play more than likely this is the issue, If so belts for these units are obsolete try searching science and surplus magazine catalog they carry a variety of large rubber band / belts you may get lucky and find one there good luck I hope this helps you

I have a tascam dp-01 that stopped working.can i put the hard drive disc into another dp-01 without losing my songs?

It should work I would think as it uses the same OS. I suspect the hdd has issues it the system doesn't complete its boot.

I have a Tascam 688 mini studio, its 8 tracks on a cassette tape, I have just replaced the capstan belt and now the tape speed is way too fast even when I'm in variable mode with the speed turned all

It is possible the control transistor in the capstan motor has shorted due to age. There is a control in the deck for calibration of speed but then you need equipment and a MXT111 test tape to set the speed. So you may need a new Capstan motor or maybe just an adjustment- hard to say exactly without me looking at it- yes, I still fix them. I have been doing them for about 45 years and I worked at Teac as a Lead Tech in Arlington Heights IL.

Hi i got a tascam 414 porta studio and the record button physically wont press down, but all others do!

Hello Rick, to be able to activate the recording button, you must have placed a cassette, that has the lock to record, this is in the upper part of the cassette and has one for each side, in your case it will have to have the corresponding to the on the side that you use to record Looking at the cassette in front, with the tape down, the lock is up on the left, if you do not have it, you can replace it with a Scotch tape covering the hole I hope my comment will serve you Greetings Franco Dosil Hola Rick, para poder accionar el boton de grabacion, debes tener colocado un cassette, que tenga la traba para grabar, esta se encuentra en la parte superior del cassette y tiene una para cada lado, en tu caso tendra que tener la correspondiente a la del lado que usas para grabar mirando el cassette de frente, con la cinta para abajo la traba esta arriba a la izquierda, si no la tuviera, la puedes reemplazar con una cinta Scotch cubriendo el agujero Espero que te sirva mi comentario Saludos Franco Dosil https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/05/Cassette_Write_Protect_IV.jpg/220px-Cassette_Write_Protect_IV.jpg

Went to turn on my Tascam 302, all it does is buzz. If I press a button it looks like it says "err 1". Anyone know what the problem is?

Hello Ken, I was looking in the manuals of Tascam 302 and it does not refer to "ERR 1", it appears "ERR 2" and "ERR 3" From what you describe, you may have a power supply problem in the low signal area, or have some of the mechanisms out of point, so you can see that the axes are turning If you have technical features, try disconnecting the multipin cable that feeds the mechanics and check if the noise continues, if it does not appear, go reconnecting each mechanism separately and looking for which generates the problem, could be both, at that point I suggest, consult to a specialized technical service I hope my comment has served you Greetings Franco Dosil Hola Ken, estuve buscando en los manuales de Tascam 302 y no hace referencia a "ERR 1", aparece "ERR 2" y "ERR 3" Por lo que describes puede ser que tengas un problema de fuente de alimentaci?n de la zona de baja se?al, o tengas alguno de los mecanismos fuera de punto, por eso observas que est?n girando los ejes capstan Si tienes conocimientos t?cnicos, prueba desconectando el cable multipin que alimenta las mec?nicas y verifica si continua el ruido, si no aparece , ve re conectando cada mecanismo por separado y buscando cual genera el problema, podr?an ser los dos, en ese punto te sugiero, consulta a un servicio t?cnico especializado Espero te haya servido mi comentario Saludos Franco Dosil
