This is a four track tape recorder used for home recording. The problem: the tape advances normally but there is no output (through both rca and headphone outputs) other than a hiss that varies when the volume and pan knobs are adjusted.
This reply is *very* late, but might help someone with the same problem.
My Tascam MF P01 also would not play back on any of the channels but would record. The problem was on the lower board, capacitors C105, C205, C305 and C405, all are 220uF, rated at 10V - on a 9V machine... which meant all four eventually degraded and let DC through to the next op-amp.
I replaced all four capacitors with replacements rated at 25V ... and it now works again.
Hi sounds like a worng channel or no output from something check the tape output's for anything if there is sound but bad or low then the tape is the problem if it's good then check that the cable connection is good (connect it to a reciver) then if all is good till the unit: check that you are listening to the right channel check that your output device is good (headphones,speakers) (connect it to a reciver) good luck
