    I had exactly the same problem too. I haven't used it for about 5-6 months, turned it on, it was clearly getting power but nothing happened. So I tried it a few times and still no joy... so in the end I turned it on and just left it for about 30 minutes. Eventually, it did come back on and all the old songs were still on the hard drive.

Before actually addressing the issue I need to know if you are sure that the unit is getting power. You may just have a power cord issue.

2488 will not boot up, says not reading the hdd check the h/w .


Usually this is a problem with the Hard Drive not getting enough power to spin up properly. The AC power adapter is the usual suspect.

Boot Problem in TASCAM 2488


Turning the power off with out going through the shut-down process will sometimes trash the hard drive making it un readable. To force format of hard drive hold down the shut down, send, shift and quick routing keys at the same time then turn power on. This will format the HD. When finished the display will show "Factory initalize complete" "please power off" NOTE you will lose every thing on the HD including the demo song.

Repartition and format the hard drive. There are specific instructions elsewhere on the Internet. I did this about six months ago. I believe my problem came about after I stored my 2488 on top of my monitors - I believe the exposure to the magnetic fields corrupted the boot partition on the drive.

TASCAM 2488 won't boot up..HELP!


reseat the HDD cables, just unplug them and blow on them to remove any dust or anything on the cables and the connectors and plug them back in, but first make sure it is unplugged from the socket and once it is press the power button to let all the power out of it so you don't shock yourself , i hope I was helpful and it solves your issue
