Tascam MF-P01 recorder - hearing nothing during play back

I can't hear anything when I play it back after recording. I can hear it if I put it into my stereo cassette player.

Mine 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! All four went leaky, which meant that the op-amps each were connected to got a bias which drove the output to 8.5V and no output.
I replaced all four capacitors with new ones rated at 25V and it works again!

    2 years before I selled this Portastudio. No playback, but I could record and play on another tapedeck. Than 2 years was gone, and now I had 2 free hours for search and repair this failure. I changed these capacitors on the lower board, and - as if by a miracle - playback function works! Thanks c_k_denyer, thanks god that I found this website!

    Thanks a lot! This repair worked for my tascam porta 02 mkII as well. The output of my opamps were also reading about 8.5V. The capacitors had different reference numbers (sorry forgot to write them down) but they were also 220uF and only rated 10V. It seemed only a couple of mine were leaky (one showed less than a volt across it) but replacing all of them definitely didn't hurt.

    Just curious, were the capacitors visibly leaky before you replaced them? I'm having the same playback issue but my capactiors don't look shot.

How to record with Multi-effects feature on Tascam DP 01


I'm not familiar with the Tascam DP-01 but many multi-track recorders don't commit effects to the track until the mixdown phase. The thinking being that you cannot eliminate a "bad choice" effect once it's down to tape (old school term) and so they allow adding the audio tweaks at the final stages of recording. Here they hope you can appreciate the entire mix and then decide what sweetners to add.

Just got a Tascam DP-01 and plug my keyboard into input A and assigned it. I clicked the record button for track one . I can hear the output in the headphones and the meter is showing on the Tascam, but...


If the track can be armed for recording, it won't show anything until you arm that track. Otherwise, check to see if you can hear anything on the main output. If so, then it's just the lights, which will not affect functionality.


Hope that helps!

Having problems recording and playing back tascam dc-02 cf


I'm assuming you are plugging the left and right outputs from the karaoke machine into input A and B of the Tascam to record the stereo output of the Karioke. The Tascam works with mono only (you recreate the stereo mix at mixdown or when bouncing mono tracks together with the panning set). Therefore you should be assigning inputs A and B separately. You could press assign A and then the record button above track 1 and then press assign B and the record button above track 2. Then arm tracks 1 and 2 (by pressing record above each). When you then press play and record together you'll record input A onto track 1 and input B onto track 2.

Hope this helps.

Hi

I have found Tascam to be an excellent provider of service and spares over the years. Parts can be purchased through a Tascam Authorised Service center. Or you can generally deal direct with them if you are repair guy. You can find one near to you at this site. . Enter your state if you are in the USA, or select the region you are in at the top of the web page where it says global, and away you go. If you have any problems sorting it out, feel free to get back to me and I will help you as best I can. A FixYa is a great reward for helping you to source your part. Cheers

No sound in playback (but can hear click track)


This might seem simple, but just to check: you have switched off the monitor on the track when you go to playback? With track monitor engaged, you will not hear playback, but will continue to hear the live monitor.
