Is there a hard factory reset for the Tascam DP-24SD? Mine powers on but the source and record lights are not working right.

Hi, yes there is. I saw that using the menu presences to find the initialize option and activate it is the way to run a factory reset on your machine. So, you can start with this first. Otherwise, please reference the manual. Thank you.

Why does my tascam keeps shutting off on me?

Is it using a switching power supply cube? They often time get defectiveand are unreliable. Sound like a power supply problem either way.

Tascam 122MKII - press play no sound, meters don't move

Look for small leaver or any contact switches. They might have become bent out of shape or broken, or have dirt in them, cutting off the sound. Also check the leads coming from the head, they might have become detached or at least you can trace where they join the PC board. If you touch where they join you should get a buzz on either channel.

Recording Speed

the tascam 414 is a 4 track recording studio which uses standard cassette tapes- meaning they only play in one direction, because the tape is full. The 414 records at double speed so that recording fidelity is increased. When you have made a recording you want to mix you then dub your recording though the outputs into another standard tape recorder or whatever you have available, be it a cd recorder or your PC. So, when you listened to your recording on a standard tape player, you were not only hearing it at half speed but you were only listening to 2 of the 4 tracks. The other tracks would only be heard if you flipped the tape over, and they would be heard running backward. I would have though the 414 had a swich to allow it to also record at standard speed to but I guest it does not.

Does the 2488 neo have a battery in it?

Page 3 of the manual says it does. Batteries (battery pack or batteries installed) should not be exposed to excessive heat such as sunshine, fire or the like. https://tascam.com/downloads/tascam/4/E_2488neo_web.pdf The unit is discontinued which is never a good sign. https://tascam.com/us/product/2488neo/feature .

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.

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.

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.

Trying to record but when I push the "record"

Get the manual...

http://tascam.com/product/cd-rw750/downloads/

Record READY switches the unit into a Monitor mode so you can set your levels for when you finally initiate recording.
