Hi,
I was referred to by another member. I have Tascam 38, how to do know if it's still good or needs to replaced, or if possible repaired. When the tension arm is engaged it starts up, but when playing it starts to slow down after awhile and then stops. F505 &F506 fuses keep blowing.
Let me know what you think.
Thx
