    Digit Counter Tascam 38

    Hello! The digit counter of my good old tascam 38 is suddenly dark with a white spot in the corner inside of the glass. Transport control with the remote is possible but in all modes the capstan motor does not turn at all, only easy by hand at the flywheel or capstan itself. Without a tape in play mode the left reel table drives clockwise.. fast forward and rewind is working.
    All other modes for record-input-sync look normal, all the beautiful VU meters light on. Is this all because of the dead digit counter? or could the machine be used without the counter when the capstan motor has hopefully power again? thanks for help and happy recording.
