    Tascam TSR-8 no signal on one channel

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I am looking for some advice:

    Channel 5 was good, but now all of a sudden has no sound. When I feed a signal to the input and hit the button for channel 5 or activate the all input button there is no LED coming on and no signal on the channelĎs output.
    I swapped the board with another channel and I get the same issue on channel 5 and the other channel remains ok.
    If I keep the signal fed and switch off the machine I briefly hear the signal and see the LEDs of channel 5.

    Anyone here with a good hint?

    From the description I'd suspect a problem with the channel 5 input socket, or the connection between it an the rest of the deck.

    Might be an idea to record a signal on all channels on a spare piece of tape and then flip the reels over and play it backwards. See if you get output on channel 5 then, if it's popping during power-up I would assume so but it might be worth checking.

    Good idea. I have another tape with all 8 tracks recorded and I will play it both directions tomorrow to check.
    The signal path from the socket to the channel board though is good.
