lost tracks


New member
we have been recording using a TASCAM 07 for a few months and have lost the ability to record or playback track 1. is this the result of poor maintenance or something more serious?
Is this loss just related to the tape source?
Is the signal coming in on Mic/Line 1 still
getting to the L or R bus? If so, it sounds like your tape head alignment got whacked.
One scenario to explain such misalignment would be an attempt to force a tape into the unit while the record function was selected.
But it's not the only explanation.
