Hello. My name is Michae. I can help you with your question.

I don't think you are in danger of causing permanent damage. Can you please press and hold the exit key for a few seconds and then let me know if the same error returns?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Thanks for reply, but this has no effect at all. Still shows "system error code 01".

Tascam 2488 mki problem: I have removed offending module (hgr 2488) & my recorder still shows the same fault (system error, code 01). Looks like I've damaged the recorder.!

Tascam 2488 problem: Hi, I'm afraid it's taking too long to get an answer to this, so I am just putting it into my local shop for repair. "press & hold exit button" being the only suggestion so far received, I'm afraid it's not satisfactory for my needs, I need this machine up & running. It's a pity you could'nt help at all, but it is pretty specialised equipt. A. Murray.
