Have just purchased 2 x Tascam DA 88s second hand and both are showing warning light with s error 68 code - both have taken tapes and refuse to eject
Help please!
Hello, my name is Rusty. That sounds like a belt/pinch roller problem. Error 68 simply means that there is a problem with the playback mechanism.
When you press play with no tape inserted, does anything move? How about the pinch roller and capstan?

Thanks Rusty managed to sort it myself - turned out to be condensation on the drum - left it switched on for a couple of hours and it's ok now
That's great news Dave, let me know if it gives you any more trouble.
