Sam,


I bought a service manual for my Tascam 42NB (A TASCAM 42 manual is the same) from a recommended source and when I went to use it, Lo and Behold the important schematics are not there.

This manual is missing pages 8-43, 8-44, 8-45 and 8-46

I don't know if the manual is incomplete that I bought, or if that's the way it came from the factory.

Can you check your manual to see if they are included?

After talking to several people, their manual is missing the same pages. Apparently we bough them from the same guy.. .

I need a pdf manual asap.... especially one that is complete and has been scanned nicely with good detail.

Thanks

Perry

I looked on hifiengine and only found the 40 series brochure...there are a couple requests for the owners/service manuals over the last year so, will a 42B do?

I found one but it's not cheap http://www.gennlab.com/tasc42b.html

She's heading to Minnesota on Thursday to watch the grand baby and her mom is having surgery so she'll be gone Thursday morning. I'll have 5 weeks to figure it out. Those monsters are impossible to hide Joe. Besides, that's a lot to spend on a chick aint it?????

The games we play. I've had a new covertly bought amp right in the living room for six weeks now. I put a piece of cardboard in front of the stand to ' help keep dog hair off'. Wifey's memory is worse than mine ( except for every mistake I've ever made). By now she's forgot what the old amp looked like for sure.
My UPS driver is a friend & I meet him in town to get my shit on the sly.

Have you ever see the prices this one outfit charges for audiophile 1:1 recordings? The Tape Project or something? 5-600 bucks???

Or pirate radio, internet, whatever. All my station tapes are country IIRC.

Well, my new Tascam 42NB ships tomorrow. Can't wait to get my hands on it. I think I may have a local here to buy the one I have been tweaking up and fixing. He thought he was the man after getting a nice Teac 4010 and then he saw my Tascam.... I got the output pot that was roached (it still worked but was bent a hair) and the knobs were scuffed up but I snagged a very Nice set a few days ago so it's almost done. I had to clean the connectors and touch up a couple solder joints and it sounds excellent. Then I can quit worrying about trying to hide a 70lb Deck from the ol lady. I hate to get rid of it and I still may keep it. We'll see when he comes over to get the new black face plate on his 4000t I built him (And a WOPL, and a C-1, and a pair of Epicure 20+ speakers and.....) He's got money.....
