X-48 Tascam Host not responding

Hi,

I have a X-48 Tascam
There was an electricity problem this week and I get this error:
Host not responding

I've searched on the web and in the manual and I can't find anything.

Anybody got an idea?

Thanks!

I have 11 X-48s & 4 of them have done this. I've sent 2 back to Tascam for repairs & I'm waiting for an RMA for the others.It's a real problem

Thought I'd bring this up again as I seem to be having the same problem. 1 out of 40 or 50 times it will boot up. otherwise, even the DVD drive is locked out.

Megaeffect- Did you get any idea what was happening with yours?

I to had the same problem, fixed it by replacing the battery on the motherboard.

I tried changing the battery with no luck. Sent the unit into Tascam. They re-capped the motherboard for $280 and it works great. I was surprised at the 2-1/2 week turnaround.

Yup, replaced the battery and the "startup" voltage for the front panel trigger was high enough to trigger the M/B to fire up.

Strange little bit of circuitry going on there.....

I had a unit with the same error. Upon inspecting the unit it appeared that the motherboard would not boot. I checked the capacitors and found two to be bad. This unit had barely any use so I suspect this is a weakness with the motherboard. I am sending the unit in to be repaired.

What kind of battery and where is a good resource. Are they fairly generic motherboard batteries?

Just happened over here....

Greetings X-48-ers:
After sitting safely, warm and dry in its flight case for about five months, mine did the same thing. The unit is barely two years old, so there's NO EXCUSE for a capacitor problem! When I called Tascam tech support, and suggested the battery issue, the fellow intoned that it was "a repair issue", muttering something about capacitors under his breath.

The reason I tried to fire it up at all was because I'd just gone through the same battery deal with my client's RADAR. Got to keep the beasts plugged in to charge the backup battery (also true with my Studer A810!).

If this turns out to be a capacitor issue (unit is conveniently out of warranty) I'll let everyone know - and ROAST Tascam for not catching a bad batch of caps.
I have a Pentium 1/Win 95 tower that still boots fine - battery and motherboard ORIGINAL. There's just no excuse.
