    I'm getting a frozen "Model 24" screen at startup after a few uses, I've unplugged it, switched sd cards, turned it on and off again several times quickly, tapped the screen with my finger, banged the side of the console with my fists, even took it out for dinner and a movie and it's still frozen. Does anyone know how to perform a hard reset because I'm running out of ideas and all my friends only use fostex and can suck it. Thanks <3

    Something to consider: Others who use TASCAM professional products that use SD cards for storage have found that cards not on the tested/approved list almost always fail at some point, causing boot up and file error problems.

    I solved my own problem by turning it on while pressing and holding the jog wheel down a la enter function.


    Thanks, me <3
