    I recently pulled my Tascam 38 out of storage. I had to replace the capstan belt and rubber pinch roller but everything else seems in good condition. It plays, fast forward and rewinds as it should
    My problem is there is no sound in any mode. Nothing from the output and nothing on the VU meters. Ive also noticed with the input button pressed none of the track button LED's will do anything when pressed. No blinking or solid red lights.
    Any help would be appreciated!

    I would start by checking the power supply- it sound like s DC voltage is missing somewhere. Fuse or cap problem? Maybe a fuse- ohm them out as they can still look good but be open.
