    Hi, I need help, as soon as possible, please. After changing battery of my TM D8000 I upgraded the rom with the files downloaded from this forum.
    I loaded the file MAIN.mid with no problem; restarting the desk all was ok.
    When I Loaded the file Panel.mid it erased and overwrited the data and all was ok.
    Rebooting the desk, it crashed in all parts, display blue with no message, any control was out of order. Can Anyone could give a solution for solving this hard problem? Thanks a lot.

    Hi,
    I just wanted to start my gear, but "Midi dump file cannot be started " appeared on the screen and I cannot do anything else. When I read your messages, I don't know what to do to avoid these problems you described.
    Help!

    and the demand for power cycle the TM-D8000

    From this point, my TASCAM mixer died.
    The display no longer shows the warning Midi Data Dump but a black screen with white horizontal lines .

    The Main U 10 and U 11 are new...

    If the panel ROM is corrupt, you can't fix it with MIDI files.
    Probably needs a freshly programmed U3 ROM. (panel), but they are only sold in sets with the Main U10/U11 pair.

    Something to try though is to short the battery (with a 1K resistor) for a few seconds to scramble the volatile memory contents, that can clear some errors.

    Your panel U3 is working, great!. The Tascam Logo scrolls the opposite way one time in 8 (I think that's what it was) - that's an Easter egg for you.
    It looks like the Panel and Main aren't talking to each other yet - first check the cable between them - that could easily be damaged through repeated openings.
    and you probably need to get the SRAM cleared, so get into the diagnostics menu to do that. (instructions are here somewhere).
