Hi, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, a little more background info please:

  • • has it been in storage for a length of time;
  • • is this a sudden recent issue;
  • • or slowly developing while in use;
  • • any recent work, repairs or mods done.

This happened 6 month a go SO I wanted to burn a CD and noticed that did not work. I bought brand new from Guitar center
and has been working fine till the time was broken. Never been repaired.
Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

Either a firmware issue or an internal hardware fault.

Would you be comfortable running tests?

And if needed, would you then be considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multi-meter and even a soldering iron?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I do have everything Thats why i'm trying to DIY
Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

Great on the DIY!

Let's try first the TEST Mode (if have not been done). Please click HERE.

Please post back results / observations of the above once tried.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I just did the test mode twice. Everything came out positive. So the firmware i think works great
Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

Appreciate the update.

What is the Tascam doing or not doing please?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
When I turn on Just The first screen comes with "Welcome" on front. After you can not do any operation. Nothing is moving. So you can not change the screen. CD RW don't open. That's all
Expert:  Louie replied 9 months ago.

It would appear that the CD-RW2000 is unable to complete its booting proces and has hanged at the "Welcome!" screen.

After the TEST Mode, let's review / check the basics; are the voltages present and consistent? ...of correct value?

Proposed internal checks (if have not been done), please click HERE.

A friendly reminder: voltage measurements by its very nature requires that the CD-RW2000 is plugged in and turned on. It is therefore LIVE! Please exercise due care and caution.
