Does anyone have (or know where to find) an electronic (pdf or otherwise) copy of a Tascam DA38/88 service manual? Specifically, I would like to know the procedure for completing a full transport and digital alignment, in particular after fitting a new head. I'm aware that this involves a mechanical alignment of tape path, a digital alignment (using oscilloscope) of head drum, and a voltage/current adjustment of head too. I have the tools to do it, but can't find the details on exactly how to do this properly. If anyone can help, or has access to this detailed technical information, it would be very much appreciated, as I have two DA38's that are urgently in need of some loving care. Thanks. Chris.
