Default Tanacom 1000 Issue

Need some help here people. This may have been answered here before, but after a few searches, I couldn't find the information.

Yesterday, went out for a deep drop trip and had the tanacom 1000 hooked up with no issues. I got everything rigged up and almost ready to drop and boom, the reel is stuck in reel (retrieve) mode.

Got back home and I de-rigged everything and had the reel and rod butt. I hooked up to power and the reel starts automatically retrieving. The display still works and I can touch all buttons and they are acting normal, but the reel never stops retrieving. The lever is all the way down too. I've seen a lot about a bad power cable, but it's hard for me to believe that this is a cord issues.

Any help or input is greatly appreciated!

Maybe the retrieve knob is stuck on go internally , try taking it apart , it may just be a spring or something simple hung up . My tanacom screen quit working , couldn’t do anything , got a new power cord haven’t had any more issues . This doesn’t sound like power cord issue tho , good luck .

Wanted to update so if anyone ever has the same issue they hopefully will find this.

I ended up sending the reel back to Daiwa and it ended up being the IC Board. Repair cost sucked, but I got the reel back in a reasonable amount of time and it's working great now.

Back to Daiwa Corporation in California. Anytime you ship them one of the electric reels it's $60. The IC Board that went out on mine was $230.

All together i was $310 in on the repair which included the $20 shipping when i sent it in.

I will just throw this in, my Banax Kaigen 1000 did the same thing. I emailed James at Frigate sales and he immediately sent me a shipping label. I sent the reel back and he emailed and said he was replacing the reel free of charge and taking the line off my old reel and spooling it onto the new one, also free of charge. Reel is now on it's way back to me less than one week later. Can't say enough about James and Frigate Sales customer service.

Oh trust me, A Banax is on the list when I free up some money. I love my Tanacom no doubt, but after reviews I've read on here, the Banax is the way to go. Dealing with Daiwa when I sent mine back in wasnt bad at all, but it would have been nice to speak with someone who is actually knowledgeable in what happened and/or caused my issue. Only person I got to speak with was the guy for payment.

Gonna say again for the 100th.

Buy a Banax the first time. I see hundreds of electric reels on my boat every month.

THERE IS NO COMPARISON.

Is the Banax better than the Tanacom?Of course it is,but there’s not much on the market that isn’t.Id go with the Diawa MJ1200 or the Shimano Beastmaster for a few more bucks
