So I just got a Tascam DR-100 MK II in and a shure SM93 lav and the adapter for the mic is stuck. I have no idea wtf is holding it in as i've tried pushing the lever to get it to release. Any ideas?
Are you holding the button down while pulling on the plug?
When you plug an XLR plug into the XLR jack a claw in the jack locks into the plug keeping it from being accidentally pulled out, pushing the release button moves the claw out of the way but doesn't eject the plug, it merely allows it to be removed from the jack.
Now if the jack is defective, that claw may not be pulling fully back, effectively locking the plug in place permanently, if this has happened you might be able to get a shim slid in between the plug and the jack, maybe pushing the release button at the same time to get it somewhat back to where it needs to be, carefully examine the other jack on your Tascam and you will see the claw and by pressing the release button see how it pulls back and that might give you an idea of how to get a shim in there and release the plug.
