I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory. Try to press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again. I hope this solution works for your model!

Olympus VN-3100PC Voice Recorder Problem
I fought with this machine for more than 9 months. And after playing with it today FINALLY got it working.
This is what I did:
Unscrew the faceplate. (Three screws. One is under the batteries).
Put the batteries back on.
Have the HOLD button on the normal position (down)
Press and hold the MENU/FOLDER button together with the STOP button
Press and hold the MENU/FOLDER button together with the DISPLAY button
You will see a GREEN light, then a RED light then a "FOR" message will appear
Press the DISPLAY button and after a few moments it will reset and ask you to enter the time.
GOOD LUCK. Let me know if it works for you.
HAVE A NICE DAY.

Need to recover deleted file from recorder
Sorry for a late reply but chances are high to recover your deleted files.First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.
Then connect your device to a PC, and have a try of Photo Recovery (also recover audio, voice memos, video files etc), a data recovery program which is good at recovering media files lost. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.
Lastly, I hope you good luck. Again you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Regards
