Just solved this very problem with the same machine.
1. Carefully remove the flash card and take a look to see if any of the connecting holes look visibly damaged.
2. If so with a birght light look inside the card port and see if any of the contact pins are bent.
3. With a thin scew driver carefully try to bring the pin back up straight and carefully ( not forcing ) replace the flash card.
Power up and see what happens. It worked for me.
I think our problem was caused by the purchaser either inserting the card the wrong way round or forcing it into te card port.
Once in, leave it there and just record and erase as required.

Good luck.

Hi, I'm having trouble with my marantz recorder. I've reached the 999 track limit, but despite deleting older tracks it still won't let me record. The solution must be something basic I've...


Since you have reached the 999 track limit, it is possible your CF card may have been corrupted.
On page 28 of your manual you should find the instructions for formatting your CF card.
"How to Format a CF Card."
This may get you going again.

Hope this helps.

The new phone I just purchased doesn't have an instruction manual in the box. How do I record a voice mail message?(Emerson Digital Cordless Telephone and Answering System EM6113BK)


First turn on the answering machine function by pressing Answer On/Off on the base. To record the out-going message, press and hold Answer On/Off. Then press and hold Announce (rewind) until you hear a short beep. Speak your message and press Answer On/Off to stop recording. The new ogm will be played back. (see page nine of the manual)

If you are dialing in from a touch-tone phone, press * to skip your Outgoing message. Enter your PIN (000 with the out-of-the factory settings). Then press 9 and then 5 to start recording and 6 to stop recording.

The manuals for many Emerson phones are here: http://southerntelecom.com/emersonsupport/emerson_telephones.html . The direct link is http://southerntelecom.com/emersonsupport/downloads/EM6113.pdf .

I hope this helps.

The memory card says unformatted card


Refer to your BR manual for procedure to format the card. Formatting the card in a PC just doesn't cut it.

Look in your index in the manual for "formatting" or "card"...etc.

Remote controls for factory alarm system are not working.


Resynchronization may be necessary due to the security method used by the remote keyless entry system. The transmitter does not send the same signal twice to the passenger door module (PDM). • The PDM will not respond to a signal that has been sent previously. This prevents anyone from recording and playing back the signal from the transmitter. • The panic button should still operate normally when the system is out of synchronization. • Resynchronization may be necessary under the following conditions: - The battery in the transmitter is very weak. - The battery in the transmitter was replaced. - The battery in the vehicle has been in a low or no charge condition for an extended period of time. • In order to resynchronize the transmitter with the PDM, perform the following steps: 1. Stand within 1.5 meters (5 ft) from the vehicle. 2. Simultaneously press and hold the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter for 7 seconds. The door locks should cycle in order to confirm resynchronization.

SHUTDOWN


My Garmin 660 after going thru the initial start up of "loading map" it will just SHUTDOWN. I have tried to clear the data in the diagnostic menu as recomendated by Garmin support to no avail. At the start, the trouble is it will just stay in the loading map stage. Then later it begin to shutdown.

Unformat


I have a PMD660 as well and from time to time a memory card will become "corrupted". During a recording last evening the battery ran out "prematurely" and when replaced, the 660 had the unformat error. Fortunately the card was readable in my Hummingbird card reader.

Normally when I have had UNFORMAT problems in the past I would just FORMAT the card with the computer and the 660 would then be happy with it. Not this time! The 660 still stubbornly displayed UNFORMAT! This time I ended up having to use Partition Commander to wipe out the partition on the card and then DISK MANAGEMENT in the XP's Computer Management program to re-create the partition and format FAT32. Normally when you FORMAT all data is lost so this would end all hope of recovering data from the card.

In the case of hoping to recover lost recordings I would have tried QUICK FORMAT and then tried to "recover" the data with a program like Partition Magic or Partition Commander or some other program that could re-link the blocks and create directory entries.

Problems with a disc that keeps reading unformatted


This has happened because somehow the program didn't "Close the Session" and make it so data could be added, instead it has "Locked" the disk to prevent any more data being overwritten and ostensibly corrupting the disk.. In this case however it has also locked out everything... and returned it to the "Unformatted" state. Although I suspect you will NOT actually be able to record anything to this disk in actual fact. You MAY be abale to use a program called Unstopable Copier, if ya lucky :Download HERE www.majorgeeks.com/download2623.html
