I have not made any changes to the settings on the transcriber. However, when I play tapes I now get very slow playback, regardless of the speed I use. It happened one time and then it went back to normal and now it is back to slow and I cannot fix it. Any help would be appreciated! It's hard to understand the dictation! :o)

Start by cleaning the capstan roller. The rubber roller and small steel rod just above it, control the tape speed. Just a little lint, build up or animal hair wrapped around this can cause the speed to vary. Clean with alcohol and a Q-tip.
Hello this transcriber is only a 4.8 Speed transcriber and the slide speed control is on the front of the unit if the cassette that you are trying is a Normal 4.8 speed and is not responding you need to send your unit for service you can try this place Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (800) 644-9525. Please indicate model, serial and detailed description of problem
2 things to check:
1. is the speechmike set as default playback device: go to Control Panel--> Sounds and Audio Devices; and in the opening window, go under the Audio tab; in the Sound Playback, the default device should be set to SpeecMike II if you want the sound to come out of the SpeechMike.
2. Playback volumes: still in the same tab, click the Volume button of the default device; it opens a set of volume controls; you need to ensure that for the WAVE, and Speaker (or Volume Control), the Mute box isn't ticked; you also want to set this volume to something not equal to zero (i.e. move the cursor up to at least 1/3 of the level).
Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.
