There is a reset button accessible by a paper clip through a small hole on the top of the player. This will reset your player (this is an extremely useful button!). You will not lose any data/tracks but you will have to reset the time/date when you turn your player back on.

Try setting the clock on the remote press [FUNCTIONS] go to SETUP menu - locate the CLOCK option (it should be under 'OTHERS' in the setup) and set the current time, press [ENTER/OK] to store if necessary, then press [RETURN] to exit the setup. Once clock is set correctly, future DVD thumbnails will show the actual date/time of recording in this (and similar) model combo units. If auto clock setting is not possible, set it manually as above.

I assume in spite of the wrong date/time, your DVD recordings have been successful. Incorrect clock and date setting usually only affects timer recording for VHS.

If you have lost or misplaced your original owner's manual, you can download a free pdf version (for Region 1 model) from:

or, if you live outside USA, download the 'Australia/NZ' pdf version of the manual (for Region 4 model) from:

either one of these will provide you a full copy of the original user guide/setup including clock.

All free. Hope these suggestions help.

What are the exact steps to bounce tracks on the Boss Micro BR

It’s necessary to bounce all of your tracks to a stereo pair of tracks before you can export your song to a computer as a WAV or MP3 file for burning onto a CD.
1. In normal mode, push EXIT and UTILITY until you see BOUNCE on the display.
Note: The upper right corner of the display shows the track you’re bouncing to. By default, “12V2”—Tracks 1 and 2, Virtual Track 2—is selected.
2. Press STOP and REWIND together to go back to the beginning of the song.
3. Press RECORD, and then press PLAY.
4.When the song’s finished playing, press STOP.

Phone is stuck in silent mode

Press and hold the pound key (#) until it exits silent mode. 

Here is the original text from the manual of the phone:

"Quickly Switching to Silent Mode
Silent mode is convenient when you wish to stop the
phone from making noise, in a theater for example.
In Idle mode, press and hold the "#" key until the “Silent
Mode” message and the Vibration icon display...

To exit and reactivate the previous sound settings, press
and hold the # key again until “Exit Silent Mode” appears.
The Vibration icon no longer displays."

You can also download the pdf file for the phone's manual online by simply googling "Samsung x427m pdf manual."

Hope this helps!

Hey EMURK72,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to enable voice recording by following the steps below:

1) Press the menu button ("M") twice to enter the main menu.

2) Press the "+" or "-" button to highlight "Voice Recording," then press the next track button to advance.

3) Press the "+" or "-" button to highlight "Record," then press the next track button to enter voice recording mode.

4) If you press the "●" button when the display screen says "Ready," you should then be able to start voice recording.

5) You can press the "Play/Pause" button to pause and resume recording.

6) Pressing the "●" button a second time stops recording.

If you'd like more information or step-by-step instructions that include visual aides, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
