Question about Marantz PMD660 Digital Voice Recorder
Hey. I just bought a second hand PMD660 and it works great. From mains power! but I've tried Alc and NiMH batteries and there is just no sign of life. The display (when turned on via mains) shows "ALC" - as if it's a default setting, and even though I've changed it in all three presets - still no luck. I've been using brand new (and tested) batteries. I've also ensured that the contacts are not bent or dirty and that the batteries are seated propely. Of course. Is there some other setting that I should be aware of or some known problem with this unit?
I would suspect the battery tray connections are defective most likely due to a broken wire.

ALC Automatic Level Control
In other words, an audio compressor which reduces the level when the level gets too much.
Look up "audio compression" with Google for a complete treatise how it works.
