Fostex MR16 Power Switch

The power switch has partly pushed through into the interior of the case.
I need to get access to the interior to push it back or replace if broken.
I have removed the four screws which appear to secure the lid, and also the slider control buttons, but the cover cannot be removed although there is slight movement on one side.
Can anyone help?

My Samsung dvd/vhs player will not stay on. Says hello, then bye a couple seconds later

Sounds like a bad power switch. When you push the power button, it will initiate the unit to turn on, but if the switch does not keep the power on to the unit when you let go of the power switch, then the unit goes into shut down mode. Then the unit will display good bye. I would have the power switch looked at first.

My MR16 says HDD full- so I erased 12 songs and 10 wav files to free up space. No matter how much i erase it still says HDD full when i attempt to record. do i have to initialize and lose everything to...

I had the same problem. After some reasarch I found out that even if you erase a song the data is still on the recorder in "hidden files".

What you have to do is download the WAV manager software from, then copy all your files to your PC, reformat the hardrive on the Fostex, and copy the song files back on to the Fostex form your PC.

I know it's a pain in the ****, but I guess that's one reason this thing was so inexpensive.
I still am very happy with mine, but after 3 years of constant use in my case, some type of maintenence can be expected to happen.

How to recharge the battery

Plug in power plug from wall adapter on rear right of case. Power On/Off switch is on forward left side of case (forward of Brightness and Volume controls). This should be toward back of case to be off. If it is on. an LED on left front of case will be lit. This should be off for charging. When the battery is charging, an LED jus above the power jack will light up. When charging is complete, this LED will go off. The switch on the rear left side of the case is for internal/external video playing. It should be toward the front of the case for internal screen playing. (The FRONT of the case is the one that has the latch for opening the DVD cover.)

Fostex vf 160ex odd things happening

Jen / Gently, I know you asked your question a long while ago, but I've got a solution. I had been having the same problem with mine for a while but I found an easy fix which worked for me. The outputs were acting weird, sometimes only the left channel would play, sometimes only the right, sometimes nothing. So I took mine apart, looking for a short. I couldn't find anything, so I tried my backup plan - spraying a can of computer duster (compressed air) around every nook and crany. I guess some grime inside was causing the short. Works as good as new now. I'd say first try spraying the duster with the case on, and see if that works, but you might have to take the case off. It's easy to remove.

If you do have to remove the case, here's some tips. Make sure you've had it unplugged for AT LEAST a minute before you go at it to make sure any residual charge is gone. You have to first remove the two black plastic side pieces, then the little metal piece by the cd tray. Then a bunch of screws on the sides, bottom-front, and back top. The wires aren't real long so you kind of have to fold it open. Just hold it open with one hand and carefully spray the duster around everywhere. Ussually duster will come with an extention straw and I recommend using it so the can's nozel doesn't get real close to the electronics (it can get kinda cold sometimes).

Well, I hope this helps you out.

Fostex mr16 eq/presets

In short - No. The Eq menu is the only way to affect the frequency levels on the inputs, but if you select stereo buss and listen to the inputs, you can hear the effect of each Eq on the relevant input.
