I have somehow turned on the voice activation on my recorder and I don't know how to turn it off. This is a problem because it won't stay on long enough for me to change recordings. It also shuts off in the middle of listening to a recording.
Or could it be something other than voice activation?
Thanks for any help.

On my model the Olympus Pearlcorder S909 there is a slide button on the end marked VCVA (variable control voice actuator). Switch it to that position then press record and away you go, voice activated recording!
I recently bought this little headache of a dictation machine to help me with my Law revision. Had similar problems but have worked out the following:
The machine appears to have 2 modes of recording - LP and SP. When the machine is in LP mode, it appears to be a format for the machine itself to allow for longer record time. Because of this individual format it will not play back on computers. If, however, you change it to SP mode (from what I can ascertain from the VERY unhelpful user manual is 'high quality recording' i.e. standard WAV format) it saves the file in a .wav format which is playable on computers.
To switch it from LP to SP (this is on my dictation machine only - i take absolutely no responsibility for breakages etc):
Press 'M' to cycle to 'REC' mode
Use the Volume control to cycle between SP, SP VOR (no idea what VOR is i'm afriad), LP and LP VOR
Record as usual.
I've made test recordings on both SP and SP VOR and both save to WAV format and can be played back through a computer.
If anyone knows what VOR is then please shout back.
Difference between 4cm and 1.2 cm speed is just like SP and LP speed in VCR etc. 1.2 cm speed selection will give you more recording time on same cassette.
VOR stand for Voice Operated Recording, if you enable this vor option, tape starts recording only at that time when sense any voice and will remain Pause if there is silence.
This option will also give you more recording time at same cassette by skipping empty space.
