Re: No recording occurs when in record mode
If the red light does not blink while you speak, then the internal microphone is bad or a wire has broken off. If it is blinking, the record playback changeover switch is bad. This part is difficult to replace. Repair cost should be around $75.

Unfortunately I cannot find any references to driver installation for versions of Windows beyond Windows XP. The possibly means the hardware is not natively compatible with Windows 7. You can try installing the Windows XP driver using either compatability mode or if push comes to shove you can use the XPMode virtual machine to run the device in a true Windows XP environment with Windows 7 Virtual PC. I would contact Philips customer support for more information.
There is two red lights, one means you are recording and the other is low batt. which one you are talking about?
If it is Low batt light,there is dirty or bad contacts at battery compartemt. clean it with alcohol and a piece of cotton.
The other light is you are recording.

VOX means voice operated without hands.
Turn the main power button "on" first, it is located on the skinny side of the recorder opposite of the function knob. Press eject to open the cassette door and install a microcassette tape, with the tape facing the function knob side. close the cassette door and that should load the tape and allow the tape head and pinch roller to move into place for recording or playback. pull the function knob down or push it up to record. If you go into record a red light should come "on" the top, to indicate good batteries and the record function is initiated. After recording pull the function knob all the way down to rewind the recording,when you release the button the unit goes into the play mode automatically. Make sure that the button that reads (off--- vor/fplay) is in the off position.
You cannot push it in without a recordable tape in the unit. The mini cassette tapes have a removable erase prevention tab on each side in the front. If removed, you cannot push record. Try another tape. Otherwise the recorder needs repair.

The recorder should be formatted only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder and may delete the Voice Guide Data and Audible system files, so computer formatting is not recommended.
