Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

I'm using a Radio Shack telephone handset recording control that you plug one end into the phone and the other two ends into the handset and the recorder's mike jack. (I'm using an Olympus DS330). Trouble is, it records only the voice on the other end of the line when I set the box to Record and then only mine when I switch it to Play. Seems to be using only one channel at a time. Can I make it record both sides of the conversation?

I use one, too, and it took me a minute to set up right. You need to plug one end into the digital in on your pc, or your recorder, and take the phone line from your phone, put it into the slot on the control, then take the phone jack from the control into your phone. Now, this is for a corded phone, but i cannot imagine it being any different for a cordless, as it, too, plugs into a wall somewhere.

Since I record directly to my pc, using WavePad, i don't know anything about the play button on the controller. I read that it would be used, somehow, to play the recording on the actual tape, but i realy don't know.

Hope that helps.

Eliminate static noise from TC200 volume knobs


It's usually caused by a dust and residue inside the volume control itself. Sometimes you can use a contact cleaner sold at radio shack and online. It's an aerosol with spray tube you attach to nozzle on the can. Sometime you can remove the knob and spray down the shaft. You may have to remove cover from recorder and direct spray in the opening next to the wire plug ends on the control itself. Just spray and move the volume control up and down while spraying. Be careful not to get on the plastic exterior of the player. If the control is sealed up too good this may not work. If not and you really like the recorder just order replacement thru radio shack or some other electronics store. Most of the time just a pair of pliers and removing a couple of wires to change.

Seeking to connect divice to record telephone line


What kind of device? You can get a decent digital recorder for $30-$100. Higher end digital recorders connect to computer and can save file and/or burn to CD. Radio Shack or similar stores have different type of devices for $15-$20 that help connect digital recorder and tape recorders in-line on your phone, and you can easily record and archive phne calls. Corded phone works best, but they have portable gadgets for cordless phones, too. Mobile phones require a fancier gadget, and might not be available at Radio Shack. You may have to do a Google search for that.

Will not work connected to telephone using adaptor


This recorder is designed to be used on analog phone lines with the included adapter. If you have a digital type phone system it will not work by plugging it into the wall jack. It may even damage the recorder.

To record YOUR calls you need the handset adapter which hooks in between the handset and your phone then patches into the recorder.

You can get one at SpyGadgets.com

Phone works fine except the person on the other end can not hear your voice. Phone is a Uniden DCT 646 series cordless phone with one addional handset. The additional set is working fine.


There is an inexpensive built in mic where you speak into the handset. Ifit is not clogged with any debris, the mic needs to be removed with a soldering iron and replaced with a like one from Radio Shack.

When i dial and press the talk butto, i still hear a dial tone...please help


Please follow these troubleshooting steps;

Tip 1 of 9
Move the handset closer to the base. The operating range may vary with environmental conditions and time of use. There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, you can conclude that there is nothing wrong with the phone. Consider trying a phone that operates on a different wireless frequency.



Tip 2 of 9
If you subscribe to DSL service for this telephone line, DSL filters must be plugged into EVERY phone jack that has a phone. The DSL signal can cause static/noise, squealing (similar to fax tones), caller ID disruption and other issues on your line. DSL filters block the high frequency DSL signals from being transmitted to the telephone. If you are not using the DSL filters provided by the telephone company, this will cause static/noise and possibly caller id issues on your phones.
In most cases, we recommend you connect the plug end of the DSL filter into the telephone jack, then connect a telephone cord between the filter and your phone.
Please contact your service provider to obtain DSL filters and installation information.



Tip 3 of 9
Other electronic products (i.e., 802.11 wireless networking products, radios, radio towers, pager towers, cell phones, intercoms, room monitors, televisions, personal computers, kitchen appliances and other cordless phones) can cause interference with your cordless phone. Try installing your phone as far away as possible from these types of electronic devices.


Tip 4 of 9
To get better reception, try moving the telephone base to higher location. Relocate telephone base near a window if using telephone outside.



Tip 5 of 9
Excessive background noise will cause a speakerphone to fade in and out. Try controlling the background noise by turning off any audio devices near the speakerphone. Also, try to avoid interrupting the person at the other end of the conversation while they are speaking. If background noise cannot be controlled, you should terminate speakerphone operation and return to normal handset mode.



Tip 6 of 9
Disconnect any other equipment that is connected in series with your phone. If you phone begins to perform normally, there is a compatability issue with your other equipment.



Tip 7 of 9
If your phone shares a power outlet with a modem, or if it is plugged in to a shared surge protector, try plugging the phone (or modem/surge protector) in at a different location. If this solves the problem, re-locate your phone or modem farther apart from one another, or use separate surge protectors.



Tip 8 of 9
There may be places within your environment that a cordless phone will not work well. If the problem only occurs in certain areas of your environment, there is nothing wrong with the phone. This is normal radio operation.



Tip 9 of 9
You may have a line problem. To test for a line problem, test your unit at another location such as your neighbor’s or relative’s house. If your unit works at another location, contact your local telephone company

Sound not recorded


You need an 1/8" male jack plug (both ends) cable. One end plugs to audio out on TV card, the other end plugs to audio in on the sound card. Or is it the other way around. Anyway, thats what you need. I think Radio Shack sells them maybe BestBuy or Circuit City.
