Question about Olympus VN-1000 Digital Voice Recorder
Recently, I my batteries ran out of power and upon changing batteries, my recorder has been absolutly unresponsive when and after I try to record. After putting new batteries in, I would be able to listen to audio, but when I pushed the record button, it froze. I pushed the record button and it said REC, then when I pushed stop to end the recording, it had the file number of said recording (14) and AM 12:01 on the screen. Then when I push the play button, the red light over the DISPLAY text flashes. When I push stop, it flashes green and displays how much time is left (5 hours). It even let me cycle through recordings (but not listen to them), but then I pushed record again and the display got stuck on REC. Every time I reinsert the batteries, it does the same thing: lets me listen to recordings but freezes when I try to record.
Can't record on the my Olympus VN-1000
+ I press rec button and it just shows rec in display (no recording time is shown ONLY rec)
+ there is no play back or stop function
+ i can only stop rec by removing batteries (stop or play will stop rec only ONCE - but there is no useful function - such as play or stop or rec.)
+ I tried all trouble shooting tips in manual with no effect
+ i cleaned the spring contacts inside battery compartment that interface with the batteries
+ it was barely used - and has not been used for a 1 year ( no batteries were inside it ) it was inside a drawer

If it won't PLAY VHS tapes it must have a serious mechanical problem (if it even loads) or its heads are glommed up, so it obviously won't record them either. When's the last time you ran a cleaning tape through it?
Solve the load or playback problem and it will probably record.
Time and poor storage conditions are the mortal enemies of tapes. Store the in a 'played
