Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

The disc in my Dictaphone Straight Talk transcriber #7120 is difficult to get to start spinning and cuts dictators off sometimes.

My machine is 14 years old and I have been told it can't be repaired because parts are no longer available. At times I get a "Service Now. Disc not ready." message which I can usually take care of by turning the power switch off and on 3 or more times. I work in a doctor's office and though this machine isn't used nearly as much as it used to be the doctors are getting very irritated with being cut off in the middle of their dictation and having to redictate. I am desperate for help as this could cost me my job if I can't come up with a solution to present to my boss.

SOURCE: instructions for speaking into a hand held dictaphone

Make sure that 'VOX' or 'VA' isn't turned on. This is Voice Activated recording and is designed to record only when the person is talking. The problem is that sometimes it'll cut in or out when you don't want it to.

Also, if the handheld has a 'Dict/Conf' switch, put it into 'Dict'. The 'Conf' setting is for conference recording - which will make the mic more sensitive and pick up more background noise.

I have a dictaphone Smart 7120 and I can't get it


I've never encountered that problem, but the manual says: Make sure remote Transcribe indicator is extinguished. Move the Transcribe switch to Local position. Locate letter to erase with either [Prev. Ltr] or [Next Ltr]. Simultaneously press [Currnet Ltr] and [Erase] buttons to erase letter appearing in Item Status display. A tone plays and Erase LED lights briefly. Letter is automatically deleted.
To erase all Transcribed Letters: Make sure "In Use" Transcribe indicator is extinguished. Move Transcribe switch to Local position. Simultaneously press the [Finished Ltrs] and [Erase] buttons. Tone plays and Erase LED lights briefly. Good luck!

Do you know how to determine the total minutes on the machine? I have 2 that I want to sell, one of which is on eBay. Thanks.

Lost manual for dictaphone 2750


For transcribing, you'll need the machine (2750), the power supply, a foot control, and a headset (unless you use the machine's built-in speaker).

For dictating, you'll need the machine (2750), the power supply, and the microphone.

"No Cassette"


There is a small switch mounted ion the tape deck. You may be able to take it apart and slightly bend the switch upwards so the switch will be activated.
