Question about Olympus DM-20 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

All the buttons on the device do not work in the "recording mode"

The buttons work very well, without any trouble when I insert the batteries. But as soon as I switch to the "recording mode", the buttons do not work ! For example, once I press "Rec" the recording starts but I can't press "rec" again to pause it or "Stop" to stop it. I am clueless please help.

    Thank you for your advice......I have tried the format option but it
    still does not work.....I think there is no problem with the buttons,
    but perhaps some sort of "lock" comes into play when you go into the
    recording mode.....The buttons seem to work very smoothly otherwise,
    but as soon as the recording starts, I can't stop it or pause
    it.....any other hints would be very helpful...thanks

Only possible solution would be to format the recorder to see if anything changes... make sure to download files before formatting the recorder. format is found in the menu

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD


Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

My RCA mp3 player froze and i can't figure out how to get it to work.


Try removing the battery, insert Pearl WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY PRESSING and HOLDING the "PLAY" button. Windows Device Manager should see the device under "Human Interface Devices"as a "USB Human Interface Device". Run the latest firmware update, it will see the HID device and initialize it as a "Disk Drive", "_Generic MSC Recovery USB Device". Once the firmware update is complete the Pearl should work again. The trick was to remove the battery and hold down the "Play" button while inserting to force recovery mode.

Limited recording time


WS-100: 64 MB
HQ mode: Approx. 4 hours 20 minutes
SP mode: Approx. 8 hours 40 minutes
LP mode: Approx. 27 hours 20 minutes

You can go to the menu of the device and change the recording mode from HQ to SP to get longer recording time. Page 7 of the instructions explains how to change this.

Cant transfer music or charge it


Could be one of three things.

  1. Try a different USB port, preferably one in the back of the PC
  2. Remove the battery from the back and re-insert it for a better contact
  3. Try a different PC.
If none of those work, thy this to re-install the Firmware.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://rapidshare.com/files/67740173/e200fw01.00.12.exe____

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.
