Thanks, Noggin, for pointing me in the right direction. The HOLD switch was set to HOLD. Once I switched it off, I was able to access my previous recordings and can make a new recording.

Here is the link to the user manual; depending how important the previous recordings are, formatting the recorder (page 2) may be the best option - can you still access the files if the recorder is connected to a PC?, in which case save the files you want and try the format. If this doesn't help, please ask again :)

try plugging in an external microphone, if that works and it records then the microphone element in your machine is bad or a wire has broken off of the microphone

When recording and on playback, there is a very loud hum over the recording and voice is barely audible.

There is an internal switch for record/playback. This commonly fails causing this issue. It will need to be replaced.

I miss a few do I back it up to get to that spot. When I try goes all the way to the beginning. Very frustrating. Thank You.

Hello I think what you want is to over record on a top of the previous dictation, but this recorder does not work that way example: let say that you are counting 12345678910 and you want to correct and add ACBD between 5 6 to listen back 12345ABCD678910. This recorder don't work that way, the only feature that this unit have is add or insert to the end, on the file that you are listen. During playback press REC for more than 1 second the record indicator appears and "ADD" will flash for 3 seconds in the display window the indicator will turn red and the new recording will be added at the end to the current message.

I really recommend if you want to used a Digital Recorder like the old style analog recorder with a slide switch this unit is really easy to operate and all the features that anyone needs, I think the price is not bad, is really a professional digital recorder

Rewinding to listen to recording

You should use the computer with Digital Voice Editor software to have more options when trabscribing. You could then use the transcribing keys to playback your recordings and regulate the velocity of the playback.
Download Digital Voice Editor Version 3.1.03 for Windows Vista/XP/2000.
64 bit version operating systems are not supported, though

It wasn't the timer but the settings on "alarm playback function"

Skipping during the recording process

"trying to record during playback"?... You can't record while playbacking in stereo mode, only in multitrack mode.
