Question about Olympus WS-100 Digital Voice Recorder

CHECK The voice recorder flashes CHECK and then the time. How do I get past this, so that I can record something else or playback a previous recording?

    I have a similar problem, but I can't get *any* response. I see the "CHECK" (and hear a double-beep), and "SEE YOU" messages at start-up and shutdown. On the display, I see Folder B, a full battery icon, HQ, a microphone with HI, "00", and "00:00". None of the buttons seem to do anything, with the exception of ON/OFF and Hold. I've tried holding them, and no difference. I tried removing the battery, replacing the battery, holding buttons when installing the battery. I plugged it into my PC, and was able to see everything, removed the data files. Didn't change anything.

    I think it might be busted. It worked, and now it doesn't.

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; http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/WS100200Sman.pdf 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 :)

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 words...how do I back it up to get to that spot. When I try it...it 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 http://www.tvps.com/Products/Philips-9380-Pocket-Memo-Digital-Recorder---New-LFH-9380__PH-LFH-9380.aspx

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
