Question about Olympus AS-4000 Desktop Digital Voice Recorder

Dictation file not playing - jumps forward as if stuck of f/f

Dication files appear to be on fast forward and are not playing each second of the file. Instead it skips from 0.00 to say 1.25 then to say 2.50 etc., nothing can be heard through the headphones.

We've tried a different footswitch, upgrading to latest software version, checked footswitch settings but nothing works.

Was fine yesterday! Does anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks :)

Is the machine ran all electronic meaning no moving parts
or
it is electronic and some mechinical moving parts

if i was to guess i am sure it is the drive belt for the machine, you maybe able to contact the manufacture and find out how much the belt is and do it your self, you will neeed the book on that type of repair too, but if you take somee where they do that type of work you will be paying them money for the products materails and belt and they keep every thing and yoou get charged for everything, like the manual, belt, or belts, computer time if they need it, shipping and handling fees, shop fee.

and than it maybe cheaker to buy a new one without anytype of moving parts and than you only have to were about power source.

When i press the fastforward button on my remote of the player and the video pictures moves and then i press play button..the vidoe still is stuck in the fast forward


The only viable solution that can come to mind is that perhaps the FF button gets stuck. Make sure it is not kept in down position after depressing.

I do not know how to use it, i have the manual, but i do not find it


The recorder takes 2 AAA batteries. Press Menu/Folder (on the right above the jogdial (Stop, Rewind, Fast Forward, Play)) to select the folder to add a new recorded item. (The folders are A,B,C, or S. Folder S will come up with a date and you can select another date for the recording.) Folders A, B and C can hold 100 files each; Folder S has 365 dates which can hold 15 items each.

Press and hold the Menu/Folder button for a second or longer. The Screen should show the Mode menu. Press Play and then the Fast Forward and Rewind buttons to set the recording quality. HQ is the high quality recording and will fill up the available storage on the organizer more rapidly. LP will record for the longest period.

Set the Microphone sensitivity by pressing and holding Menu/Folder. Then press the Fast Forward or Rewind button until Mic appears on the display. Then press Play and use the Fast Forward or Rewind buttons to select Low or High sensitivity. (An external mic often gives better results.)

Once you have set the folder for the next recording and the recording quality and microphone sensitivity, press Rec (center above the jogdial) to start recording. Press Stop to end the recording or Rec to pause it. (It will stop if the Pause is longer than 10 minutes.) Press Display to see how much longer you can record before using up the available storage space.

To play back a record, locate the item in the folder then press Play.

The manual for the Olympus VN-1800 is available from the Olympus support site: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_manuals.asp?id=841 .

I hope this helps.

On my Zen V Plus, I have an audio book that is sectioned into 8 different parts, each 1 hour in length. When playing one of the sections, it is registered as being 5 minutes 45 seconds in length, but still...


The unit only displays time allotments up to 59 minutes 59 seconds and then turns over. In other words, a file that's 1 hour and 6 minutes will show up as you have seen, 00:06:00 instead of 01:06:00.

The time on the bottom left is time played while the time on the bottom right is time remaining. Your unit will work fine once you get the hang of knowing how to look at the timers.

Sounds like you're listening to Podcast's.

Note 1: Now Playing - If you shut the unit down while it's playing your selection (it can be paused too), when you power back up, you can simply pick up where you left off by choosing "Now Playing" or just wait for the unit to automatically start the last file where it left off. Either way, it will start where you left off. This only works for the last mp3 you were listening to.

Note 2: Different File Time Reference - If you want to listen to another file other than the last one you listened to and you want to skip, say the intro and go directly to a specific area in the file, you will have had to remember a time reference from either time played or time remaining to get back there.

Note 3: Fast Forward/Rewind - As there's no bookmark feature on this player, the only thing you can do is to make a note of the time where you last left off of the mp3 and hold the stick/button to the right and fast forward to the general location. As you're scrolling to the general area, the longer you hold the stick/button, the fast forward progress will pick up speed to get you there quicker. Same holds true when going backwards.

Hope this helps.

Skipping ahead when viewing recorded programs


It sounds liek your remote control button is sticking inside a bit.
To test it, have it playing, and hide the remote under a cushion so it can't possibly send a signal to the main unit.
Sometimes the rubber buttons need cleaning underneath, even though they don't appear to be stuck down at all.
Its also possible that the remote is actually just going faulty emitting fake signals. I have a HiFi that turns on and starts the radio all on its own (spooky!!!). I found its the remote occasionally sends a radio-on signal about once a week to the HiFi :)
I just hide the remote now unless i'm using the thing.

I converted an MP4 file to AVI and when i play the movie on quicktime the audio is out of sync and the movie plays like its on fast forward. i am trying to upload it on youtube and when i put it on youtube...


Hello.

Give this a try:

Download the latest version of AVI audio sync tool: YAAI_2.0.3.488.zip
from http://findfiles.com/list.php?string=YAAI_2.0.3.488.zip&db=Mirrors&match=All&search=

First of all, make a backup copy of your avi file (this is very important!).

Step 1. Unzip YAAI_2.0.3.488.zip file. Launch YAAI.exe , "Open AVI" dialog will appear.

Step 2. Find and open your AVI file.

Step 3. Click on "Sync Audio" tab. Small video player will pop up.

Step 4. Now, adjust audio delay or frame rate (FPS) using sliders or appropriate buttons.

Click Apply. Video player will start playing your file with changed settings automatically. You can adjust and apply these parameters several times to pick up necessary values for audio delay or FPS. So, try to experiment and to set appropriate audio delay or to change FPS (frames per second) settings for your avi file.

Step 5. Finally, close YAAI tool. When it asks the question: "Do you want to keep the changes?", click Yes.

Hope this helps.

Jump to the other song


The problem is that your MP3 player has selected INTRO. This will play an introduction of every song in your folder. To FIX this simply
1. Play a Song
2. Press MODE (button on the left bottom side)
3. Select PLAY MODE
4. Select NORMAL

Problem solved!!

I had this same problem when I first got mine, I really freaked but a couple hours of fiddling around brought me a solution. Hope this helped.

Editing? Can dictation be paused, then go back part way and....


you can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

Audiobook download


Playing Songs, Audiobooks, and Podcasts on iPod shuffle iPod shuffle allows you to play your audio files in a couple different ways—you can play songs, audiobooks, and podcasts in the order in which they appear on your player, or let iPod shuffle work its namesake magic for you (that is, shuffle the files by playing them randomly).
Show Me How
If you want iPod shuffle to play audio files in the order in which they appear on the player, move the switch on the top of the iPod shuffle to the play in order (circular arrows) position. If you want iPod shuffle to play songs in random order, move the switch to the shuffle (crossed arrows) position.
ip02_playfnky_04_shuflebutton.gif This iPod Shuffle is set to shuffle.
To play music, an audiobook, or podcast, just press the Play/Pause button. To skip to the next song (or a different song if you're in shuffle mode, or a different chapter if you're listening to an audiobook or podcast), press the Next/Fast-forward button. To fast-forward through the audio, hold down the Next/Fast-forward button. To go back to the beginning of a song (or the previous chapter), press the Previous/Rewind button; press this button twice to go to the previous song or hold it down to rewind through the file.
To stop play, press the Play/Pause button during play. To turn off iPod shuffle, move the switch to the Off position (you shouldn't see green beneath the switch).
