Hi Daveandlani, this is what you need to do:
1- While the recorder is stopped, press the MENU/STOP button for at least 2 seconds.
2- Press the FORWARD or BACKWARD button to select “VOICE”, then press the PLAY button.
3- Press the FORWARD or BACKWARD button to select “REC SELECT”, then press the W button.
4- Press the FORWARD or BACKWARD button to select “LINE”, then press the PLAY button.
Note:
· If you record audio with an external stereo microphone, select “MIC” . For external microphones, Yamaha recommends that you use an electret condenser microphone with the capabilities of plug-in power operation, 2k ω impedance, performance guaranteed with a 1.3V power supply, and a 3.5mm stereo mini plug.
Good Luck!!!!

Not sure whether this will help:

Check the section for Automatic Level Control (ALC) and set to 'off', and the section for Microphone Sensitivity.

In terms of recording format, audio can be saved as CD-quality Wave files (.wav) or as one of four different types of MP3. Up to 284 hours of recording is possible in LP Mono mode, providing excellent support for meetings, events, and other environments where extended recording is required. In Manual mode, the recording level can be freely adjusted to one of 31 different settings; alternatively, the Automatic Level Control (ALC) function can be used to automatically set the best recording volume for the target sound source.

Check out the sensitivity select (High/Middle/Low) - Level meter display.
if that is proper then its quite possible that the connections are improper.

The input levels of the left and right microphones are highly inequal, what can I do?


perhaps the left speaker is damaged
what i would do is load a known mp3 too the sdcard
and play it back on your unit

if its aok level wise
then the left mic has an issue
try an external input too the left mic
if it again records bad there is an issue with the input amp and alc circuit
if it records ok chances are the left electret mic has failed and will need replaced out usually these small mics have an amp built in then this output goes at line level to the input switched between line level in mic in or internal mic in as a mix....

Technics rs-tr355 how to record live


Joe I can only give you what I had learned over the years recording Cantatas and choirs and soloists in church.1) If your mikes have switches TIE THEM WITH DOWN WITH DUCT TAPE You ask why I had artists that turn the mikes "Off" just for fun and after the session ask for a copy of the recording if it came out good. I disabled the switches in my mikes. 2) Put your mikes not at the artist but a little distance from them for is it is a sermon the preacher moves his/her head talking to the crowd.3) SERVICE your recorder and MAKE SURE THE HEADS ARE CLEAN USE VIRGIN TAPE if possible because there can a speck of the magnetic material come off and this prevent your erase head doing its work properly 4) If you record music, try to go to the practicing sessions so that you can grasp an idea for the optimum placing of you mikes. Keep your levels UNDER the "0" mark I leave them at maximum 10dB below the zero mark. Practice and try different positions of your mikes till you are satisfied. If you can invest in a microphone mixer and employ multiple mikes.5) If you buy a recording set get the most expensive cardioid microphone you can afford. If you upgrade later then just carry your mikes over to the new set.Why cardioide or heart shaped mikes they cancel out background noise.I did this the times that I did a lot of recordings. I have AKG UHER Sennheiser units that give me stirling service since 1966 I clip the plugs off about 40 mm from the plug and then resoldered the plugs back on I had no cable giving grief during recording sessions Have a spare mike on standby just so that you have no Murphy's law cases! HAVE FUN

What helped finally: I formatted the SD. Now I've got all the memory back. Don't know if that would help the recording speed. but maybe. IMPORTANT: SAVE ANY FILES on your LAPTOP before formatting the SD.Here's how to format the SD:Go to Menu.Click on "Common Menu"Scroll down until you get to "Format"Press "Yes""Formatting SD" comes up and, Voila,You've got more space.

Severe crackling during recording


.i assume the crackle you'r getting it when you are using the built in mics? i;m still in the process of troubleshooting my 2g but this is what I've got so far....the line in dosn't suffer from the crackel, so it cracked here open , didn't see any obvious problems on the board so i disconnected the black wire from one of the built in mics and this is what i found: odd and strange..... the crackle went away but i haven't tested that in depth yet 2. when recording it looked like i was getting some thing on both tracks odd.. thought 1 channel would be dead. anyway i got tired and put it away and haven't gotten back to it yet but about time i did so hopefully this weekend . hopefully i'll have some more useful info.. now a note on my take so fare as to where the crackle is coming from , bear in mind i've only had about 3 hours with the 2g so far so still getting acquainted. i'm getting the feeling it might be associated with the ACG or the record level auto calibration or clipping etc.. because i noticed that it seems like its starting ,checking levels, and setting things the a spike and it resets and starts over again. how ever the pattern is to random from what I've seen so far to to be anything concrete

This could be due to the output volume and monitor mix are turned too low. You can fix this by adjusting the input gain levels in the ASIO settings menu.

The screen of my C24 no longer lights up. Data is still visible on the screen and it still works when connected to the computer, but there is no back light.


You may have set the screen to the off position. It can be set by going to
-- menu
-- common menu (press record to activate)
(scroll down by pressing STOP) Backlight record to activate

You can set a lot of preferences in this area.

How do I turn the audio record level off so that I can record an image without sound?


If you don't want sound and have a mini jack cable, you might be able to plug into the mike jack on the side of the camera.
I have an external 2 input audio mixer on my camera. It connects through that input. If I do not have a mike plugged into my mixer and the mixer is plugged in, I will not get audio. You could also maybe try turning your audio levels all the way down.

Try reformatting the yamaha 2G Pocketrak using the setting under Common. THe online manual mentions that if one uses the PCM setting for a lot of recording, it's a good idea to reformat more often.
