Does not play the recorded information

I am a musician, and I always record my music during performance and review. From last week, the H4 record my music, but there is no sound when I tried to review. It seems to be recorded filem, but no sounds. Should I get repaired? If so, how?

Hello, have you checked to see if the mic volume was down?

Here is a link to the manual if needed:

Hi!

Have you recorded it in Track mode or stereo mode?

Check your SD card for the files by using a card reader

    Files recorded in 4-track mode are saved by project on the SD card. The location where files are saved on the SD card depends on the current operation mode of the H4 and on the currently selected project.



    When the H4 is in stereo mode, the files are saved together in a dedicated folder for stereo mode. In 4-track mode, a separate folder is created for the current project, and the files are
    saved in that folder.

You can send the recorder into (Zoom) the manufacturer to the closest repair facility or their may be a shop nearby you that may be able to repair it. If you provide your zip code, I can provide some places that can repair it for you

Bring the device to a local music shop they will be able to repair it for you. I usually bring my own equipment to daddy's junkie music to get it repaired.

How to perform a factory reset on zoom H4


Hello ! Actually what you do is download the latest firmware from the ZOOM page. Find HANDY H4 (you can Google that) and go to the Download tab. Follow all instructions. Be sure to have new batteries or be plugged in to AC while you reset. I've done it on my H4(I have 2) and H4n and it worked fine. Be patient, it takes a while once you start. Good luck !!

Oh OK. The whole story sounds quite fishy to me. Have a handwriting expert examine it. Take a photo and email it to them. I know that they have tons of handwriting examples to authenticate signatures with. You could also try to authenticate the story itself by way of the studio or by his "people" or "handlers". He is a great guy and would not enjoy the story if it were not true. He would be ******, believe me. Musicians ALWAYS have instruments readily available is why I question the whole story.

I've bought a SDHC card 32 GB but Handy Recorder H4 do not recognize the card. I've tried to format it at the pc, but no way, the message is "no card"


Verify the device and card reader support SDHC. Try a 2g card and see if that works, typically anything 4g or larger is SDHC, older devices can not read such cards. It is quite possible that the card is bad.

Zoom H4 recorder ver 1.30 says no card although card is inserted?


Hi. Not sure you still are in need of a solution but since my machine was doing the same thing last night, and I was able to solve it, I thought I'd post anyway.
For my machine, which has a more current OS than yours (mine is 2.20 I believe), I was receiving the same message after transferring material onto the computer. What needed to happen was to reformat the card. If you press "menu", the click on "file" you should have an option to reformat the card. It worked for me and it now works.
Hope that helps!

I have a file that was not "closed" properly because the battery life died while recording. There is information on the file, but it cannot be read. Is there a recovery software for MAC that will recover...


This is a common problem if proper closure cannot be done is is not done by mistake.

You MIGHT try asking this on the VSplanet.com site where they discuss these recorders.

You may have to reformat your unit and of course lose the data.

The sound I record plays really softly once I upload it to my computer...


you need to record louder by raising the input level or getting closer to the microphone. you can also raise the level afterwards using normalization, compression or gain adjustment.

Not gettin to rec.


Take out the memory card, there is a little switch on it. One position is protected which means you can't record or delete anything from it, the other position is normal where you can record to or delete from.

Can't connect the h4 handy recorder to a mac


If you are using a Mac running Leopard (Sys 10.5), you need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php

You will need an external SD card reader.
Good Luck
