Question about Olympus S-701 Microcassette Recorder

1 Answer

Mickey Mouse voice

My microcassette recorder is an Olympus Pearlcorder L150, which must be a cousin of the S-701. It hasn't been used in a while, and now when I record on it, I get the high-speed cartoon mouse voice. I've replaced the batteries and the tape, and I've tested it on speeds, 12 and 24. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I might fix it? Thanks

Will not start even with new batteries.

Make sure the batteries are fresh and make sure they are in the right way round.

If it still doesn't work I can recommend Google Translate which does voice translation and also translation using your smartphone camera.

There are lots of free dictionary apps also.

Who was japanese premier during world war two


The Japanese Emperor was Hiro Hito and there were 3 Prime Ministers during World War 2, each succeeding the previous: Hideki Tojo, Kuniachi Koiso, and Kantaro Suzuki.

Tojo served as War Minister and was put on trial and executed after the war for war crimes. Koiso was a token Prime Minister as he did not have much power. Suzuki was an important voice in the Japanese acceptance of Potsdam Declaration, surrendering to the allied powers,
thus ending the World War.

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: . The direct link to the English version of the manual is .

I hope this helps.

I have a dictaphone Smart 7120 and I can't get it

I've never encountered that problem, but the manual says: Make sure remote Transcribe indicator is extinguished. Move the Transcribe switch to Local position. Locate letter to erase with either [Prev. Ltr] or [Next Ltr]. Simultaneously press [Currnet Ltr] and [Erase] buttons to erase letter appearing in Item Status display. A tone plays and Erase LED lights briefly. Letter is automatically deleted.
To erase all Transcribed Letters: Make sure "In Use" Transcribe indicator is extinguished. Move Transcribe switch to Local position. Simultaneously press the [Finished Ltrs] and [Erase] buttons. Tone plays and Erase LED lights briefly. Good luck!

Do you know how to determine the total minutes on the machine? I have 2 that I want to sell, one of which is on eBay. Thanks.

Sony BM-246 working, then not

If your cassette stops but the counters keep rewinding the left hand rewind spool is worn.This is accessible from the top by carefully removing the little washer/clip and inspecting the drive hex.Parts may be a problem although this is not that common a fault in a bm246. If the counters stop along with the cassette there is a drive problem in the deck and you are is deep****. If the B deck is the sad one the machine may have been used with a footpedal as a transcriber. The decks are interchangeable however and with a bit of care you could get a usable machine.. just unable to rewind the bad deck. Good luck.

Only 22 minutes of recording time?

it is possible that you may want to reset the device and erase all of the data from it - seems as if the memory is caching some of the data that you thought was erased.
To reset the device - press the stop and erase button at the same time and clear should be on the screen - select yes and press enter - the device should now give you the maximum recording time allowed
