Foot pedal won't work with hands free microphone

We bought a used Dictaphone 3750 that came with a hands free microphone that has been adapted to fit into the phone record jack. When we press the phone rec. button the foot pedal stops working. Is there a way to use the foot pedal with the hands free microphone?

The Unit will require a special port to be install for the use of an external micro phone. This company will do this for a nominal fee. www.dtpss.com 1-877-387-2838

The 3750 won't let you control the telephone record jack. The only way you can get a mic to work using the Tel Rec jack is by pressing and holding the 'Tel Rec' button for about 1 second. But this isn't compatible with the hands-free operation.

If you're looking to do hands-free recording, it uses the built-in conference mic. Press and hold the 'Conf Rec' button for about a second and it should start recording. This built-in mic is located on the right-hand side of the machine near the front by the headset jack.

If you want to control the machine via a foot control while in Conference Record mode, you'll have to change the 'Foot Control Dictate' setting in the menu. Here's how:

1) Press and hold the 'Erase' & 'Search' buttons for about 5 seconds until the menu appears.

2) Scroll through the options until you get to 'Foot Control Dictate' and set this to 'Yes'.

3) Press 'Stop' to exit the menu.

4) Press the 'Conf Rec' button to enter record mode.

Now you should be able to control the start/stop of the record function via the foot control.

Hope this helps...

Dictaphone transcriber 3750 won't play, reverse, or go forward. What can I do?


Does anything show up on the display? Like 'No Cassette' or 'End Tape'?

Are you using a foot control? Does the tape move when pressing the buttons on the machine itself? Is the foot control plugged into the side of the machine (and NOT the back)?

I need to record something with Dictaphone 3750 - I have no manual and there is just a Tel. Rec button. Help


If you press and hold the 'Conf' button, the machine will record using it's built-in mic (located on the right-hand side of the machine, closer to the front). It is probably recommended to get a microphone that plugs into the machine for better recording quality. Depending on what you're recording, you could get a handheld microphone or a telephone record adapter that plugs into your phone and the back of the 3750 (press and hold 'Tel Rec' to use that).

Foot pedal FF or Rewinds when pressing Play


It's possible that there's a broken wire in the cable that connects the foot control to the machine. This usually happens near the plug that plugs into the machine, or by the end that goes into the foot control.

You can usually duplicate it if you put the auto-backspace up a bit and then hold down the play pedal on the foot control. While holding down the play pedal, try moving the cable near the machine or near the foot control in a circular motion. If the machine stops, rewinds or fast forwards, then odds are that the problem is with the cable.

Dictaphone foot pedal


It would be easier/cheaper to buy another foot pedal.
The older style had "leaf" switches in them and they are adjustable from below the foot control. There are 2 screws underneath each switch. Loosen up the one closer to the front of the pedal (just a little) and tighten the one in the back the same amount. This will raise the angle of the switch to make it more sensitive (lighter pressure to activate).

VOX


On the right-hand side of the unit, there are two buttons with on/off positions. Both the Speaker and VOX options should be in the off position. When VOX is turned on, it only records when it monitors a level of noise. I do not have it turned on ever.
