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 !!

H4n zoom wont record says card protected

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

How to change keys on a song on Zoom H4n handy Recorder

There is a realtek app for sound cards that will do that and karaoke, it comes on many laptops and desktops. Some cmedia cards use this same app with their driver. Search for and install it without the drivers and it works on lots of hardware. Not sure if it will work on that zoom but, I would definitely give it a try. I have used it on several systems including the one I am using at them moment. I have a copy of it but I don't have a link to it, though. It's called realtek HD audio manager, and has tabs that has effects, open tab and on the right top corner has karaoke voice removal and choice of key.

Zoom H4n compact card is stuck in the slot. Cannot remove it. Where do I send these to be repaired

I had the same problem.
the sd card got stuck somehow with the secure lock.
the spring still pushed it out, but it was stuck in the slot.
i took a small pin and pushed it in between the slot and the card (upper side on the left) and it was possible to take it out.
