My olympus V-8100 PC (digital voice recorder) is dead, won't turn on at all

Changed batteries multiple times in last week. Turns on, but then the buttons won't respond. Like won't record, won't play, etc. Then after a couple of times of pushing those buttons, it dies again, like you need to change the batteries. This most recent time, it doesn't even register at all, doesn't start up at all. Just blank and dead. I had a couple of recordings in there that I needed ...

I can't turn my olympus digital voice recorder WS-450S on, even with a new battery, i hadn't used it in a while, so i was shocked that it didn't work. It only turns on if i plug it in to the computer, but...


I've got this same problem :( Turns on when I plug it in to the USB, stays on when I disconnect it but if I turn it off I can't turn it back on again. It is showing a "battery low" warning and I tried to charge it via the USB last night, but it seems to stop charging after a while and despite being left for a good time last night, this morning it is the same and I've had another battery low warning.

I've just found the full pdf manual online, and have found (on page 80) a reference to it not always behaving stably when connected via a USB hub. I'm going to try to charge it via a direct port and see if that fixes it.

Will not turn on


Make sure that the device is not in the Hold position. This might be why it keeps shutting itself off. Hold is basically like the on/off button.

Won't turn on


It seems to be working now....I am keeping my fingers crossed. Being that my technology skills leave something to be desired, I fixed it the old fashioned way. Took the batteries out, blew hard into the battery space, put the battery back in and said a little prayer. It turned right on....
