Are you sure it doesn't say "CLEAR"? Which looks like ERR on the display. Its asking if you want to "clear" all data from the recorder.

Page 9 of your manual. Here's links if you need them:

    OK, on page two of your manual. Make sure the "polarity" of the batteries is correct. Positive (+) toward the bottom. And negative (-) towards the top. Also make sure you are using the correct type of batteries.

    Does this solve your problem?

    If all this fails and it still doesn't work then most likely the unit itself has died. It will cost more to fix it than its worth. Sorry.

I have sony icd-px820 voice recorder and i'll format it through PC and now its show a err call "err format" what can i do plz help me.?


You have to format it as FAT, not FAT32.
Then safely eject it from your system and unplug it. It will say ACCESS for a while and then be back in function.
Good luck.

Recorder showing these words in window: ERR wish to restore it to folder index where I have important interviews filed.


The ERR indicator is only active if the DVR detects errors related to decoding of video/audio. These errors are due to discontinuities in the received or recorded file data.

Screen shows ERR. I changed batteries and tried


You're right..This happens often when one changes the battery.Here's what to do :
The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in ALL the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again.

My Olympus VN-3100 voice recorder has suddenly stopped working! When I switch it on it flashes CHK for a couple of minutes then says ERR


I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory (ERR means memory error). Try to press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again! I hope this solution works for your model.
