Question about Olympus VN-2000

Open Question

I need assistance!

I rarely used my VN 2000 digital recorder until I went on a cruise last Oct, 2006 and recorded a log and a lecture on the ship.

When I returned home I noticed that I can't record anything else on my recorder and I know there is a lot of space left. I have even erased a lot of my log as I wrote information on paper. I would really like to know what I might have done to it. I have my instructions and have reprogrammed it but to no avail.

Please help!

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:

I've purched the Olympus digital recorder VN-100 VN-2000 a few years ago. I've never really used it. But i recently need to..and for some reason it cant record. Everytime I push the REC button ,the red...

take out the batteries , push the reset button, then put batteries back and try again.

If still not working properly , then it probably should go back to Olympus, if you bought it a few years ago , its probably out of warranty.

You can buy a newer model like the vn-6200-pc , which has way more memory and more features for much much less then it will cost to repair the vn-100 or vn-2000 , f

I recorded my professors lecture and the recorder was right next to her, when I listen back I can barely hear a thing all there is is her voice but muffled because it sounds like a loud wind

During Playback you can press + or - buttons to adjust the volume. Maybe this is your problem. If you need more info watch video instructions chapters for Olympus on under Electronics-> Audio. There are 20 different video chapters. The info about + - buttons for volume during playback was chapter 7 (Playback)

Not playing full recording

Maybe it's the preview play option of the player that you are using. It only plays a part of the recording for you to identify if it is the right recording that you are trying to find because the recorded allows you to record more than one file.

None of the CD burning programs seem to work using the wav. files created by the recorder

maybe, you got those wav. files copy controlled. check out the relevant preferences from the voice recorder menus. if this solution doesn't work, simply convert the files into mp3, then convert them into wav. again. I hope this could help..
