Re: how do you turn it off

Put it on hold. Slide the "Hold" switch up and leave it up. It does work.
Sliding the switch back down takes it off hold and turns it back on.
When off (hold switch on) pressing buttons will display a message that says "HOLD"
That alerts you that it's OFF and not dead.

Sliding up the Hold key at rear of the unit and wait 3 secs. It will help.

I have a Zoom H4N and i am unable to select different modes on my recorder. There is actually no 'mode' available in my menu. How do i fix this? It is brand new out of the box.

If your H4n is in STAMINA mode (Switch in battery compartment) then MODE is not viewable in the MENU. Simply Turn off the STAMINA Switch and restart your H4n (Turn H4n OFF then ON again)

Hope that Helps

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.

The lock function turned on for all files on my WS-100 and I can't get it turned off - therefore I can't record any new files or erase any old files. I've followed the directions in the manual but when I...

Try to reformat your device( do not use a PC.) instructions are in your operators will mean you will lose all recorded information but at the moment you cant use the machine anyway.

There isn't an "off" feature. There is an internal clock that time stamps your recordings. It would be like turning off your wrist watch.

How Do I Turn Off The Power?

here is the link for the user manual for your model; Best I can come up with is that you cannot turn the unit off without removing the batteries - obviously means you need to set the clock again each time. I would also try press and hold the display button, then try press and hold with all other buttons in turn, one of them may do it - the manual does not suggest this will work but it possibly could. If no luck with this then try contacting Sony; They may be helpful - we get mixed reports. Hope this helps :)
