Olympus foot pedal works backwards

I bought the AS 2300 transcription kit to do transcription and the foot pedal seems to work backward. When you press on the right pedal the transcription fast rewinds and when you push on the left pedal it goes into fast forward. I do not think I have the pedal placed upside down.

try reinstalling the software. And as for the foot pedals, take a good look at them and see if anything's wrong. If you don't find anything then plug it in and out a couple of times and make sure it's snug. For the phone, i suggest you buy a telerecorder. There about 5.35 and you plug into the microphone jack of your recorder and make sure to press record before each conversation on the phone. So far, that's all i can muster up.

SOURCE: During transcription, when you release the foot

It could be the rewind solenoid is jamed up or there is a switch that comes loose under the tape deck. Either way, it will need to be serviced.

Yes, you can assume that after 6+ years, the pedals have gone bad and you need new ones.

I have just installed the software for an Olympus DS 2400 and cannot get the foot pedal to work.

The player standard software that comes with your DS 2400 does not support the Olympus wav pedal (RS 27). You need the transcription version of software, the AS 2400 transcription kit (169.95) or, just the software, Player Standard T (99.95).

Olympus AS-2000 Dictation Kit - Foot switch doesn't work on Vista

HTML clipboard Olympus AS-2000 is not Vista compatible, you need to upgrade your software, I am not sure which version you have, but I think its version 6 ? You need to upgrade your software from version 6 to 7 (free) and then from version 7 to Standard (also free ) . check your foot pedal if it's RS-23 ( check the back of it ) then you need a new foot pedal ( RS-25 or RS-27 ) , if you have the RS-25 or RS27 you are ok .

Hope this will help

Olympus AS-2300

The new DS-5000 SW has still got some quirks. The RS-25 is no longer available and I too have had issues with the 27. If your PC has a serial port try the serial plug, I know it is a step backwards but it has worked for me several times. Hope this helps. For now I steer clear of the DS-5000's.

Foot switch will not respond.

The answer is all in the serial number you use to install the DSS player!

Look carefully and you will see the recorder disk has in my case an [E] printed above the install serial number and the transcription pedal has [T]

Install the same disk with the E the driver is there, the control in Control Panel is there, but the foot switch does not work with the software. Put in the serial number with the [T] and foot switch works first time!

If you uninstall the play and then reinstall with the [T] serial number you do not need to reboot or even unplug the foot switch from the USB.
