On the side opposite the tape in each corner is a plastic tab. breaking out this tab disables the record function - it is called the "record lock" use a cassette with the tabs in place.

DP-01 Wont Record

You may need to assign one of the inputs (a or b) to the track you want to record to. Do this by first pressing the 'Assign A' or 'Assign B' (if you are lining in a guitar to the Hi-Z input then you'll be using 'Assign A') and then press the record/select button for the track to assign. After doing this you'll arm your track for recording and proceed to record.

Hope this helps.

Telephone recording won't work

You need to have a telephone record adapter plugged into the back of the 3750. Then you press and hold the Tel Rec button until it begins recording.

Also check to see if the 'Vox' or 'VA' switch is on (voice activation). This will cause the machine to pause if the volume is too low.

Cannot operate svr-925 digital recorder, need manual

How to Record:
1. Make sure HOLD switch (on side of unit with pocket clip) is set to off position (slide to right is off - to left would be hold)
2. For best results set unit with mic(rophone) which is on top of unit toward sound source and press REC/STOP button (Top button on front of unit just below LCD display). Recording will begin and will be indicated on LCD display.
> Red Record LED will be on and the message number, recording time will be displayed on the LCD.
3. To stop recording, press REC/STOP button one time.
* If no other buttons are pressed within 1 minute at stop position, it will power off automatically.
4. Pause during recording by simply pressing MODE/PAUSE button- press button again to resume.

There is a Voice Operated System (VOS) Recording button on left side also. You can record with voice activation to conserve recording space but I have found that you lose a portion of the recorded sound as it activates and if there is no sound for a very few minutes the unit powers off and you will get nothing further recorded. I recomend just keeping VOS in off position.

5. To erase a recording: Select the message number you want to erase and while it is stopped (the message number will appear in LCD with the length of recording showing also)
Press and hold the ERASE button until the LCD begins blinking "ERASE" then, while it's blinking simply press the erase button again and the recording will be erased.

6. To play back a recorded message find your message by "toggling" the switch on the right side of the unit that says INDEX. That switch is the fast forward/reverse play etc. To Play simply push the switch in. This button/switch takes a little practice to use but the Play portion is straight forward. Use the front buttons to pause and stop during playback.

Hope this helps.

Menu Button not working, can't record

There must be some keys active after you press Menu. Like you said, it must be waiting for you. After you hit Menu have you tried all the numbers and arrows?

If you can't get any of them to respond (except hitting Menu again to exit the menu) perhaps you need to try a different manufacturer code for your device. For example, if you have Brand ABC Model XYZ, perhaps the valid remote codes are 012, 013, and 014. Even if you have found that 012 works for most things but you can't record, you should try programming the remote to codes 013 and 014 and see what happens. There could be slight differences between the codes that allow most features to work, but not ALL features, just as you are experienceing. Good luck.

How to activate command buttons II

Hi Lensa, The code is fine there should not be any problem with it. Do not change anything on it. In my opinion the buttons and code has nothing to do with it since they are done automatically and usually work fine. When you press the add new button you are not just creating a new record you are also updating the last record. This button just send you to a new empty record for you to fill. From my experience the error message is due to 3 major reasons: 1. Your record source for this form is a query that cannot be updated 2. You don't have writing permissions to the database. Check and see if the file is locked or its on read only, Check security options and see if the database is read only etc. 3. Your records are locked by the table setting for some reasons, primary key fields might create duplicates. If its just a table try updating the table without a form and see what happens. As I wrote above the problem is with the record source or the database and since I can't see what you have there I can't help you further. I would also suggest you should practice with a simple table first before going into advance queries. Create a table with some simple fields like: ID - Primary key - Auto Number First name - Text Last name - Text Then create a form of that table and start filling in the names and test all the buttons, that will give you an idea of each button and I am sure it will be easier. Good luck Daniel

Do you have a remote? Some camcorders you have to hit the record pause button on the remote and then hit pause. It then begins recording. I hope this works for you.
