What do you mean locked? there is an hold button that slides and then you can't use any buttons, try to slide it the other way to unlock it.

Here is the link to the Olympus website where you can download the manual. In it there are steps to format the device which should clear all of the data and you should be able to start recording on it again.

Unlocking Locked Digital Recorder

Very frustrating for my technophobe journalist wife but changing the format is the solution and it's not as easy as it sounds. To avoid 'struggling for hours', olympus should have included something like the following instructions: access the options via the menu button (pressing it for a few seconds) then choose format with ff or rew but wait for 'yes' to appear and not just for 'no' to dissappear. Then  press play and wait for 'are you sure' to cross the screen and  choose 'yes' again and wait again for the 'done' message. Eureka, you can start recording again.  Fiddly enough, so without proper instructions...!  Hope this helps.
