I had this same problem with my vn 4100 olympus digital recorder. I learn from someone else on this site that you could just hold the display/menu buttton and the stop button at the same time for about 2-3 seconds. the FOR display comes on and all you have to do is wait a couple of minutes and your recorder is working again. Just keep in mind that all previous recorder will no long be there. they will be deleted.

When I connect the vn-4100pc to my computer I get ERREL on the screen. Please let me know how to resolve this.


Check to make sure the O/S of your pc is compatible with recorder.
If you have lost your users manual go to www.olympusamerica.com to download one.

Digital Voice Recorder Vn-3100


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:

Display screen flashes "CHK" repeatedly


Hello.

From FixYa Support: The "ERR" message reportedly means a memory error.

Please NOTE: This solution will wipe out the memory.

Press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again.

Hope this helps.

My Olympus VN-3100 voice recorder has suddenly stopped working! When I switch it on it flashes CHK for a couple of minutes then says ERR


I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory (ERR means memory error). Try to press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again! I hope this solution works for your model.

Olympus DW90 Digital Voice Recorder - Display Shows CHK and beeps


Make sure the recorder is out of the HOLD position. The HOLD switch is like the on/off button to the device. If you move it out of HOLD the device should come on and you should be able to start recording on it.

Olympus VN-3100PC Voice Recorder Problem


The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in all the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again. Solution found at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Olympus-VN-2100-Digital-Recorder-microphone/dp/B000V3NTEU
