Question about Olympus WS-300M Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Silly question, I know

Okay, I promise I'm much smarted than my question will make me seem, but I purchased this handheld and after putting the battery in the device, I cannot get it to turn on. Is there some trick to turning it on that is not in the manual?

I've been moving the "Hold" button back and forth and I'm not getting a response from the device.

Can you use this device to record telephone calls and if so how do you hook it up?


Hello,

The GE 3-5375 manual can be found here.

The device by itself can record telephone calls just by putting your phone on speakerphone setting; however if you need better recording, you can purchase the Fone-call recorder attachment at many electronics/gadget shops.

Here is one, the "TEC Telephone Recording Jack Adapter" which can be purchased from smithgear.com, Item # CHATTRAPPER FOR $24.95.

There are many to choose from.

Good Luck!

20 year old Dictaphone Voice Processor Microcassette not working


Not sure if you're still having problems with this portable, but the first thing I would check is to make sure that you've put the batteries UNDER the battery clip in the battery compartment. Does the machine just make a 'beeping' noise when it tries to play, rew, or FF?

Olympus DS4000 says Memory Error


I had several cases lke this with clients. One of the dictations is corrupted. It's the "one" here that matters. When you connect the DS-4000 to a PC, it appears in your "My Computer" as a Removable Drive. Browse this drive, and you will find the dictations in one of the folders (A, B, C etc...) or they might be scattered between folder depending on how your user records.
Try to copy dictation manually from that drive to the matching folders on the PC (by default My Documents-->DSSPlayer-->Messages-->FolderA, FolderB..., although you might have changed that).

At some stage one of the dictation files will refuse to copy/paste: that's the corrupted one; however should should be able to save the others. Once you have salvaged all but one dictation, you can do a format of the card. In fact, I suggest you chage the card, as corruption is usually a sign of worst things to come...

Using this procedure, at least only one dictation will need re-dictated.

I hope this helps.

Plug in the Olympus DS-4000 handheld and the screen blinks erratically busy and then nothing pulls off of the card to the dictation module.


The memory is corrupted. You can reformat but that will delete all your files. If you need to recover the files, try PC Inspector Smart Recovery. I have had good success with that. Then you must reformat, or the problem will return. The problem is caused from static shocks to the recorder.
