Where is the recall button located on the Lanier VoiceWriter 160 transcriber?

It is under the flap located directly under the keyboard buttons. It is a slide switch and you can adjust it for a little recall or a lot of recall.

Lanier 5245 it has an error code SC329-00,

Did this happen after the machine was serviced? this is typically when it would occur...."LD pitch error"
Perform LD pitch adjustment with SP109-3, and SP109-4 (400dpi & 600dpi) or the ribbon cable on LD unit is blocking proper movement of the unit.

The tape recorder records well but does not run at standard speed

You don't say if it has developed this fault or if you have recently purchased it.
However the likely causes are that an electrical fault is causing a reduced voltage to the motor. Or if you have just got the machine somebody has adjusted the speed of the machine.
Some decks have one motor for both decks. On the base of the motor might be a slot. Inside will be a 'pot' that will adjust the speed. You will need a small screwdriver flat head type, to adjust, the playback speed.
Sometimes the speed adjust pot will be on the PC board. If your lucky the board will be marked! If not follow the leads of the motor to the board.
Sometimes the person who repaired the deck fits the wrong motor! I had one where they had fitted a 9 volt instead of a 12 volt motor. The motor at top speed could still not get up to what it needed to be!

There is a fast play switch on the side of the unit. That switch may be failing. Try moving it back and forth repeatadly to clean up the contacts.

I need a user manual for the Lanier P165 Voice recorder

I need a manual, too; however, I may be able to take an educated guess at some of your problems.

To get it to work (after trouble-shooting for battery issues, etc.), you simply slide the long "button" up and down. There are four settings -- all the way up is "record," then under that is "stop," then "play," and finally at the bottom is "rewind," which it does audibly. The two buttons beneath that are FF and eject (just below FF).

On the other side, there are four switches -- The top one adjusts microphone sensitivity from dictate to conference, the next one is tape speed (higher number means better quality but shorter time on tape), then the VOR on/off switch (voice-operated recording) which would start and stop the recording as you speak into it. Then below those three is simply the "on/off" switch for the whole recorder, so it doesn't accidentally get turned on in your pocket and you unintentionally record something.

On the top appear to be a few input jacks, one for a mic I guess and maybe other is for a speaker or headphones? Then there's the mystery button, that is labeled something like "# | / AFF." I have no idea what it does, but it may be to assign your counter number (counter and reset button on the front face of the machine) to a specific tape, so you can change tapes and return later to your first tape again without losing your place. Just a guess.

Here's some info I found on a seller's website - it served as the basis for some of my guesses above:

Good luck!
