Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder

Open Question

Zoom H4n will not turn on

I bought a brand new zoom h4n recorder from america. Stupidly instead of trying it with batteries first a friend said they had an adapter fitting all US appliances, I said I was worried about it being the correct voltage but before I could do anything they had plugged it in and it came on for about 30 seconds before a dodgy lead came out, when we tried it again we could not get it to work at all, with the adapter or with batteries. So, i get we have short circuited it or blown a fuse or something? Anyway I'm pretty sure the warranty won't cover it and we can't get it to come on at all and it was very expensive. If anyone can help please do!

SOURCE: XLR connector tip separated from the 1/4' connector and is stuck.

solved with glue and screw!just to make sure: ccctierney was probably speaking about a trs 1/4' connector, not an xlr one - xlr connectors don't really have any kind of tip that could separate, do they?

anyway, i bought a new zoom h4n and after my first recording the tip of a 1/4' trs "jack" connector kept stuck inside one of the "combo" sockets, making me really unhappy.

after several hours of attempts to put it out with all kinds of nails, needles, pliers, scissors etc, i finally succeeded: i found a screw (wood spin) of appropriate size, dipped its tip into a drop of quick setting two-part epoxy glue (the one i used is sold under the name "furtopur" in my country - czech rep., i'm pretty sure something similar you can get anywhere), wrapped the screw into a piece of paper to protect the connector from being glued, put it inside and had a coffee to let the glue harden. after pulling then, here we go, the tip was out, see the photo!

SOURCE: I can't change the file types on my Zoom H4n.

I discovered that if I have the stamina button engaged (by the batteries) I cannot change the record type, either by the button or through the menu (the rec setting does not give the option). If I take stamina off -- which only takes effect after a restart -- the rec settings work normaly, both through the button and the menu!

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your handy recorder, here are some for your option.

Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music files.

Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the recorder in case the original files(your recordings) are overwritten.

Who can fix my Zoom H4N recorder remote jack and ac power jack?


I think you will find that no one will fix this as it is considered a disposable product like most modern electronic devices like this.

I have a Zoom H4N and i am unable to select different modes on my recorder. There is actually no 'mode' available in my menu. How do i fix this? It is brand new out of the box.


If your H4n is in STAMINA mode (Switch in battery compartment) then MODE is not viewable in the MENU. Simply Turn off the STAMINA Switch and restart your H4n (Turn H4n OFF then ON again)

Hope that Helps

Cheers
