With any type of digital device such as this, there is a motherboard involved. When the buttons arent working, in your case, the solution is that the motherboard is shot. You could try to open the device and attempt to fix it or find repair service.

Im having trouble with my RR-US470 i cant no longer remember the authentication key i used with my previous pc now im trying to use my rr-us470 panasonic recorder but i dont remember the authentication key...


You can move your files from the abc& s folders,

If you can't remember your password for the (S) Foler,
-Play the file
_while playing the file, Hold in on Folder Button
_You will then see the display with the Folder S lit up, and use the Roller to select the Folder you want the file to be sent to,
-Then press down on the Stop Button. The recording will stop and be moved to that folder.

Re: Authentication Key:
For the 450 Model; (May work for others/Not sure)

To reset the authrentication key of the unit, please try the following:
-take out the batteries of the unit
-put the unit onto HOLD
-put the batteries back into the unit; the unit should display "hold"
-press and hold ERASE, STOP, and REWIND or tilt the joystick left on the unit within 3 seconds
-if this is done correctly the LCD should light up and the REC light will blink; if not repeat the previous steps
-tilt and hold the joystick down for 10seconds; the LCD screen will display "hey del" to "finish"

Now I had to fiddle around a bit, like change the folder from ABC, etc. in order to get the instructions to work.

Now when you get it Finish(ed) just take out the batteries. The files were still intact in the recorder for me. I then plugged it in with the Voice Editing Program open, and then when asked to enter the Authentication Key, it worked.

I set the new key, But I thought it was supposed to ask you for the key everytime you plugged it it, but just the once (Win 7).

I got my instructions for this person:

You may want to call Olympus Customer Service and see if it is part that is available to be sold to consumers. Their parts department may be able to sell it to you directly. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Olymp. DS-330,None of the Buttons respond at all,only hold slider


If you remove the batteries and reinstall, does the display indicate Hold at some point? The hold button sometimes breakes and doesn't activate the switch. Pop off the hold button and move the internal switch manually.

Lanier P165 recorder instruction manual


The Lanier P-165 has a slide switch on the side for master power off / on. Also the battery contacts get flattened over time, a letter opener can help you get these sprung back out to make contact with the battery. Anything more than that consider it toast, serious professional tape units havnt been made in 4 years now. Its all digital now.
