Question about Olympus DS-4000 Digital Voice Recorder

1 Answer

Not receiving files

Someone is trying to send me voice files from the Olympus DS 4000, but I am not receiving anything. My email address is entered correctly. The only thing it could be is a problem with his information in the sender's info, correct? We have spent so much time on this recorder (and money!)
Thanks for any info,

That's a quite involved problem, as it could be any number of mis-configurations, mail server blocks, etc.
Since you have an Olympus Pro product, your dealer is obligated to provide customer service (although it may not be free - we're fairly unique in providing free installation for our customers). They should be able to check the configurations on both ends of the situation and make the appropriate adjustments.
Sorry to say, but the configuration of a DS-4000 system is not clear-cut or easy. It's not necessarily Olympus' fault, as anytime you deal with e-mail it can be difficult. Personally, we prefer FTP for transfers: much easier, faster and safer than e-mail.
Sorry we can provide a more complete answer, but there are much too many things to discuss in one simple posting.
Good luck.

Correct full memory message on olympus 4000 recorder

You need to erase some files. If there are no files, the memory may be corrupted. From the menu go to sub menu, then format. This will clear the memory.

Olympus DS4000 recorder "new file" button broken

This is a classic: the 4-position-slide component (which includes the NEW button) is the weakness of the DS-4000. You need to get this replaced. If you are UK based, contact BES in Luton who will charge you circa GBP70 for the replacement.

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.

Had same problem. Found online handbook for DS-4000 and page 37 pointed way.
Press menu button on the handset.Go to sub menu. Page 37 of online handbook suggests you can lock and unlock from this but I used the format icon on the submenu to reformat the card. Seems to be working fine now.
