Question about Denpa MP38 Voice Recorder
Well it sounds as if the flash memory on the unit has gone bad. But lets see if it we cant fix it first.
3. If you want to do a thorough check, select ‘Full pattern set’. The tool then conducts 18 test runs for every single bit to check its functioning but this takes quite some time. To start the same, click ‘Start’ and wait for the analysis to complete.
Now after check flash has ran it will either tell you if there were errors or if the device checked out and is perfectly fine. If it is fine then you can try to reformat the device.
Before attempting a reformat you need to make sure there are no system files that will be deleted to do that you need to enable show hidden files or folders. to do that follow the steps in this video
once you are able to see hidden folders open the voice recorder and make sure there is not a hidden folder with a pmp_usb.ini file or anything like that they generally have a faded icon to let you know if its a hidden folder. if there is a folder copy and paste it to the desktop Do not cut it.
Once you have done that and made sure there isnt a usb.ini file on the device or anything and check flash said there are errors you can attempt to format the device. Make sure before you format the voice recorder click on properties again and see if the device is fat32 or ntfs. below are the steps to format the device
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
now if it you have done all this and you formatted the device giving it a fresh start and check flash verified that there is no damage to the flash memory. You can try the device to see if it will record. If it doesn't there could be a few reasons why the ma-7 processor chip inside the unit is no longer functioning correctly and get a error when trying to record. Now if you have any idea how to solder i might be able to find you a replacement that you could attempt to solder in. But at the price of the unit i see on ebay it seems this wouldn't really be cost effective or worth the time and it would be more effective to replace the unit.. Only reason i say that is you say you have used it or a long time which means its most likely not under warranty. If you need any explanation on the steps above or require further assistance on how to go about finding the smaf chip inside of the device please let me know and i can assist you further. Thanks-Midwest-tek

Simply plug the adaptor into ANY phone jack in the house and record both sides of the conversation on all the phones that use that specific line from the one location. No beeps, clicks, or any noise will be heard whatsoever. Activate 'voice activation' mode and the Denpa will only record when the phone is in use.
Let us know if you have something more to ask else please accept the solution.
