Olympus VN-3100PC Digital Voice Recorder "Err" Message

I bought a brand new Olympus VN-3100PC Digital Voice Recorder and have recorded 14 hours of very important interviews for a research project. Get back home and the recorder is giving me a "CHK" error and then a "ERR" message immediately after it. I need to get the data off of it. Can you tell me what I can do to make this happen?

    Exactly the same problem - "Err' message after "CHK" message. Recorder simply dosen't do anything and have many hours of recorded music on it.Only had the recorder for 2 months. Reinstalling batteries only produces same Err message.

Download the digital wave player and install it. That will work for your VN-3100PC http://www.olympus.it/consumer/2590_software.cfm?category=0&productgroup=347&product=421&os=7&result=

    Hold down the disp/menu and stop button at the same time for a couple of seconds. It will go away and fdr will display. This will go away after a few seconds and your ready to go.

That message comes from low power... try new batteries or send to repair

I have the same problem but simply installing the wave player (which was installed from original purschase anyway) dosent help as with this error the computer dosent recognise the VN-3100Pc as the recorder is simply not working!

are you sure it doesn't say "CLEAR"? Which looks like ERR on the display. Its asking if you want to "clear" all data from the recorder.

Page 9 of your manual. Here's links if you need them:

Can't seem to transfer files to computer


The memory is probably corrupt. Use the reformat feature from the menu. Any recordings will be lost.

Olympus VN-3100PC Voice Recorder Problem


The ERR message can only be corrected by holding in the DISP/MENU and STOP buttons for two seconds, which results in all the material on the recorder being erased. It will say (FOR) for a few minutes while it is erasing everything, then will work again. Solution found at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Olympus-VN-2100-Digital-Recorder-microphone/dp/B000V3NTEU

Error message


I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory. Try to press the STOP and DISP/MENU buttons at the same time for about 2 seconds, and then the display should show "FOR". It will supposedly erase the whole memory, but will at least make the device usable again. I hope this solution works for your model!
