Lanier P165 recorder instruction manual

Hi there:) I notice you have logged a problem with your recorders. I have just joined my company and we have 2 recorders that appear to be ok but I cant get either to work and yes, have tried new batteries. Do you think you would be able to fax/email a copy of your instruction manual to me? Look forward to hearing from you. Regards EAPPG

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.

You can not tell me what setting to use on LANIER P-165 so that i can record someone and how far from them


If you want to record somebody 3-4 feet from you then use the dictate mode. If you want to pick up voices in a large room then use the conference mode, it increases the microphone sensitivity to the maximum level.

Pull up Job List, find the dictation and assign it to a specific person. Then you can listen to it. It will beep unless your feet are on the pedals.

Speed on Lanier P-165 keeps changing. How can I fix it?


There is a fast play switch on the side of the unit. That switch may be failing. Try moving it back and forth repeatadly to clean up the contacts.

I need a user manual for the Lanier P165 Voice recorder


I need a manual, too; however, I may be able to take an educated guess at some of your problems.

To get it to work (after trouble-shooting for battery issues, etc.), you simply slide the long "button" up and down. There are four settings -- all the way up is "record," then under that is "stop," then "play," and finally at the bottom is "rewind," which it does audibly. The two buttons beneath that are FF and eject (just below FF).

On the other side, there are four switches -- The top one adjusts microphone sensitivity from dictate to conference, the next one is tape speed (higher number means better quality but shorter time on tape), then the VOR on/off switch (voice-operated recording) which would start and stop the recording as you speak into it. Then below those three is simply the "on/off" switch for the whole recorder, so it doesn't accidentally get turned on in your pocket and you unintentionally record something.

On the top appear to be a few input jacks, one for a mic I guess and maybe other is for a speaker or headphones? Then there's the mystery button, that is labeled something like "# | / AFF." I have no idea what it does, but it may be to assign your counter number (counter and reset button on the front face of the machine) to a specific tape, so you can change tapes and return later to your first tape again without losing your place. Just a guess.

Here's some info I found on a seller's website - it served as the basis for some of my guesses above: http://www.martelelectronics.com/p165lp.html.

Good luck!
