    That is the problem... bcoz i cant get to the menu... coz everytime i press a key... "voice record memory full" appears... meaning i cant do anything to it just open and shut off (when you press the red key for some seconds)

  • jaypee masangkay May 29, 2008

    yeap i already tried... i think there was a reset switch at the back... but cant seem to see it...is there?

  • kcbpinky05 Jun 30, 2008

    Yes, but how do you do that, when none of your buttons are working in order to delete the voice recordings. Basically all I can do is turn the phone off and on. (yes, I've taken the battery out, waited a minute, put it back in, I've even tried taking the sims out.) None of it works, my buttons won't work, it just says Voice Record Memory Full. Now I'm trying to hook it up to my computer to hopefully delete some files so it will work, but I can't pull up a window or figure out how to get my computer to aknowledge it. Please help

    Hi, I have teh same problem. It happened after my baby used the phone as a teether. (Oops.) Function came back after a day, but then a week later the voice record problem returned out of the blue. Have not found a solution!

    YES - having the same problem. Cannot use any buttons except on/off and can only receive calls because none of the buttons work to make calls.

  • sm97 Sep 09, 2008

    Same problem...power on/off works, but the rest of the keypad does not work. only time it operates is after you hit the hang up button and another key, then it says voice record memory full. any answers yet?

    Out of nowhere, my razr shifted to "voice record" mode (which I had never used) and kept recording until it reached "voice record memory full". Now nothing works, and that message appears whenever the phone is turned on. I have tried removing the battery; no effect. Help.

I'm not a technician, but I had the same problem. After reading some people got the phone wet, I remembered I'd been in a heavy rain two nights ago. I had the keyboard locked with "voice record memory full" (after it filled up). My wife was baking a pie and I warmed the phone up on the top of the stove where the oven exhausts holding the voice record button on the right side of the phone at the top. In a few minutes I shut off the phone (the only thing that worked) and turned it on again and the problem went away. I just did this so it may not be permanent.

Ok this really works! listen up.... first remove everything. the bat..and the sim card. then get a replacement phone (your old one) and use your sim there. let it sit for a week or so 2 weeks is even better.

now put back the sim and presto! you have a working phone!...again!..lol remember it will only work for at least a week then it will freeze again. so best thing is after it works go to menu >tools and select voice record and delete everything. hope that works. i have not tried this koz i bought a new iphone..lol

but it was good for a week or so. enough to just trasfer my pics to my album.

I took mine to the Cingular store and he said they could not even hard reset it because in order to do that you need to get to the menu. Sooooooo, I bought a go phone from walmart for $14 and dropped the sim card in...everything works fine in the new phone (i save my phone numbers to the sim vs the phone).

FYI - even a new sim card in the razr won't work as the phone is completely locked up. Good luck with it...this was a pain.

My Olympus VN-3100 voice recorder has suddenly stopped working! When I switch it on it flashes CHK for a couple of minutes then says ERR


I had the same problem with my Olympus VN-5000. I found a solution, which appears to reformat the memory (ERR means memory error). 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.

Sony ICD-UX70/UX80 digital recorder...memory full problem


If you press and hold down the "menu" button scroll down to the FORMAT selection and press enter. This will reformat the device.
I had the same problem - I think it arose after disconnecting the IC Recorder when it became unresponsive with the computer.
Make sure you transfer all your files first to a computer or back up source.
