Won't record, when i look tape is not turning or playing or moving forward

Hi, here's the thing...

- the batteries are new - correctly put in
- the first time i pushed record - i recorded "hello hello testing" and the counter moved
- red indicator light is on

BUT:
- when i tried to play - that is, i pushed the rewind - the tape moved a bit, but it looked stuck and wouldn't turn

SO HERE'S WHAT I DID:
i played with the unit a bit - that is, i pushed several buttons, turned the tape the other way and tried to fast forward so it would play but nothing

- i tried rewinding and fast forward while tape is playing (is this bad?)
- i tried rewinding and fast forward while it is recording (is this bad?)
^ and still nothing happened.

not moving forward, or backward or playing, or recording, now even the counter is not moving at all but the red light is still on, and just a hissing sound is coming out from the recorder which couldnt be from the tape as it is not moving.

*the black thingies that is supposed to play the tape is not turning.

i tried to clean the head per the manual, but that didnt work either.

help please. any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!

SOURCE: rewinding to listen to recording

You should use the computer with Digital Voice Editor software to have more options when trabscribing. You could then use the transcribing keys to playback your recordings and regulate the velocity of the playback.
Download Digital Voice Editor Version 3.1.03 for Windows Vista/XP/2000.
64 bit version operating systems are not supported, though

Hi,

Once you turn off the camera and remove the batter, does it power on and if you press the off button does it go off ?

Try this

You need to know in which position was camera turned of.
So try turning it on in RECORD OR PLAY position.
It will work then...

Olympus DM-20


first question batteries in correct positions
second did you do product upgrade

http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_product.asp?id=921

this is a link to software update

did you know that your recorder has usb connection
now most usb connected products usually have chargible battery's and some can only run with particular chargible battery i would try new propper chargible batterys and then dock to the usb station it should show the battery charge output and input you might have some chance fried your recorder by putting in non chargible battery's

there are places that exchange recorders but never heard one that repairs them you might want to take back to where purchased and exchange for new

Can't record


the reel sensor is the problem of your camera...sometimes it is a cold solder or poor contact at the socket in the main board.....

Problem with Playback and Record on camera


The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

Remote control will not work?


Hi Quad, recently I also got same recorder and faced the same problem with the remote controller. today i tried to solve this. i opened it up. it turned out the battery connections are not proper. The battery connection are in the form of a spring coil which touches the outerside of the battery which is not touching properly. I bent and slight lift it with a plier and it started working. The other connection is touching front side of the battery(on backside you see label cr2025 printed) and this is alright. I hope it works for you too. with best regards
