Question about Zoom H4 Handy Recorder

1 Answer

The Zoom H4 becomes active when plugged into my mac, but when selecting "connect to PC"...it goes into a "Please Wait" mode and does not come out. I used this with both a Mac and PC and the PC states that it does not recognize the USB device leading me to believe that it is a device issue and not a driver issue. Is there a reset process or what are the next steps? The device is still under warranty. Thanks Bob

    Thanks for the link...I see the file, but I am still unable to get the H4 to enter into the "update" mode. Unfortunately, I had formatted the SD card and I lost the Pro J000 file...not sure what was in it, but it appears on the visual at the Zoom website. Any ideas where I can get this folder and related files? I am unable to find them. Thanks!

    Here is a link to their support pagehttp://www.zoom.co.jp/english/support/in... Scroll to the bottom for their advice. Mine is to return it for repair or find out from them where you can have it serviced locally since it is still under warrantee. They may even be able to send you the file if you explain.

My Zoom H4 Handy Recorder will not power on?


The H4 has a problem with the inside back circuit board disconnecting from the main board. For that you have to take it apart.
Pretty easy for anyone technically inclined. If I remember, 4 screws.
Carefully, of course. Inside you will find the back board (where the power and audio inputs are) unplugged from the main board.
Plug back in, and put some kind of piece of rubber or even cardboard (I did that) retainer to put pressure on and avoid this happening again.
It is a design problem, I had to find out myself.
Hope this helps, please let me know...
Enjoy !

How to perform a factory reset on zoom H4


Hello ! Actually what you do is download the latest firmware from the ZOOM page. Find HANDY H4 (you can Google that) and go to the Download tab. Follow all instructions. Be sure to have new batteries or be plugged in to AC while you reset. I've done it on my H4(I have 2) and H4n and it worked fine. Be patient, it takes a while once you start. Good luck !!

I've bought a SDHC card 32 GB but Handy Recorder H4 do not recognize the card. I've tried to format it at the pc, but no way, the message is "no card"


Verify the device and card reader support SDHC. Try a 2g card and see if that works, typically anything 4g or larger is SDHC, older devices can not read such cards. It is quite possible that the card is bad.

"Normalise" has disappeared from my


To normalize (automatic leveling) you MUST have a recording loaded AND selected. You cannot normalize the whole folder of recordings so they don't offer up that option.
