The slide switch on my Olympus DS-4000 digital dictation recorder is too sensitive, and often goes to the "Record" position when it should be "Off." Any suggestions in how to correct this?

The slide switch on your Olympus DS-4000 probably needs to be replaced. You can ship it to PCDictate.com to have your Olympus DS-4000 repaired. The repair will most likely run around $100,

However, my suggestion is that you upgrade to the Olympus DS-5000 digital voice recorder, the replacement for the DS-4000. It is a substantial upgrade and you will not regret it.

If you want to consider another brand, Philips has some great digital voice recorders. My favorite models are the Philips LFH-9600 and Philips LFH-9500 professional digital voice recorder.

The best place to purchase professional digital voice recorders is PCDictate.com. Your recorder will be shipped the same day your order and shipping is free.

I have a Olympus DS-4000 which downloads via the cradle to our transcription software. The recording is skipping and we are missing words and up to entire sentences. What could be the problem?


When this happens, in most situations it is the 4-position-slide component which is faulty (or loose between the notches). If you are UK based, contact BES in Luton for a repair (circa GBP70)

Olympus DS4000 recorder "new file" button broken


This is a classic: the 4-position-slide component (which includes the NEW button) is the weakness of the DS-4000. You need to get this replaced. If you are UK based, contact BES in Luton who will charge you circa GBP70 for the replacement.

Editing? Can dictation be paused, then go back part way and....


you can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

Foot pedal


Make sure you are installing the Transcription version of the software not the Dictation version (Transcription version serial number starts with RTM and dictation starts with RDM). The foot pedal will not work with the dictation version of the software.

Read Only ?


I just installed AS and DS-4000 units. I upload my dictation to the server and it is then downloaded to my secretary. She couldn't change the folder because it was read only. I went on the server and changed the upload folder to full access and that fixed it.
I don't know if this is your problem. You might want to right click on the folder and see what the attributes look like under properties.
