I presume you have tried new batteries, and/or the problem persists with the AC adapter. If so, have you tried replacing the SD card?

If these do not work then it is probably time for a repair, but I'd ask the Zoom Corp or your dealer first. They may have heard of similar problems and know a painless fix.

No sound coming out of the speaker. is there something i'm not doing right?


I downloaded the E_H4.pdf manual for this model and searched to see if it has an internal speaker. I don't think it has one.

I have a Zoom H2 myself and there is no internal speaker. You must use the earphone socket.

Hope this helps.

My Zoom H2 recorder is not recognized by my new computer with Windows 7. What can I do to solve this?


No solution, just a workaround. I have used the H2 with firmware 1.90 successfully with Windows 7, but lately the H2 is not recognized anymore. Built-in obsolescence maybe?
Anyway, I just take out the card and put it in a card reader. It is faster also. Card readers are cheap.

Zoom H4 Battery Problem


I am having the same problem with my Zoom-H2. I have 2 2650 mah rechargeables, and the draw is such that 20-30 minutes of record &/or playback kills the batteries. Last night I just turned the power on and did nothing. 5 hours later the batteries were dead...

This isn't a solution. It is a reaffirmation that you aren't crazy!

Ask your dealer, the one you bought it from. They may suggest an easy fix or guide you best on how to get it repaired, or at the very least suggest a place near you to have it repaired. If your dealer doesn't know, ask any Zoom dealer for repair info. Meanwhile, I assume you've checked your battery compartment to make sure the terminal connections are not loose (and of course that you've tried new batteries - :) ). Also, check Menu>Battery to see if alkaline or nickel batteries is checked. Finally, try removing your SD card and re-inserting, (even re-formatting the card, perhaps, but trying merely re-inserting first). But make sure any songs/info on the card are backed up first, because you will lose info if re-formatting the card. (For that matter, you could try a new card.)

Upload recordings from zoom h4 to ipod


if you are using a Mac running Leopard (Sys 10.5), you need to upgrade the H4  firmware from Zoom website
http://www.zoom.co.jp/english/download/software/h4.php

You will need an external SD card reader.
Once you do this, you can them plug in the Zoom to the mac with a usb cable, then select Connect to PC with the jog wheel.
The disc should show up on you desktop, and then you can download the files - (Should be in the folder marked STEREO)
Good Luck
