Question about Olympus S-701 Microcassette Recorder

1 Answer

Mickey Mouse voice

My microcassette recorder is an Olympus Pearlcorder L150, which must be a cousin of the S-701. It hasn't been used in a while, and now when I record on it, I get the high-speed cartoon mouse voice. I've replaced the batteries and the tape, and I've tested it on speeds, 12 and 24. Does anyone know why this is happening and how I might fix it? Thanks

Minicassette side plays for a few seconds then stops and beeps, what can I do? Thank you

This usually means the motion of one of the reels is not detected.

Does the FF and REW work?
Did you try another minicassette? Or maybe try a microcassette if you have one handy.

How to turn on Olympus Pearlcorder ''voice activation'' feature?

On my model the Olympus Pearlcorder S909 there is a slide button on the end marked VCVA (variable control voice actuator). Switch it to that position then press record and away you go, voice activated recording!
