h I nserting Batteries
1 Press down on the arrow and slide the
Built-in speaker
battery cover open.
2 Insert two size-AAA alkaline batteries,
observing the correct polarity.
3 Close the battery cover completely.
• Time and date display appears.
• The "Hour" indicator flashes, indicating the start
of the time and date setup process. (See "Setting
Time and Date [TIME]" for details).
An optional Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery (BR401)
from Olympus can be used for the recorder.
Replacing Batteries:
When [N] appears on the display, replace the batteries as soon aspossible. Size-AAA alkaline
batteries are recommended. When the batteries are depleted, [O] appears on the display, and
the recorder shuts off. It is recommended to set the HOLD switch to the [HOLD] position before
you replace batteries to maintain the current settings (Time and date, etc.). For your convenience,
the recorder also logs the current settings in nonvolatile memory at hourly intervals.
h P ower Supply
The HOLD switch functions as a power button. When you do not use the recorder, set the HOLD
switch to the [HOLD] position while the recorder is stopped. This will power off the recorder and
minimize the battery drain.
Power on: Reset the HOLD switch.
Power off: Set the HOLD switch to the [HOLD]
position.
Standby Mode and Display Shut Off:
If the recorder is stopped or paused for 60 minutes
or longer during recording or play back, it goes into
Standby (power-save) mode, and the display shuts off.
To exit Standby mode and turn on the display, press
any button.

to use the recorder.
Notes:
• The alarm will sound at the scheduled time even if the
recorder is set to [HOLD] position. The recorder will
then begin to play the file associated with the alarm
once you press any button.
• The recorder functions as follows with the HOLD switch
Strap hole

folder selection, press the FOLDER/INDEX button while the recorder is
stopped. Each recorded file is stored in a folder.

to access later. Up to a total of 100 files can be recorded in each folder.

h N otes for Recording
• If [FULL] appears on the display, you cannot record in the selected folder. In such a case, erase

• If the recorder is placed directly on a table when recording a meeting, it tends to pick up table
vibrations. Put a notebook or other item between the table and the recorder so that the vibration
is not easily transmitted for clearer recording.
• Even if you press the DISP/MENU button, the display will not change to current recording time
if the remaining recording time is 5 minutes or less.
• When remaining recording time is less than 60 seconds, the record/play indicator light starts
flashing in red. When the recording time is decreased to 30 or 10 seconds, the light flashes
faster.
• The recorder will enter Stop mode if it has been left paused for 60 minutes or longer.
• In case of difficult acoustic conditions or low speaker's voice, recording in [HQ] is recommended.
Also, usage of an external microphone (sold separately) could improve the quality of
recordings.
