] appears on the display, replace the batteries as soon aspossible. Size-AAA alkaline
batteries are recommended. When the batteries are depleted, [
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 Power 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.
Set the HOLD switch to the [HOLD] position. All opera-
tion buttons are disabled. This feature is useful when the
recorder has to be carried in a handbag or pocket.
Remember to reset the HOLD switch before attempting
to use the recorder.
• 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
set to the [HOLD] position:
– If the recorder is playing, the display goes dark when
playback of the current file has completed.
– If the recorder is recording, the display goes dark
when the recorder stops recording automatically
upon running out of free memory.

The recorder provides four folders, [ ], [ ], [ ] and [ ]. To change the
folder selection, press the FOLDER/INDEX button while the recorder is
