Customer Question

vn-4100PC digital recorder worked last night, tonight when it was turned on, the screen showed "PC" at the bottom center and no buttons would work. The unit would not record. We recycled it several times with not change. Batteries are fresh. What could cause this?

Hi there,

I am Pete, and I'll be happy to answer your digital recorder question today.

The "PC" message will occur when the recorder is connected to a PC, or when a USB cable is connected to the USB port on the side of the device. If a cable is attached, then remove it.

If a cable is not attached, the connect and remove the cable several times to help get the recorder into an "unconnected" state again.

Let me know if that works out ok for you.
