As the first step as this was not clear, can you remove the power to the recorder and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Then connect the power, turn it on and tell me if it then records please.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
No not user error, the firmware crashed can happen. Needed a hard restart, like a computer can at times.It will be ok now. If it ever happens again, just repeat what we did.
