Hi there and welcome

When it says nodata it refers to no data being within the current song

Are you getting this on all songs you select?

there is an E in front of no data. it used to start with no data without the e. .. e innit 1 appears first

ok, remove the power again, wait 5 minutes, connect the power and tell me what it now does please.

there is an arrow flashing to the right but i cant access it to say yes

it does do it but usually very quickly that you would not normally notice it, it can at times take some time to load and then it remains on for a bit.

The recorder is not responding to anything you do correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
correct ish. i can use the rec select button to get ready to record. i can go through the recording process to get ready to record, but when i actually press record , the digital travk does not move or count on

Thanks, ***** ***** the issue

It is the internal memory that has faulted. Anything to do with it accessing the memory is when the failure occurs

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the recorder to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

ok thanks for trying. its well out of warranty . ive had it for 6 or 7 years.

ok, if you can find a second hand one online with a working mainboard, you can replace it yourself if your handy with electronics (no soldering is required)

Else you would need to purchase a replacement one sorry.

If you need anything else, please let me know.

And please remember the service rating via one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit

Thank you
