Notes
Due to the limitation of the IC
recording system, this unit records in
the minimum recording unit of
approx. 9 seconds, therefore the
following symptoms may occur:
• When a message is shorter than the
minimum recording unit, it is still
counted as approx. 9 seconds so the
remaining recording time will
decrease by more than the actual
length of the message.
• When the message is longer than the
minimum recording unit, the
remaining recording time will
decrease by more than the actual
length of the message if it cannot be
divided by the minimum recording
unit without a remainder.
•The sum of the number on the
counter (elapsed recording time)
and the remaining recording time
may be less than the unit’s
maximum recording time.
You do not need to keep pressing zREC/STOP while recording.
* About one hour after you pause recording, recording pause is automatically released
and the unit goes into the stop mode.
To set the date to Year 2003, display
“03Y”.
• If you combine messages frequently, the unit may
become unable to combine messages.
When playing back a previously recorded message, start from Step 1.
When playing back a message you have just finished recording, start from Step 3.

Recording level is low.
“--Y--M--D” or “--:--” is displayed.
You can record up to 99 messages in each of the five folders (A, B, C, D, and E).

to play back when you make a long recording such as a
meeting.
You can divide messages until the total number of
messages in the folder becomes 99.
