15 1 Installing Batteries Installing Batteries AAA Alkaline Batteries 1 Lightly press down on the battery cover release button and open the battery cover (☞ P.14). 2 Insert two AAA batteries, observing the correct polarity as shown in the illustration below, and then close the battery cover. Insert the batteries in the direction inscribed on the inside of the recorder’s battery compartment. In addition, when inserting the batteries, insert them so that the tape is under the batteries, as shown in the illustration. The batteries can then be removed easily by pulling up the tape. When pulling on the tape the batteries may suddenly pop out, so be sure to press down lightly the batteries with your finger while pulling. The battery indicator on the display changes as the batteries lose power. Replacing Batteries When appears on the display, replace the batteries as soon as possible. When the batteries are too weak, the recorder shuts down and [ Battery Low] appears on the display. Installing Batteries Notes • Be sure to turn OFF the recorder before replacing the batteries. Removing the batteries while the recorder is in use may corrupt the card. If you are recording into a file and the batteries run out, you will lose your currently recorded file since the file header will not be written. It is crucial to replace the batteries when one hash mark in shown in the battery icon. • Be sure to replace both batteries at the same time. • Never mix old and new batteries, or batteries of different types and/or brands. • If it takes longer than 1 minute to replace dead batteries, you may have to reset the time when you load new batteries. • Remove the batteries if you are not going to use the recorder for an extended period of time. Cautions Concerning the Battery Warning • Using batteries for which part or all of the external coating (insulating sheath) is peeling off or batteries which have ruptured may cause fluid leaks, overheating, and explosions. For this reason such batteries should absolutely not be used. • Commercially available batteries for which part or all of the external coating (insulation sheath) has been peeled off should absolutely not be used. Unusable batteries Batteries for which the entire external coating (insulating sheath) is peeled off (naked batteries), or those where it has partially been peeled off.

17 1 Charging Battery Pack Charging Battery Pack Directly Charging Through the Recorder The Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack in the recorder can be charged by connecting an AC adapter or USB cable to the recorder. Charging using AC Adapter (no cradle) Connect the AC adapter to the recorder. For connection procedures, see P.19. When using the adapter for charging, connect the power plug to the cradle AC connector. Charging using the USB cable (no cradle) Connect a USB cable to the recorder while its POWER switch is turned OFF. When the recorder is connected to a USB cable while its POWER switch is turned OFF, only charging will be performed, and the computer will not recognize it as a drive. Notes • Charge the battery pack often for first few uses. Battery pack performs better after several full charge/discharge cycles. • Battery packs other than the supplied battery pack cannot be charged. • If you charge the battery pack right after charging is complete, it will take only few minutes to charge the battery pack. • The PC must be ON when charging battery pack via the USB cable connection. • Charging battery pack via the USB cable connection may not be successful depending on the power supply capacity of your PC. Use the AC adapter instead. • Do not set or remove the recorder from the cradle while it is in operation. • Do not charge the recorder with the USB hub connected. • Do not attach or remove the rechargeable battery pack if the AC adapter or USB cable is connected.

18 1 Using the Battery Pack Using the Battery Pack The battery pack is exclusively for use with Olympus voice recorder DS-5000/5000iD. Never use them in combination with other equipment. Discharging Battery pack self-discharge while this is not in use. Be sure to charge them regularly before use. Battery life Over time, rechargeable battery packs gradually wear down. If you charge you battery pack regularly and you notice a decrease in usage time, then it is probably time to purchase a new battery pack. Operating temperature Rechargeable batteries, such as the battery pack, are chemical products. Batteries efficiency may fluctuate even when operating within the recommended temperature range. This is an inherent nature of such products. Recommended temperature range for use Discharging (when using appliance): 0°C - 42°C/32°F - 107.6°F Charging: 5°C - 40°C/41°F - 104°F Storage: –20°C - 30°C/–4°F - 86°F Using the battery pack outside the above temperature range may result in declining efficiency and shorter battery life. In order to prevent battery leakage or rust, remove the battery pack from the products when you will not be using them for a long time, and store them separately. Notes • This recorder is designed to fully charge battery pack regardless of their energy level. However, for best results when charging newly purchased battery pack or battery pack that have not been used for a long time (more than one month), It is recommended to fully charge the battery pack then discharge repeatedly for 2 to 3 times. • When disposing battery packs, always observe the local laws and regulations. Contact you local recycling center for proper disposal methods. • If Ni-MH rechargeable battery pack is not fully discharged, protect against short-circuiting (e.g. by taping the contacts) before disposing. For customers in Germany Olympus has a contract with the GRS (Joint Battery Disposal Association) in Germany to ensure environmentally friendly disposal.

19 1 Using the AC Adapter Using the AC Adapter Use the AC adapter (Olympus Model A513, included) in cases where battery consumption is a concern, such as when recording for extended periods of time. Plug the AC adapter (Olympus Model A513 included) into a household power outlet and connect the power plug to the recorder’s power connector (DC 5V). Always turn off the recorder before you connect power. Refer to P.16-P.17 regarding supplying power to the recorder and cradle with the aim of charging the Ni-MH Rechargeable Battery Pack (☞ P.14). If the recorder detects a DC power voltage outside of the allowable voltage (allowable voltage: 4.6 to 5.5 V), then [Power Supply Error Remove Power Plug] will appear on the display and all operations will stop. The recorder will not be operable while abnormal voltage is detected. Use the included AC adapter (A513). Detecting abnormal voltage AC connector The plug type varies depending on the country where sold. AC adapter AC cable Power Supply Error Remove Power Plug Warning • Always stop recording before connecting or disconnecting power. • When the AC adapter is not in use, disconnect the power supply plug from the power outlet. • Use only the correct power supply voltage as indicated on the adapter. • Do not use the AC adapter when connecting the recorder to the USB port.

21 1 Inserting and Ejecting a SD card Inserting and Ejecting a SD card Inserting a SD card Insert the SD card into the card slot in the direction shown in the illustration until it clicks. This recorder uses a microSD card as its built- in memory. The microSD card has been preloaded. Refer to P.51 when removing or inserting the card during emergencies. When Inserting a Card The recorder message [Please Wait] on the display flashes for seconds. Inserting an unselected card when the card selected via [Card Select] is not loaded will switch the recording destination to the unselected card. Inserting the selected card will revert the recording destination back. SD Card Selected SD Notes • Insert the card keeping it straight. • The card stops with a click when it is inserted all the way. • Inserting the card the wrong way or at an angle could damage the contact area or cause the card to jam. • If the card is not inserted all the way, data may not be written to the card. • Hold the card straight and pull it out. • If a unformatted card is installed, the recorder will automatically display the menu format option (☞ P.52). • Never use any card in the recorder unless it has been formatted on this unit (☞ P.52). • Never remove the card while the recorder is in operation. This may damage the data. • Releasing your finger quickly after pushing the card inward may cause it to eject forcefully out of the slot. Ejecting a SD card Push the SD card inward once to unlock it, and let it eject. When Ejecting a Card When a card selected through the [Card Select] is ejected, the recording destination will change over to the other card.
