H4n Pro not picking up ambient sound levels

Hi Brain Trust,

I just switched on my H4 at a council meeting, and it won't pick up sound levels. I have it sent to record at 256 kbps as .mp3 whether record level is set to 0 or 100 or anywhere between.

I don't see any other settings that are out of whack or unusual.

Any info is helpful.

Thank you!

Are you saying that it appears to be broken? Has it worked in that mode before?
Were you trying to record from the built-in microphones?
From a wired input from an external microphone?
From a feed from a press box or from the venue system?
Can you refine and expand your question so that we can understand the situation?

Recording audio without metering and monitoring is exactly like framing and focusing without looking at the viewfinder.

Have you tried doing a factory reset Chad?

"There are those who may,
And those who will,
Or so they say.
Lastly there are those special few,
Who say nothing -
But in their actions DO! (HH)
