Sony M10 random menu
« on: April 18, 2023, 01:28:59 AM »

If I use the Fr/down button, or sometimes when just turning it on, the screen flickers between various menus. It randomly increases/decreases volume and runs through menu pages. Knobs don't react.

Anyone knows something about this or if this is fixable?

You might try exercising all of the slide switches on the back edges of the recorder. I had some strange menu behavior with one of my m10s, and it turned out to be a dirty contact on the pitch control switch. Moving it back and forth a few times cleared up the problem. Hope it’s something simple like that.

I spilled a beer on mine and things really went south. The main control chip is right under the buttons, with zero protection from the elements. Any and all attempts to clean did very little, and years later I still have to stab at the buttons for quite a while to get it to work, so I only use it if nothing else is available. A general contact cleaner bath may help things.
