    My RCA RP5010 recorder will record only through a plugin mic, not
    through the built in mic. When it plays, then, the volume is very low
    even when adjusted as high as it will go. Any suggestions? Barb

    Sam...I love your website and it was the first place I looked before
    posting to this newsgroup. Could not find anything about digital
    equipment but I read about tape recorders, I haven't been able to find
    a bad connection anywhere. (What would make a built in mic be bad?)

    Not much. You might be able to check by just putting your finger on one of the
    mic connections while recording and see if a strong hum comes through. This
    would indicate that the electronics are fine but the mic is bad.
