Frequently Asked Questions

My SM2 series recorder will not turn on.

If your SM2, SM2+, SM2Bat, or SM2Bat+ will not turn on, there are a few a few simple checks you can perform before contacting support.

  • Replace all 4 D batteries with brand-new alkaline cells.
  • Make sure the power switch to the right of the SD card slots is switched up, to "Internal."
  • Roll each of the batteries on its axis in the battery tray.

If, after performing these tests, you are still unable to turn on your recorder, please contact Wildlife Acoustics support.
