I missed the bit where it stopped working in the middle of a
recording, and can only conjecture that you toggled passthrough to on,
or off, or otherwise hit a button that modified the settings or mixer
volume level.  Most of the settings for in-playback audio are
reachable in the menu by pressing "M" during playback, but you can
check the manual for the others like mute/etc.
