DMR-E30 U99 Problem

#1

Hi,
Have owned this DVD recorder for a little over 5 yrs and this is the first problem I have encountered. When I power on I get a U99 error message and can not get past it–the operator’s manual isn’t helpful and I have unplugged it for 24 hrs. to see if it will clear–no avail. Does anyone know how to clear this problem or what it might be related to.
Thanks
