I’ve just purchased the DVD recorder LVW-5045…after comparing the serialnumber printed at the back of the recorder with the ser.-number printed at one side of the retail box I realized that they are not the same! The number on the recorder’s back begins with M0151xxxxxx whereas the number found at the box is M0150yyyyy :a …Even the manufacturing dates are different (recorder: April 2005, box: february 2005).
I purchased the recorder via Ebay and it was declared as “absolutely new” with “2-years warranty in germany”…
Could anybody of you just have a look at the serialnumbers of your machines? And compare it with the ones printed at the retail box? Thank you in advance!
