I've had a Panasonic DMR-ES16 recorder for about a year now and have mostly been using it to transfer old VHS tapes to DVDR.
Today its not working and "U61" is displayed which is not mentioned in the instructional manual.
When I try to insert a disc (blank or pre-recorded) a message comes on the screen saying "SELF CHECK FAILED. PRESS ENTER, THEN THE UNIT WILL OPEN THE TRAY AND POWER OFF AUTOMATICALLY."
Anybody know anything about this?
