I’ve had this Panasonic Recorder for just over a year and it’s recently started playing up a bit, well not a just a bit it seems well and truly buggered on the recording front. My recordings on panasonic double-sided cartridge type ram and ritek DVD-RW media stutter and stall resulting in something totally unwatchable. The playing of DVD films isn’t affected by this fault so all is not lost.
I’ve had the lid off and cleaned laser with spirit but it has made no difference whatsoever. I called Panasonic hoping for some generous sympathy but no, they say take it to a service centre where it’ll cost an arm and a leg to repair.
I am seriously thinkng of binning it and buying a PVR
If anyone has any information on how to solve my problem I’d be very grateful.
Also any info on altering my machine to multi region could be helpful, I have seen these one shot remotes but have also been told it is possible to do this with a laptops infrared port and some downloaded software.
