Hi. I'm a previous user of the DVDPlusRW.org forum.
After months of trouble-free use, my Philips DVDR980 has just frozen with the above error message. This was after a Timer recording. I got home- that code is displaying, and unplugging it at the rear and leaving it for 10 or 15 minutes didn't get rid of it- it will not switch on at all.
Anyone have any ideas?
