Less than 5 years I don't remember exactly when I got it but it was definitely after 1st September 2009,
Yes It stays on until I turn it off. It just will not complete the initial set up.
Just before we went away I copied a programme from my Sky Planner onto a DVD and it did not record initially, the message saying the disc was scratched. I replaced the disc and it recorded fine.
Thank you Michael. I will contact a local repairer and see what they can do.
