Hi, My name is ***** ***** i will be assisting you
the message UNFORMAT indicates that there is a disc inserted in the recorder that is not supported\ not formatted or was recorded on another device
please remove any disc that is inserted
turn off unit
unplug power cord
keep the ON button on unit pressed for 10 secs
plug in power cord and turn on unit( no disc should be inserted)
let me know if it still gives the unformat message
the unformat message no longer appears
ok now insert any other disc than the one that was there in previously
check if it repeats the error
if the unit does not repeat the same error and operates normally then the disc that was inserted initially has a corruption or compatibility issue with the player and would need to be formatted. in case its a blank disc, format it to use it. if it has some content on it, i would suggest to transfer content onto another storage medium like maybe a computer.
however if the unit does not operate normally let me know and i will suggest further accordingly
