Richer Sounds cannot help me. They say they only support equipment bought from them. Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks Gerry

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
ok, thats a recent development then
Can I ask Gerry, are you open to purchasing a replacement player as this is going to be cheaper then a repair from any other place.
Let me know and what your requirements are and I can source one for you.

HI RICHARD

I DONT THINK THAT THERE IS MUCH WRONG WITH THE UNIT, HOPEFULLY IT CAN BE PREPARED EASILY.

WOULD RATHER NOT BUY A NEW UNIT.

THANKS

Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
Understood, just hard to find the Panasonic repair centers for these devices.
