Customer Question

I have a Panasonic model  DMR-XW380 DVD recorder. Until the national Freeview re-tune on September 3 it worked well. Since then it has failed to record some programmes when timer recording is set. I have twice switched the unit off at the mains for one minute and this temporarily fixes the problem, but it recurs. A window (not shown in the Operating Instructions) has started appearing on a random basis. It reads to the effect "Could not complete recording". This appears when no recording is taking place! Could you advise, please.

Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

Thanks Anthony

I'll try disconnecting for at least 10 minutes and get back to you. Given the nature of the problem it may take a couple of days to see if it solves it.

Kind regards
