Let me know the results please

Still no good

Thank you
Can you hold the channel up and down button on the player itself for 6 seconds, then release.
This should then put it into setup mode, complete the setup and tell me if it now functions please

This worked, but I had to format the hard drive, so have lost all the recordings on it (lots of them!) All functions are OK again - recording and playback, and DVD playback.

ok, it was corrupted firmware, we wernt able to avoid losing the records sorry, but it will be ok now.
