Resolved Question:

I have a Panasonic DMR-BWT735 Hard disc recorder. I can not get it to function a think it is because the 3 letters "EXT" are displayed next to the normal timer set symbol (red Clock)
I have a memory that I have had this problem before but I can not remember which button to press to return my machine to normal can you help.

There is no button on my remote control marked external link.There are only 2 buttons under the flap at the front of the machine neither of which had any effect.
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Do you have an AUX button on the remote? That can be used as well. If not look for a source/src button.

nothingif is helps there is a small symbal between the EXT and the Clock (all in red)
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
EXT means it is in External link mode. Normally it is supposed to have button to get you out of it both on the remote and the panel. Can you try both Prog/check and the AD button please? If the same thing happens we can try pulling the power cable for 10 minutes but we would want to do that as a last resort.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Prog/check had an effect but not what we wanted. It caused the TV to which the machine is contect to turn on but not picture or information was displayed.AD had not effect at all
Expert:  Freddy M. replied 1 year ago.
Ok can you unplug it for 10 minutes for me?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
