I have a Panasonic DVD DMR EZ45VEBS. Trying to record but the machine says I cannot record until I start playback on the DV unit. The sign on front of the DVD says DV. Can you help as I don't understand what this means ?

I managed to resolve this by pressing input select on DVD remote control so the DVD records now but I now have Sound but no picture when recording through the DVD. Any ideas of how to solve this ?
Expert:  Shahid replied 8 months ago.
This is odd, lets try easy thing first, unplug Recorder power cord form wall outlet for 5 minutes to reset, replug back in and check.If this doesn't fix the issue then need to go Setup menu of recorder and select Initialize option to get the recorder to default settings. This will restore default factory settings in recorder and should resolve any wrong settings issue. Please reply back with the result and if problem resolved then a positive rating to answer would be highly appreciated.
