Recorder Player Problems? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.
After you did the recording, did you "finalize" the disc?
You are seeing an automated ad by the site for a call or remote session. It is not sent by me. This is optional and may be ignored if you wish.
Okay I thought you were recording to dvd. Go into the panasonic menu and factory reset the unit, then try to record again please and see if it will play back.
Reset won't hurt anything.
If you're playing a disc ok, then the problem is not with the connections.
Do you have an aerial connection to the recorder?
If you don't have a connection to it, as I had suspected, this is the root of the problem.The panasonic cannot record anything if it does not have an input signal. The hdmi connection to your tv is only an output. The panasonic has its own internal freeview tuner, and needs an aerial connection for that to work.
You can connect the aerial to the RF input on the recorder, then another coax cable from the rf out to the tv.
You will need to run the channel scan/search function in the panasonic menu, and then it should record properly at that point.
Thank you for the info,
the channel scan is what you needed to do, and it sounds like you've accomplished that, so hopefully it will record now.
From the player to the tv you also want either scart or hdmi.
you should be able to bring up the Guide, then use the arrow buttons to highlight a future show then press record.
That is great news, Jacki, glad to hear that the recording feature is working for you!
