Sorry I did not get your initial response.
All other functions appear to be working. We can play and record on VHS ok as I said except for being able to see this helpful display in the bottom corner to indicate whether we are on SP or LP when recording on the Otr setting etc.
no sorry, nothing happens. have unplugged left off for 5 mins+...Pressed display nothing happens.......
When playing a video I can press display and the line of info comes up across the bottom of the screen but nothing when we are trying to record
The only thing that happened was that the sound went off and I had to turn the set off completely to get it back...
I have changed the batteries in my remote.
but still no joy
It doesn't sound to hopeful but will endeavour to give it a try over the weekend.
Sorry for the delay in response but as you may have guessed this is my business e-mail. I don't have a personal one at the moment. I have tried your final idea but it still does not respond. so I guess it's had it... Thanks anyway
I don't know if his follow up will reach you or not.
Mystery solved......We had to call our local engineer back for another problem and on investigation he admitted that he had put one of the connectors back in the wrong socket.....
After all this time it now works ok......
