Customer Question

I have a panasonic dvd recorder DMR-EX769DB 95288-135431-3862
Problem: If I set to record a program at 10.00pm it will only record until 10.30
and then switches off the recording. Bearing in mind I have no technical knowledge
if there is a solution to this, I would like pass the information on to the technicians
who are trying to sort this out for me.

Hi Michael
This DVD must be about 7 or 8 years old.
The problem arose on the 8 Sept. We had the machine re-tuned at by technicians who have done this
in the past. I noticed that when I programmed for a recording at 10.00pm only half of the program was
recorded. I have never had this problem before. On Monday back it went for more appraisal but the problem
remains the same.
I hope this makes sense to you.

This problem is in the HDD drive.

Its possible it may need a new HDD,

does the time still stay in memory when you set it?

Thank you
