Hi George,

​My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question. Are you able to describe the text for me?

Hi George,

​I have found a solution your recorder needs a firmware update. It may happen automatically over the next few days or you can check manually. I can talk you through checking manually if needed.

Panasonic released a firmware and that caused the problem but they have now released a fix.
