, I have a Panasonic dmr-ex773 dvd freeview+ recorder

This answer was rated:

, I have a Panasonic dmr-ex773 dvd freeview+ recorder which has provided good service up until Friday night when I went to switch it on and its read out says AV1 or AV2. I checked the troubleshooting section in the on line manual device and it doesn't list this code. I am not sure if the device has finally packed up or I have total loss of signal. Any ideas?
Thank you question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

I want to rule out the firmware as the problem.
To do this we need to reset the recorder.
Under the flap on the recorder itself is the channel up and down buttons.
While the recorder is on, hold these in seconds, then release.
The recorder may request you to set it up again, do this and tell me if it now functions please

I switched the recorder on, did as you ask that is hold the channel up/down buttons seconds then release, the unit has reset and it is now functioning well. Thank you very much.

your most welcome!
It was the firmware that had an issue, and needed a hard restart. We did this just then. It will now be ok.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
