I have a Panasonic Blu-ray Disc Player, model DMR-BS850EB.
When I try to set a timer recording a message comes up "Timer Programme Setting Was Unsuccessful".
I can set manually & replaying is fine.
Any ideas ?

This is usually an issue with the firmware so I want to first do a reset.
On the player itself press the Channel UP and Channel down button at the same time and hold for 6 seconds, then release.
Once done, try to set a timer and let me know if it can now be set please.

Thank you - you're a genius! I expect you already knew that.

Works fine now.

Best £20 I've ever spent.

Your most welcome Dave.
Just needed a reset of the firmware. If it every misbehaves again, repeat that procedure.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
