I have accidentaly got into an AV1 area of the recorder and can not find a way back to view TV on my recorder

Hi there and welcome

On the remote on your recorder, press the input or source button to get back to the correct input channel.

Let me know how you go please

There is no Source button, but an Input Select. I tried that, it showed that it is in HDD AV2 but nothing else happens

What is the make and model of the recorder?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Panasonic DMR-EX773EB

ok, keep pressing the input select button until you see the TV again

Let me know the results please.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
It just changes between AV1 and AV2

Remove the power to the recorder (so unplug it from the power socket)

Wait 5 minutes, connect the power and tell me if it then functions please.

Sadly it is back where we were 10 minutes ago, i.e. AV1 or AV2

What is the recorder connecting to for a signal? eg: Cable box, satelite box?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Just an aerial (is that a cable box?)

No it is different.

On the front of the recorder, open the flap and you see the channel up and down buttons.

Hold both of these for 7 seconds then release.

This will reset the unit, once done, set it up again like when you first received it and tell me please if you then get a signal.

Great!!!!! That worked. I will remember for future how to do. Thanks a lot.

Perfect amd you are welcome
