Question about Televison & Video
My newly bought telefunken personal video recorder 500GB Hard Drive Twin HD Tuner suddenly stopped working. Yesterday, it worked fine, but when I checked it today I noticed that it didn't turn itself off after recording as usual. It seem to be on all the time and I couldn't turn it off, the remote control didn't respond to any selection, couldn't exit, menu didn't respond, in fact, nothing responded. I changed the batteries thinking maybe that was the problem, but it didn't make any difference at all. I simply couldn't turn the unit off, nothing seem to work no matter what button on the remote I selected. The only way to turn it off was to unplug the cable, but when I plugged the cable back again, it was still showing the unit as on, without doing anything. I have only used this item for about 7 weeks, and am very disappointed. I live on the Gold Coast, Australia.

There is a section in the manual about resetting the remote. It is a simple fix You can go to the manuals on Panasonic.com to find the methods of the madness

Take the unit back to the store and exchange it for an other unit of the same. The likelyhood of two units not working is very slim, and good luck with your new unit.

You have the wrong firmware,or cd is corrupted.These Liteon recorders have had some issues with the timers.The 5005xa can actually be transformed into the Ilo R04.Look on internet the Wizard has free firmware for your unit, look for iLO R04 which is almost identical to your unit.
If the remote is broke they are easy to replace ,if the recorder is a 5005xa the remote is a clone to ones used in the iLO RO4,used ones can be bought on Ebay for $10 to $20.If it is 5005XSA use the Liteon Rm 51 remote.The Gateway AR 230 recorder and some of the Akai remotes are clones to the Liteon5005XSA remotes.
