Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
Hello, this is about the Panasonic DMR - EX78.
I've noticed I've lost all my timer settings and all of my digital channels. This is a week ago after watching the Michael Jackson memorial. I'm left with analogue channels only and nothing else. I still have an old television which is an analogue not a digital television that doesn't have any audio ins or outs. Instead I'm utilizing a video for the ins and outs which is a very good quality LG player. This is placed on top of the dvd player. I've had no problems till now, it's been great. No problems with reception or antenna issues. What's happening? I have to re-program all my settings again as I've done nothing other than turn it on and notice programmed info missing. Television guide also gone. Things were fine till now. Let me know. Seb
It may well be that the tuner has failed internally on the unit and it will have to go for service repair.
However - first I want you to disconnect all power from the unit - remove the power lead from the back of the unit if it has a plug in connection. Leave the unit disconnected for at least 30 seconds then reconnect and let me know that happens.
Whilst you are doing this you should check that your antenna connection is tight - remove and replace it and check that there is no short in the connector - digital signals are very prone to signal shorts whereas analogue signals can overcome these to a much larger extent.
If this helps please remember to rate my answer - if not post up a comment and I will continue to troubleshoot the issue - Many thanks.
