Hi,

The problem indicates a power supply issue. There are two capacitors that fail in the power supply (the power supply is located under the hard drive holding bracket). You can observe the failed capacitors because they will be appearing slightly bloated, with a slight leakage of substance on the top. By replacing them with spares de-soldered from a functioning but useless electronic device, you can completely restore your unit. The "Please Wait" message is caused by the hard drive not spinning up. The issue was that the power supply was not delivering the proper power to the hard drive. Don't replace your hard drive, you will lose your recordings. Test the power first. If you dont have a good knowledge on fixing this issue then you can get your unit fixed for a flat rate of $130 by Panasonic. There is a special number to call:
1-888-439-2676 1-847-468-5543


Thank you !!

You need custom firmware to play backups and if you have custom firmware they go into the ISO folder in your memory stick.
