Just spoke with panasonic customer service team and he said to unplug and wait :30 seconds and then let the system roboot (which should take no more than 2 mins).

If it doesn't fix (which ours did not) then it most likely is the hard drive which will need to be replaced. You'll have to send to Panasonic Digital Service Center, 410 B Airport Road, Elgin, IL 60123. Fee is $149.95 + $30 return shipping. Put your return shipping info and payment within the box. Hopefully that helps. We got 7 years out of ours until these problems just started.

IR Blaster Code for DirecTV D12-300 Satellite Receiver


After digging around for awhile, the only onfo I could gather was that teh D12 uses the same codes as the D10 & D11, but could not get those codes, I am still looking around and will post any other info I may aquire. I would also suggest re-trying any codes for echostar. I can tell you this as I sell that equipment in my market and echostar provides the equipment and support for techs, installers, and retailers. Anyway Good Luck for now

Yes, your hard drive has developed bad sectors. It will most likely need to be replaced. I am going through the same problem right now myself.

Cannot down TV Schedule


1. Press Menu on the remote. 2. Choose Setup from the menu. 3. Scroll to Connect to ReplayTV Service Now. 4. If you don't have this option try this. For ReplayTVs running older software: 1. First, exit any menus you're currently in. 2. Press "2-4-3" on the remote followed quickly by pressing the "Zones" button - this will launch an informational screen, with like a 1-Exit, 2-Clear the Channel, etc. 3. Select #7, 'Net Connect' from the menu. (#4 on ReplayTV 2000 or 3000 series). A message at the bottom of the tv screen will indicate a successful connection. If you are unable to force a connection using this method, you may need to reboot your unit. This is done by pressing and holding the "Power" button on the front of the unit for 10 seconds. (Note: When you hear the fan in the rear of the unit turn off, your unit is rebooting.) Now repeat the previous instructions to force a connection. This is all found on the support site: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/replaytv/document.asp?docID=87
