Question about Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD Recorder
I have had this unit for a few years. It's a great machine, but last week it did something that it's never done before. I had left it recording a program to the HD while i went to work. I had done this many, many times before with no problems. But when I came home this time the machine was turned off. I went to turn it back on and it looked like it was ready to come back on. The HD icon was "spinning" and then it just went right back into off mode. I tried again and again but to no avail. I tried switching from HDD to DVD but that doesn't help. I can hear what sounds like the HD spinning but then it just dies. I had thought that the four digits on the machine's LED were the time, but they are not. They look like a four digit code of some kind. It's not always the same, either. Last night it went to 5542. This morning it was some number in the 7000s. Any ideas what's going on?
Also, before I take this thing in for service, I have a DVD in the drive. Is there any way to force that drive open so I can get that DVD? I need to return it to the store before they try to make me buy it and I don't trust the repair shop to keep it safe for me (and, I'm running out of time on the rental).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Try holding the power on/off button for about 15 sec to power off completely, then push the DVD button. that may work.
