Panansonic DMR-EH57 DVD recorder owned since new. This morning it has decided that the DVD drawer is not to stay closed. With or without a disc in place, it returns to DVD drawer open, even whilst flashing 'Please Wait' after pressing the On/Off button. Have pulled the power for 10 minutes at a time, but no change. Seems electronic as all DVD button & menu options are not accessible. Does my three year old son have something to do with this? Any suggestions please.

I sent an e-mail to Panasonic New Zealand to ask about this, and they advised: "Panasonic NZ no longer pre set DVD recorders or players
for all region multi-zones.However, we will multi-zone for all
regions on request.This needs to be done by an
Authorised Service Centre, as a special service remote is
used.Once delivered to one of these

If you're not in NZ, try contacting Panasonic in your own country. Just call up www.panasonic with your country code after eg. US = .com and NZ = .co.nz.
