Panasonic VHS/DVD recorder player
on 4 November 2013
Have two of these machines, one from Amazon and one from local agent, and previously have only had good reliable equipment from Panasonic, however, both recorder/players have been disasters. Their software has been re-loaded and updated twice but they both stop without reason and one has now frozen so no access to a tape or a DVD that are inside. Needless to say the supplier has never seen these problems before. The most annoying aspect is that if attempting to record a late night programme, with a new empty disk to record to, with plenty of space, and set up according to the handbook instructions, the programme is either only half recorded or the machine freezes after a few seconds of recording. Have had a techie friend go over things to ensure no silly mistakes were being made and then the same thing happened to him.
I felt vindicated but very annoyed when the supplier took it away and had the same thing happen to him, allegedly the manufacturer has never seen the problem before!
