Got one of these today and it just sees to have locked it's self up. After setting it up I tried a quick test record of the DVD and on pushing stop the menu came up saying that it was formatting/finalising or whatever...please wait. Well I waited for a lot longer than the "up to 7 minutes" the manual says and after 20 mins or so decided to unplug it from the mains as something had obviously gone wrong. On plugging it back in and switching it on all I get is a "Wait" message on the front display and three little flashing lines. This has been unchanged for about three hours now. I can switch it off and the TV view button works but nowt else. Anyone had anything similar happen with this or know what to do? Is it just a returner to the shop? Cheers. J.
