My Panasonic dmr-e30, which, up untill now has been hassle free, has all of a sudden started playing up. The problem I have is with my ram discs. When I put either a caddied or caddyless disc in, the machine starts making some teribble noises from, I think, spinning them in trying to read the disc. Which it fails to do. I can still play normal pre bought dvd's and dvd's I have made on the e30. I can set the timer using any disc and when it starts it make this god awfull noise in starting up. It won't record anything but on the timer screen it will read what disc space I have left. I have sent a couple of disc's to my brother to try in his e50 and I hope he will get back to me this afternoon. Anybody come across similar problems and what did you do to resolve it? The e30 is still under it's 1 year guarentee and I plan to take it back to Comet tomorrow. Can anybody tell me what my rights are regarding returned goods? Am I entitled to demand a refund, replacement or do I have to wait for Comet to check and repair it? After all, it's only 11 months old and if it has to be repaired do I get another 12 months cover or just on the part that gets mended? Also, if it has to be replaced, does the fact that I paid 400 quid for it mean I can choose goods up to the same value? A lot of questions, I know, but any help will be appreciated.
