Hi, Can someone help. I have a panasonic E55 ,bought as a christmas present . I am not technically minded . my son set it up for us (me and hubby).Well we have been using it since christmas with no problems . I use it just like a video recorder. I record programmes and erase them when i have watched them using ram discs. It is now the beginning of april and it seems to be playing up, when i put a disc in it wont read it or it reads it and gives me an error message of unformat. Why does it do this when i have been using the discs since christmas. Some discs which i have recorded on are okay, and also sometimes when i try to erase a programme it says it is not possible . Could it be that it needs cleaning but in the manual it says it might need cleaning after about a year. I am using panasonic ram discs. Thanks in advance to anyone who help..
