I'm having two problems with a Panasonic DMR-E75V VCR/DVD-R combo. 1. The unit shuts itself off within 1-2 min of being turned on. I think it's going into standby, but I have the auto-standby turned off. The manual says that either I have auto-standby on (which I do not), or one of the safety features has activated, and I should turn the unit back on using the power button on the deck itself (rather than the remote). Thing is, it provides no further info about said "Safety Features", nor does turning the system back on solve the problem; the system does the same thing in another minute or two. 2. This may be related to one. I cannot one-touch dub anything. I get a message saying "Copying of this material is prohibited". The manual says that this happens when I try to copy a copy-protected tape. Thing is, a few seconds of the material DOES record to the disc before this happens, and the source material is a non-commercial VHS tape. I'm at a loss.
