the playback quality of my panasonic NV-HS900 has been getting worse over the last year or so - it is now almost unwatchable (especially after viewing a digital source like the DVD). I have used a head cleaner in the past to no noticeable effect. Now it has started to throw error codes such as F-03 and F-04 which can sometimes be resolved by powering it down and back up again, but often involve removing the lid and putting a bit of slack into the tape. I have been considering getting it serviced, but don't really know who would be able to do this for me. should i drop it in the bin and get a new VHS player or is there life in the old dog yet? does anybody know anywhere in the merseyside vicinity where I can get it serviced?
