    I've had my fair share of grief with this recorder over the last couple of months, but managed to get most quirks sorted out.

    The other night, the front panel display flickered for a minute or two and since then has vanished, all other functions though work, playback recording etc.

    Is there anything I've missed, perhaps in setup, any help would be appreciated?

    The machine is still under guarantee.

    thanks,

    William

    There are 2 settings which control the display in the System Menu - Standby and Display.

    Display could be set to Low Power or Display could be Off

    Hi JefUK,

    Many thanks for your reply, yes I saw that and all's as it should be in that department.

    I have the Display set to bright and the Standby set to normal.

    As I said previously, I did see some flickering of the display before it vanished, later returning after about two hours, only to dissapear again.

    Again thanks for your help.


    William

    Unfortunately then it looks as though its developed a fault.

    It's back on it's way to Philips, I found the damn menu thing quirky enough, but to loose the front panel display as well was the last straw.

    Thanks again JeffUK
