    After forced powering off the device it won't boot past displaying "Power On" and continually resets from there.

    Is there a power on key combination that resets the device or some other way to reset it without having to successfully boot?

    I have had this device 1 day and already it is proving itself to be little more than a doorstop. What are people's experiences with this model?

    If only my Topfield had a DVD burner...

    Is it new? Get it replaced, or a refund. I've helped a mate set up a 720 and I have a 520 myself. With no such (or any other) problems.

    Bought yesterday, so yes, brand new.

    Will be ringing Pioneer tomorrow morning.

    Was hoping there might be a quick fix.

    Try this (p 112 of manual):

    1 Make sure that the recorder is on.
    2 Press and hold STOP and press STANDBY/ON

    The recorder turns off with all settings reset.

    Your contract is with the retailer, not Pioneer. The responsibility to remedy your problem if it is faulty equipment) lies 100% with the retailer. Not with Pioneer.

    Alas, no. Must be differences between models as no mention of this in my manual, just the forced power off. Holding STOP activates the child lock on mine.

    Yes, I meant for support, as their web site is severely lacking.

    I suspect they will tell me the same thing and I am just not looking forward to dealing with the retailer :(

    Wish me luck.
