    Apologies if this has been posted before but a quick search threw up no matches.

    Ever since late last night the recording indicator led on the front of my V2 Amstrad box has been lit, despite the fact that I am not recording anything.

    Is there a known cure for this that won't lose any of my saved programmes or should I watch everything and then do some form of reset ?
    It doesn't appear to be affecting anything else, though I have not recorded anything today.....

    :thumbsup:

    Have you tried doing a reboot? Just unplug it from the mains and leave it for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and leave it for at least two minutes, don't even press any buttons on the remote.Switch it back on and see if the problem persists. If it does you will have to try a full system reset, but this will wipe the hard drive.

    The leaving it unplugged from the mains for ages seems to have worked.
    I should have thought to try the most obvious thing first but the cynic in me had other ideas..lol.

    Cheers.

    It's a known "bug". If you start a new recording and then cancel it, the lamp should go out.
