Thomson DV3 Digital Terrestrial Recorder

I have a Thomson DV3 which up to now has served well. I have many hours of
recordings which all play well, but now I have program recorded which when I attempt to play locks up the box completely and I have to unplug it and plug it back in to be able to operate it. It locks the box if I try to delete it as well.

Can anyone suggest a way to remove this rogue program ?

I think unfortunately this is a known problem. I have one of these too (bought 3 weeks ago off Ebay for £25! so far so good). If you check the reviews on Amazon and Ebuyer many say this.

Not sure what to do abut it though, sorry!

Hi m8

I had the same problem and it drove my bonkers!! This went away when I formatted the hard drive. Gimme a shout if you have difficulty with that and I will post the sequence of commands to get this done.

Please do post the sequence...I havent been able to use
the thing for 6 months due to this problem...

Does it retain the data that helps keep it working as in it's menu info etc...?
