system never worked great on fr, but has over 100 hours of sucessful recording of timed , scheduled, etc. now no type of recording works. i press record , record lights up, but counter won't start. counter won't start on fr either, however , once it thinks it's recording it won't stop. i have to unplug it. tried every kind of re-boot. troubleshooting guide says recording could be disabled. any ideas? if so, how do you fix it? oops, meant dmr-es40v panasonic.
