Can someone, anyone please help me get a firmware file for the Panasonic DMR-EZ48V model.
I hadn't used my machine for a few months, hardly used anyway, and when I plugged it back in, all it does it eject the tray and requests a firmware disc!! The message "LD FVD" appears on the display. How poor a product is this if it loses the firmware for no reason whatsoever!?
After contacting Panasonic Australia repeatedly, all they offered was the generic spiel - send it in for repair. No attempt to analyse or ask questions either. Frankly, I don't intend to spend another cent on this auto-faulting box and would in all honesty rather throw it in the bin.
I have looked around for the firmware and found other Pana site that DO offer firmware for their variations of this model, but Aus don't/won't. More searching found a few dead links that at least briefly gave me false hope though ;(.
Really Panasonic, ALL I'M ASKING FOR is a ~5MB firmware file to burn to revive the thing. I have nothing to lose, and neither do you.
I'm looking for the AUS firmware for PAL/NTSC functionality, though UK firmware should be close enough assuming the machine allows foreign model firmware to run. I'm willing to try anyway.
Can someone, anyone please, please, please please help me find this firmware file? Any help would be greatly appreciated! (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish)
