New to this forum thing, need some help.
Have my HS700 for over a year now, love it very much. Last weekend while videoing my son's basketball game, it came up with error message "error occurred. Please turn unit off, then turn on again".
I turned the unit off and on and I can 'playback' but when I turned to motion picture mode, it won't let me zoom or do anything, after 1 min, the same error message came up. I tried switch it to using the sd card but that didnt help. same error.
I then went back to playback mode and deleted the videos. even went as far as reformatted it. format went well but same error again when videoing.
I went looking for answers and purchased the service manual to seek more help. Tried to go into service mode as stated in the manual (zoom/IA/Menu keys for 3 secs) but that didnt work either.
so now I am seeking help from you experts. failing this I will send it to pana service centre which will definitely cost me a few hundred bucks. My wife will not be too happy with it I am sure.
