To get into the service mode

While the power is off, press TIME SLIP, STOP and OPEN / CLOSE simultaneously for five seconds.


On the remote, press 0-2 and it will show the ROM version, region code, hard drive?

6-4:

The last time I had a U99 I tried entering service mode. No go, it powered up the unit and ran the self check first, ending in U99 again.


But, the service tech who fixed my machine once claimed that it did work. I got my machine back with all recording intact.


What other things can one do in service mode ?
