Customer Question

Have a model No. DMR-EZ485 DVD recorder purchased in 2012. It was working fine until now. Don't know if I pushed the wrong key but when I try to record I get a snowy screen. Can you assist?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: The make is Panasonic, model DMR-EZ485V purchased in 2012.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Just started the other day. It seems when I try to program the channel for Ch. 2-1 it shows only ch. 2.
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: no

Are you seeing snow on the tv screen "live", or when trying to play back the recording?
