Customer Question
I have a Panasonic...

I have a Panasonic Tv coupled with a Pansonic DVD player DMR XW 385. Yesterday I used Setup on the TV for some New stations in our area MidCoast NSW. When I tried to setup the DVD player it wont work and says no stations are available. We checked the chords and the aerial is working other wise the TV wouldn't work. Any suggestions

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

DVD is DMR XW 385 .Approx 10 year +

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

24 hours checked chords and redo setup about 5-6 times.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?
