Customer Question
It's a Foster VF80EX...

It's a Foster VF80EX recorder. I'm getting an error message.. It says service 5 and self-check.

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact make and model of your machine?

Foster Digital Multitracker VF80EX.

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I simply unplugged it and moved it to another room and plugged it back in.

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

That's it.
