I am not trying to repair the machine myself. I would like to know the nearest Samsung service technician.I live in Perth. Western Australia.In an Airforce estate. I am an ex Fighter and bomber pilot from WW2. I'll be 88 next month but still mentally sharp as ever.I wonder if it would be better to buy a new unit. I have many Cassettes and don't know if combined DVD and VCR units are still made. Perhaps you could advise me . Regards John
