Customer Question
My older Panasonic has...

My older Panasonic has suddenly switched to VP as a default. It has been EP up until the other day. I would like the default to be EP so I can play the cassette on other VHS players.

Technician's Assistant: Who makes your media player? How old is it?

Panasonic around 10 years old

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Panasonic media player?

Unplugging the machine and also going back to default

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
