Panasonic HDD/DVD recorder Model DMR EX75EB

Every now and then my recorder displays U80. If this occurs when the machine is set for timer recording it fails to start. Has anyone any idea how I can stop this happening?

Loads on google but this reply is worrying
Thanks for your replies. I emailed Panasonic yesterday and have received this reply.

"Thank you for your e-mail enquiry. We are sorry to learn of the difficulties that you have experienced.

To clarify, the U80 that has been displayed is a self-diagnostic fault code, requiring attention by a qualified engineer. This is not an inherent fault with the product but a guide for the engineer to know where, within the product, he should seek the cause of the problem.

We suggest that the product is submitted to either your retailer or to an authorised service agent for attention. Those in your local area can be found through our website:

Not the most helpful of messages I feel! I wonder if I leave it, will more problems occur?:
