Sharp Digital Recorder

Hi, I have a TU-TV502H Sharp Digital Recorder, it has decided, as from 2330 tonight, not to give me any program info, has cancelled all my series links & looks to be giving up on life. Can anyone tell me please, what's going on. PS, we have had this unit for several years, it has about 60% free space on the hard drive, so this is not making any sense.

Have you tried a retune from the first setup menu?

Once you get the TV guide back you will need to rest your recordings nd series links.

Hi, yes have retuned, programs are all there but no tv guide info is showing.

Not just a retune but a new install

Try Format the Drive

formatting the drive will not bring back the program guide and will lose you recordings.

Not sure if this is for your box but worth a try
