The other night my Toppy was recording as instructed via a pre-set timer but the front panel showed the clock instead of the usual "rEC" display. A check showed that it was actually recording the correct programme.
I switched it off and a series of flashing dots appeared in the control panel before it shut down and the red light came on. I repeated this several times with the same result.
In the end I cured the problem by pulling the mains plug out for about 30 seconds.
Any idea what was going on?

I've had this partial crash (for that's what it appears to be) on the toppy before.
Maybe some program has hit or accessed some data area and overwritten data from another prog.?

I'm not sure because it happened whilst I was not working with it.

People, people....

A quick search of the site, particularly the FAQ section will tell you all you need.

Just search on "flashing dots" Very Happy
