Unit care
HDD/USB HDD handling care
When moving the unit
• The HDD is a high precision device
The HDD is a high precision recording
instrument and is easily susceptible to damage.
Therefore, be careful of the following points
while the unit is turned on, especially during
operation, otherwise the HDD and the recorded
content may be damaged:
- Do not subject the unit to any vibration and
shock.
- Do not remove the AC mains lead from the
household mains socket.
Before moving the unit, ensure the disc tray is
empty.
1 Switch the unit to standby mode. (Wait until
“Goodbye” disappears from the display.)
2 Remove the AC mains lead from the
household mains socket.
3 Move only after the unit has come to a
complete stop (approx. 3 minutes) in order to
avoid subjecting to vibration and shock. (Even
after the unit is switched to standby mode, the
HDD continues operating for a short time.)
• The HDD is a temporary storage device
• The HDD is not an everlasting storage device.
It is recommended to save the recorded
content on a disc or to keep the original data or
CDs that they were copied from.
• If you notice a problem with the HDD such as
repetitive strange sounds, immediately save
(backup) all content and request service. If you
continue using the HDD with a problem, the
unit or the recorded content will be damaged.
• If the HDD or USB HDD is damaged, the
recorded content cannot be recovered.
Setup precautions
• Place the unit on a surface that is flat and
not subject to vibration or impact.
• Do not place on anything that generates heat
like a Set Top Box, etc.
• Place in an area where condensation does
not occur. Conditions where condensation
may occur
- When there is an extreme change in
temperature (e.g., when subjected to an air
conditioner or when cooled air directly impacts
the unit).
- When there is high humidity or a lot of steam
in the room.
In the above situation, without turning the unit
on, let the unit adjust to the room temperature
and wait 2–3 hours until condensation is gone.
• The unit may breakdown if cigarette smoke
or bug spray/vapour, etc. gets inside the
unit.

unit’s lens.
Lens cleaner: RP-CL720AE
• This lens cleaner may not be available for
sale in all countries, e.g. not available in
Germany, please consult your Panasonic
dealer for advice.
When requesting this unit for repair
The registration of the USB HDD may be
cancelled in the process of repairing this unit.

• Recording time of DR mode may vary depending on the bit rate of broadcasting:
• High Definition (HD) quality: estimated bit rate is 14 Mbps
• Standard Definition (SD) quality: estimated bit rate is 5 Mbps
• Regarding recording time remaining:
Remaining time in the DR mode is calculated with a bit rate of 14 Mbps. But the bit rate differs
depending on the broadcast, so the displayed remaining time might be different from the actual
remaining time.
