My Av500 crashes while recording!! Please help!!!

Post by oldsynth »

I have a problem that while I'm recording video, it very often freezes up and it will only turn off if I unplug the power cable. Can anybody please steer me in the right direction? Cheers in advance. Daz

First thing I would try is a dos checkdisk - this seems to work better than a windows check sometimes. If that does not help next step backup all your stuff and format the hard drive, the file allocation table can corrupt beyond a checkdisk fix, if that does not help reinstall the firmware as last resort, sometimes it can corrupt. If none of that helps most likely a hardware fault.
