Hi,

I have a problem with my Panasonic TU DSB30 receiver.
It started a few weeks ago as the receiver switched itself off...by unplugging it and waiting a minute it would start as if everything was in order.
It is not now possible to turn the receiver on either with the remote or by pressing the switch.
I sent it to Panasonic in Hannover(Germany) for them to repair but they sent it back with a short note saying that i MUST sent it direct to Sky in the UK which is impossible as i watch Sky from Kiel in North Germany.


Thanks in advance

Send it to www.MCES.co.uk they will repair it for you, alternatively, it may be just as cheap to buy a replacement.

Hi Rolf,

Thanks for the info.. had a look at the M.C.E.S. Digital Services web page and i`ll Email to see what they think.

I`ve been looking at Ebay for similar units and they are auctioned between 50 to 80 + 25 pounds postage.

All of the Panasonic 30s are getting on a bit now, buying another one that hasn’t been repaired might simply postpone the problem for a while. It might be worthwhile looking for a newer model that is good for weak signal areas, the pace 2600 has good reputation for that.

Thanks for the tip PoloMint.. I`ll see what info i can find about the Pace 2600.

I also have a Grundig Digibox and the difference to the Pana is like night and day, with the Grundig it`s impossible to watch almost any programme...the picture breaks up sound problems etc.

Your Grundig may be suffering with a dodgy power supply, replacement part £16 or so from MCES. :)
