I've been running my HVX200 at work for about 10 months, and haven't had a problem till recently. I produce local government TV, Due to the length of the meetings I cover (sometimes up to 11 hours) I'm recording SD to the Firestore FS-100 and also to miniDV as a backup. But lately the tape transport controls will randomly blank out and not respond when I try to use them. Sometimes in the middle of taping it will stop the DV transport from recording, tell me that the tape is blank, and then fast forward all the way to the end of the tape. Also randomly the power will not turn off when I switch the power to off, and I have to physically disconnect the battery or AC adapter to actually turn the unit off.
Is anyone else experiencing these issues, and if so is there a known remedy?
