display shows Ft1 and stops

Ferguson F20320DTR Digiatl recorder When powering up, the display shows Ft1 and stops. Is this terminal? Do I need to buy a new recorder?

Hi Robert,

I have not seen this error before myself but have done a little internet research.

I think the F20320DTR may be based on the same electronics as some Hitachi DTRs and they appear to also produce the "FT 1" error. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t11060234-hitachi_digital_tv_recorder_hdr_model . In that case the error cleared itself after being turned off and on a few times and so obviously was not a terminal error message in that case. Worth a try.

I suspect it could be a problem with the power supply.

Let me know how you get on,
Stuart
