Got a call to go out on a TVS 200. They say the recordings began breaking up last week.

It's been a long time since I worked on a TVS and suspect the hard drive is going out.but what do you guys think?

If it IS the drive is there a way to back up and restore new one or will this be a scratch build?

I have a feeling this will changing out to a TVA though.

BTW. In case anyone ever wondered why Panasonic suddenly pulled the TVS150 off the product line, it was ME.
VERY expensive lesson for both me AND Panasonic.
