    Anyone else see occasionally after ff or rewinding the blue light ring has problems getting back to being fully lit. like parts of it will be lit, then it looks like it is struggling to light the rest of the ring. also when this happens the power light will blink on and off occasionally until u resart the unit. everything else works fine while this is happening though.

    Nope... just turn the ring lights off they are too bright anyway!

    Sorry, I'm no help here. I turn the blue ring off. That way when a NR or a involuntary reboot happens, I know.

    I usually leave my blue ring set to its minimum brightness. I have never observed the problem you're seeing, Greg.

    Yesterday, I noticed the blue ring would be lit up all the way and then slowly dim to no light and then be all lit up again. Did a reboot and now it's fine. Maybe I'll just turn the lights off also.

    Well, mine is only lit in one corner when on or off and the whole thing flashes quickly once when turning it on or off. All the buttons on the panel no longer work either, (including the recording light). Reboot does nothing.

    Unfortunately this HR20-100 is going to have to be returned in the coming weeks. Poor camper, it works pretty darn good other than this!

    it's only done it twice in the 2months i've had it.. so no big deal. and no i'm not gonna turn it off. i have it on the dimmest setting. i like the look. plus if u read my post it's just not the blue ring. once the blue ring starts having problems then the power lights starts blinking as well. everything else works fine though.

    My brand new unit exhibited this behavior. A reboot seems to make it better.

    Only when I pause something.
