Yes the red R was on, but it still appeared in the center of the screen. I actually had to ship my camera to Panasonic and they reprogrammed the time stamp to appear at the bottom of the screen Thank you for your response
I bought a Panasonic AC-AG160 and ran into the issue of the timestamp appearing in the center of the frame. This issue has come up on other forums, and here as well, but I'm not able to get the exact info I need to fix the issue. I even found a thread from 2011 where a Panasonic phone number was included where you could send your camera and they would fix the issue. Does anyone have any updated info for fixing this issue? Thanks in advance.
