Z1 Hours Report

Hi
I bought a Z1 last July and have been using it quite happily ever since.
That was until yesterday!
I came back a captured some footage - work experience dance shoot - and fallout all over the place!
I cleaned the heads - 10 secs and tried again.
Changed the tape and tried again.
Oh no! No joy.
Luckily I am still within the 2 years silver cover thingy so Sony will pick it up sort it out and I'll be back in business.
I must say that i used the head cleaning tape once a few months ago when a saw a tiny little spec of fallout but apart from that nothing has gone wrong at all with anything else.
These are the hours useage

Operation 50X10
Drum 36x10
Tape Run 28x10
Threading 57x10

What I want to know is what on earth do these things mean exactly?
I can hazard a guess but I would like to know precisely.
Also is this a good run before it needing some attention? I feel like I've really hammered it over the last 15 months and feel pretty good about the machine.
What do people think?
Cheers
Mat

This is an old thread about the PD-150, but I think it will answer your questions about the format of the display:
