U81 error up Do I have to take it to a electrical repairer or is there anything i can do ?
I posted a suggestion a couple of months ago about a similar Panasonic DVD recorder (model DMR-EX78EB) with this exact problem:
This is one of several error codes generated by the main microprocessor IC which are
tripped by corruption, preventing proper operation and which may require the
processor to be reset (where practical) or replaced.
The U81 and
U80 codes don't
mean anything in particular because the corruption error(s) could be caused
by a number of different reasons. It does not point to any specific
one fault. This is where the confusion sets in as to the origin of the
'error codes' in any device.
U81 means (in technical terms)
'microprocessor communication malfunction' on the universal asynchronous
receiver/transmitter' or 'microprocessor feedback information error'.
This is not something the user should undertake to repair
themselves; it should really go to an authorised Panasonic repair centre. The
cost depends on the parts used and the labour, however, it is not
unfixable. You can always get a quote on this and a second opinion, then decide for yourself if it is economical or not.
DMR-EX series of models are prone to U81 - which is a common (and
extremely irritating) error code. As I said, it is not unfixable, if you
are prepared to spend a fair amount of money on the repairs by a
qualified service technician in a fully equipped workshop with access to
all the required components and service manuals.
Certainly worth investigating at least; and you should not need to purchase a new unit. Go with the quote first - then decide on a further course of action.
