Question about Panasonic DVD-S47 DVD Player

2 Answers

Panasonic DVD-S47 Every time I load a disc, it automatically starts playing the disk rather than going to the menu, in addition, once the disc starts to play FT NG appears on the screen & the remote control will only work once, once I press fast forward it will not stop & I have to unplug the powersupply from the back to free it up. Any solutions out there???

No, this isn't a problem with the player. Every other player I have that plays DVD's recorded with the Samsung all auto-play. The problem is with the Samsung and how it records DVD's.

There are DVD players that have a feature that automatically skips the menu and plays the largest title on the disc (typically the movie). It's usually not an advertised feature. maybe pressing "play mode" on the remote can fix that. Since you're having more problems, it will probably take more then disabling that feature, or you might be looking at 2 separate issues. What happens if you take the battery out of the remote? does that stop it? and what happens when you press FF on the player itself? this should tell you if the problem is specificaly with the remote, or with the player itself. Best thing to do though is use the warranty if its still valid, or consult the shop on repair options. Good luck

I got a new machine, when I transfer from VHS to DVD-R it records, but will only play on the machine I recorded on, it doesn't load on other DVD players, why is that?


You need to FINALIZE the DVD-R you recorded in that unit for it to be playable on other DVD players. This function should be part of the on-screen menu for your unit. (in Panasonic DVD recorders, it's under DVD MANAGEMENT in the FUNCTIONS menu).

If the disc you recorded is already loaded, but stopped, press SETUP on your remote - an on screen menu should appear.

Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys, select DVD MENU and press ENTER. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys again to select FINALIZE and press ENTER.

A message box will popup 'Finalize disc?' use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select YES then press ENTER. Finalizing should start and may take a while to complete.

Once complete, the disc is now playable on other DVD players. (from page 32 of the owners manual with the heading 'PLAYING THE DISCS IN OTHER DVD PLAYERS')

I can't find my remote and I want my cd's to play over and over. I don't care about the order. I just don't want to have to get up and push play after each cd is finished playing. What can...


Not much you can do without a remote for this model except play 1 disc (CD or DVD) manually at a time. You could try to obtain a replacement of the original remote directly from Panasonic, or you can look again for your lost one in your home, or you can try a (cheaper) universal remote with this unit. The cost depends on what type of remote you get and where you buy it from (if you order through Panasonic there may be an additional shipping charge). Sequential play (one disc after the other automatically) usually can only be set using the remote.

The fact is, this player needs a remote for full functionality If you want random/sequential play for multi discs, the original Panasonic remote is required - try ordering this first if it is available. If not, then consider a universal. (you could also look on eBay for a similar DVD player remote for this model)

New Sharp BD-HP16U won't play Blu Ray Discs


You need to force the player to the the Top Menu of the disc.
The way to do this is: load disc, wait until it says "Reading Completed" (about 1 minute).

Wait for the PLAY icon ">" to show in the upper right corner (this may take up to 30-40 secs).

Once you see the ">" Hit the STOP button on the remote to get to the player's splash screen.

From the Sharp splash screen Hit the "Top Menu/Title List" button on the remote and wait for the circulating dots and then the disc menu appears.
Play the movie from the menu and you should be good to go.

Panasonic dvr d 200 hand camera - the recorded disc doesn't play on regular dvd player


First I must say I have different camera, but in my case I must close the disc session from camera menu, so theat after it dvd could be played in dvd players and after it you can't record on that disk anymore. If you alredy know that, then sorry. I have a problem that some non-scratched in any way disks with data just don't respond at all, but that's another story. All the best.
