Panasonic DMR EX77 or EX87 new Firmware.

Hi. I am having no luck with Panasonic sending me out a copy of the latest firmware for my EX77. It seems they were happy about doing it a year ago but no longer. I only have version v1.06 and it is known at least v1.11 is available. I have black bars at bottom of screen and the new firmware fixes this.
Can anyone please email a copy of the firmware or share a link to download.
many thanks in advance.

I had the same problem. Have you programmed automatic recordings? If so, this stops the player from playing different region codes to the ones set in the automatic program list. If you remove all programmed recordings, the player will play the different region code automatically. Not an ideal setup.

I know that this is what you do on a different one, please let me know if it doesn't work

Try this to unlock it to be region-free:

1) make sure you don´t have any DVD inserted and have Door Closed
2) IN remote control :
3) press SETUP
4) IN the Front Panel :
5) press NEXT
6) press STOP
7) press PAUSE/STEP
8) press PREV
9) press NEXT

You should now see a new MENU. Go to Select Region and make your choice:
- region 1
- region 2
- region 3
- region 4
- region 5
- region 6
- By Pass

Select ByPass and you're sweet. Not sure if it'll work with yours but it's worth a go.

Let me know what happens, good luck and have a good day

You can probably fix this issue by updating the firmware and doing a system reset. First, download the latest firmware and burn it to a CD. You can download it from here:

Now, power the unit down, press Skip/Rev + Time Slip + Open/Close for 5 seconds. The CDR should be in the disc drive as you do this. This will install the new firmware and re-initialize the system settings.

The complete manual is here:

My record change from DMR-E55PL-S (South America model) to DMR-E55P (USA model)


You can get a special remote controller that has a built in hack that will turn your DMR E55 into a multi region player. In the UK these are available to hire from the following website. You do not need to open your unit, just press a few buttons on the controller.

Follow the instructions exactly to the letter.

Please note, if you have purchased a new DMR E55, this upgrade may invalidate your guarantee.

Hope this helps
