SOURCE: need help

I have the same model, i pressed Function key(on remote), enter, using up and down arrow keys, select Setup, Remote control code, press 1,2 or 3, then enter. The code on the unit has been set. You must use the same code for the remote control by pressing enter and hold for about 2 seconds at the same time pressing corresponding 1,2 or 3 you selected for unit. This makes the unit and remote compatible with each other. you only change this code if you have other panasonic products that respond to this same remote control. hope that helps.

SOURCE: WHEN I TRY TO USE

I called tech support and their answer was simple!

Error Code U30 1.......the fix, press and hold the number one (1) on your remote and at the same time press and hold the ENTER button for 10 seconds while pointing the remote at the units sensor.

Automatically, my unit returned to normal and all my buttons on my remote returned to operational mode!

So, it was confirmed by Vincent at Panasonics tech support, that error codes U30's are rare, but it's a system safety feature. If you were to come across an error U30 2, you would push and hold the number 2 while pressing and holding down the ENTER button....so on and so forth.

I hope this helps someone else out there!

Is the Remote Control sensor in direct fluorescent lamp light or other strong
sources of light?
Press unit POWER button down over 7 seconds. The POWER indicator goes
out. If the Power was On, the screen will also disappear. After 5 seconds, turn
Power On and operate unit normally. If the steps above do not restore normal
operation, disconnect then reconnect the AC plug and turn the power On.

If that does not work, Panasonic offers free tech support 6 days a week 1-800-211-7262 (pana).

This would suggest the disc is defective, especially when all others work. I would return the other.

My dmr-es35v wont read or play disc.


Short answer: faulty DVD-RAM drive - these drives were notorious for high failures, particularly within their laser/traverse assemblies. The bad news is these cannot be repaired at individual component level; the entire drive must be replaced. soak-tested and its firmware updated by a qualified technician in a fully equipped service centre. The only other problem with that is the cost; being as this unit is now 5 years old, it's probably not economical to repair, as the cost of such would be close to or even exceed the original retail price. I do not recommend that you attempt to service the drive yourself, even if you have experience, in case something goes wrong.

However, if you don't feel comfortable inspecting it yourself, you can submit your unit to the abovementioned service centre, obtain a quote, and a second opinion (on the nature of the problems and what's involved) before going any further. Up to you, but save yourself the agony of expensive labour costs, along with the cost of a new DVD drive (because it is a recorder not just a player - the drive can cost anywhere between $150 - $450 plus fitting) and consider a new unit (DMR-EZ48V or its variation is a good choice as these have a built in SD digital tuner - the DMR-ES35V does not), whenever you can. If the VCR still works in your existing unit, keep it as a VCR, and if you really want a DVD recorder, consider alternative options/models which have features your existing unit doesn't rather than spending money on expensive workshop repair which, while they might guarantee the work done, is not as reliable as a new unit with extended manufacturer warranty.

The NoREAD and/or U61 error with the DVD-RAM drive is a common fault with this model. In many cases, the cost of a workshop service on something like this vs. new product retail price can be significant.

There is no need to waste hard-earned money on unnecessary repairs to products you love when it might be cheaper to simply buy a new one with more features and better warranties.

My Panasonic dmr-es35v has decided to cease recording, and makes loud grinding noises, any ideas, reset?


You can try a reset, but I doubt it would do much good. The loud grinding noises and failure to record sound to me like the DVD-RAM drive has had it. This sadly is not a cheap part to replace, and there's the issue of fitting/alignment/firmware upgrade etc.

Uneconomical for a model that is over 4 years old (since it has no digital tuner).

However, if you are prepared to spend a small fortune on a workshop repair/replacement DVD drive, go ahead, but I warn you it could cost as much as, if not more than the price of a new VHS/DVD recorder combo unit.
