Re: remote control not working
Try cleaning the leads that attaches the negative and positive side of the battery, is the product within warranty still? Please try pressing the panels button as well just to verify if its only the remote that you are having issue with. If your product is witihin the one year warranty, you can call the manufacturer for an accessory replacement.

Remote Controls don't go bad that easily. Liquid spills
or moisture under the rubber membranes will prevent
contacts being made whenever you push a button.
1. Try replacing new fresh batteries first.
2. Disassemble the Remote and clean both the board (PCB)
and the rubber membranes with a soft water/soap solution
3. Dry them and Re-assemble the unit
Either the remote itself is exhibiting strange behaviour, or the unit's IRD controller circuit (and/or the IRD itself) is faulty. Perhaps when you changed the batteries, the remote needs to be 're-commanded' (that means entering a remote code by pressing and holding 2 buttons together for 10 seconds - example - 1 + ENTER/OK) - this should be done whenever the batteries are replaced. If this does not restore the remote to full control, then the IRD (and/or its controller circuit) is the most likely suspect; or, worst case scenario; your remote is defective. I hope it isn't the latter.
I suggest you submit the unit to an authorised service centre for a quote (since this is not a disc drive replacement/alignment it shouldn't be too expensive) then you can decide for yourself afterwards as to what further action to take. Up to you, it is not unfixable. You can always ask Panasonic directly for straight answers and get a second opinion at the same time.
I hope you do not need a new remote at this stage.
If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.
Ok, sounds like you changed the batteries so asuming the repacements are good and the fact the remote stopped working all devices including the one it does not need programed for; I suspect the remote is the problem. I would check into getting a new remote.
hi does the controll have a button that says tv or vcr if so press the vcr button and try that if that dont solve the problem then make sure batterys are in right way and check the terminals are free from corrosion if this still dont work then the best thing to do is take the case off the remote and usually the problem is a build up of dust or grease on the board or on the back off buttons clean the board with dry cloth and clean the back of buttons remove any dust or grease from the board and buttons then put back together if this still dont work then you probably need new remote.
It will cost more than the remote to get repaired you can buy an all in one remote that will operate this for you let meknow how you get on ok
recently I also got same recorder and faced the same
problem with the remote controller.
today i tried to solve this. i opened it up. it turned
out the battery connections are not proper.
The battery connection are in the form of a spring
coil which touches the outerside of the battery which
is not touching properly. I bent and slight lift it with
a plier and it started working.
The other connection is touching front side of the
battery(on backside you see label cr2025 printed) and
this is alright. I hope it works for you too.
with best regards
