Question about Panasonic DMR-EX75EB-S DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

Error U80 I have had the set about two years. When used as a digital turner for my old TV it often goes blank and shows 'Error U80'. If I switch it off and back on again it soon retunes and returns to normal. Any ideas?

    Have similar problem with DMR-EX75 purchased in 2006:

    (1) When watching digital TV screen goes yellow or pink (!) and Error Code U80 appears on the display.

    (2) When set to repeat recordings after one or two weeks nothing is recorded (although plenty of space in hard drive) and same error code U80 appears on the display.

    Yep, I have the same fault. It's happened before randomly, but tonight twice in an hour, hence the search! It's also a couple of years old.

    And my set is approx two years old and this to is reading a U80 fault code (not listed in operating instructions) and switches off - very very enoying if you have set to record Top Gear and come home to find it off with no recording !!!



    Can anyone help please ?

So i will be contacting Panasonic shortly.

    Sorry to say that I have exactly the same problem with my unit which is also about two years old. From being an occasional issue this has recently become more regular.

    I have a Pana DMR-EX75 DVD/hard disk recorder, about two years old. I have been getting U80 error accompanied by a green or pink or white (depending what mood it's in) screen for some time now. It seems to be very common judging by the entries on different forums. I did find this on howtomendit.com:
    "According to panasonic who are looking at my unit with the same fault it is a hang up due to the high number of different frequencies used by broadcasters in our area. They have carried out a firmware update (just because one was avail according to the tech) but the main fix will be available as a software update from mon 18th dec 2006. This is a broadcast signal and is applied by doing a full reset and retune on the unit."
    I'm off to try this on mine now but I am becoming disillusioned with Panasonic's reliability - had a Pana TV which lasted all of 4 years before it developed a power fault which could not be repaired. My previous Pana TV & VCR lasted over 10 years.

Hi all smilerand here, an update

Although my unit had a new drive fitted paid for by panasonic. This did not solve the problem. It turned out to be a back end printed circuit board(PCB), which panasonic paid the costs of.
So this PCB could be the problem with all your units if this is any help

The tv is at least 17 years old.The blinking red light blinks 5 times ,then the tv picture goes off . The voice is still on


Five blinks is the error code for an AKB (auto kine bias) error. What this means is that the set isn't able to balance the three color guns (red, green and blue) of the picture tube properly, and it's blanking out the screen.

To get the proper colors, the signals for the three colors need to be balanced, and Sony sets have circuitry to do this automatically. Other brands don't, and when they go out of balance you see a picture that starts to show tinting or colors that are off. As the picture tube ages, it gets harder to adjust the balance until finally the AKB circuit can't anymore, and poof, the picture goes away. With a 17-year-old tube, it's not surprising.

There isn't anything that can be done to fix the picture tube, it would need to be replaced. But the cost of the tube and the work required to get it set up after installation makes it completely uneconomical to repair this TV. A new picture tube is nearly $200. Then special tools are required to set the tube up (a process called convergence), so you'd need to find someone to put it in, and possibly pay to have the old one disposed of. A new 32-inch LCD set is around $350 now. Treat yourself to a new one.

DMR-EX75B - tuning gone with clock


Check that C1801 is not leaky. If so, check if IC1801 has blown. If it has blown, it will also need to be replaced.


Usually it's only C1801 leaky, replace it and thats it.


You can find the capacitor on the main board, under the digital board that has ribbon cables going to the dvd drive.

Hope this helps.

HDTV Turner


If your set has HD on it means set is HD Ready and you do not need Converter Box even if your only signal is coming from an antenna. Either a TV has HD or it Does not! And NO you cannot buy Parts to make your set HD.

My dvd recorder DMR-EZ45VEBS COME UP ERROR CODE U80


I get this too, and a little research brought me lots of anecdotes but nothing concrete, but here's was I deduce from the stories...

The unit has an auto-scan feature that periodically checks for new services or channels. Sometimes when it adds one it encounters and error and hangs showing U80. When you're recording it seems the auto-scan doesn't interrupt, so your program will complete. I've had several failures of timed recordings when the unit has stalled before recording was due to start.

Try switching the auto-scan off...

Functions > Others > Display > New service message

Hoepfully that will resolve it, though you will need to manually scan for new services periodically to make sure you don't miss out. At least you'll be on hand if it fails so it won't sit showing U80 for hours!

Dual toner card


You will have to install each tv turner software not different folder in the program files folder.

During the installation of the drivers and software you will be prompted with the directory where the software will be installed, on this page you should select say for eg:

for the first tv turner card C:\program files\ hp tv turner
for the second tv turner card say c:\program files \hp tv turner 2

this should be done for every directory mentioned during the installation.
other wise both the card will try to use the same driver and software files, there will be a clash, thus one one tv turner card will be viewed.
