Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

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

Maybe you guys can help me, I do not really know what to do! I recently downloaded the firmware for the model DMR-E55P from PANASONIC.COM (USA), to fix bugs about DVD medias reading, but my model is DMR-E55PL-S (Region-4 / Tuner PAL-M). I have contacted PANASONIC from Brazil, but they told me to send my recorder to the factory - It'll be to much expensive comparing the price of a new one. How can I do a downgrade and reinstall the factory firmware for the model DMR-E55PL-S, recovering the lost PAL-M system color after the confuse upgrading? If you can tell me from where to download it or to send it by email to me, I really would apreciate. Sincerely, (Excuse me for my poor english)

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

Há algum tempo o meu Gravador de DVD de mesa Panasonic DMR-E55PL-S vinha apresentando a seguinte mensagem de erro sempre que eu clicava qualquer comando através do controle remoto: CHK REMOTE2 Havia entrado em contato com o técnico da autorizada Panasonic de Niterói e ele ficou devendo-me uma solução. Como possuo outros 3 gravadores de mesa (2 Pioneer e 1 Samsung R121), apesar da contrariedade, não esquentei muito a mufa. Hoje, porém, encasquetei, e resolvi tentar, mais uma vez, resolver a má função. Após "ene" tentativas malogradas pintou o insight: - "Cacildas! Se eu faço tanta pesquisa para dirimir as dúvidas dos companheiros, por que não o faço também, para mim"? Assim, digitei no "gluglu": CHK REMOTE2 Panasonic Entre outras dicas, saquei esta: Question: - "Whenever I press any button on my remote control, I get this error message on the front panel display - CHK REMOTE2" Answer: - "Just hold ENTER and press the number indicated on the display for a few seconds, and it will fix the issue". Basta clicar ENTER e pressionar o numero indicado no display do painel frontal do gravador por alguns segundos - isto resolverá o problema. (Clicar ENTER e pressionar o número 2 no controle remoto). Tal dica serviu para o meu DMR-E55PL-S como também para o DMR-E85HS - do **** "flashcode" - devendo servir para outros modelos Panasonic da mesma linha. Soçarba... Mr. Walker

DVD output from video camera is in Black and white

Did you check the device the camera plugs into to see if it could be the problem. The video input might be dropping the color burst signal.
