You can try to reset the unit to factory defaults (you may require the
user manual for this) or you can try to reprogram the remote to match
the 'MODE3' or 'DVD3' display on the unit itself.
While the unit is on, point the remote at it, press and hold both the
 button and [ENTER/OK] button - TOGETHER for 5 to 10 seconds, then
release. Should work. Failing that, refer to the user manual for
resetting the unit to factory defaults (if possible without the remote) -
this manual should be available from the Panasonic website as a pdf. - free.
Try the above suggested step with the remote first. Hope this helps a tiny bit.
You can try changing the command mode of the (genuine Panasonic) remote itself, press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] and the number [ 3 ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Then try the remote with the unit. If it still shows DVD 3 on its display, no matter which button is pressed, reset the main unit to factory default as outlined in the user manual (assuming this model recorder has a tuner, there would be channel buttons on the front - try pressing and holding [ CH/UP ] and [ CH/DOWN ] together - for 5 - 10 seconds, until 'SETUP' appears, then release). This may or may not restore your DVD unit to the default (DVD 1) command mode. (Don't forget to reset the remote back to DVD 1 if you do reset the main unit - press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] + the number [ 1 ] button together as above).
Your new remote may be set to DVD 1 by default while your unit is DVD 3 = different remote command modes.
You could try Changing the Remote Control code for your DVD recorder. If you have more than one Panasonic device, there's an option to give each device its own Remote Control code. The Default is DVD1. So for FixMick, it sounds like someone may have changed the Remote Control code on your machine to DVD3. For Dador, someone may have changed the Code to DVD1. So you'll need to change the Code on either the device or the Remote to make them match up (see page 19 of the DMR-EH65 Users Manual ... you can download it from the Panasonic website)
Sorry FixMick. I don't know why your display isn't working.
Thank you for your support. I have solved the problem on my DVD Recorder by reading other peoples solutions to this problem. My DVD display was showing DVD3 and all buttons would not work. So on the handset I pressed the ENTER/OK button and no. 3 button together for a few seconds, this cleared DVD3. I was so pleased that this worked. croneruk, 6/10/2008
i,ll try my best.
The best suggestion i have is 1:) take the batterys out of the remote, and leave out for about 12 hours. this should reset to factory-default.
also power off the dvd player. unplug and then replug in and setup again.
Finally try changing the tv output selection. i,e scart/aux/av et,c.
I have a panasonic dvd recorder. Model dmr-ex87
I was going through the options for the remote control and i selected dvd 3..Well this has caused problems as the remote only displays dvd3 when you press any buttons on the remote. How can i get it back on dvd1??
