Check this link. I already rresponded to this problem before. You need some "soldering" to perfom. I already have the same problem twice, those slashes are typical sign for burnt out el. capacitors.

Panasonic SA HT1500 DVR recorder...cannot erase recorded programs.

On my DVR there is a "protect" option that will prevent me from deleting a recording. You have to press the "protect" button again to unprotect it.Once unprotected you should be able to delete the recording.

We recommend you remove all speaker cables and HDMI cables from the system. Then turn the system back on and see if the U99 message appears. If it does, then we recommend having the system evaluated by an authorized service center using the below link.

DVD RAM DRIVE does not recognize any contents on recorder DVDs.

First, one correction. Panasonic website for parts asks $437 plus tax and shipping for replacement part for PANSONIC SA-HT1500 dvd recorder.

My solution. I opened the box and unplug and plug back cable with black tape going to HDD, and tighten cable near DVD-RAM drive. I closed the unit, connected as before, and whooala, everything is back in normal. Apparently, so connections loose over time.
So, for now, my SA-HT1500 dvd recorder works OK, and I can see all contents on recorded DVDs and DVD-RAMs, and I am able to record from and to DVDs.

I also find out that in the worst scenario, there is flat fee charge for repair in autorized Panasonic repair center. The phone number is 847-468-5543, and it is in Elgin, Illinois. You have to leave message on their answering machine, and they will call you back. There is $130 flat fee for all parts, labor and shipping. Definitely worthy compare to ridiculous price for replacement part on Panasonic website.

X HOLD on SA-HT1500 what is it

Try pressing "enter" and "return" simultaneously until the X Hold message disappears. This is the child lock function activated.

Missing remote

I do not know how to solve it without using remote control, but you can order a replacement remote control for your unit from Panasonic part website. A new Remote Control will cost you $24.72 plus tax and shipping. Just type the model number, SC-HT1500, scroll down to find "Find Parts & Accessories" on the right, click on it. The pop-up windows appears. Choose SAHT1500, for main unit, and you will go to the page where you can order many parts for your unit. II think it is worth to invest to a new remote control since many features do not work without it. Here is the link:

Unit not powering on

Replacing the control board seems a bit drastic. Usually there are simple component failures that can cause this. I have seen bad regulators, bad standby power supply circuits, and stuck buttons cause this. It may also be the microprocessor chip. Any of these problems can usually be fixed rather easily for less than $120 for parts and labor.

Panasonic SC-HT1500 System Problem

You have U99 error due to TV GUIDE. Follow manual instruction for new set up, use bogus ZIP 00000 instead of real one, and you will be fine.
You will not have TV Guide working, but you will be able to set up manual timer recording without problem. I used to have that problem since the first day I bought this unit at the end of 2005. Having something "free" is usually not for free.

Power up

I followed instructions posted at
and I opened the unit.
I unscrewed 3 black screw on back, removed two side covers, then I unscrewed 4 silver screws (2 & 2) on both sides and removed the top cover. Then I unscrewed 4 screws (those four screws that hold the silver hlder on the board - they are down, so you need to use long screwdriver.
Carefully moving & holding HDD in the silver holder (moving it only little bit up from the board to see underneath on the board), and I was able to see 2 blown capacitors (with brown stain on top). They are C1261 & C1260 caps - ELNA 680uF RJF 10V.
I did not attempt to remove silver holder with HDD totally now.
In reverse order, I screwed everything back.
I ordered parts at support page for model SC-HT1500, then choosing SA-HT1500 - Main Unit. I found those 2 same capacitors; they cost $1.89 each. Shipping & tax came higher than price of parts. I
I already have soldering iron, and I will try to replace blown capacitors by myself after receiving ordered parts.
I will post my next message after receiving parts - approx. in a week or so.
