Panasonic DMR-EZ47V Error Code F03

When I ejected a VHS tape, the tape was still partly 'engaged'. Turning the unit over freed the tape. I rewound another tape w/ no issue. Re-inserted the original tape and got error code F03 when I tried to rewind it. What's the probem/ what should I do?

    Out of the box - after connnecting it for the first time and pressing the on/off button for more than 10 seconds, I get an error code of F03.



    What does this code mean, there is no discription in the manual?

I saw this same issue. I would unplug and plug in the DVD and it would still show error code F03.

It turns out that one of my kids had shoved a couple of small objects inside the VHS opening and it was blocking the operation. I removed the objects and it works fine.

This error code is not listed in the manual that came with the DVD player.

Wont do anything getting F30 error code


Do you mean F03? that error is known in Panasonic video products. It usually applies to the VCR, which means a mechanical fault; such as loading motor and/or mode switch. The switch itself would be on the main board under the VHS deck, and can be cleaned with special electronic spray cleaner, and electronic lubricant (after the cleaner), but for more reliable results, the mode switch may require replacement, which should be done by a workshop. If this is the only issue you have with your combo unit, it shouldn't cost too much to correct this problem. Either try cleaning the switch yourself (being careful when opening unit), or submit to workshop for quote and professional repair.

I have never heard of F30 as a video/DVD error code before. That error applies to some Panasonic air-conditioners and is a system error.

Cannot get VHS tape to eject. Keep getting F03 or F06 codes. Have unplugged, used reset button, etc. HELP...!


If all else fails...you may have to go inside and take a look. I had this happen to me and I found that a piece of plastic had somehow gotten into the moving parts. Remember to first UNPLUG the unit and don't touch any of the electronic parts/pieces. You're just looking at the VHS mechanical parts. Now that you're inside, if you can with any level of confidence...plug the unit in and try ejecting the tape. Watch for anything hanging up all the moving parts that eject the tape.
If you're at all not comfortable working around something like this with live power then DON'T DO IT! Take it to have it looked at.

But if you are OK doing this sort of thing, hopefully you'll see some piece of junk has fallen into the tape area and it jamming up the workings!

Good luck!

Dirty heads or the recording was from a different brand VCR and the Panasonic cant get the right tracking. Try manual tracking just a little in either direction to you get the right one.

Error Code F03


What worked for us when we saw F03? Taking the toothbrush out of the VCR! I kept resetting the unit and nothing worked. Finally, I decided to see what would happen if I stuck a tape in. It wouldn't go in because of the toothbrush! I took it out, reset the unit again and it was fixed.

Maybe the error is not F03, but FO3 meaning there is a FOREIGN OBJECT stuck in the VCR.

Copying vhs to dvd


The write-protect tab on the cartridge is set to "PROTECT" or the disc is protected witht the "DVD Management" settings.
Some video tapes on the market(including rental videos) are copy-protected to prevent illegal reproductions. Copy-protected video tapes cannot be properly recorded.
You cannot use the copying function when the FUNCTIONS window, the Scheduled Recording List screen, etc. are displayed.
I hope this information can be of some help to you all. Ms Tanya 2/12/08 3:54AM CST.
