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...

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!

SOURCE: u80 error code on panasonic dmr-ex75. what is it?

U80 indicates either that poor quality or
damaged discs are being used or that the laser is failing. It is a
self-diagnostic fault code, possibly requiring attention by a qualified
engineer. This is not an inherent fault with the product but a guide for
the engineer to know where, within the product, he should seek the cause of
the problem.

You need to buy a service remote to do this on your model, but the official service remote costs more than the player and is not sold to the general public.

Alternatively, you can rent a chipped regular remote control which does the same job.

In the UK you can get them from www.multi-region.co.uk

Note that on your model there is no other way to hack the player, it can only be done using the correct remote control.

The remote chips are available separately but are not easy to fit unless you're an experienced electronics technician; you can buy read-chipped remotes but they typically cost the dame as the original player.

I hope that you have found my reply to be of use and only ask in return that you rate my answer.

My DMR EX75EB it fails to operate and a code of U81 comes up.


This is one of several error codes generated by the main microprocessor IC which are tripped by corruption, preventing proper operation and which may require the processor to be reset (where practical) or replaced.

The U81 and U80 codes don't mean anything in particular because the corruption error could be caused by a number of different reasons. It does not point to any specific one fault. This is where the confusion sets in as to the origin of the 'error code' in any device.

U81 means (in technical terms) 'microprocessor communication malfunction' on the universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter' or 'microprocessor feedback information error'.

This is not something the user should undertake to repair themselves; it should really go to an authorised Panasonic repair centre. The cost depends on the parts used and the labour, however, it is not unfixable. You can always get a quote on this and a second opinion, then decide for yourself if it is economical or not.

I posted this 'advice' for this model previously. The DMR-EX75 and DMR-EX85 are prone to U81 - which is a common error code.

I would like to download the English version of the manual (PDF) for the Panasonic DMR-EZ 45V Video/DVD recorder combo


The manual is available from Panasonic: http://www.panasonic.co.uk/html/en_GB/Support/Downloads/220239/index.html#anker_220239 . When I fill in the DMR-EZ45V, I got manuals for the DMR-EZ45VEB and DMR-EZ45VEBS.

Additional models are available from the Panasonic UK support site.

I hope this helps.

Error U80


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

Error code u61 will not clear, unable to reset the DMR-EZ45VEBS


Hi, there was no solution to my problem with the error code U61, having talked to a Panasonic repair center it would cost £180.00 to fix this unit as the board and DVD recorder have to be replaced as one unit. It would cost me around £160.00 to buy a new one so there was no point in having it repaired.
