Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder
My panasonnic plasma tv has starting going into "self check" mode which freezes everything up including the remote and I have to shut it off at the tv. Then when I turn it back on all the presets have been lost and I have to go thru setup for all the channels, etc.
While pressing [ENTER] on the remote control press the  button on the remote - that should change the remote's control code back to one.

Manually pull down the front shield, then somewhat forcefully pull down the inner shield and maybe two little white pins so the tray is exposed with nothing blocking it. Have someone plug the machine in while you are holding everything out of the way and the tray should start to open. Pull your fingers out quickly so you don't block the tray from sliding out.

Not sure if this will help. My machine was stuck with a "Please Wait" message. Searched internet, many folks with problem. The fixes all pointed to 2 capacitors being blown. My brother was able to easily solder 2 new ones in and the machine worked perfectly. If you Google the name and model with Please Wait after it, you will see some of the conversations and remedies. Your machine may be heading toward this problem.
Also, beware of storing too much on your hard drive! My machine was working great after the above repair, but I believe I had too much stored on mine and I got a U99 Error Code. Service Center said it can not be repaired and THEY DO NOT MAKE THESE ANYMORE. There are DV machines with a hard drive so you can watch shows, but not to record show/movies. I make DVDs of my son's high school games. Can edit and transfer many games at once with this machine... not with any others!
Do not let this one die on you. It is priceless.

If you purchased it with a warranty, you may be able to get Panasonic to repair it. Check your warranty to get the conditions for returning it. The "new" Circuit City is operating. I do not believe they will honor purchases under the "old" Circuit City. However you can ask at www.circuitcity.com
