Question about Panasonic DMR-EX75EB-S DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

Panasonic DMR-EX77 - Error code DVD3

Bought the unit second hand from e-bay, worked fine for 6 months.
I used a hack remote to make the unit region free. This worked fine.
The unit was left in HDD mode for a few days, not sure if its the hard drive. I am getting an error code DVD 3 displaying on the unit when I press any button on the remote.

I am thinking of changing the hard drive myself, just wondering if the hard drive should be formatted to FAT 32 or if anyone has seen this issue and may know of a solution before I do this.

Many thanks for reading this post

    Thank you!!! Have been trying to fix this problem for 2 days and was about to fork out for a replacement remote control. Unable to access recorded progs or even TV guide without it. So simple! :-)

Pan use a version of Linux on the recorder. If you change the hard drive there is a format command in setup to format a new hard drive. Put a DVD in and try selecting and playing both DVD and HHD via the front panel buttons. Sometimes you can get error codes on a unit when the batteries in the remote are low. Try changing them Sometimes the remotes are faulty and not communicating properly. A fix in some cases is to press the number button corresponding to the number shown on the display together with the enter or OK button for at least 2 seconds. Good luck

Your problem is that your remote changed 'channels' on you. Read the manual on how to change the remote code. Panasonic lets you use up to three units in the same area without the other remotes interfering by selecting one of three channels to run each unit. You just need to get your remote and unit back on the same channel. I don't know how that happens but I had one do that a year ago myself but since I run a number of them in one room I knew what had happened.

Press and hold the number 3 and ok on the Panasonic remote control for 10 seconds. Your remote should now be coded to work with your machine. You have changed the remote code some how.

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.

My panasonic dmr ex77 is not multi region. How can i make it so?


The procedure below is a hack , can interfere with the normal working of the DVD player

*** Please note *** You will need a laptop with an Infrared (IR) port to use this method.
Most modern laptops have now dispensed with IR ports in favour of WiFi and Bluetooth, so you may need to forage around and find an older laptop with IR.

1) Download both parts of Chachi's RAR file (both of these files can be easily found on this forum).
You will need both files, as the ISO image file has been split across two compressed files.

2) Using WinRAR or WinZip unpack the ISO image file to a folder on your hard disk (the desktop is a good place, so you can easily find it later).
To successfully unpack the ISO image file, both of Chachi's RAR files must reside in the same folder.
As you extract the ISO file from the first archive, WinRAR or WinZip will automatically move to the second file and continue the unpacking process.
After the unpacking process has completed you will be left with a single file with the extension ISO.

3) Using Nero (or similar), use the "Burn Image to Disk" feature to burn the ISO CD image onto a blank CD (just copying the ISO image file onto a CD will not work).
I used Nero to achieve this, but most CD burning software can do the same.

4) On the laptop, ensure that the IR port is set to COM2 in the BIOS (note the original settings, so you can put them back after you have reprogrammed DMR-EX77).
Try to select an older IR mode if available.
My old Toshiba Satellite 4030CDT only supported FAST IR modes and wouldn't work.
I then switched to an Acer Aspire 2000 and through trial and error found the "IrDA (HPSIR)" mode worked perfectly.

5) Boot the laptop from the CD
If your laptop does not give you the option to change the boot drive order at POST, you may need to temporarily change your boot drive order in the BIOS (note the original settings, so you can put them back after you have reprogrammed DMR-EX77).

6) When the laptop has sucessfully booted from the CD you will be presented with a menu.
Using the down cursor key, select option "4. Minimal Boot" and press return.

7) At the "A:\>" prompt type "cd winamp" and press return.

8) At the next prompt "A:\>WINAMP\" type "winsamp" and press return.

9) The Remote control test tool should now be loaded (blue screen with white text).

10) Press the "r" key to load in the REMOTE.TXT file (this file contains the IR signal information required to reprogram your DMR-EX77).

11) The captions "button 1" to "button 10" near the bottom of the screen will now have changed from white to pink.
These are the emulated buttons you will need to press in order to unlock you unit.
Ensure "button 1" is highlighted before proceeding to the next step.

12) Power on your DMR-EX77 and switch it to DVD mode.
You must ensure the disk tray is empty during this process.
I had my disk tray empty and ejected (sticking out) during the process just as a precaution.

13) Point the IR port on your laptop at the IR receiver on your DMR-EX77.
The IR port on the DMR-EX77 is located just above the DVD/CD Open/Close button on the right of the unit.
I found the optimum distance between the laptop and the infrared receiver on the DMR-EX77 was approximately 5~6 centimetres, any more and it may not work.

14) With the IR ports aligned and "button 1" highlighted in pink press the return key on the laptop, wait a moment, cursor right to "button 2" and press the return key, wait a moment, cursor right to "button 3" etc....
Keep repeating this procedure until you have entered all buttons highlighted in pink from 1 to 10 in order.
If your DMR-EX77 reacts as mine did during the process you may see the display on the DMR-EX77 change and also experience the TV channel changing.
Don't panic as this appears to be quite normal during the unlocking process.

15) If all has gone well the display on the DMR-EX77 should now read "HELLO" and you should hear the hard disk spin down for a second, then spin up again.
The DMR-EX77 has new reset itself and has successfully been reprogrammed.
Leave the unit alone for approximately 10~15 seconds before doing anything else, just to be on the safe side.

16) The buttons on the front of the DMR-EX77 unit will no longer function, so switch the DMR-EX77 off using the remote control.
If you left the tray poking out during the reprogramming process (as I did), just wait a few seconds and it will close automatically, you can then switch off the DMR-EX77 using the remote.
There is no need to disconnect the DMR-EX77 from the mains supply.

17) Switch the unit back on, pop in any region DVD you like, sit back and enjoy biggrin.gif

oops.gif If this procedure fails or you make a mistake don't panic! eek.gif

Switch off your DMR-EX77 using the power button and leave it off for a few seconds.
Switch back on your DMR-EX77 and when it's ready try the proceedure again.

I failed several times initially, but it didn't seem to do any harm and everything is fine.

You may also find that changing the IR mode setting in your laptops BIOS may help.
I had to try a few different modes until I found one that worked.

I have a Panasonic DMR-BW880 in New Zealand, expecting (for the huge amount that it cost) it would play DVDs from all regions. But it won't. Can you tell me an unlock code and how to use it please?


Hi.

This player region hack is done programming a service remote, then using the programmed remote on the unit to unlock the region. There is no way to unlock this unit using buttons on the original remote, or on the unit.

You can purchase a programmed remote kit using the link below:

Multi region code for DVD


it appears that this player requires a modified remote control to unlock the other regions (some use plug in modules or hard chipping or service Discs, it really depends on the restrictions of the player)

here is a link to a site that supplies the remote you need, although I'm sure that there are other sites that supply this
