I had the same problem, At the time, I called and was told to press each and every button on the remote twice. I really thought they were just fooling around - but it worked! I know it sounds ridiculous but I have done this twice in five years and I don't know how or why BUT IT WORKS!!!!

Make sure you take the batteries out first before pressing all those buttons!

How do I record a show using my DVR and i-Guide?

There are multiple ways to do this:
  1. Press the RECORD button on your remote control while watching a program to begin recording. An overlay will appear on your screen to let you know you have started recording.
  2. From the TV listings grid, highlight the show you want to record and press the Record button.
  3. From any program information screen, highlight the Record icon and press the OK/Select button on your remote to schedule a recording. Follow the on-screen prompts for additional recording options.
Manually schedule a recording for a specific time or channel:
  1. Press the MENU button on your remote control then select the DVR icon.
  2. Or, if available, press the My DVR button on your remote control.
  3. Select the start time, end time and day that you want to record.
  4. Press Confirm.
  5. In the channel list that appears, select the channel to record from.

Remote stopped functioning for dvd\vcr unit


When the remote control won't operate the DVD player recorder, check the batteries. Try replacing them and see if the remote works. If the batteries are fine, the code on the remote and the code on the DVD player recorder might not be the same. When aiming the remote at the unit a number will be displayed. To set the remote to the same number, which will be 1, 2, or 3, press down OK on the remote as the appropriate number at same time.
God bless you

Panasonic DMR-EX88 recorder was working fine but remote has stopped working so cant get to the hard drive (can still play a disk by pressing play on the unit). Remote started working intermittently, now...


Either the remote itself is exhibiting strange behaviour, or the unit's IRD controller circuit (and/or the IRD itself) is faulty. Perhaps when you changed the batteries, the remote needs to be 're-commanded' (that means entering a remote code by pressing and holding 2 buttons together for 10 seconds - example - 1 + ENTER/OK) - this should be done whenever the batteries are replaced. If this does not restore the remote to full control, then the IRD (and/or its controller circuit) is the most likely suspect; or, worst case scenario; your remote is defective. I hope it isn't the latter.

I suggest you submit the unit to an authorised service centre for a quote (since this is not a disc drive replacement/alignment it shouldn't be too expensive) then you can decide for yourself afterwards as to what further action to take. Up to you, it is not unfixable. You can always ask Panasonic directly for straight answers and get a second opinion at the same time.

I hope you do not need a new remote at this stage.

One or more button of the remote may be sticky and touching together.
If this happened, the remote will not work.
Remove the batteries and press all of the buttons at least 2 times.
This will free up all the buttons.
Install batteries and try remote.

Remote for 160gb hard-disk recorder has stopped working. Not a battery issue.


YOU CAN VERIFY THAT IT IS NOT WORKING BY RECORDINGTHE FREQUENCY WITH A CAMCORDER. To do this, you simply point the remote at the camcorders lens while recording and press buttons (with good batteries in the remote). Next, play back the recording and you will see the remotes output flashing if it is working....and of course, no flashes means the remote is dead. Remotesare pretty much useless to fix because it is cheper to replace them. You can look for the same remote on Ebay or go to Walmart to buy a Universal Remote that you can program.

Remote control will not work?


Hi Quad, recently I also got same recorder and faced the same problem with the remote controller. today i tried to solve this. i opened it up. it turned out the battery connections are not proper. The battery connection are in the form of a spring coil which touches the outerside of the battery which is not touching properly. I bent and slight lift it with a plier and it started working. The other connection is touching front side of the battery(on backside you see label cr2025 printed) and this is alright. I hope it works for you too. with best regards
