Question about Panasonic DMR-ES30VS DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

DMR-ES30V remote and DVD panel buttons not responding

My grandchild was playing with the remote, pushing buttons and such, which I later discovered some buttons on the remote and on the main unit seem locked. My remote and front panel dvd recorder buttons seem locked - the vhs panel buttons work but do not work on the remote. The remote Joy stick (<) (>) and (up) buttons do not work but the (down) button and (Enter) works. Can not adjust any menu items or navigate across or up because the (>) and (up) keys on the remote seems locked. Hard Reset (holding chennel keys on main unit down) does not restore the system. The other forced power off and reset does not restore the normal function. Does not seem to be the child lock feature, although can not activate child lock. Would like to reset for all factory settings, including the units remote ref to mode 1. Is there a service setting or inside cover full factory reset pin to ground for a complete reset to factory settings?

I assume you have fixed this by now, but if not, call panasonic's help line (number is in your owner's manual). They will walk you through the complete reset process (maybe 5 minutes). you will have to re-program everything the same as you did when it first came out of the box, but that doesn't take too long. Also, first try taking the batteries out of the remote. Make sure they are still good. Wait 60 seconds or longer, then replace batteries.

You may have to repeat code search to get the remote working again. They have a tendency to become absent minded, especially when batteries are weak.

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments to the foresight of your father. Your described concern is not caused by a "lock". It is indicative that the recording session was not 100% completed. Rather than 'crack', what is required is the final step in the recording. All the DVDs must be "finalized" in the same machine that recorded the movies, the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V. The finalize option would be in the MENU/Settings and must be enabled. Finalization per disc would take some time.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since both are record capable:
  • hook the Video and Left/Right Audio OUT of the DMR-ES30V to one of the composite/matching INPUT of the DMR-EX88;
  • use the DMR-ES30V as a player and the DMR-EX88;
  • to be able to watch and monitor the output, temporarily hook up the OUTPUT of the DMR-EX88 to the INPUT of the TV.
