From User guide:
U61 • There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not broken. Wait until the message disappears.

If fail unplug and hold power button for a minute or two and turn it on and repeat.

U61 is a common fault in the Panasonic DVD recorders. It is generally a failure of the DVD-RAM drive and/or the digital controller board (in some cases it is both and both must be replaced together as a module). Unfortunately these are not repairable at individual component level; they would most likely need to be replaced and fitted by a qualified technician in an authorised Panasonic service centre. The only trouble here is the potential cost(s) involved (such as labour, the DVD drive, etc) - could be expensive and/or uneconomical. However, you can always submit your unit to a repair shop for a quote and a second opinion (on the costs of the replacement part(s) as well as estimated labour charges and the extent of the problem - this allows you to make an informed decision afterwards to get this fixed, but it is up to you.

The cost of a new DVD-RAM drive (if that is the actual problem, and not the board it is connected to) is quite high; anywhere between $130 US (for XVY1961 to suit DMR-ES35V/DMR-EZ47V models) up to $450 AU for the same device plus labour costs should you choose to have it replaced.

I assume you like your unit and want it working properly. If you do decide to deal with an authorised Panasonic service centre, ensure that when the work is completed they provide a detailed report, and some sort of warranty on that repair, especially if it involved replacing the DVD drive. Unless you have an extended manufacturer's warranty on this; which means it won't cost you anything to have it assessed and repaired fully.

Error code U61 on a panasonic DMR-ES35v When I turn it on it says "Please Wait" end the code U61 occurs after som while.


The manual refers to the U61 as being a recovery mode. Have you left it at U61 for a period of time while it tries to recover?
U61 ≥There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is
carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not
broken. Wait until the message disappears.
You could always try to force it into standby mode and back out again:
Press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit to switch the unit to standby.
Now press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit again to turn the unit on.
If that doesn't take care of it, everything thing I've found points toward a replacement of components inside the system by a repair service. Hopefully you are still under warranty!

Error code U61 on a panasonic DMR-ES35v


component failure, the DVD Disk Drive Control Board
(Part No. VEP79132).

Panasonic will not sell this individual part but packages it a module, called the RAM/Digital PCB Module
(Part No. RFKNES15P).

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.

Panasonic dmr-es35v


Is the Remote Control sensor in direct fluorescent lamp light or other strong
sources of light?
Press unit POWER button down over 7 seconds. The POWER indicator goes
out. If the Power was On, the screen will also disappear. After 5 seconds, turn
Power On and operate unit normally. If the steps above do not restore normal
operation, disconnect then reconnect the AC plug and turn the power On.

If that does not work, Panasonic offers free tech support 6 days a week 1-800-211-7262 (pana).
