Unplug the DMR from AC mains socket, and replug it after 5 minutes. If this does not help you, make a factory reset to this set. Get into the user manual, and there is proceedings how to do the factory reset.

My 3 year old Panasonic VCR (DMR ES20) is still stuck at 000000 after a power outage. I have unplugged it, it says Hello but it won't open. If I press on Power for a few seconds, the blinking time shows up...

Hello, Ejband -

I believe your Panasonic DMR ES20 is a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) and not a VCR (Video Cassette Recorder.)

If you do not have the user manual for your DVR, you can find it here to download for free:
It is a PDF document, so you will need Adobe Reader software (free).

I suggest you run through the set up procedures for your DVR, just as if it is a new installation. Among other steps you will need to reset the time (reset the clock.)

Panasonic DMR-ES20 no longer plays back picture on any DVD. Sound works fine, but no picture. Have tried with component, S-Video and RYG cables, but no picture.

I just had the same problem, Tried a bunch of things, ended up just unplugging it, letting it sit for a min and plugged it back in...fixed.

I cannot get any tv channels though my panasonic

This model only has an analogue tuner so wont receive anything if the analogue signal in your area has been switched off. either buy a new new with a freeview tuner built in or just use that one in conjunction with a freeview box.

For the remote to work, make sure "video" is selected (instead of "tv"). It's the little button on the remote under the red button at the top that turns on the TV ("TV/Video")
As for the split screen, I've had that happen numerous times (when I lose power or revert to default settings). YOu have to go to Setup, Display, and select 4:3.
I hope I have helped you. I'm having other problems - with the audio. Some channels have no audio (maybe 3 or 4) and 2 channels are in SPANISH!!! (??) Weird that it's not uniform. I even tried reverting to default settings (and got that split screen!), but didn't help. It "jumped" a few times to the input type screen. I'm thinking some chip got fried or something. I've had it almost 2 years, and guess that's the "built-in" obsolescence!! :-)
Good luck!
