Question about Panasonic DMR-ES20EG DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Panasonic DMR-ES20 Hello, My DVD Recorder has not been turned on for a while and nothing works anymore. The screen seems to be split in two and theres a little "P" in a small coloured in box on the front display. The remote also doesn't seem to be working, and i've changed the batteries numerous times.

Re: Panasonic DMR-ES20

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!

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.

Video out problem

I own a DMR-ES20 and had that problem. Panasonic Customer Service gave me a fix that works.
On the unit itself, press STOP and PLAY at the same time for about 10 seconds. This fixed my player.
