You have a jammed tray button, its really easy to fix, just take it down to a local dvd repair guy. I am one! and I quote a problem like this as about $15-20 and about 30min of your time :) good luck! p.s. if he/she charges more just take it to someone else!!!

I load up my Panasonic DVD recorder and it has built in freeview as well. Every time i load up my box it comes with up with U61 error and the machine makes a funny noise while trying to load the DVD drive...


The unit is carrying out the recovery process without a disc in the tray. The unit detected an error while recording or playing without a disc in the tray. The recovery process restores the unit to normal operation. Have the unit power cord unplug for about 5 minutes, then reconnect. If issue still exist have unit service.

U61 ERROR ON DISPLAY


U-61 is a hardware error code. Usually means main board failure, however have found that a bad changer can also trigger that code since it connects directly to the main board.

U61 error won't go away


I've solved my problem - thanks to a suggestion on another site. Apparently the machine is sensitive to the type of disc when it has a problem - I inserted an identical make and type of disc (RW in my case) and it then completed its 'restore to normal operation' and the error msg went away.

Also suggested but didn't work in my case was opening the flap on the front, and with the machine OFF, press and hold STOP and Channel UP.

Hope this helps

Model No'DMR-ES15 - U61problem


I get this message occasionally on my Panasonic DMR-ES15. It's actually a really simple fix. It occurs when there is a corruption in the disc which causes the recording mechanism to malfunction. There is a separate error message for this, however it is usually not detected until it's too late. When the recorder asks you to carry out the recovery process, do it. When the disc ejects, make sure you take the disc out that was in there when it occured and throw it away...it will keep happening because the disc is permanently corrupted. However, do not close the tray without a disc or the self-check will fail. Instead pop in a disc of the same format that the error occured in (if it was DVD+RW then put in a DVD+RW). It resolves the problem every time on the first try. (It only happened two times in a year and a half for me). As the manual says the unit is "NOT BROKEN".
