I beleive FixYa Terms of Service state that you cannot give out Unlock codes for any type of device, hardware or software.

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.

The unit failed during self check, probably the power regulation board. A check by a qualified TV/VCR repair person is in order.

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.
