Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD recorder - 'remote DVD2' command

Help! The kids have been fiddling with the DVD. When I tried to record, the DVD could not find the correct channel. I've tried rescanning the DVD and the TV. Then I got fiddling and now the remote isn't working! Whenever I try to use it, the DVD screen reads 'remote DVD2'. Really fed up.

I had the Exact same problem, after finding nothing on the net I called Panasonic customer-Support and they gave me the information which led to the solution:
---
If your DVD screen reads 'remote DVD2':
Press and hold simultaneously the "2" & "Enter" buttons (for more than 20 seconds)

If the screen said remote DVD3 then you would hold "3" & "Enter"
----
What I found happens when this command is accepted, the DVD screen changes to display the channel & counter
e.g. "A2 0:00.26"

If the screen changes back to "Remote DVD2" this means that the signal from the remote control has been interrupted (you stopped pressing, or the batteries have become weak.)

Providing the batteries have power, try again remembering to hold the "Enter" and number displayed after DVD.

The first time I did this it seemed to take forever (more than 30secs.), but other times it's been accepted in 6 secs.

Do you still have the instruction manual for the machine? It's covered in the manual. Basically Panasonic assume that you have more than one of their machines in the room, and want you to be able to use two similar but different remotes with two similar but different machines.

Call one machine DVD1 and the other DVD2 - there's a menu option to change them within the 'setup' menus. You change the remote setting by the process outlined in the other solution here, and in the manual.

There's probably a pdf download of the manual at a Panasonic site somewhere.....

I have a DVR-520H (Pioneer) and can´t record programs from my DECO (Pace DC550D) with hight channels. A last channel available is 125. Could you help me? Regards


Tell the PIONEER to "rescan" the channels, and be sure to scan for "digital" channels, so see if channels above 125 can be detected.

My Humax Duovisio PVR-9200T often freezes completely and has to be switched off at mains for a few seconds. Or commands from remote (eg subtitles, menu, channel change) take minutes to respond. Or...


Remove the Aerial.
Switch on or if it's frozen switch off at the mains and on again.
Press Menu
Installation and enter password - 0000
Select 'Default Setting' and OK
Select 'YES' and OK to restore all settings to factory default.
Confirm again to start loading, enter the password again and it will start scanning for channels but won't find any.
Replace the aerial and press OK to rescan and now it will find channels. On completion press SAVE then EXIT on your keypad.
You won't lose any saved programmes but you will have to re-schedule your recordings.

you'll have to rescan or run the auto-program feature in the tv main menu, and if you still have the original remote transmitter you can select video1 or vid2 depending on which input is being used for the dvd player and the dvd recorder.

DMREX78EBK No sound on ITV when recording to hard drive and no sound after recording.


Assuming all other channels are working OK, with sound being saved along with pics, it may be easiest to rescan your channels from the setup menu. Certainly this is what I would do as a first step, and has worked for me on various other PVR devices when I've had odd problems like this on.

Note that this does not delete your hard disk recordings, but it will probably lose your timer settings, so make a paper note of any recordings you have scheduled so that you can recreate once the channels have been re-scanned.

Hope this helps!

Find channels


You say you`ve plugged the outside aerial lead directly into the DVD recorder aerial input socket, you connected an aerial link lead from the aerial output socket on the DVD recorder and you`ve got a Scart lead from the TV output socket on the rear of the DVD recorder into the AV1 socket on the TV. I`m saying all this because in the past, I`ve had customers say this to me only to find when I call round that they`ve plugged the aerial into phono sockets instead of the earial input socket. The aerial lead will fit physically but not electrically. Have you got a good picture on your TV with the DVD recorder switched to standby?? If yes, Does it play a DVD perfectly through the TV?? If yes, then everything is connected up correctly, When you press the virgin menu button to your DVD, it should show setup/install?? When you do get to the free-view or channel setup/install menu, and you tell it to search for new channels, does it scan?? Does a bar or do the numbers rise and the % number rise as it finds new channels?? If they do and everything is connected and working as I described earlier but still no channels are found, Try unplugging from the mains and reboot your DVD recorder, then repeat the whole menu install procedure sequence again. Other than that, there`s nothing else you can do, Basically, you`ve got a faulty machine where it requires an engineers eye I`m afraid. Ian

Cant get all channels


Instead of doing auto scan the should be a option for channel list or add\delete or manual scan. What kind of tv is it? You don't have a cable box right? If you still have trouble, just comment on this.

Hi,

It sounds as if the actual T/V channel is out of tune.
I,d suggest powering the player On.
Then using channel 8-12 on the T/V to Scan for its frequency.
When you,ve located it to the Player.
Lock the channel, then use the DVD on Channel 8-12.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s also check the output from DVD To T/V lead has,nt come loose.
