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.

Re: Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD recorder - 'remote DVD2'...

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.

Re: Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD recorder - 'remote DVD2'...

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.....

Panasonic dmr-e55 won't work, just says "hold" on display

HOLD or X HOLD? If the latter - which is most likely - then the Child Lock has been activated! Press and hold ENTER and RETURN simultaneously until HOLD disappears!

DVD recorder continually stuck on a loop trying to read disk.

Hi again

Well done!

I am so pleased to hear that you have restored the DMR E55 and for taking the trouble to let me know. It's always satisfying to achieve something like that and I guess you'll get even more pleasure from using it now than you did before. They are good machines and well worth the effort to keep them going.

Thanks again and kind regards

Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder Problem

I have been told that panasonic now have a faster speed disc on sale to suit the newer dvd recorders that dmr-e55 cannot record on as they are too fast. You have to buy the slower speed ram discs to suit the dmr-e55.
