Panasonic DMR-es40V F03 error code - VHS not working

Mechanical fault, usually caused by oxidisation of the mode switch - creating increased resistance between its wiper and its internal contacts. Try cleaning the mode switch (under the VCR mechanism on the main board) using a commercially available electronic cleaner (after first unplugging unit from power point, and carefully removing top and front covers), rotating the switch wiper gently in each direction, let it sit for a few minutes, refit the mechanism, ensuring all is reconnected to the board, plug unit into power, test.

The other option if the cleaning doesn't work, is to order and replace the mode switch with a new one - these are not expensive parts, and should be available from Panasonic directly. Make sure you quote the model number of your unit to the spares supplier before obtaining any replacement parts, including the mode switch as required.

BUT: try the simplest and cheapest option (cleaning the mode switch) first. See how you go.

Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder / VCR Combo RC1 errior message how do I fix this problem
To get into Service Mode, first put the machine in STANDBY mode, then press the buttons ChUp OPEN/CLOSE and REC all at the same time on the front panel (Ch Up is hidden inside the AV3 input flap). Eventually the front panel display will show "SERV" (after its "HELLO" messages). Anyway, pressing [6] then [5] on the Remote Control tells me that I have an Error Code of "04" which is a Digital PCB or Communication Error (whereas an Error code of "02" means a "Defect of RAM drive"). (To exit from Service Mode, press [0] then [0] which should get you back to "SERV" and then POWER-OFF the machine).

Hopefully, your manual will display your error codes.

Perhaps the remote control is not set to the same control code as your DMR-ES40V. Codes may be set to 1, 2, or 3 on the remote by holding down the enter button and one of those number buttons for several seconds at the same time. The factory default is code 1. Try 1 first. If that doesn't work try 2. If that doesn't work try 3. If one of those codes doesn't work you may have a bad remote or a bad sensor on your machine. On DMR-ES35V models the sensor is located just to the right of center behind the black window

I have a Panasonic DMR E85H DVD recorder. I needed to remove the front cover to remove a DVD that was locking up the system. So, I took off the top cover and the removed the front panel. Took the four...

Could be that your original problem was panasonic's common bad capacitors issue. Open case again and look for yellow substance on top of swollen capacitors. Look for instructions on this site for soldering in higher rated replacements. I made this repair myself today!

Panasonic DMR-ES45V - DVD recorder / VCR combo Remote not workin

My remote is not working. When I press a button, I get the following message on my unit: U12, U30, SET #, CHK REMOTE #, or RC #. What can I do to fix this? The message displayed means that the remote control and unit are not communicating and the remote needs to be programmed. To program the remote, press and hold the same number that is displaying on the unit and the [ENTER] or [OK] button for more than 2 seconds. For example, if the unit displays “SET 2”, press and hold [2] and [ENTER] or [OK] for more than 2 seconds.
