Hi, Since unit has been set on DVD1 remote mode so you need to set remote control itself on dvd1 mode to communicate with unit. Press and hold Enter and 1 numeric key on remote control for 5 seconds, this will change remote control to dvd1 mode, now unit will accept remote control signal and you can operate it normally. Thanks.
On the remote press the System Menu botton when opened, press Enter and scroll down to Option and press Enter then scroll down to Command, press enter and you'll find DVD1,DVD2 and DVD3 scroll down to it press Enter set or reset your unit as desired!
Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual! Here's a copy of it (pg 23):
Set the command mode for the remote so it matches the command mode for the recorder you set above. 1 Hold down ENTER 2 While holding down ENTER, enter the command mode code number using the number buttons. Command Mode Code number DVD1 number button 1 DVD2 number button 2 DVD3 number button 3 3 Hold down both the number buttons and ENTER at the same time for more than 3 seconds. 4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!
It´s is easy to solve. Your DVD was seted to DVD1. Push enter button plus 1 no remote control.
Now you are able to commnad your DVD and go to System Menu and change to DVD3 again.
After it, don´t forget to backup your remoto control to DVD3. Push enter button plus 3
Go to your DVR and manually turn the DVR off. Press the STOP button for two or three seconds. The DVR COMMAND MODE setting will display in the DVR window. (DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3)
Set the remote to the COMMAND MODE setting that was diaplayed by depressing both the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same time for 3 seconds.
You can now use the remote to set the DVR to the desired COMMAND MODE. To do this depress SYSTEM MENU on the remote and go to SETTINGS and then COMMAND MODE. Select either DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3. Once you delect a setting that is different from what was set, your remote will stop working again.
Reset your remote to the desired COMMAND MODE by depressing the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same time for 3 seconds. The remote should now control the DVR.
To reset the factory details as if it was just removed from the box - Leave the recorder on, flip down the front panel on the recorder and then press and hold the channel up and down buttons at the same time until it says bye on the display. Wait a few seconds then turn it back on. It should automatically select all the programmes available
Read page 23 in the manual.
Press "enter" & the #1 keys together for 5 seconds.
Then press stop.
Press "system menu" & change the option back to dvd3.
Then press "enter" & the #3 keys together for 5 seconds.
Press "system menu".
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.
