Panasonic DMR-E80H "u99" error message?


It sounds like the HDD is finished, it could not recover, you could see if a computer repair store can help, they have the tools and the software to take it further, but I would consider cost for the attempt.

DVD Recorder MODEL no.DMR-EZ27EB has U99 on screen unable to operate it


Hi.

U99 is a general communication failure between processor and timer, and there may be different causes. Common cause is a defective disk. Removing disk from the drive sometimes may fix the problem.

The first reset that you can attempt is disconnecting power for two minutes.

I quote below a post that was originally published in the MyCe forum (here):

"According to the service manual the U99 error is specifically a "hang up" displayed when there is a communication error that has occured between the main microprocessor and the timer microprocessor.

With more than twenty Panasonics (including four DMR-ES15 models) I'll offer my own observations:

There can be any number of causes for the U99 error, including a culmination of reading, writing, finalizing errors--sometimes appearing after U61 or U88 reading errors. The U99 error might also be associated with unusual DVD Drive noises, "grinding" indicating a dirty rubber hub and spindle; "clunking," "chugging" or "errrp" noises indicating a dirty lens or a failed laser assembly (the "optical pick-up").

Initial remedial measures include the routine DVD Drive lens, rubber hub and spindle area cleaning described in other CDFreaks/MyCE and AVS Forum threads. If that does not correct the problem(s) laser assembly or DVD Drive swapping with a direct replacement may be indicated. Also check for a disturbance to a ribbon cable or ribbon cable contact, correct or repair as necessary.

If the Digital PCB has become problematic, model-specific replacement is indicated. If the DVD Drive on-board contoller (if so equipped) has become problematic, model-specific replacement is indicated. In most cases "model-specific" means the same model year DVD Drive and, with problematic Digital PCBs or DVD Drive controller boards, replacements should be from the same model year and the same or very similar model recorder. Laser assemblies should only be replaced with the same model, i.e., 3331A and 3332A "optical pick-ups" might not interchange satisfactorily.

The U99 error may also be displayed when inferior media is in use. (Beginning in 2008 I've used nothing but Taiyo Yuden 8x Premium Line DVD-R media in my Panasonic, Philips and Magnavox DVD Recorders and HDD/DVD Recorders.)

The U99 error may also be displayed when there is an operating system "time out" occasioned when the user attempts to move too quickly between digital and analog channels (in 2007 and newer EZ series models)."

I get a U56 error message when selection drives? When I scroll down from DVD to SD then VHS. When on SD scrolling to down to choose VHS drive, U56 appears on DMR-EZ48V's screen? I have to select or scroll...


I ran into this on a Panasonic DMR-EA38V, and have discovered that yes, it is one of the input selected with the input select button. It will select DVD, usb, SD (for SD card), and VHS. Scared me for a minute!

Panasonic DMR-EH56 Code regulations


goo day,

yes there are code that you can use to open the region of your DVD player to play multi region disc. But your supplied remote can not do the job. Normally I use factory service remote to free the region of all panasonic DVD player.

The only thing you can do is ask a help from a qualified service technician, I may reffer you to "Next electronics" this is electronic service center within newzealand and ask them if they can convert your DVD player to play mullti region disc. If only your close to my place i would defenitly help your problem.


cheers,
mark

DMR-ES15 Stops after 45 Min.


U88 means the unit has detected an error while recording or playing and has entered its recovery process to restore the unit to normal operation. You could try using a DVD-RAM disk or a different make of DVD-R but, as you say the unit is new, you should probably return it to the retailer for exchamge, repair or refund according to unit age and retailer's return policy.

Panasonic dmr-eh57 multi-region unlock code


I sent an e-mail to Panasonic New Zealand to ask about this, and they advised:
"Panasonic NZ no longer pre set DVD recorders or players for all region multi-zones.
However, we will multi-zone for all regions on request. This needs to be done by an Authorised Service Centre, as a special service remote is used. Once delivered to one of these agents, the service company will charge the fee to Panasonic NZ."

If you're not in NZ, try contacting Panasonic in your own country. Just call up www.panasonic with your country code after eg. US = .com and NZ = .co.nz. It seems a *lot* easier than all those complicated hacks on the net. Now all I have to do is work out how to disconnect my DVD recorder again, and try to

PS. I realise this question is 11 months old by now, but I hope my response helps someone like me just cruising the internet looking for help.
