SOURCE: Panasonic DMR- EA18 DVD player/recorder - Remote control Problem

I figured out, unlike all the other posts, you don't have an enter button. But Instead, you would hit the 2 and OK button at the same time for a few seconds. I had the RC1 message and I did the 1 with OK and it worked. so if you have RC2, you should hit the 2 and OK. Should work!!

SOURCE: How can we make playback readible on all DVD

You need to finalize the disc. Go to settings and make sure to press where it says "Close or finalize disc" then will tell you that the disc is no going to be able to record any more in the same disc. It can only be played!! But, from any dvd player, even computers or portable player from any brand!!

SOURCE: DVD Recorder model-DMR-ES10. Stuck in "Please

this problem usually cause when abrupt power failure experience or unintentional power shutdown while in the process of recording. The unit did not finish what it is doing.

Try pressing once the Timer button (the image of a clock button) to cancel pending recording jobs.

there are several things to consider in this kind of error...

1.The mechanical timing of the loader.check for the limit switch of the tray.the switch must activates when the tray push to it .clean the contact and check the wires..
2.Check if there is remaining cd in disc loading tray and remove it first before turning on the unit.
check also the connectors specially the ribbon wires that connects to the lens/optics..and CPU
4.clean the lens that reads the disk poor/defective lens can LEAD to such kind f error
5.check/replace the spindle motor.this motor is the holds/spin the disk..replace the parts with same kind of specification they written on the parts. Use your finger to properly park the mechanical losing disc to its resting place.
6. Check for loosened wires, disconnected cables and reseat them properly

I have the DVD/VHS recorder/player Panasonic Model DMR-E75V, I have connected the 2 scart cables to the digital decoder and TV set but I cannot record even if I can play the VHSs and DVDs normally. It's a...

First of all you have to connect only one SCART cable ( one end to TV and the other to DMR ).When you are watching a program on TV select the DMR source ( input selector ) to SCART. Just press the record button with a blank DVD inside and it will record. Some Digital broadcast might have copy protect content which will prevent the recording from happening.
