Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
Also, when the 'U81' is displayed you can't see any other display, e.g. the time you have been watching a recording, etc. When I get rid of it, the orange DVD light flashes briefly on the unit before it returns to normal. Have tried unplugging, waiting and restarting, plus returning settings to shipping condition.

Yes, U99 is a software issue most of the times, you can check this website for the newests software version for your player:
Try updating the firmware (software) on your player, if not you might need to send it for service to a Panasonic authorized service center.

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!!

This is one of several error codes generated by the main microprocessor IC which are
tripped by corruption, preventing proper operation and which may require the
processor to be reset (where practical) or replaced.
The U81 and U80 codes don't mean anything in particular because the corruption error(s) could be caused by a number of different reasons. It does not point to any specific one fault. This is where the confusion sets in as to the origin of the 'error codes' in any device.
U81 means (in technical terms) 'microprocessor communication malfunction' on the universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter' or 'microprocessor feedback information error'.
This is not something the user should undertake to repair themselves; it should really go to an authorised Panasonic repair centre. The cost depends on the parts used and the labour, however, it is not unfixable. You can always get a quote on this and a second opinion, then decide for yourself if it is economical or not.
I posted this 'advice' for this (and a similar) model previously. The DMR-EX series of models are prone to U81 - which is a common (and extremely irritating) error code. As I said, it is not unfixable, if you are prepared to spend a fair amount of money on the repairs by a qualified service technician in a fully equipped workshop with access to all the required components and service manuals.
Certainly worth investigating at least.
