Question about Panasonic DMR-E20 DVD Recorder
My DMR-ES20 is showing 2, side by side, black & white images on the tv screen. I had been using the s-video out port and it has worked fine since new 12-2005. I removed the s-video cable and tried the audio/video red, white, yellow cables with the same result. Any ideas?
I own a DMR-ES20 and had that problem. Panasonic Customer Service gave me a fix that works.
On the unit itself, press STOP and PLAY at the same time for about 10 seconds. This fixed my player.

I have been trying to resolve a similar problem for the last two days, i.e. everything is displayed in black and white (no colour) and as a double image showing diagonally. I had tried to reset using the remote control (pushing STOP and PLAY) but it did not work. Then I found your post which suggested pushing the STOP and PLAY on the machine and now the DVD recorder works again. Thank you.

Thankyou Breeze. I have returned two of them just to figure out that All I had to do is press the two buttons .. Thankyou wish it would have been in the manual.

I posted the same problem a few minutes ago for my DMR-E20. I never have used an S cable, just the three wire (yellow, white, red) hookup and I've had mine for about the same amount of time as you with no problems whatsoever. All I've done is disconnect and reconnect my cables to insure contact and made many attempts by turning off and restarting and ejecting and reinserting my DVD disc. I did get an "out of region" screen a few times, but not at present. I do recall that just before it went wacky, it took an unusually long time to reformat my rewritable DVD. It was the first time that ever happened.
