Re: DVD won't record

I also get the error message using three new disks with different brand names. They all met the requirements in the manual. The service reps gave me three different answers. None worked. Finally, a rep said I had to use a specific disk similar to the one that came with the recorder (speed 8x). The manual said it works best with 2x. After checking the 8x, I learned it can cause many problems - not most importantly, not compatible with most other other players or recorders. I purchased it at Walmart, but am going to try returning it. I bought it 1 1/2 years ago but haven't attempted to use the recorder component till recently - so don't know what will happen. Sorry, to be the bearing of bad news to all of you who got stuck with this lemon.

Re: DVD won't record

Check your dvd that may not be a recordable dvd. You have to use either DVD R+, R-, or rewritable RW+/- disk. where did you buy it?

I record a DVD from VCR tape and try to play on another device

In my research, I learned about finalizing the DVD, which was a new concept to me. I looked that process up in the manual and it did the trick.

Panasonic DMR-ES45V - DVD recorder / VCR combo Remote not workin

My remote is not working. When I press a button, I get the following message on my unit: U12, U30, SET #, CHK REMOTE #, or RC #. What can I do to fix this? The message displayed means that the remote control and unit are not communicating and the remote needs to be programmed. To program the remote, press and hold the same number that is displaying on the unit and the [ENTER] or [OK] button for more than 2 seconds. For example, if the unit displays “SET 2”, press and hold [2] and [ENTER] or [OK] for more than 2 seconds.
