    I can watch DVDs and VHS on my player, but cannot record anything and cannot use the remote for 95% of the functions. I can use the remote for the DVD player power, tv power/channels/volume, but that is it. All help instructions in the manual require use of other buttons on the remote that will not work for me. I tried panasonic.com and could not find a solution; I also called their 1-800 number. The representative had me trying a few different things and nothing worked. They sent me a CD to put in the player, which installed new "firmware" and supposedly updated my machine. It appeared to install correctly, but nothing has changed, and still cannot record. It is driving me crazy!!! Please HELP!

    Remote Control does not operate the Unit. Put new batteries in remote but still does not work. Called Panasonic and they tried couple tips over the phone, did not work. Need a new remote control for this unit as the sensor is not working and I cant program unit to record tv programs.

Can't change the channels on my tv. The channel numbers aren't even coming up on the screen


Does that mean the buttons on the TV do not change the channels? Maybe the batteries are depleted in the remote, which would prevent the displaying of channel numbers;

My samsung le32r74bdx remote control wont change channels and cant turn volume on tv up or down


You can verify that the remote is working. Get a digital camera with a LCD display.
Aim the remote at the camera lens and press the volume and channel buttons. If you do not see
a flash through the camera the remote is bad or the batteries are dead.
If you know someone with any samsung hdtv remote, you can borrow it and try the volume/channel
to see if the tv remote receiver is good.

To restore full functionality to your set you must replace the remote that came with set. Universals only control the most basic of functions.

Cant change ''favourite'' channels or get ''menu''


Make sure the batteries are fresh in the remote control ( I am assuming you are using a remote control to access the on screen display) If you have a universal remote and replaced the batteries you most likely will have to enter the code for the specific TV that you have.

Remote 15-2144


Hello, you can try the search method,
you do this by either holding down the device button eg: TV or if you have one the "magic" button for three seconds, a light should then flash twice to say you have done this correctly.
then press the keys 991 then the power button.
you must now press the channel up key (ch+) possibly upto 150 times while the remote cycles through every code.
Once your tv or device switches off stop pressing the ch+ key and press the power button to make sure it switches back on,
(if you press ch+ too many times you can go back by pressing ch-)
When complete press the magic or device key again to save the settings (light should flash twice to confirm)

Many thanks
Mark

No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner


It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps

Constant channel box on screen


There should be a button on the remote called display and this should turn off the channel display. If it dosent then have the remote checked and make sure its working in that function. A universalo remote wont work as well in most cases. Good Luck
