Actually, you are sort of correct, in a sense, RC1 means remote command mode 1 (the default mode of your combo unit). There is one way you can try to fix this:
Remove the batteries from the remote, press any button on it to clear its existing memory buffer, then re-insert them or replace them with new ones. While unit is on (no DVDs or tapes in it), point the remote at it - press and hold 1 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 10 seconds, then release.
This should (in most cases) restore full remote command operation to your combo unit - if when you press a channel button on it, and the unit's front channel changes, the remote is now functioning as it is meant to.
The good news is this will constitute any workshop repairs or costs (except perhaps new batteries for the remote if required).
The "U99" error code signifies a "general communications failure." It is not associated with one specific problem. It can be related to the version of firmware your DVD recorder is currently using and it has been associated with the TV Guide on screen guide.
If your unit displays U99, turn the power off-unplug the unit for 5 minutes, and reconnect the power.
The remote control for your DVR has the capability to control 2
additional DVRs in addition to the one that you currently have. In
order for the remote control to work with your DVR, you will need to
make certain both of them are talking on the same frequency. If you
press the remote control and the front of your unit says DR2, that
means that you need to have your remote on DR2 as well so that it can
operate the DVR. To set your remote to DR2, you will need to make sure
the unit is off then you will need to press and hold down the SETUP
button and while you are holding this button down, press the number 2
button. Your remote is now set to DR2.
I had the Exact same problem, after finding nothing on the net I called
Panasonic customer-Support and they gave me the information which led
to the solution:
If your DVD screen reads 'remote DVD2':
Press and hold simultaneously the "2" & "Enter" buttons (for more than 20 seconds)
If the screen said remote DVD3 then you would hold "3" & "Enter"
What I found happens when this command is accepted, the DVD screen changes to display the channel & counter
e.g. "A2 0:00.26"
If the screen changes back to "Remote DVD2" this means that the signal
from the remote control has been interrupted (you stopped pressing, or
the batteries have become weak.)
Providing the batteries have power, try again remembering to hold the "Enter" and number displayed after DVD.
The first time I did this it seemed to take forever (more than 30secs.), but other times it's been accepted in 6 secs.
For the remote to work, make sure "video" is selected (instead of "tv"). It's the little button on the remote under the red button at the top that turns on the TV ("TV/Video")
As for the split screen, I've had that happen numerous times (when I lose power or revert to default settings). YOu have to go to Setup, Display, and select 4:3.
I hope I have helped you. I'm having other problems - with the audio. Some channels have no audio (maybe 3 or 4) and 2 channels are in SPANISH!!! (??) Weird that it's not uniform. I even tried reverting to default settings (and got that split screen!), but didn't help. It "jumped" a few times to the input type screen. I'm thinking some chip got fried or something. I've had it almost 2 years, and guess that's the "built-in" obsolescence!! :-)
i had the same problem with my rca truflat.. i read from a posting of a similar problem with a different tv brand to switch your closed caption options 'off' or set it to a 'cc' option instead of the 't' options.. (this was done through the on-screen menu..) i gave it a try and it worked for my tv.. hope it works for you..
