Panasonic DMR ES15 remote stopped working with dvd/recorder...
I have a Panasonic DMR ES15 and have a problem. I just did a master reset from the dvd player/recorder's menu (trying to fix why audio would not record to new dvd), but now....my remote does not operate with my dvd/recorder player. No matter what button i press on the remote, the lcd screen on the player says "set 1". I believe it needs to be reprogrammed...is there such a thing like that? Please help

If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.
U88 means the unit has detected an error while recording or playing and has entered its recovery process to restore the unit to normal operation. You could try using a DVD-RAM disk or a different make of DVD-R but, as you say the unit is new, you should probably return it to the retailer for exchamge, repair or refund according to unit age and retailer's return policy.
If you have another VCR system (Master) you can connect it from the master to the Panasonic DMR ES15 (slave). Insert the copyrighted tape onto the master VCR system and insert a empty VHS tape on the slave system. In the slave, record from the master. When done, you can record from the videotape you have made from the master tape, to the DVD recorder.
If you still have problems, please contact the manufacturer of this model.
The DMR-ES15 is a later model (around 2006/07) than the DMR-E50 (2003/04), but essentially both should do the same job so technically - a good equivalent in terms of recording and same brand so yes. The connections on the rear (of the replacement recorder) should suit and work with your other devices just as the old one did.
According to some other online reviews, the DMR-E50 has had a few issues with recording, and finalizing certain discs.
I'd say go for it - accept the replacement - as long as it comes with some kind of guarantee, works fully and has all the accessories (including remote, instructions etc.) you should be good. Contact the store and seal the deal.
