Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
Hi, iam looking for a solution to the above panasonic DMR ex98v. it is just on screen ''please wait'' and nothing is happening!! is it worth getting repaired, (i.e by us!!) or shall i just replace with something better?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

SOURCE: Error code U61 on a
The manual refers to the U61 as being a recovery mode. Have you left it at U61 for a period of time while it tries to recover?
U61 ≥There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is
carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not
broken. Wait until the message disappears.
You could always try to force it into standby mode and back out again:
Press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit to switch the unit to standby.
Now press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit again to turn the unit on.
If that doesn't take care of it, everything thing I've found points toward a replacement of components inside the system by a repair service. Hopefully you are still under warranty!

My Panasonic DMR-E85H also had the frozen "Please Wait" problem.I found this site and followed the instructions regarding replacement of the C1270 and C1271 capacitors with Radio Shack 1000uF 35V radial-lead capacitors (model 272-1032) @ $1.59 each. Took about 30 minutes plus the time to get the parts. Keep in mind that my husband and I have never done anything like this before. We followed all the posted instructions and the our Panasonic DMR-E85H works great now. Many thanks to everyone who posted these solutions and especially RandyChev for the great pictures. - What a life saver.

You need to buy a service remote to do this on your model, but the official service remote costs more than the player and is not sold to the general public.
Alternatively, you can rent a chipped regular remote control which does the same job.
In the UK you can get them from www.multi-region.co.uk
Note that on your model there is no other way to hack the player, it can only be done using the correct remote control.
The remote chips are available separately but are not easy to fit unless you're an experienced electronics technician; you can buy read-chipped remotes but they typically cost the dame as the original player.
I hope that you have found my reply to be of use and only ask in return that you rate my answer.
