Question about Panasonic DMR-EH50 DVD Recorder

Open Question

Panasonic DMR-EH50 remote partially not functioning

I haven't used my DMR-EH50 in about 10 days. I turned it on tonight and pressed the green button for the electronic TV guide. Nothing happened. Tried pressing the Schedule button to check the list of shows to record. Nothing happened. Pressed a number button to change the channel, and the number started flashing on the screen. Pressed the Enter button and nothing happened; the channel didn't change, and the number kept flashing in the upper right corner of the screen. I can access and watch shows already recorded via the Direct Navigator button, but I can't change channels either directly or with the 'cursor' control for channel up/down. Is there some sort of 'reset' command for this unit?

Had this same problem and found the solution elsewhere on the net. Hold down the "1" button and the "Enter" button for aprox 10 seconds while pointing at the player. This "resets" the remote. I was skeptical when I first read this solution but it worked for me!

Unit turns on and off but nothing else works

Simultaneously press the [CHANNEL UP] and [CHANNEL DOWN] buttons on the front of the DVD Recorder for approximately 10 - 15 seconds (until the unit powers off).

Disconnect the wall outlet. Wait for 10 minutes. Then power up.

It this still does not help....and If you are capable of taking the risk check out DMR-EZ47 Firmware Installation Instructions
Panasonic DMR EZ47 Installation Instructions Manual

Familiarize yourself with all the steps and especially the page 7,8 before you attempt this,

When i press remote all I get is remote DVD 3 on display panel please help

The remote and the unit are using different command codes. You can try this:

Press and hold [ENTER] and the number 3 button together on remote (while pointed towards unit) for 10 seconds, then release. This should restore the remote command to your unit.

It might not help, but it's worth a shot.

While trying to save parts of a TV-programma I recorded on mij Panasonic DMR EH50 DVD-recorder I try to delete the parts that are'nt useful to me. The recorder gives the following message: Can not 'work'...

Highlight the recorded program on Direct Navigator then press the Sub Menu button on the remote, then select "Shorten Title". Press (Enter) at the start point and end point of the section you want to erase, then use the up/down button to select "Next". Then, select "Erase" to delete the unwanted sections. Repeat this process for all unwanted parts, then select "Exit" to return to Direct Navigator.

We have a Panasonic DMR-EH50 DVD player/recorder. We recently moved house and following the move, the FUNCTIONS button on the remote no longer works. Everything else on the remote does. I've tried...

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.
