Re: DVDrecorder not responding

Try a power on reboot. hold the power button for 12 seconds until it reads "recover"

Rolling picture could be a loose cable or TV on the wrong channel.

You can try changing the command mode of the (genuine Panasonic) remote itself, press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] and the number [ 3 ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Then try the remote with the unit. If it still shows DVD 3 on its display, no matter which button is pressed, reset the main unit to factory default as outlined in the user manual (assuming this model recorder has a tuner, there would be channel buttons on the front - try pressing and holding [ CH/UP ] and [ CH/DOWN ] together - for 5 - 10 seconds, until 'SETUP' appears, then release). This may or may not restore your DVD unit to the default (DVD 1) command mode. (Don't forget to reset the remote back to DVD 1 if you do reset the main unit - press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] + the number [ 1 ] button together as above).

Your new remote may be set to DVD 1 by default while your unit is DVD 3 = different remote command modes.

Recorder is set to DVD command mode 1 and remote is set to DVD command mode 3 . Remote will not respond so i can not get to menu to reset. Is there any way around this problem

There is a manual for this model available in pdf format unless you have the original instruction book. Page 23 outlines 'command mode' where you can try pressing ENTER and the corresponding number buttons simultaneously on the remote for more than 3 seconds while pointing RC at the recorder. In your case, because your recorder is set to command mode 1 - press ENTER and 1 together on the remote. This should allow you back into the on-screen menu to revert the command mode back to 3 (which is the default) and it should work.
The online pdf manual for this model: unless you still have the original. Pages 22-24 show some of the setup procedures. The pdf is not very big so you can save it for future use if needed.

Non-functional remote control for Baseline DVD recorder

No do not try soldering the led. This is a led (Light Emitting Diode) It is supposed to look like that. You might have a bad IR sensor in the Recorder itself. The Ir sensor (Infared Sensor) receives commands from the remote and relays the command to the microprocessor in the recorder for processing. To make sure its the remote try a universal remote and program it for your dvd recorder and see if it takes commands of any sort. IR sensor are very cheap the only issue is installing it on the main board of the recorder.

Locked out of the menue ,Need to reset command mode

Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual!
Here's a copy of it (pg 23):

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches
the command mode for the recorder you set above.
1 Hold down ENTER
2 While holding down ENTER, enter the
command mode code number using the
number buttons.
Command Mode Code number
DVD1 number button 1
DVD2 number button 2
DVD3 number button 3
3 Hold down both the number buttons and
ENTER at the same time for more than 3
4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!

Command mode

I did the same thing and lost all remote control to the recorder. Try holding ENTER & 3 in unison for as long as it takes (30 secs or more ) to view change on TV screen. This should get u back to system menu where u can change back to dvd 3 (default ) If doesn't work get a one for all remote and enter code 0533 which will get u in to the recorder command lines. PS enter & 3 worked 4 me.

OK..I see the problem now.. Basically, you have to set both the remote and the recorder to the same command mode. (Default id DVD3). Please see the user manual I have posted in your premium query. It will tell you how to do this on page 22.

Blu-ray remote keeps triggering DVD recorder (and vice-versa)

You can "re-tune" your EX75 and its remote control by following the instructions on page 52 of the manual. This explains how to change the mode of the remote control. In short, you press the FUNCTIONS button on your remote control, get into the setup menu and select "others". The remote control entry is at the top of the list. You can change the setting from here.
