Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder

11 Answers

Set 1 My Panasonic Dmr-es15 dvd recorder keeps stating "Set 1" everytime any button on the remote is pressed. It won't let me use the menu, direct navigation, turn it on or off..nothing. I haven't done anything to my settings. I put in a DVD and pressed Menu, it worked fine, during the movie I tried to pause it and the screen on the DVD recorder said "Set 1" it's done this everytime a button has been pressed on the remote since then. I've turned off the recorder from the base unit and turned it back on hoping that would solve the problem but there's been no such luck. I've had the dvd recorder since April, this just makes no sense to me. If anyone knows how to fix it I would appreciate it.

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!

    Yes, that truly worked. Note that nothing seems to happen while you are pressing, only when you then get to press power on again

I had the same problem with my Panasonic DMR-EH75V (DVR with DVD Burner/Recorder/Player and VHS player). This fix worked great!!!!

The most important important thing is to hold the keys down for at least a full 10 seconds. I had tried everything including unplugging for 24hrs, taking out remote batteries for 24hrs, and pressing about every combination of keys I could think of. I think I did try "1+enter" at some point, but I don't think I was holding for 10 seconds (more like 5 seconds).

Whoever posted this -- you rock!!!

Thank Al Gore for the Internet! I was ready to throw this player/recorder away because I've had so much trouble with it. Then, I did a quick search on Google and found the solution to the remote control problem. I have been very unhappy with this Panasonic product. It is a real pain to record VHS to DVD and doesn't always work. And I had to buy another remote because the one that came with the player crapped out on me.

Posted on Aug 31, 2008

It worked thanks a bunch!

Posted on Aug 03, 2008

"1" and "enter" solves the problem!

SET 1 problem 1 + enter for ten seconds works great thanks

SOURCE: Problem with Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES15

With a soft cloth, clean the 'hole' area of a DVD that you know worked in the past. Sometimes oils from our fingers get on the disc and then the disk can't spin properly. If the problem persists, open the case and look for two failed capacitors. (See similar solutions on this website.)

How do you reset clock on your DVD Recorder DMR-ES15. Can't find booklet that came with recorder.


You can either copy and paste the following link into your browser, for quick-view, and/or save the .pdf document (instructions for Panasonic DMR-ES15 DVD recorder):

http://videolinq.tafe.net/attached_docs/pdf/equipment/Panasonic_DMR-ES15_User_Manual.pdf

(verified and complete to give you a basic operation manual for FREE download)

or you can try to set the clock manually, do this:

press [FUNCTIONS] on the remote while unit is on, to bring up the setup menu, scroll to 'OTHERS' look for 'CLOCK' or 'CLOCK SET' option, highlight it, click it, set the clock. Press [ENTER/OK] to access the date hour minute, etc., then press the relevant remote arrow buttons to select correct time/date, then press [ENTER/OK] to store the current setting. Then press [RETURN] to exit the setup. Clock is now set (this model does not offer automatic clock adjustment for daylight saving).

If the above suggestion does not work, download the pdf and save it for accurate reference. Either may help you.

Remote won't work


According to page 15 of the manual, you should "Press and hold [ENTER] and the indicated number button at the same time for more than 2 seconds" This will work for SET 1, SET 2, etc. If you have lost the manual for the DVR/Remote you can download a copy at http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES15-MULTI.pdf

Hi, when i press any key on the dvd recorder remote (panasonic dmr-e55) i comes up with remote dvd 1 everytime and wont do anything else, weve tried umplugging it 2 but that doesnt help, do u have any...


Very easy fix.

Your DVD recorder can be set up to accept remote contol signals on any one of three channels. DVD 1, DVD 2 or DVD 3. Your remote can be set up to send signals on any of these channels. You need to make sure your recorder and remote are set to the same channel.

Your recorder is telling you that it is set to receive remote control signals on channel DVD 1. This means your remote control is currently set for a different channel.

Assuming that you have a genuine Panasonic remote, do the following, On your remote press the "Enter" button and hold it down. Then press the "1" button at the same time for two seconds, then release both. This will change your remote so it sends signals on DVD 1 which will match your recorder.

Those clever people at Panasonic realise that you will be delighted with their products and will probably have several of their appliances in use. The different channels avoids switching all your Panasonic gadgets at the same time. Clever huh?
Best wishes

Panasonic DMR ES15


Got me too... If the buttons on the main unit work normally, then possibly main unit and remote control are using different codes. Main unit shows SET 1; change remote control code to match it: Press and hold [ENTER] and code number [1] keys for more than two seconds.
