Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Switches randomly to black and white

Ever since we got the new DMR-EZ47V and started running our TV exvlusively through it (in order to get digital programming) the TV has been switching randomly to black and white. It happens both for DVDs and for broadcast TV. It can be fixed by either switching from DVD to TV or by changing the channel. We took the player back but unfortunately the problem persists.

When I try to record a show. There is no picture on the disc when I'm done. Its just a white noise screen. I finalize the disc too. there is no prompt to tell me to format the disc.

If the disc playes back then the problem is not with the DVD unit. In order to record white noise, the channel selected for record is probably not tuned in. Try recording the same channel on to video tape and see what results you get.

Message appears unable to decode HD channels

DMR-EZ47V and EZ48V models do not feature a built in HD digital tuner - it is only SD - hence the reason it cannot decode HD. It is a model/design limitation; not a fault.

If you select the HDMI channel to watch a dvd does it do it then, if not disconnect both ends of the scart lead and reconnect or replace. If the scart lead is not in properly this could happen, when you switch on the player and play a disc your tv will automatically switch to the AV/Scart channel, but you are better off manually turning the TV over to the HDMI Hi-Def channel for DVD.
