Hi, I have DMR-E60 I have original Remote control but when I press any button, on a display shows remote dvd 2 ,please tell me what can I do. Thanks

The remote and the DVR are not paired correctly. This is a feature which allows the use of 2 units from the same manufacturer without each remote controlling both units. There will either be a small switch in the remote's battery compartment, a sequence of button pushing on the remote or an option to pair the remote in the DVR's menus to change from remote 2 back to remote 1.

DMR-E50 Fixed!

My E50 stopped working yesterday. All that was working was the cooling fan. I knew it had to be related to the power supply, so I got a screwdriver.

I found that the power supply board inside had two "bulging capacitors". For those that don't know, these are capacitors that look sort of like Jiffy Pop popcorn. The top is puffing up like it's going to explode. A good capacitor should be flat on top.

I carefully removed the existing (bad) capacitors, and I replaced them with similar rated capacitors that I yanked from an old computer motherboard. You can also buy them online for about twenty-five cents a piece. After soldering them on the board, I put everything back together.

I carefully plugged the unit back in, not 100% sure that something would explode.
WOW! It came on... not only that, but it played a disc. After that, I recorded a show. My recorder is back!

I just wanted to share this in case any of you with the DMR-E50 were heading to the trash can. I should also add that any of you not experiencing power problems, but maybe having inconsistent behavior, might want to check the capacitors. I know from experience that PC's with bulging capacitors have a variety of symptoms including just shutting off out of the blue.

I hope this helps somebody out there. Just remember to unplug everything and be careful. That's my disclaimer so I don't feel guilty. :)

Panasonic DMR-E50 no power

Check the two pin power plug on the back panel.
These units have a common problem on the power board where a regulator overheats and finally blows. Sometimes even before it blows it will take out an internal fuse. If the power board is faulty the repair is easy for an engineer and not too expensive.
