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.
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. :)
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.
The DMR-ES15 is a later model (around 2006/07) than the DMR-E50 (2003/04), but essentially both should do the same job so technically - a good equivalent in terms of recording and same brand so yes. The connections on the rear (of the replacement recorder) should suit and work with your other devices just as the old one did.
According to some other online reviews, the DMR-E50 has had a few issues with recording, and finalizing certain discs.
I'd say go for it - accept the replacement - as long as it comes with some kind of guarantee, works fully and has all the accessories (including remote, instructions etc.) you should be good. Contact the store and seal the deal.
The aswer is in the manual that can be had on line, page 45. You have 3 different remote types, 1,2,3, All you have to do is hold down the ENTER button and the number 1 or 2 or 3 on the remote for a few seconds and it will change the setting.
