Anytime your unit displays RC1, 2, or 3 - the remote code needs to be reset. Other messages are "chk remote n" or "set n", n being the number 1, 2 or 3. These remote codes are set in case you have multiple products that interact w/ the remote - so when operating one device the other doesn't interfere. Unfortunately, every now and then for completely unknown reasons, they can slip out of the proper code. All you have to do (if your remote is, in fact, functional) is press and hold the number on the remote that corresponds with that which displays on the unit - in your case the number 3, and hold the Enter key at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds. This should resume operation shortly thereafter. However, you will not see any confirmation on the display as you are performing this reset. It is trial and error.

I have a Panasonic remote control and everytime I pushed any button on the remote on the DVD display screen it would read RC1 so I read the above solution which helped but on my remote there was no enter to push so we pushed the #1 button and the OK button at the same time and it worked.

To reset the unit back to factory settings including the default RC1 - press CH UP and CH DOWN buttons together on the front of the main unit - not the remote - hold them for a few seconds until 'SETUP' appears - then go into function menu and check everything - the remote should now operate the machine as intended.

    I should also point out that the reset tip will only work efficiently if the unit is in standby mode first. By default, the remote command mode should be RC1. Once you get it working - you can change this command in the function menu.

It worked. Great tip - thank you

Good Tip, I used enter+1 for mine, I believe that the "1" is the original factory setting.

Try this.. Push the Enter button and the 3 button on the remote for at least 3 seconds.

Your RCA universal remote control may not be able to perform all functions of your Magnavox player. In extreme cases, you may only be able to control on-off. A Philips universal remote control might be a better choice.

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.

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.

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen


I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D
