Question about Panasonic DMR-ES20EG DVD Recorder
Dac42724; I have a Panasonic DMR-ES20 DVD player/recorder. It quit working, I unplugged it and plugged it back up to reset everything. Now it will run through the updating process (000000) scanning across the front of the unit for ever. I held the on/off button to manualy reset to standby. The clock appears I turn it on by remote HELLO appears, and that is all it will do. Cannot open tray ,turn it off, use any functions on remote, or unit. Got any solutions to fix this.
There is a DC - C convertor under the deck that fails. There is a kit available for Panasonic Authorised Service Centres.

For the remote to work, make sure "video" is selected (instead of "tv"). It's the little button on the remote under the red button at the top that turns on the TV ("TV/Video")
As for the split screen, I've had that happen numerous times (when I lose power or revert to default settings). YOu have to go to Setup, Display, and select 4:3.
I hope I have helped you. I'm having other problems - with the audio. Some channels have no audio (maybe 3 or 4) and 2 channels are in SPANISH!!! (??) Weird that it's not uniform. I even tried reverting to default settings (and got that split screen!), but didn't help. It "jumped" a few times to the input type screen. I'm thinking some chip got fried or something. I've had it almost 2 years, and guess that's the "built-in" obsolescence!! :-)

I'm pretty sure the force disk eject is the same across all Panasonic models - however I couldn't find anything specific for your model number. Still worth a shot, though.
With the unit in standby, press and hold the 'Stop' and 'Ch up' buttons together. It should power up and force the tray open. If this doesn't work, try changing up your timing by pressing and holding 'Stop' first, then a half-second later, press and hold 'Ch up' and keep them both held together. You can also try the opposite.
If none of these work, it will have to be taken apart to get the disc out. If you aren't comfortable trying, it will have to go to service.

I figured out, unlike all the other posts, you don't have an enter button. But Instead, you would hit the 2 and OK button at the same time for a few seconds. I had the RC1 message and I did the 1 with OK and it worked. so if you have RC2, you should hit the 2 and OK. Should work!!

Sounds like a typical communication error between power supply and main microprocessor, resulting in the unit continuously reverting to standby with no other functions accessible. In this case, the power supply has several faulty/leaky components (no shorts or there would be no clock display at all). Always a good idea to target the PSU in these units first, to eliminate any suspects before diving into the microprocessor (which, I might add, is a high-density surface-mounted IC with pins on all 4 sides and it is glued as well as soldered to the main board).
In the PSU, it is possible many electrolytic capacitors have gone funny, bulged, or leaked. Check and replace ALL caps as required; not just a couple, and check the IC regulator (IC1 is usually a problematic device in many DVD recorders). This IC is usually prefixed with STRxxxx (where x represents its type number) and is a 5-pin standard device. This is obtainable as a part. The cost will depend where you get it from.
If you are not tech. savvy, I suggest you submit the unit to an authorised service centre, for a quote, and a second opinion (on the likely causes and/or how many components are involved in the fault as well as economics of the overall repair), then make a decision afterwards, whether it's worth fixing or not. Up to you, but be warned, it could be an expensive exercise either way.
