I have a KROSS DVB-T/DVD Combo player, It has set itself on to MP3 and does not recognise DVD disc's. I don't know how to change mode from MP3 to DVD. There is nothing in the instruction manual either. Can anyone help me please?
I think I have the same unit as yours.. a Kross TS-2818 - mine does not power up any more... I think the power board hasd gone... Are you still using yours and would you be interested in parts ??

Does it say anything like can't read disc, or just spins up and stops with no notification? Sounds like the DVD is scratched or maybe wrong format, its not a bluray is it? How old is the TV? If it hasn't played a DVD in a long time dust can collect on the lens, a Lens cleaner disc may help.
If the unit has a built in analogue tuner, the unit itself will still operate as normal, but without the built in analogue channels - to record a TV show, you would need to connect an external set top box to it (SD or HD - or both).
In other words, apart from a separate set top box, if required, there should be no need to change any of the unit's settings if it works as is. I do not believe this model has a built-in digital (DVB) tuner.
DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.
Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.
DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).
Not sure about manually changing from DVB to DVD but you could try and get the remote working first by pulling the remote apart and removing the red infared plastic part at the front of the remote, install new batteries and see try it out. Have seen this work on other remote units.
Here are the things that you need to do to isolate the problem:
1. Make sure that there's no disk inside the recorder. 2. Turn off the power from the unit (not using the remote). 3. Unplug the DVD from the wall / power outlet. 4. While being unplug, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and plug it back in while still holding down the power button and then release it.
If that will not do any help, change the C18 and C36 (both 2200uf at 10v). the C18 and C36 are on the power supply and most of the time, they are Green.
Try the next disc in the stack, and see if it will recognize the next one. If not, the problem is most likely the recording speed of the +R disc. Before you go changing disc types, however, I would also check the Record Mode you have set for the dub - if the REC Mode is set for XP, try changing the mode to SP and see if you have any luck. If it still won't work, try one of the tested +R discs:
SONY (2.4x, 4x, 8x, 16x)
Mitsubishi (4x, 8x)
Ricoh (2x, 4x, 8x)
Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program
Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
