I have been experiencing frequently a problem with DMR-E95H unit when neither of remote control or unit front buttons work requiring me to reset the unit by unpluging it from power and powering it up again.
How to troubleshoot and fix it ?

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.
Actually, you are sort of correct, in a sense, RC1 means remote command mode 1 (the default mode of your combo unit). There is one way you can try to fix this:
Remove the batteries from the remote, press any button on it to clear its existing memory buffer, then re-insert them or replace them with new ones. While unit is on (no DVDs or tapes in it), point the remote at it - press and hold 1 and ENTER/OK buttons together for 10 seconds, then release.
This should (in most cases) restore full remote command operation to your combo unit - if when you press a channel button on it, and the unit's front channel changes, the remote is now functioning as it is meant to.
The good news is this will constitute any workshop repairs or costs (except perhaps new batteries for the remote if required).
I assume this combo unit has basic front panel buttons (behind the right-hand door - where the copy button is) - there should be a drive select (VHS or DVD) button stop play record. I strongly advise if you really need a remote for this model, particularly when it comes to menu/setup options, that you search various online and similar stores for one.
The cost will depend where you go and who you deal with - and if the remote is available (you can always ask Panasonic about a remote for a DMR-EZ48V even though your model may be a DMR-EZ47V - they both use the same remote (N20AYB000136 or equivalent number); they can probably tell you how to order one through them, the price, etc.
A universal remote may work, but with limited functions. If the combo unit works in general, you should not have too much trouble obtaining a replacement remote (just keep in mind the model above).
The remote may cost just over $100 but remember, this is only if you want full control of your combo unit.
Your problem may be Panasonic's common capacitor failures. Open case and look for capacitors with bowed out top and yellow substance. Replace both with higher rated capacitors from Radio Shack. Will need some soldering skills. Look on this site for "solder c1260 c1261"
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!!
