Question about Televison & Video
Root indicates that the DVD player is set to the Root of the hard disk drive, and for this reason does not display the DVD being played.
To get out of this feature you need to press the DVD menu on remote.
This is often a button with a disk picture on top or a button with DVD or Disk on it. Sometimes you have to press the Menu button. This depends on the model.
I can be more specific on the button to use if you give me info on make and model.
Please be patient after posting.
Also some model does reset back to TV after disconnecting power cord.
Regarding display on TV, if ther is no picture at all, then you may have to set the input source. If DVD is in root mode you should also have an on screen menu from DVD player. A control bar I mean, even with static.If there is nothing, ensure that the source is set to the DVD unit.
First get out of root mode, give me model info if the above did not work.

This Error Message usually indicates a Hardware Fault. This is a common problem on most of the Players.
The problem seems to be with the capacitors on the circuit board. I recommend a reset. Switch off and disconnect it from power supply/batteries. Also disconnect any other units connected to it. Leave this disconnected for 30 minutes. All the electric charges stored should drain out. It should do a soft reset itself, then restart it.
You can try to open and clean it with a compressed air. The dirt could be causing it. Also look for loose connections inside the unit. Please take precaution while opening the unit as there might be high voltages present inside.
If this doesn't solve your problem then a component on circuit board will need replacement.. most likely capacitors have gone bad and cant hold charge anymore..If individual components are not available the whole circuit board will need replacement.
Opening up the unit will void the warranty. You can try to call manufacturer and see if they will take/repair the unit. or they will be able to give you a quote for repair. You can find the contact phone number in the manual..
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Actually root is merely the startup menu on many dvd players. your player may not be broken at all. Insert a dvd and push play. J.

all you need to do is use the DVD Service Disc that you got when you bought your DVD player,, or go to www.panasonic.com and e-mail them about getting the codes removed so you can play overseas DVD, they sent me a disk for FREE and guess what it worked,,,, it comes with the instructions, here is what it says,,,
INSERT DISK- and confirm "STOP" is displayed...
