Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ17 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

HELP THE REMOTE STOPED WORKING AND IT KEEPS POPPING UP RC1 ON THE DISPLAY AND WE CANT USE THE REMOTE FOR ANYTHING i WAS WONDERING IF THERE WAS A RESET BUTTON ON THE COMBO OR IF THERE IS A WAY TO RESET IT? I too am having the exact same issue with my remote displaying RC 1 when attempting to use it. This is the only thing the remote does once it's powered on. Oddly, if the unit is off, the remote will turn the player on. From there, it's RC 1 and nothing else. It will not power the player off. I tried new batteries (obvious, yes) and then I tried unplugging the unit, hoping it might sort of reboot or recouple with the remote when plugged back in. No such luck. My model is the DMR-EZ17.

It does no obey to any commands other than lighting up with the letters (RC1)

RC 1 or DVD 1 is the unit's default remote command mode. You can try the following with the remote:

While the unit is on, pick up the remote, then press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] and the number [ 1 ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Repeat the procedure if it makes no difference and the unit still ignores the remote. If it doesn't work, try new batteries, then repeat the above.

{ You can reset the unit if necessary (press and hold [ CH UP ] and [ CH DOWN ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds on the front panel (not the remote), until 'SETUP' appears in the display). }

Hopefully this should help a bit. You should not need to continuously reset either the main unit or the remote.

Panasonic DMR- EA18 DVD player/recorder - Remote control Problem

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!!

Your DMR is telling you that it is set to listen for RC2 but your remote is transmitting RC1.

Two choices for a fix:

1. Put the remote back into RC2 mode by simply holding both the ENTER and 2 button for at least 5 seconds.


2. Reconfigure the DMR to listen for RC1 by going into the function menus and selecting SETUP. Look for the remote control option. Change it to 1, it will currently display the value 2.

Dvd recorder remote control

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.
