try replacing the batteries to the remote
look for reset on remote, most of the time when you remove the batteries from th remote should reset it self, while the batteries are out of the remote just push a few buttons to make sure the device is out of power than replace the batteries with new one. you mite have to turn on tv manual and than start using the remote, if that fails. than contact the manufacture ask for service and talk to a service techn.

If disk door wont open - stays locked

I called Samsung who suggested pushinhg the play button on the panel and the power button on the remote together. "No disc" eventually showed on the screen and pushing the open/close door button worked.

However, my remote wouldn't work, even after changing batteries.
The machine did play. Unfortunately, later that night I tried another DVD and it locked up again. The next day I tried the above 2-step and it worked again, so maybe the other DVD caused trouble. But I cant get my remote to do anything except the 2-step listed above.

I don't use the player very often.

Just bought a Toshiba refurbished DVD/VCR player. The remote doesn't work at all. I've doublechecked the NEW batteries and tried a tip of pushing EVERY button with the batteries out. Any ideas

1) the batteries will be the same type and full charged
2) clean the contacts battery from dirty, dust, oxide or corrosion
3) retight the spring contacts battery with pliers for a GOOD contacts
4) open the remote.control and clean the keypads switch, from dirty, dust, oxide, Open contacts, or Bad contacts. they emite a good signal infrared from SYScon transmi vs Syscon receiver.
see the block diagram. If doesnot resolve the problem go to the repair shop TV for fix it.
God bless you

The player will start with the power button on the unit the dawer will open and close and the unit will load and start running but the remote does not seem to work to start the unit. new batties wer...

Check that the batteries are inserted properly and that they are in the right way, if either of the batteries is not in the position its ment to be, it won't work.

you would need a Special IR camera to see any light from the remote so that seems like a silly solution to me.

The remote is not working if you can't turn the device off or change channel. You might want to try another remote to confirm that your device actually receives the signal and works, if it does work with another remote, the remote you have is broken.

Panasonic DMR-ES45V - DVD recorder / VCR combo Remote not workin

My remote is not working. When I press a button, I get the following message on my unit: U12, U30, SET #, CHK REMOTE #, or RC #. What can I do to fix this? The message displayed means that the remote control and unit are not communicating and the remote needs to be programmed. To program the remote, press and hold the same number that is displaying on the unit and the [ENTER] or [OK] button for more than 2 seconds. For example, if the unit displays “SET 2”, press and hold [2] and [ENTER] or [OK] for more than 2 seconds.

Problem with remote

This fixes the *Set 1* problem. Set 1 means the remote cannot communicate with the Panasonic DVR. If the batteries go out on the remote replace the batteries stand in front of the Panasonic DVR, press and hold the "1" button and the *enter* button at the same time and hold for 10 seconds.
