Panasonic DVD/VCR message U61

Message U61

  • wolfmanx4 Jan 04, 2009

    I was transferring movies to dvd when in the middle of the movie the dvd player just came up with the screen saying there may be a disc error and needs to do a self check to try to fix the disc. After the test it failed. Now the U61 message will NOT go away. The machine keeps saying the self check failed. I even unplugged over night and re-tried with no results.

SOURCE: Panasonic DMR-EZ47V combined VCR/DVD has a U61

The service manual says that:
U61 = The unit is carrying its recovery process (with no disk in the tray) . If there is a disk remove it and restart the unit . This is the message that appears when the system's firmware crashed because of an incorrect command - normal operating procedure, just wait for it to finish. If the message doesn't goes away in 10 minutes after a power cycle you should force it: press the Ch UP and Ch DOWN buttons until the DVB Auto-Setup message appears on the screen.
If nothing you do has an effect and you haven't done anything to the unit when this message appeared then the fault is hardware - the processor of the unit has failed. The only way to fix that is to replace the mainboard. But that would cost about $175, more than a new unit, so it's time for a new one.

Nothing is happening because the firmware can't recover/repair the error. Yes, you must take your unit to a dealer, this is a hardware fault and the faulty part must be replaced.

Panasonic dmr-es46v player recorder error code u61. what do i due


Hi,

That error means: There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not broken. Wait until the message disappears.

I suggest you unplug all the cords o the unit and after 2hrs replug and see if the error is gone.

Let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.
