Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I can not unlock the ratings (kiddy lock) for DVD playback on my Panasonc Model No. DMR-ES40V, serial no. LJ5l A005327, DVD/VHS player/recorder. The unit is set on a 0 rating which does not allow any DVD to be played. The default is a setting of 8 which should allow any DVD to be played. I can not get passed the password to the ratings settings. I don't know if someone put a password in place or not. I have tried a quesses which did not work. Is there a way to reset the password or bypass it. Resetting to all default setting in the setup mode does not change the rating of 0 which prevent the playing of DVDs.

Here is the workaround provided by Panasonic: Power unit on. Open DVD tray. Press and hold REC and PLAY on the machine itself for over 5 seconds. If done correctly the DVD tray will remain open. The ratings password setting will return to the default (no password). The rating will return to the "8" default.

Good Luck and please accept the answer

EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS IN MY LETTER BELOW.


1. On your remote, find the record mode button; it is near the bottom on the left side. This button sets
the recording speed for the DVR. Faster recording speeds provide higher quality recordings.
2. Look at the display on the front of the machine: it should say XP ( records 1 hour on the disc,)
SP ( 2 hours, ) LP ( 4 hours, ) or EP ( 6 hours. ) You can also set it to record 8 hours on a disc,
but the quality of the recording will be poor.
3 Press the record mode button until the screen displays the recording speed that you want.
4 Note: if the powers fails or the Machine is unplugged, the machine will automatically reset itself to
SP mode.

Panasonic ES40v - Can't play DVD's - Incorrect region


I had the same trouble, also wouldn't play back discs that I recorded using it. The commonly listed reset of channel up and down at the same time was not meant for this model.
Below is the official solution that was sent to me by panasonic.
After using this method to reset my player it worked great. it was just like taking it out of the box for the first time.

VHS play back


I am having the same split screen black and white problem. I don't think anything simple will fix this. I have looked into the unit and almost all the video processing happens on one little PC board under the DVD. I think that the capacitors on the bottom of this board are at fault, as there have been MANY noted failures of Panasonic Professional DVC decks due to these type capacitors failing.
