SOURCE: DMR E55-P will not read DVD-R
Thank you for the information. Sorry that you are having such problems.
Nearly all the problems on ths DMR E55 are due to a faulty power board. The greatest load on the power supply is when the unit first reads discs and also when finalizing. Sometimes the unit cannot read discs and sometimes it continuously self checks.
Try replacing IC001 on the power board. This is a 5 pin regulator #STRG6353. This component gets very hot and the heatsink is poor. When I replace these, I use a larger heatsink and some heatsink paste which helps to prolong the life of the component. If you look at the regulator, you will see by the colour of the circuit board that it gets very hot. It fails after two or three years in all DMR E55s.
Be careful when you take the old regulator out because the print can lift away from the circuit board.
I have posted full instructions on how to replace the STRG6353 >HERE<
Hope this helps

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.

You need to install or update the Firmware. Go to www.panasonic.ca and search your model. You will then need to download the firmware for your player and burn it/mount it as an ISO file on to cd. Just follow the instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.
It took me about 25min, but it is working fine now.

Here is what you will need. This is assuming you do not have a HD cable box.
1) A two port cable splitter available at your local hardware or electronics store. VERY IMPORTANT- this splitter needs to pass up to 1000 mghz so you do not interfere with the functions of the cable box. Also, when purchasing this don't be fooled gold does not always equal good (a common mistake made by folks).
2) 1 small coax cable.
3) 3 Additional coax cables. (1 long enough to reach from the wall to the cable box. 1 long enough to reach from cable box to the TV. 1 long enough to reach from wall to the VCR. These cables should be RG6 coax cable (about the width of a standard wooden pencil)
4) 2 RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White)
Here is how you need to connect the cables....
1) Use the small coax cable and connect it from the WALL to the INPUT of the two way SPLITTER.
2) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the CABLE BOX.
3) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the CABLE BOX to the INPUT of the TV.
4) Use one of the coax cables and connect it to the OUTPUT of the SPLITTER. Connect the other end of this cable to the INPUT of the VCR.
5) Use one of the RCA cables and connect to the DVD/VHS COMMON OUT on the VCR. Connect the other end of this cable to the VIDEO IN on the back of the TV.
6) Use the other RCA cable and connect it to the VIDEO OUT on the back of the CABLE BOX. Connect the other end to the IN 1 on the back of the VCR.
Here is how to set up the VCR-
1) Tune the TV to the video input that you connected the VCR to.
2) Go to the auto program in the menus for the VCR and select "CABLE" as the source and you should now be able to get all the channels you would normally get without the cable box.
3) This will give you the option to record shows from basic cable on the VCR. While copying these channels you will still be able to tune the TV to CH 3 for the cable box and watch TV normally through the cable box.
4) If you want to copy one of the channels that is only available with the cable box you will still be limited to only being able to watch that channel while it is recording but here is how you will do it.

This is happening because your DVD is NOT all region, you need to change the Code.
