    thanks for the tip on the camcorder. It does work and shows that the remote is still operational.
    Armed with that, any suggestions on where to go from here. Is it just a matter of having the unit serviced, or is there anything anyone knows of that I can try myself? I didn't say in the original post that the unit is a Hitachi.
    Cheers

The camcorder test is a new one on me, we repair lots of remotes the most usual cause of troublwe is liquid spillage first remove screws if any then carefully prize the two halves of the case apart remove the PCB and the rubber membrane the membrane side of the PCB will look sticky and wet clean with Isoprypl alcohol also the membrane reassemble fit new batteries and try.

YOU CAN VERIFY THAT IT IS NOT WORKING BY RECORDINGTHE FREQUENCY WITH A CAMCORDER. To do this, you simply point the remote at the camcorders lens while recording and press buttons (with good batteries in the remote). Next, play back the recording and you will see the remotes output flashing if it is working....and of course, no flashes means the remote is dead. Remotesare pretty much useless to fix because it is cheper to replace them. You can look for the same remote on Ebay or go to Walmart to buy a Universal Remote that you can program.

Hi there and welcome to Fixya!
This error indicates that the processor is not able to communicate with your External Hard Disk.
I'm pretty sure you've already tried connecting the External Hard Disk to a different computer. If not, this is the best time to do it to isolate the issue. If you're having the same issue with other computers, then the problem lies with the External Hard Disk. There's a possibility that it's damaged, corrupted or infected by a virus. If it's still under warranty, get assistance with the manufacturer. If it's not, try checking the cable for any physical damaged, or better yet try a known good working cable.
Also, try restarting the computer when the External Hard Disk is connected to see if the computer can check its volume during the reboot. If the External Hard Disk failed to load after restarting, it is a possible virus issue. I would suggest running the most up-to-date antivirus software that you can find to scan your system and the external hard disk itself.

Panasonic DMR-EX88 recorder was working fine but remote has stopped working so cant get to the hard drive (can still play a disk by pressing play on the unit). Remote started working intermittently, now...


Either the remote itself is exhibiting strange behaviour, or the unit's IRD controller circuit (and/or the IRD itself) is faulty. Perhaps when you changed the batteries, the remote needs to be 're-commanded' (that means entering a remote code by pressing and holding 2 buttons together for 10 seconds - example - 1 + ENTER/OK) - this should be done whenever the batteries are replaced. If this does not restore the remote to full control, then the IRD (and/or its controller circuit) is the most likely suspect; or, worst case scenario; your remote is defective. I hope it isn't the latter.

I suggest you submit the unit to an authorised service centre for a quote (since this is not a disc drive replacement/alignment it shouldn't be too expensive) then you can decide for yourself afterwards as to what further action to take. Up to you, it is not unfixable. You can always ask Panasonic directly for straight answers and get a second opinion at the same time.

I hope you do not need a new remote at this stage.

Transcend 320GB is recongized as "unformatted"


Here is an article with some ideas on how to solve issues with an external hard disk.

If it does not work, one last option is to take the hard disk out of the case and connect it directly to the SATA or IDE interface in your computer.

Formatting disks for EDSR1600


The EverFocus EDSR Security DVRs use standard PC Parallel (PATA) hard drives. I have used ATA100 and ATA133 speeds with no problems. There are no PC-type settings required except as below. The DVR has it's own internal firmware and will format the drive to its requirements.

If you are using a SINGLE drive tray, the largest hard drive I know will work is 500 GB. Set the drive to Master and you are done with the hardware setup. (CS Select would also probably work.)

If you are using BOTH drive trays, the largest hard drive EverFocus says will work on the EDSR100 or EDSR110 is 320 GB. Set both drives to Master and you are done with the hardware setup. (CS-Select on both would also probably work.)

Do NOT set any drive to Slave!

Lock the drive trays; if you don't the DVR will not go into record.

Press the STOP key and then press the MENU button. Go into the SYSTEM menu and do a DISK RENEW. This will erase the hard drive and also prepare it for DVR recording.

Do this by using ► or ◄ to select DISK RENEW. Change NO to YES (by using ▼ or ▲) and press the ENTER button. Highlight YES again by using ► or ◄ and again press the ENTER button.

Press the MENU button to exit and reboot the DVR. Then press RECord and you should be recording.
