    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.

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.

Won't Record


Hi,

Did you format the disc with the unit or with a PC?

Remote control has stopped working


If you have replaced the batteries with KNOWN GOOD ones, observed the proper polarity when re-installing the batteries AND made sure the remote is in DVD "mode" (if it is a multi-remote) when trying to use it, the remote is bad. Replace the remote.

How do i access the Hard Drive out of a Wharfedale DVDR24HD160F 160GB HDD DVD Recorder


hmm...similar problem here. i've taken the hdd out and plugged it in to the ide port inside my pc. The problem is it's the wrong file system. Your pc will not see it. It is however just a normal hdd so you can re-partition it and give it a new file systm ie ntfs but you lose all the data :(. that's as far as i've got, hope it helps someone.

Polaroid Will NOT edit out Commercials!


You need to post edit the recording;
First unprotect then do a split before the commercial
than split after, then recombine the parts without the ad.
Cumbersome, but it works
