That's very strange, I have not seen a Panasonic do that before.
There are two things I would try.
1) Remove the batteries from the remote controller. This will rule out the possibility of the buttons making contact due to moisture or a fault in the controller. Then see if the problem occurs.
2) Unplug the power cable from the DVD recorder and leave it disconnected for at least 30 minutes before reconnecting it. This will reset your machine in case something has been corrupted.
3) When you have reconnected it, check the programme settings to make sure they are all clear.
4) Your machine could be picking up some radio interference if there is a transmitter close by. This is an unlikely cause, but if you suspect it, try plugging your machine into a different power socket and re-route the connection cables.
This particular model, like numerous Panasonics, suffers with an overheating regulator on the power board. They almost all fail from about two years onwards. The regulator gets very hot during normal operation and is not adequately protected from thermal runnaway. Regulator faults can cause a number of problems such as continuous self checking, switching off, and not reading certain discs. I have not known the regulator to cause unprovoked recording, but there can always be a first time. If the regulator is causing problems, the unit is easy for an engineer to repair. I can provide information on how to repair faulty Panasonic regulators if you need it.

Use the remote's "Code search" feature. It'll run through every code in it's database and when you see the player turn off, you store the code. If non of the codes work, then it's not compatible.
Hope that fixed ya...
