If unit is set to remote-2 then you need to change remote mode on remote itself as per unit to communicate, press and hold ENTER and 2 buttons on remote for 3 seconds to change remote mode on remote control, now unit will accept remote commands.
If you want to change remote mode on unit, go to menu and change remote option in unit then again change remote control mode accordingly.
Thanks.

It does no obey to any commands other than lighting up with the letters (RC1)


RC 1 or DVD 1 is the unit's default remote command mode. You can try the following with the remote:

While the unit is on, pick up the remote, then press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] and the number [ 1 ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Repeat the procedure if it makes no difference and the unit still ignores the remote. If it doesn't work, try new batteries, then repeat the above.

{ You can reset the unit if necessary (press and hold [ CH UP ] and [ CH DOWN ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds on the front panel (not the remote), until 'SETUP' appears in the display). }

Hopefully this should help a bit. You should not need to continuously reset either the main unit or the remote.

You can try changing the command mode of the (genuine Panasonic) remote itself, press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] and the number [ 3 ] button together for 5 - 10 seconds, then release. Then try the remote with the unit. If it still shows DVD 3 on its display, no matter which button is pressed, reset the main unit to factory default as outlined in the user manual (assuming this model recorder has a tuner, there would be channel buttons on the front - try pressing and holding [ CH/UP ] and [ CH/DOWN ] together - for 5 - 10 seconds, until 'SETUP' appears, then release). This may or may not restore your DVD unit to the default (DVD 1) command mode. (Don't forget to reset the remote back to DVD 1 if you do reset the main unit - press and hold [ ENTER/OK ] + the number [ 1 ] button together as above).

Your new remote may be set to DVD 1 by default while your unit is DVD 3 = different remote command modes.

While going through the setup procedure the Set 3 was accidentally changed to Set 1. Any activation of the Control setting only makes the unit go to "Set 1" It appears to be locked up at that...


You can try resetting the remote itself (this is necessary whenever the batteries are replaced). Remove the batteries, as if to replace them, press any key on remote (to clear its buffer) then reinsert them. Next step, since your unit is 'Set 1' (or remote command mode 1 - DVD1/RC1) - you could (on the remote) press 1 and OK/ENTER together - hold them for 10 seconds, then release.

This should restore the remote to the unit. If it doesn't, a workshop service may be required to reset the unit internally, but at a cost. Try the remote battery reset first (even try using new batteries).

  3. Keep them down for about 5 seconds
  4. Your remote should now work with the unit
  5. You can go to the set up menu and change the unit back to DVD3 if you wish, but you'll then need to repeat these steps using the "Enter" and "3" buttons

Dvd recorder remote control


Anytime your unit displays RC1, 2, or 3 - the remote code needs to be reset. Other messages are "chk remote n" or "set n", n being the number 1, 2 or 3. These remote codes are set in case you have multiple products that interact w/ the remote - so when operating one device the other doesn't interfere. Unfortunately, every now and then for completely unknown reasons, they can slip out of the proper code. All you have to do (if your remote is, in fact, functional) is press and hold the number on the remote that corresponds with that which displays on the unit - in your case the number 3, and hold the Enter key at the same time for about 5 to 10 seconds. This should resume operation shortly thereafter. However, you will not see any confirmation on the display as you are performing this reset. It is trial and error.

Buttons and Functions
Button Function

Clear................clears memory in Min/max display
Back of unit:
C/F....................Toggle between Celsius
or Fahrenheit temperature display
Scroll.................Remote Channel Scrolling ON/OFF

INSTALLING BATTERIES
IMPORTANT:Read the section SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER before installing the batteries for the first time.

1.Remove the rear cover of thermometer. Install 2 new AA batteries. Replace battery cover.
2.Loosen 4 screws on rear battery cover of the Remote Sensor and slide battery cover off.
3.Install 2 new AA batteries .
4.After batteries are installed, the remote sensor will begin transmitting and automatically register to the Thermometer
(within range) after several minutes. However, you can also press the small button in the battery compartment (labeled Tx) to register the Remote Sensor to the Thermometer immediately
5.Replace battery cover and tighten 4 battery screws. Make ure that the battery cover is fully on and tightened to assure a watertight seal.

SETTING UP THE THERMOMETER
The thermometer can monitor up to two different Remote Sensors on two separate channels. Add-on remote sensors can be purchased separately and are compatible with the GE Wireless Thermometer/Clock (model GE5805WS4) as well as this unit. When first installing, always insert batteries into the Thermometer first, then into the Remote Sensor.
The thermometer uses random security code technology-it will learn the random code of the first Remote Sensor it detects and log in as channel 1. Channel 2 will register in the same way. NOTE: Registered channels will be erased when the batteries of the Thermometer or Remote Sensor are removed. When replacing batteries for a Remote Sensor, remember to clear the corresponding channel of the Thermometer in this way:

1.Remove batteries from the remote sensor (step 2 of installing batterie)
2.Select the channel that you would like to clear by pressing the CH button on the Thermometer until this channel number is displayed.
3.Hold the CH button for 3 seconds to clear the channel
4.Follow steps 3-5

MOUNTING THE REMOTE SENSOR AND THERMOMETER
Remote Sensor is suitable for outdoor mounting (watertight) at a range up to 100 feet from the Thermometer. HOWEVER, HE UNIT SHOULD NOT BE MOUNTED IN A POSITiON WHERE IT WILL BE SUBMERSED IN WATER, OR EXPOSED TO DIRECT SUNLIGHT, OR NEAR OTHER SOURCES OF HEAT OR COLD (I won't bother typing the rest) except for:

LOW Battery icon for the sensor will show up on either the
ch 1 or ch 2 display depending on which sensor is losing battery power.

Battery life 6 months
Temp Range Therm 32 to 122 deg F
Remote Sensor -58 to 158 deg F *
*Alkaline batteries can freeze temporarily at temps below -4 deg F. In this condition, the Remote Sensor cannot accurately transmit temp info to the Thermometer. This limits the effective minimum temp fo the Remote Sensor to -4 deg F

Operational Range....>50ft(and up to 100ft)(less interferances)

RF Channel ....refresh to "---" if no signal received in 60 minutes
