The remote control just stop working couple of days ago. I thought it needed new batteries, but after the batteries are replaced, it still did not work. I have to operate the machine manually. Does this DVD/VCR have manual pause feature?

Eventually the front panel display will show "SERV" (after its "HELLO" messages). Anyway, pressing  then  on the Remote Control tells me that I have an Error Code of "04" which is a Digital PCB or Communication Error (whereas an Error code of "02" means a "Defect of RAM drive"). (To exit from Service Mode, press  then  which should get you back to "SERV" and then POWER-OFF the machine). Hopefully, your manual will display your error codes.
Perhaps the remote control is not set to the same control code as your DMR-ES40V. Codes may be set to 1, 2, or 3 on the remote by holding down the enter button and one of those number buttons for several seconds at the same time. The factory default is code 1. Try 1 first. If that doesn't work try 2. If that doesn't work try 3. If one of those codes doesn't work you may have a bad remote or a bad sensor on your machine. On DMR-ES35V models the sensor is located just to the right of center behind the black window
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.
It is now working. The DVD is below a Panasonic TV. We blocked the tv remote sensor and the DVD remote started working. We have unblocked the tv sensor and the dvd remote is still working. I'm not sure what was wrong or how exactly we fixed it.
I have had this happen nore than once. If you press the 1 button and hold it down. At same time press and hold the enter button for 2 or more seconds. Your remote will now be set to the system. Some models have a device code of 2 or 3. If your not sure what your device code is start with #1 device code.
I called tech support and their answer was simple!
Error Code U30 1.......the fix, press and hold the number one (1) on your remote and at the same time press and hold the ENTER button for 10 seconds while pointing the remote at the units sensor.
Automatically, my unit returned to normal and all my buttons on my remote returned to operational mode!
So, it was confirmed by Vincent at Panasonics tech support, that error codes U30's are rare, but it's a system safety feature. If you were to come across an error U30 2, you would push and hold the number 2 while pressing and holding down the ENTER button....so on and so forth.
Is the Remote Control sensor in direct fluorescent lamp light or other strong
sources of light?
Press unit POWER button down over 7 seconds. The POWER indicator goes
out. If the Power was On, the screen will also disappear. After 5 seconds, turn
Power On and operate unit normally. If the steps above do not restore normal
operation, disconnect then reconnect the AC plug and turn the power On.
If that does not work, Panasonic offers free tech support 6 days a week 1-800-211-7262 (pana).
I have the same model, i pressed Function key(on remote), enter, using up and down arrow keys, select Setup, Remote control code, press 1,2 or 3, then enter. The code on the unit has been set. You must use the same code for the remote control by pressing enter and hold for about 2 seconds at the same time pressing corresponding 1,2 or 3 you selected for unit. This makes the unit and remote compatible with each other. you only change this code if you have other panasonic products that respond to this same remote control. hope that helps.
The remote control code is wrong. Change to the correct code. The batteries are depleted. Replace them with new ones. Point the remote control at the remote control sensor on the main unit. Remove obstacles between the remote ccontrol and the main unit. Remove dust from the transmission window and the unit's sensor. Colored glass may obstruct the signal reception/transmission. Don't place the signal sensor in direct sunlight or in areas that be subject to sun exposure. It may be necessary to set the code on the remote control again after changing the batteries. It may be necessary to set the manufacture code again after changing the batteries.
I hope this info can be of some help to you. Ms Tanya 2/12/08 4:02AM CST.
