My remote is locked out and it shows dvd2. I have been unable to get into the correct setup menu to rectify this problem. The item is new and and this happened when I was trying to set it up for the first time.
Please can you help. (firstname.lastname@example.org)

If you point the remote towards sensor, simultaneously hold down the number (1, 2, etc) you want AND the enter button for 5 or more seconds it should switch to the number pressed. Remember if you have a second one, make sure it's off or put towel over its remote sensor. Sue
It´s is easy to solve. Your DVD was seted to DVD1. Push enter button plus 1 no remote control.
Now you are able to commnad your DVD and go to System Menu and change to DVD3 again.
After it, don´t forget to backup your remoto control to DVD3. Push enter button plus 3
Go to your DVR and manually turn the DVR off. Press the STOP button for two or three seconds. The DVR COMMAND MODE setting will display in the DVR window. (DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3)
Set the remote to the COMMAND MODE setting that was diaplayed by depressing both the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same time for 3 seconds.
You can now use the remote to set the DVR to the desired COMMAND MODE. To do this depress SYSTEM MENU on the remote and go to SETTINGS and then COMMAND MODE. Select either DVD1, DVD2 or DVD3. Once you delect a setting that is different from what was set, your remote will stop working again.
Reset your remote to the desired COMMAND MODE by depressing the remote ENTER key and the desired number key (1, 2 or 3) and holding them both at the same time for 3 seconds. The remote should now control the DVR.
Look into your manual that came with your dvd recorder for DMR-E80H, Page 46, Changing the Remote Control Code. My child played with a remote control as well and reconfigured it as well. In the manual, you have explanation how to configure your remote control again to work.
I had the Exact same problem, after finding nothing on the net I called
Panasonic customer-Support and they gave me the information which led
to the solution:
If your DVD screen reads 'remote DVD2':
Press and hold simultaneously the "2" & "Enter" buttons (for more than 20 seconds)
If the screen said remote DVD3 then you would hold "3" & "Enter"
What I found happens when this command is accepted, the DVD screen changes to display the channel & counter
e.g. "A2 0:00.26"
If the screen changes back to "Remote DVD2" this means that the signal
from the remote control has been interrupted (you stopped pressing, or
the batteries have become weak.)
Providing the batteries have power, try again remembering to hold the "Enter" and number displayed after DVD.
The first time I did this it seemed to take forever (more than 30secs.), but other times it's been accepted in 6 secs.
Had the same problem when I changed the factory settings by mistake. There is no "cancel" button in the remote or the set. What worked for me was to follow the directions on P. 22 of the manual and change the remote settings to DVD 1. This is done by holding the "Enter" button and pressing number 1 on the keypad simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. Then, you go back to the "Settings" screen with the "Settings" button, change the control back to DVD 3, and reverse the setting in the remote by pressing "Enter" and the number 3 this time. Remember to hold them down more than 5 seconds. Good luck!
I had the problem where when i would try to use my remote, it would say "check remote2". I've got a DMR-E55. I called panasonic and they told me to hold down the "enter" and "2" button for about 10 seconds. then it worked. hope it works for you too.
