Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

2 Answers

Remote control turns VCR and TV on, but does not allow us to rewind or play what has been recorded. A maintenance person thinks we probably need a new Remote Control. I tried to use "functions" to program the numbers and it seemed to lock it all up.

    I'm afraid the remote isn't going to solve my problem, when I tried another Panasonic remote the VCR window still read RC2. That is just what the window showed with my current remote

  • Proko Jul 01, 2008

    I will get the make and model for both the tv & VCR. I just wanted to add that both were working fine until I tried to program in the numbers on the VCR/remote. I used the "function" band and I didn't know what I was doing. Thank you for any help you can give. Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 01, 2008

    The Panasonic Recorder model # is DMR-EZ485V. The TV is Sony KV-20FS120, Serial # 4205827. Cecelia

    I'm not finding the suggested solution posted July 1 12:21 p.m. Am I looking in the wrong place? Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 01, 2008

    I do have a remote on order, but as I said, using a remote that works well with another recorder still does not work with ours. It shows RC2 in the VCR window. Any hint what that means? Tonight I'm going to try my old remote on this other system and see if it rewinds and plays. I'l get back tonight or tomorrow with the results. Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 01, 2008

    I'll try the function button again, but previously it did not bring up anything on the TV screen. It did show these various options when I thought I was programming the numbers which seemed to lock everything up. I'll try again. Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 01, 2008

    Doesn't sound silly at all, I did unplug everything, TV & VCR/DVD early on and yesterday a maintenance person did the same thing and no change in operations. I'm going to try the remote on another systerm tonight. I think I goofed up the VCR with playing with that function key. I'm going to try holding the function key tonight and see if I can get it to go through all the options. Glad to know what the RC 2 stands for.Thank you. Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 01, 2008

    Thank you - this all gives me new options! Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 02, 2008

    I pressed the Function button, followed by pressing the Power button & repeated this many times over a period of 30 minutes. Pressed the TV/VCR key followed by power button. The screen would show RC2, thenCll (channel 11 is where we have programed it to record from) and then when when I'd release both buttons it goes bace to RC2. I tried holding and holding, but no change. My question now is, do you think a new Remote will solve my problem? I just don't know what to do. Thanks again for all you help and advice. Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 03, 2008

    Those are the exact pages that got me into this problem. And I think I have tried this without getting any response, but I'm going to try again. Hopefully it will work. I may not have held buttons long enough. Thank you for your advice. It will be tonight before I have a chance to try this. Thanks. Cecelia

  • Proko Jul 03, 2008

    The reset on page 81 will be a something I haven't tried. Thanks you. Cecelia

Sounds like the code that operates the TV is the same code for the VCR. Could you provide the make and model of the tv and vcr and I can assist further.

Thanks in advance

    I am currently researching this problem for you, Have you tried pressing the function button then trying the remote(repeat this several time to go thru all function options)?

  • Patrick McGee
    Patrick McGee Jul 01, 2008

    RC2 means

    RemoteControl-II (RC2)



    I might be in remote learning mode, this might sound silly but have you tried unplugging the unit for a few moments and plugging back in.

  • Patrick McGee
    Patrick McGee Jul 01, 2008

    Just as an FYI when you hit the funtion key you should be changing the source(ie, input1, input2, etc), so if the function is on the wrong source the remote won't work. Also nothing will display on the screen as you are doing this, what I mean is press function followed by the power key, if nothing happens repeat the process until the power key actually works. You see the remote won't until it's on the proper function and without pressing power you won't know it is working. Does this make sense? I am trying to clarify what I said earlier. Also try the tv/vcr key followed by power repeat as above.

    Good Day again,



    After some very extensive digging I got hold of the manual.



    MUL
    .PDF">http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANP...



    See pg 79, it states RC* means the remote and main unit are using diffrent codes. So with that said see pg 57 under



    "Use this function to synchronize the codes for the remote

    control and the main unit."



    Make sure you follow steps 1-3 on pg 55, then use steps 4-8 on page 57 or this won't work. It has great pic's of the remote buttons, and this should auto set the remote. If you have trouble let me know and I can try to simply the process, I would type it all out but the manual has great pic's.



    If all else fails pg81 on how to reset the unit.



    Hope this helps,



    Keep me informed and good luck!

I would just go with a nice universal remote to program everything. This is a common thing with tv's the remote goes bad. You can order an exact replacement for the remote you have.

What do you do when your pause and rewind are not working on live tv programs?


Did they work before? For example, I bought my son a Samsung TV and the remote had rewind, pause etc. on the remote but they did not work. This is because the smart TV did not record the live image to allow this feature as it did not have any built in hard drive and I had to add a memory stick or hard drive into the USB port on the TV to allow the rewind, record and pause to work.

I lost the remote control, how can rewind the hsv tape. Thanks.


There should be a rewind button on the front of the main unit (usually indicated by either REW or 2 arrows pointing to the left), this should be next to the fast forward (again indicated by either F-FWD or 2 arrows pointing to the right) as well as PLAY and STOP - for the VCR. The only thing you would need the remote for is to set the clock and/or perform setup for the DVD player as well as timer recording. Try a universal remote which will make fast forward, play, stop, record (to VHS) and rewind easier.

Ambiuous Information out there


Hi,

I kind of think the people that wrote the manuals didn't bother hooking up a unit. Here is some help.

The converter box is nothing more then a tv tuner that picks up a digital signal and converts it into analog so your tv can view it.

The vcr, to record programs has to be set to channel 3 or 4 (whatever the converter box is broadcasting on) to record. The converter for the vcr will have to set to whatever channel you want to record from every time you use the vcr and left on as this is the only was the vcr can pick up a signal. Make sure the power saver on the converter box is set to off.

If your tv converter box has digital pass through, all you have to do is turn the tv converter box off and it your tv should pick up the singal from your vcr when you play tapes. You also use this method to access the menu on the vcr.

I cannot program the vcr to record i just do not know how to I can play tapes or wath the disk but cannot recore


make sure the tv is on channel 3, and the vcr also on channel 3 -if trying to record from cable or satalite. then make sure tape is rewound all the way. do a test by hitting record on vcr. let it record for a few minutes. rewind it, then just hit play. Dont change any channels until you are ready to record the program of choice. After this test. And recording is successful. Rewind the tape again. And change the channel to your choice. Hit record at time of or go into menu of your vcr and set up a time to record shows.

Magnavox TV/VCR COMBO


Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.

Actually, it's an MW24FP3 VCR unresponsive


After Checking Toshiba FAQ, it turns out that the record button must be turned off to do anything, including playback.

Problems with recording/rewind/fast forward


You probably have a bad power supply. But as you will learn, repairing any VCR will cost more than buying a new one.
