    I think what I am trying to do is synchronize the codes for the remote and the main unit. I tried holding the function key, but do not get the "Other Functions" on the screeen so cannot go forward with the set up process. I also tried using a pointed object to hold the reset. After doing that several times, I did get "Language" on the screen - with English highlighted, but none of the arrow keys will work. Now the clock flashes 12:00 a.m. and I cannot use the function key to reset the clock. Along the way, the VCR window showed SP & IN 1. That is the most response I have gotten all through this process. I do have a new remote control on order to be delivered on July 8th. I can only hope that will help my problem. Thanks again for reviewing the process and giving your advice. Cecelia

May be 4 to 6 screws holding on the cover. Remove the cover to access the disc.

SOURCE: DMR-EZ485V -- slideshow of JPEG pictures not in correct sequence

Adjust pictures sequence before burning? usually they can be sorted by file name, date photo taken, date modified.

Some slideshow software also allows you to drag pictures to any position in sequence you want, say Wondershare Movie Story I am using.

SOURCE: Panasonic DMR-EZ485V. Remote stopped working when

Panasonic website under FAQs. Using code shown on dvd readout,
such as RC2, press 2 & enter or ok, hold for 2 seconds, and machine
will reset connection between remote & dvd recorder. So stupidly simple it works.

I'm having the same problem.. says HELLO and won't do anything else. I can turn it off by holding the off button for 10 seconds. It doesn't play VHS or DVDs and doesn't even come up with a signal anymore....anyone with any advice? I've only had it for a year - is this totally broken or what?

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.

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.

Remote doesn't work for DVD Recorder

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.
