Panasonic DMR-EH75V will not respond to remote, new batteries and new remote. Tried repeating setup can't proceed since unit not responding. Unplugged unit and tried again. When remote "enter" pushed a U30 3 code comes up. Panasonic said unit IR receiver at fault and need to send for service.

    OK, Here is the solution to my problem of the remote not being recognized by the DVD. I called Tech support at Panasonic. Tech said that only the last number 3 was pertinent. She said the remote and DVD were not on the same code. The solution was to press the enter key of the remote while simultaneously pushing the #3 on the remote's keypad for several seconds. After which, the DVD was responsive to the remote and I was able to complete the setup. I had seen something like this in another post but, it was helpful to know the U30 was superfluous and only the 3 was important (apparently there might be settings #'s 1-3 which need to match). I hope this might help others with similar problems. I don't know how or why the remote and DVD became mismatched, just happy they are working now.

Hello Pamaral,
I have seen this problem a few times on the panasonic models and for some reason they fail quicker than they should. If your system is still under warranty you should send it in for service. If it is not, it would probably be a bit cheaper to go to a local repair shop and get an estimate as to the cost of replacing the defective IR sensor rather than sending it to panasonic where you will have to pay shipping and handling charges plus their parts and labor (which is like taking your car to a dealership for repairs and much more expensive than a local repair shop). Hope this helps and let me know if you need further assistance.

How do I stop my Panasonic DMR-EH75V DVD Recorder from automatically turnig itself off after 75 seconds?


It could be overheating.. Is it fairly consistent at 75 seconds? To test put the unit in the fridge for 30 minutes then quickly connect it up and test. If it is longer then 75 seconds then something is getting to hot. I've put hard drives (especially laptop ones) in the freezer if I need to copy off data but it clicks/stops working at room temp.

The remote just says set 2 and does nothing


Does the TV screen say Set 2 or the display area on the DVD recorder? The original remote for the DMR-ES35VS doesn't have a screen. (If you are using a universal remote, I'm not sure how to reset the unit.)

The Set 2 indicates that the unit was set to listen to a remote on the second wavelength available on these remotes. Your remote needs to be set to the same wavelength. Press and hold Enter and then press and hold 2 (for about 2 seconds) on the remote to set it to this option. Press Return to move back through the menu or exit the screen. (Panasonic provided this feature for those with several devices so that each remote wouldn't control a nearby device at that frequency.) To get the recorder to respond to the remote, they must be set to the same range. To check, press the Functions button. Under Other Functions > Setup > Remote Control Code, you can adjust the wavelength that the receiver is looking for. (Use the up/down arrows to select a sub-menu and the Enter key to enter the sub-menu. Use the left/right arrows to select options in the secondary menu.) If the unit doesn't respond, try a different wavelength. (Press and hold Enter and then press 1 or 3. There are only three possible options for the remote/receiver.)

For a screen capture of this, see page 19 of the manual; it is available from Panasonic here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES35V.pdf . An original remote is available from Remotes.com: http://remotes.com/remotes/servlet/rs?a=Search&o=c&uid=0&m=DMR-ES35VS&uuid=13262363222670 . It probably comes pre-programmed for Remote Code 1.

I hope this helps.

Remote controle


Easy to fix. The DMR E55 has 3 remote control code settings and your remote can be set for any one of them. The error you are getting at the moment means that your remote is set for one code but your DMR E55 is set for another. Why do Panasonic do this? The reason that Panasonic do this, is because if you have several Panasonic units, you can operate one of them from your remote without all of them responding at the same time. Ok, so how is it fixed? Turn on your DMR E55 and press FUNCTIONS then select SETUP. Then select OTHERS. You will see the remote option on the right which will say DVD 1 or DVD 2 or DVD 3, Try setting it to a different code and press return. You should get it to work...

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.

DVD recorder DMR EZ27EB


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.
