Hello.
Since I haven't seen any other responses, I thought I'd share my experiences with you. I'm sorry, this is only a comment, and not a solution.
I had the same issue with my DMR-ES15 over 2 years ago, for which I was never able to find a solution. So, I sent it off to Panasonic for their 'out of warrantee' repair, for a hefty price. (Could have bought new, but really liked the features of the ES15.) So, got it back from Panasonic, and it worked well for another 2 years. (Their 'out of warrantee' repair warrantee was only 90 days. This always seems to be a gamble.) Unfortunately, it died it's second death a few weeks ago. Since '2 lives' are probably more than to be expected for this kind of disposable electronic device, I won't pursue another repair. (By the way, it is increasingly difficult to find a stand-alone DVD recorder (with no VCR) with a tuner in it.)
Sorry it's not better news, but I'll follow-up if I find any additional info.

U 61 code, how do i fix this


U61 • There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not broken. Wait until the message disappears.

If fail unplug and hold power button for a minute or two and turn it on and repeat.

These seems to be for all similar ranges.

I load up my Panasonic DVD recorder and it has built in freeview as well. Every time i load up my box it comes with up with U61 error and the machine makes a funny noise while trying to load the DVD drive...


The unit is carrying out the recovery process without a disc in the tray. The unit detected an error while recording or playing without a disc in the tray. The recovery process restores the unit to normal operation. Have the unit power cord unplug for about 5 minutes, then reconnect. If issue still exist have unit service.

U61 error won't go away


I've solved my problem - thanks to a suggestion on another site. Apparently the machine is sensitive to the type of disc when it has a problem - I inserted an identical make and type of disc (RW in my case) and it then completed its 'restore to normal operation' and the error msg went away.

Also suggested but didn't work in my case was opening the flap on the front, and with the machine OFF, press and hold STOP and Channel UP.

Hope this helps

Error code U61 on a panasonic DMR-ES35v When I turn it on it says "Please Wait" end the code U61 occurs after som while.


The manual refers to the U61 as being a recovery mode. Have you left it at U61 for a period of time while it tries to recover?
U61 ≥There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is
carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not
broken. Wait until the message disappears.
You could always try to force it into standby mode and back out again:
Press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit to switch the unit to standby.
Now press [í/I, POWER] on the main unit again to turn the unit on.
If that doesn't take care of it, everything thing I've found points toward a replacement of components inside the system by a repair service. Hopefully you are still under warranty!

Model No'DMR-ES15 - U61problem


I get this message occasionally on my Panasonic DMR-ES15. It's actually a really simple fix. It occurs when there is a corruption in the disc which causes the recording mechanism to malfunction. There is a separate error message for this, however it is usually not detected until it's too late. When the recorder asks you to carry out the recovery process, do it. When the disc ejects, make sure you take the disc out that was in there when it occured and throw it away...it will keep happening because the disc is permanently corrupted. However, do not close the tray without a disc or the self-check will fail. Instead pop in a disc of the same format that the error occured in (if it was DVD+RW then put in a DVD+RW). It resolves the problem every time on the first try. (It only happened two times in a year and a half for me). As the manual says the unit is "NOT BROKEN".
