Question about Panasonic PV-8400 VHS VCR

Panasonic PV-8400 Remote sensor not working?

Just purchased a 2nd Panasonic PV-8400 series Vcr.
Remote control unit works fine with my other VCR unit.
PV-8400 works fine from the front panel, but will not accept any input from the remote control unit, So I cannot changed any settings.
Is this a function of a faulty IR receiver in this VCR? or is there another problem?

This is indeed a faulty IR sensor. If it's just the sensor, swap with your good one to check. From memory they are plug in - a little device behing d the smoked translucent facia (display panel). I have come across this several times with Panasonic VCRs. Check whether the remote works at night time with all fluorescent lights in the room switched off. If so, the IR filter circuitry is faulty. Same solution - replace IR sensor on VCR.

We just purchased a Panasonic VCR/TV Universal remote for our PV-V4021 VCR and find we no longer have a user guide. How can we set the VCR to record at a later time, such as later in the evening? Where...


The problem with universal remotes is that unless you enter the correct code for that model not all functions will operate. You need to try every Panasonic code in the code book, untill you find one that works the guide function. Otherwise the only real solution is to get the original remote.

Can't use VCR


There's nothing wrong with your VCR. Your remote probably set to control your TV. To fix that, simply press the VCR button on the remote, and you should be fine. The "T-U" really means "TV," but the designers at Panasonic wanted to use the standard seven-segment display to cut costs, hence "T-U" instead of "TV."

Need remote code to control a Panasonic Omnivision VHS PV-M2079 TV/VCR combination


You need to program the VCR (which turns the sey on/off) as an aux, then program any Panasonic TV type for TV, and then set the STB button to control STB, TV and AUX and you should be set.

Remote code for PV-M1349


The secret is that the VCR code turns the set on/off and the TV code controlls the volume...try this:

Program the Verizon remote AUX button using the panasonic VCR codes until it turns the set on/off, program the remote for TV using the panasonic TV codes until it controls volume, then program the STB button to control all 3... STB, TV, and AUX. If you are missing any VCR or TV funtions try another respective panasonic code until all functions are available.

Panasonic VCR codes are 1089, 0062, 0189, 0252, 0643, 1062.
Panasonic TV codes are 0277, 0078, 0677, 1437.

To figure this out, I had to use the "what if none of the codes worked" section and figured I'd try the VCR codes since the TV codes would not turn it on/off.

Good Luck!

This unit has seperate power supplies for the DVD and VCR side and the DVD side supply seems prone to failure. I have not isolated the cause, but can tell you this will require a component level repair. Unless you are a tech you may as well buy a new unit.
