Question about Panasonic DMR-ES40V DVD-Video Recorder

1 Answer

Panasonic DMR-ES40V, error codesF60 & U99...

When turning on the ES40V, it has given the U99 or F60 error codes. It will not reset itself or allow for any power to be turned on. I can not eject the DVD player either.
The original error prior to these codes: the audio would play but the picture would only be a still on the VCR. It wouldn't sync up with the playing of the video with the audio.
Help please.

    Same problem. Contacted Panasonic. Technician indicated that there is a problem between the CPU and the timer. The unit is three years old and out of warranty, so he offered Panasonic's service at $120 for labor plus any parts. I paid about $420 and did not use it a lot. Looks like I will be opting for a new DVD player, no VHS component, and hope that it lasts longer.

So I gave it one more try. I pressed and held the REC on the Power button for about 10 seconds, which reset the unit. Then I was able to play a DVD and eject it.

Hope this helps with your unit.

Ron, F60 is a general error code usually related to a failure on the video processing board. You could fix this by just replacing that board. Try to place it in standby mode first by unplugging it, wait a couple of minutes and then plug it back in. When the 000000's starts, hold down the power button for 15-20seconds. The unit should then be in standby mode. From this mode try to start it normally using the power button and see if it cleared the error. You could also try a complete reset by powering the unit off and press and hold the "Stop" and "Channel Up" buttons at the same time for a few seconds while powering the unit up. Hope this helps, good luck.

F60 ERROR CODE ON PANASONIC DMR-ES40V


Unplug the unit for 24-hours. I know, it should not take that long, but in this case I tried shorter periods WITHOUT success!

Just before plugging in unit depress and hold POWER button. You are supposed to hold it for 30-seconds after plugging in, but in my case I did it for 60-seconds. This results in a MASTER RESET that clears all errors, resets interlocks, etc. I could not get past a DVD failure problem, but when I discovered this process everything worked fine!!

Good luck! Hope it works for you too.

Panasonic DMR-ES46V shows F60 Error


I have same problem with es40v - f60 error with no response to troubleshooting protocol. This machine also was used very little & also has a history of turning itself on. Panasonic used to make high quality products. A shame that their products are no longer trustworthy. I can understand that machines break - i'm very frustrated to learn replacement parts are not available. Guess i need to re- think brand loyalty.
