this unit has an optical-eye, not recording heads. opening the drawer then unplugging unit will expose the eye. never look into the eye when unit has power. this x-ray can and will burn your owh eyes lens&retina. good luck. clean with 90% isopropyl alcohol and q-tip. mch

If you take it apart an clean it with alcohol it might work. Many times it's the sticky stuff that shorts an clogs up the device. , try it to see cant lose.

My DMR-ES10 appears since last month, the same message, and lets myself crazy!

Today, after a desperate try, pressing the buttons, I found the solution:

Simple press the POWER BUTTON and STOP BUTTON of the unit for a few seconds...

VOILá: The UNLOCK message appears in the display and the unit return to operate without the lock message !!!

For Lock again, press the same buttons at same way until appears the Lock message in the display.

This is an undocumented command...

I hope to help you!

Just found the answer in another post, it works.

Hold down the "1" button and the "Enter" button together for about 10 seconds while pointing at the player. This seems to "reset" the remote and everything works fine.

You know, that's a good question and one that I wanted answered with this recorder's many problems. But there is not one, I'm afraid. I just kept researching on the net until I found enough solutions to figure out repairs. However, I have one that is still running strong after 4 years (with minor tweaks) and one I just had to chuck. Post your problem and you may find a solution. If it's electronical rather than User, you might be out of luck and better off looking at newer brands. If it is just a User hiccup, most are pretty easy to figure out, especially after someone tells you what it is !!! Good Luck.

Try changing your settings from RGB to Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr. Its in the BD/DVD Video Output Format settings. Seems there has been a firmware bug and this is the current fix.
