DMR-ES30V remote and DVD panel buttons not responding

My grandchild was playing with the remote, pushing buttons and such, which I later discovered some buttons on the remote and on the main unit seem locked. My remote and front panel dvd recorder buttons seem locked - the vhs panel buttons work but do not work on the remote. The remote Joy stick (<) (>) and (up) buttons do not work but the (down) button and (Enter) works. Can not adjust any menu items or navigate across or up because the (>) and (up) keys on the remote seems locked. Hard Reset (holding chennel keys on main unit down) does not restore the system. The other forced power off and reset does not restore the normal function. Does not seem to be the child lock feature, although can not activate child lock. Would like to reset for all factory settings, including the units remote ref to mode 1. Is there a service setting or inside cover full factory reset pin to ground for a complete reset to factory settings?

I assume you have fixed this by now, but if not, call panasonic's help line (number is in your owner's manual). They will walk you through the complete reset process (maybe 5 minutes). you will have to re-program everything the same as you did when it first came out of the box, but that doesn't take too long. Also, first try taking the batteries out of the remote. Make sure they are still good. Wait 60 seconds or longer, then replace batteries.

How to get unit to play without remote


You can probably use the front panel buttons (STOP PLAY OPEN/CLOSE etc) manually, the only thing you cannot do without the remote is access certain DVD menus, including subtitles/language/special features etc. You can always obtain and use a universal remote for basic menu functions later on if necessary.

To play a DVD movie without the remote, simply load your preferred disc, wait for the player to finish reading its contents, then to skip copyright warnings and/or the 'play movie' menu screen, press STOP, then PLAY, or simply press PLAY button where 'play movie' (or whatever function) is highlighted in the menu. These buttons should be on the front of the main unit. Doing this should encourage the player to detect the appropriate title (the movie) and play it (basic playback operation may not be possible with some DVD releases due to the numerous interactive menus and title pages, such as film trailers).

If basic manual operation is not completely possible with some DVD titles, consider a universal remote for your player if you have either lost your original, or the player was purchased/received without one. Such remotes are relatively inexpensive to purchase, and are available just about everywhere.

Try pushing the reset button on the inside of the battery compartment of the remote unit then push the reset button on the back of the main unit (you'll need a paperclip or tooth pick to push the buttons). If that fails I'd start from scratch by removing the batteries from both the remote unit and the main unit then replace the batteries to the remote unit first and push reset, then replace the batteries to the main unit and if necessary push the reset button on the main unit too. Hope this helps.

I have Sony Grand Wega KDF-55E2000. While my 3 year grandchild was visiting she was playing with remote and now I have System Status and Path A Status screen displayed that I can't remove. Please help!!!!


The easiest way is by resetting the tv itself back to the factory setting.Just unplug,replug the tv back like about an hour later.This should remove itself.

Check that the batteries are inserted properly and that they are in the right way, if either of the batteries is not in the position its ment to be, it won't work.

you would need a Special IR camera to see any light from the remote so that seems like a silly solution to me.

The remote is not working if you can't turn the device off or change channel. You might want to try another remote to confirm that your device actually receives the signal and works, if it does work with another remote, the remote you have is broken.

AKAI PDP4273M1 - Unit powers up then shuts down.


I just repaired one for the same trouble. The input to the main processor from the standy switch had shorted to groung. This was probably caused by static inserted when pushing the power button. The processor is not a replaceable part. The part number for the main board is E3761-058010-2. It costs between $140 and $150. I found it on-line at Shopjimmy.com.
Good Luck!

Any button pushed on my remote control causes ''SET 1'' on display.


Hi, All you need to do is point the remote at your DVD player and hold both the number "1" and "enter" keys down for about 10 seconds. Evidently that re-sets the remote. It worked for me so good luck.

How to play CD on Aiwa NSX-3500 (part of CX-N3500U) w/o remote control?


I thought that I had the same problem. I then discovered that when I put 3 CD's in it started up on it's own. If you push the demo button you can see how it's supposed to light up the number of tracks in a square on the right of the display. It wasn't doing that until I put in all 3. Then it started up and I was able to use the disc 1, 2 & 3 buttons to change from 1 CD to the next and I used the Up and Down buttons to change songs and the play button above the tape deck is multi-functional. Hope this helps.

No Disk


When I try to play a DVD, operation seems normal, the unit makes a slight noise like the disk is rotating and "Loading" is displayed. Then after about 30 seconds the message "No Disk" is displayed. Then just the Polaroid screen is displayed. I have lost the remote control but surely the unit will play using the front panel buttons. One thing, only the remote is named as having a Setup Button in the manual but the unit has no such button.
