Panasonic DMR-ES46V shows F60 Error

Machine will not do anything. As soon as you press the power button the display reads F60 and stays there until you unplug it. When I plug it back in it goes through the startup process then shows the time. once you press the power button all you get is F60.

    I have a DMR-ES40V with the same sort of issue. I reset it (power button held for 20 seconds) a number of times, unplug, push eject, etc. Sometimes it comes back for a day and then stops again after playing a DVD. I throws error codes F03, F60 and U99 randomly but only during startup. If it starts working it stays working through a playing session but won't start again generally after that.

    I have a DMR-EZ475V that does the same thing, F60, nothing happens

  • hardlyworkin Sep 11, 2008

    To the person who offered the solution -
    Are the ribbon cables easily removed from the video processor board; i.e., pull out? I purchased a second DMR-EZ475V on E-Bay for parts. Hopefully, the board swap is fairly simple.

    I have the same problem with my unit. It started when the player would be turned off then suddenly it would turn on and off by itself then it went to the F60 code and will not work at all now. I took it to a local Panasonic rep come to find out it something wrong with one of the main boards in the unit and Panasonic no longer makes the replacement parts for it and it is unavailable. The only thing he could do is try to find one from another repair place. If he can't find one it is deamed unrepairable by Panasonic. This is the second Panasonic DVD player/recorder that I have owed and both have done the same thing. I will never, ever buy a Panasonic product again and will advise everyone to do the same. The are junk.

    Make me # 5 with the same F60 problem, take power off then back on & it runs through the 0000000 patern 2-3 times, then sets F60. Guess I will be at Best Buy tomorrow but not for a Panasonic. This machine has not been overused, we hardly ever use it.

    Turned the power off for 10 mins. then plugged it back in pressing the power button, it cleared the F-60 error code.

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.

I called a local repair shop and they informed me that the F60, F61 etc codes indicated to check for a bad power supply first, and then the audio board after that.

F60 is a general error code usually related to a failure on the video processing board. If you have access to spare/replacement parts, this is an easy error to correct by simply replacing the board. You can recognize this board as the small board with the onboard HDMI port in the DMR-EZ47V model, and has the mini cables connecting to it. It floats above the rest of the boards in the middle back of the machine.

Panasonic dmr-es40v

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.

Code F60 on DMR-Ez47V

Unfortunately, the F60 error means that the video processing board (digital PCB board with the HDMI port on it) has a failure. Often this happens when the capacitors on the board fail. Replacing the board or the failed components on the board is usually necessary. Some of the components may be available here: .

First you can try to reset the unit. Unplug it. Then plug it in after a few minutes. Then when you see the string of 0's, press and hold the power button. Then try to power up the unit normally. Alternatively, press and hold Stop and Hold while you power on the DMR-EZ47V.

I hope this helps. Unfortunately, I am not sure which part number applies to the part you need from the PC Boards available from the site above.

Panasonic dmr-es46v player recorder error code u61. what do i due


That error means: 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.

I suggest you unplug all the cords o the unit and after 2hrs replug and see if the error is gone.

Let me know the result.

Thank you for using fixya.
