Question about Panasonic DMR-EX75EB-S DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

HDD ERR is quite a serious error, as it means there is a hardware problem with the internal disk drive. You could try switching off the unit and disconnecting the mains cable overnight, and trying again, but really this will need to be a call to an engineer.
If your unit is still in warranty call them now to arrange a fix. To find your local warranty centre, go to your regional Panasonic website, and look under Customer Support

I figured out, unlike all the other posts, you don't have an enter button. But Instead, you would hit the 2 and OK button at the same time for a few seconds. I had the RC1 message and I did the 1 with OK and it worked. so if you have RC2, you should hit the 2 and OK. Should work!!

From User guide:
U61 • 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.
If fail unplug and hold power button for a minute or two and turn it on and repeat.

Hopefully you will have figured this out by now but you have accidentally turned on the external link function (used to automatically record from a sky box or similar) - simply press the ext-l button on the remote (second row from the bottom of the remote, 3rd button from left) to turn it off again and everything will work normally once more.

SOURCE: My DMR EX75EB it fails
This is one of several error codes generated by the main microprocessor IC which are
tripped by corruption, preventing proper operation and which may require the
processor to be reset (where practical) or replaced.
The U81 and U80 codes don't mean anything in particular because the corruption error could be caused by a number of different reasons. It does not point to any specific one fault. This is where the confusion sets in as to the origin of the 'error code' in any device.
U81 means (in technical terms) 'microprocessor communication malfunction' on the universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter' or 'microprocessor feedback information error'.
This is not something the user should undertake to repair themselves; it should really go to an authorised Panasonic repair centre. The cost depends on the parts used and the labour, however, it is not unfixable. You can always get a quote on this and a second opinion, then decide for yourself if it is economical or not.
I posted this 'advice' for this model previously. The DMR-EX75 and DMR-EX85 are prone to U81 - which is a common error code.
