DMR-ES40V Problems

I've had this unit for about 7 months and was happy with it untill a short time ago. The first problem I encountered was the dvd wouldn't read any blank media (regardless of brand or quality).

Since Panasonic's website is so easy to navigate and firmware locations so easy to find (NOT!), I contacted the local service center. He emailed me the latest firmware for the unit and I installed it.

Since installing, the original problem reading discs is still there and now there is a new one. The firmware changed the remote control code back to RC1. So now my remote does nothing. Any help with either of these problems would be appreciated.

I am having the same problem with the remote control reset to RC1. Have you ever gotten an answer?

Re: DMR-ES40V Problems

Yep... fixed it by buying a DMR-ES15!

The only thing in the manual is how to change the code from a working remote.

No one in here or the "authorized" service techs (yeah right) EVER came up with an answer for me.

My suggestion.... go buy another panasonic unit that has a comparable remote. Take it home and put batteries in the remote and find the instructions in the book. Reset your old unit and then return the new unit to the store for a refund.

Re: DMR-ES40V Problems

I had this same problem, I emailed Panasonic customer support and this is what they told me to do:

"To fix the problem that your having with the remote press the number 1 & enter on the remote at the same time for 7 seconds."

It worked for me, hope it will help you as well...
