Panasonic DMR-BWT740 Function Menu issues


Novice Member
The front panel on my Panasonic Blu-Ray DMR-BWT740 HDD recorder just started flashing a square symbol and now my remote no longer works with the recorder. I can access the recorder using another Panasonic remote, but when I try to use the Function or Direct Navigator buttons, these features come up for about 2 seconds and then disappear. Does anyone in the community know what the flashing square means and what I need to do to get the unit functioning again?

I suspect you've accidentally set it to a different remote code, read page 85 and 93 of your user manual on how to change it back.

Thanks JayCee. Yeah, tried both of those. I know about the remote code issue, but that usually displays a particular code message if the remote has the wrong setting. I've never seen anything like this flashing square thing - there's no code or anything similar that matches the manual troubleshooting guide.
