Panasonic dmr-ez47veb - stuck in U61 mode


Standard Member
My Panasonic is about three and a half years old and apart from having the DVD drive replaced about a year ago it works brilliantly.

A couple of days ago I tried recording a programme from VHS to DVD and had an error message saying the disc was dirty or scratched. I changed the disc and then the unit went into recovery mode U61. After a while the disc tray opens and a message says to press OK and the unit will go to standby. Press power to restart. When I do this the tray opens and the unit goes to standby with the tray still open.

I have done this several times now and each time I get the error message and the tray open with the unit on standby. I have read all the way through the manual as the troubleshooting section is quite good. I have tried resetting it, but get no response and now I cannot use the VHS either as it is permanently stuck in DVD mode.

Help please!:lease:
