I have a (quite old!) Panasonic video player/recorder - NV-40

This answer was rated:

I have a (quite old!) Panasonic video player/recorder - NV-40 - which is still in very good condition, and which I would like to use again. Could you please tell me if there was a remote control for the machine, and if so, where you think I might be able to obtain one? I would also like to find (or download if possible) a User Guide for the machine.
Thank you.

Thank you, Richard. And especially for your promptness. I went to the web-site for the remote control, but saw that the one shown was for the NV-G40, not the J40 which I have. Are they compatible, or is it even the same remote for both?

The 'Manual' turned out to be a 68-page Service Manual!, rather than the simple User Guide which I would like. Can you advise, please?

You need to use this remote for the J40

For a User Manual, this was never put online sorry (this was all before the days of electronic manuals) and as you see, Panasonic actually scanned in the service manual, but the user manual is not available sorry Raymond.
