This answer was rated:

We have a two year old Panasonic DMR HW 220. The remote stopped working recently, so I replaced it, but the new one didn't work either. I have switched the recorder off and on and unplugged and reattached it to the Panasonic TV. I assume that the problem is with the recorder. How can I diagnose and possibly fix it? It seems too new to have to replace it.

Although I must now assume that the old one is still fine.

O.k then it is possible that your player`s remote code has changed so you need to try and match the new (or old) remote to it .

There are 6 possible code here , number 1 to 6

On the remote press and hold OK and number 1 for 5 + secs and try it .

Repeat this up to number 6 if needed

Success with number 4. The programme guide now works, and is currently updating.
