Customer Question

i have a panasonic DMR XW450 dvd recorder/player
new batteries in the remote....i cant switch the unit on using the remote ... and none of the commands on the remote seem to talk to the unit.....
the unit displays HDD in small letters followed by DV in larger letters...
the unit has been working for years using the remote but i think someone has pressed something to dis-enable.
