Tip & How-To about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

Force Eject

If a disc gets stuck in the recorder, there a few steps to try before the problem becomes service-related:

1. Power the unit off (so it shows the clock), then simply press the Open/Close button. The unit should power on and attempt to eject the disc.
2. If the above doesn't work - power it off again, then press and hold the STOP and CH UP button on the recorder itself together and hold them down until the unit powers up. This is called a force eject. If this doesn't work (usually if it's not going to work the recorder will simply come on momentarily then loop back into "bye" and go back to the clock), there is one last method to try.
3. Unplug the unit for 30 seconds. Press and hold the same buttons as above as you plug it in. After it performs the self-check "ooooo" across the screen it should do the force eject. If not, the unit requires service to be repaired and possibly the drive replaced.

disc stuck in wii console


Your Wii will require Warranty service from Ninteno. However, if you send your unit chances are they won't return the disc.

How to open your wii – http://wiki-scene.com/Wii_disassembly
Once you get to – 'Remove 4 DVD drive screws' Dont do that, just take the 5 screw off the top of the Drive, and the drive will split into 2 and you can easily remove your disc. Reassemble and contact Nintendo for Warranty service.

Hey scott10news,

According to your owners manual(http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES30V.PDF) Its showing SLF Check means there has been a power interruption and the system is attempting "restoring" itself.

Unfortunately, I had somewhat of a similar problem with my Panasonic DVDR. Every time i tried to record or finalize a disc it would just display recover and then shut off. The reason I say unfortunately is I had to send it out for service to be repaired, there appears to have been a problem where the unit was had become corrupted.

It might be necessary to bring the unit in for a diagnostic and/or estimate for repairs.

Wish I had better news.

won't record


I've just spoken to a friend who also has one of these older Philips recorders & he has the same problem.

As per my previous post, he fixed his problem by locating old stocks of blanks. New audio discs seem to have been manufactured & optimised for fast writing speeds (up to 32x speed) & this is causing the problem (you can't write at x1 or x2 speed to these new speedy discs).

Trying a few different brands of discs to try out is a whole lot cheaper than a repair. I suggest when you find a brand that works, you stock up on these discs as it seems they will become ever rarer.

Good luck!

You can try a factory reset (reboot).Here are the steps..

The following will set your recorder to the Factory defaults.
(Will not format HD on DMRE80).

With power off (stand-by mode/CLOCK DISPLAY SHOWING):

1)Press and hold [skip reverse] [Time Slip] [Eject] buttons for about 10 sec
2)Display will show 'L1 TEST'
3)Now power off DURING TEST
4)Clock should be fashing 12:00

Use for

For the DMRE75V press both [dub] buttons and [eject].

Hope this helps.

RECORD DROP OUT


Just bought this CDR 570 and not use yet.

Reading the instruction manual - yes, life experience has taught me some really useful stuff! -

Under 'Discs for recording' on page 7 it says at end of section

IMPORTANT:
To ensure proper working of the set we recommend the use of PHILIPS audio CDR and audio CDRW discs only'
Roughly translated I read this to me - 'don't blame us if the set don't work using other (non-compatible) discs' !!
