Question about Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD Recorder

Open Question

Panasonic DMR-E80H I have owned a Panasonic DMR E80H DVD Recorder/Player. I have owned it for approximately 5 years and I haven't had a problem with it until recently. I am not able to record anything because the television program will not play through the recorder and to the television. My digital cable box is hooked directly into the television through an HDMI cable and the coax from cable box goes through the E80H. In order for the DVD player to play or record I have to change the video to another video channel. It has worked fine for the last several years until recently. Nothing has changed with the hook up of the television or cable box. Please help. Thank you, Barry Drescher

DMR-E80H Hard drive problem seems to pretty common. My drive started making the famaous kerchunk noise tonight. After disassembly I see the drive is a ATA133 Maxtor drive....are you sure that you replaced it with the correct drive? I may contact Maxtor and try to get an RMA since the drive is only 3yrs old. Good Luck

SOURCE: YOUR TV DOES NOT ALLOW DISPLAY OF THIS PROGRAM THROUGH THE DVI IN

I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

SOURCE: My DMR-E80H will no longer record onto blank DVDs

One solution is to clean the laser lens. Try using one of those lens cleaning CDs.

Also, sometimes the DVD may slip on the spindle, which may cause reading errors. Spindle cleaning usually involves taking the machine apart.

SOURCE: How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer

I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD recorder no longer reads DVD-R or DVD Ram it will play commercial DVDs. I've cleaned the lens, updated the Firmware and still no help.


The one thing that will alway fail on these as well as any laser read piece of equipment is the laser reader. I would check into that to start and don't look into the laser. The parts are available and it is a matter of your experience with electronics as to how easy this will be for you to replace.

My DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks


I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)

DVD Ram recorder


Mine, a Panasonic DMR-E80H, didn't like some of the Ram disk either. Either I was trying to erase it or just read it and it would shut it self off and go into recover mode.
So, I pulled the plug overnight. Then, first thing after I plugged it back in was to eject the disk before it tried to read it. Once the disk was out. It stopped going into recover mode.
Good Luck.

Panasonic DMR-E80H Change Disc Error


If you haven't done so, try downloading the firmware update from their support site. Burn the update file to a cd-rom.

I have had numerous times where my unit recovered and I had to format the hard drive(losing all of my shows), but since I did the update this has not happened to me again.

Remote control not working


Look into your manual that came with your dvd recorder for DMR-E80H, Page 46, Changing the Remote Control Code. My child played with a remote control as well and reconfigured it as well. In the manual, you have explanation how to configure your remote control again to work.
