Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder

Panasonic DMR E55 DVD Recorder

My Panasonic DMR E55 has suddenly stopped working and is displaying, in red, the word 'EXT link'. Nothing, including pulling out the plug and starting again, has any effect whatsoever. The machine just sits there. I have taken advice locally and been told that the machine is simply broken. No explanation. .Just the advice, "Buy another one". Is this true? Is there nothing to be done? To date, the machine has worked faultlessly.

    Many many thanks!

    I tried posting another comment which didn't get through. So, I'll try again. I'm new at this game. When I looked for help by phoning two local places, a general repair shop and a specialist Panasonic Centre, one told me that the machine probably needed a new board. The other commented that '"all machines have a shelf life". I don't know what an EXT Link is for (although I can imagine). I have never needed it or even noticed it. However, the moral is, "don't let your cat sleep on top of the remote". Many, many thanks. I am truly impressed.

    All the best

    Thanks for the information. My experience only goes to illustrate how many of the many functions of these devices we totally ignore.

    Appreciated the feedback.

Hi James,

When in EXT link mode the recorder is looking for a signal from the TV to start recording off the TV's timers system.

There is a EXT Link button on the remote control and pressing that will take the machine back to normal mode. The button is near the bottom of the remote.

Hope this helps

Andy

How do i finalize a disc


..issues with the DMR-E55 recorder:

http://club.cdfreaks.com/f106/problem-recording-panasonic-dmr-e55-130046/

..here is your manual:

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/DVD-Recorders/model.DMR-E55K

...and on page 33 of that manual they discuss how to do the finalizations.

From my experiences on a friend's DVD recorder,
you need to go 'step by step' and in exact order or the processor
in the machine may not see the correct labeling codes on your disk
at the time you finalize. The "problem issues" referenced in the first
link should help you keep from stumbling over an 'error prone' situation
and may/may-not apply, but IF it does please contact your original sales location with that information.

Panasonic dmr-e55 won't work, just says "hold" on display


HOLD or X HOLD? If the latter - which is most likely - then the Child Lock has been activated! Press and hold ENTER and RETURN simultaneously until HOLD disappears!

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.

PANASONIC DMR-E55 DVD RECORDER


Try first unplugging unit from main, and holding the cancel button.

If that does not work try the following:
Hold at the same time the stop button on the main unit and key >10 on the remote control at the same time for about 5 seconds, until you get the word "initialised" on display. This will reset the unit to factory settings.

Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder Problem


I have been told that panasonic now have a faster speed disc on sale to suit the newer dvd recorders that dmr-e55 cannot record on as they are too fast. You have to buy the slower speed ram discs to suit the dmr-e55.
