Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Recording problem - DMR-E55

I start recording as normal but when I press stop the machine switches itself off immediately and re-starts with self check. On disc the programme hasn't recorded. I have tried with 2 different Panasonic rewritable discs but experience the same problem. Can you help?

Panasonic DMR-E55 gives frequently "SELF CHECK". Sometimes it working ok but when i try to erase some recordings he goes to SELF CHECK. The problem came very slowly.Is this a problem with the power...


in short "yes". the switching regulator IC (component found on heatsink "cooks" because the heatsink is not big enough).
start with checking power supply capacitors for bulging tops or electronic leakage (preferably using ESR meter) & fitting bigger heatsink. If problem persists then replace switching regulator IC

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.

Self check


Please be a bit more specific if you can. In what way is it repeating itself? And once it comes on does it stay on? It could be a component faulty on the power supply side.

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

DVD Recorder keps re-starting self test & will also not finalize discs.


This seems to be a common problem with the E55 and E85 models, could be one of two things, either the RAM Drive or the Power control ic (STRG6353 primary side of PSU), i would suspect its the latter. You'll need an engineer to replace this component.
