I just fixed my unit. Remove the hard drive cage and look at the circuit board underneath. Look carefully at the capacitors - if you see any brown residue on top of the capacitors or they appear to be bulging they've failed. On my unit all four 680 uF caps were bad. I bought replacement parts from www.mcm.com (make sure you get the 16V, low ESR variety). Replacing all four of these bulging caps brought my unit back to life.

Removing the board to swap these out isn't difficult - just take your time and make sure you get all the connectors unplugged. Re-connect electrically before re-testing - these "chopper" type power supplies can self destruct of not tied to a load of some sort.

TRY TO CHECK ALL THE POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS THAT MAY CAUSE THIS PROBLEM. IF YOU ALREADY CHECK THE PSUPPLY AND THE FUSES, AND ALSO CHECK THE OUTLET IF IT HAS A POWER AND ALSO THE POWER CORD.

SECOND IS TRY TO CHECK THE PSUPPLY TRANSFORMER AND RESISTOR. THIS CAN BE POSSIBLE IF YOUR UNIT NEVER GENERATE A POWER INTO THE MAIN BOARD.

These units use a switch mode power supply. These are not the easiest to repair, but tend to have some fairly common faults. The most common are the following 2:

1) The main transistor attached to the heatsink is shorted. This usually causes the main fuse to blow, so I don;t think that this is your problem.

2) These power supplioes require oscillation and on the primary side of the supply, you should see 2 capacitors with a voltage rating in the 200V range. One will be 80-200Ufd and the other will be in the 22ufd range. Try changing the 22ufd cap. This is the "kicker" that starts the oscillation. This is a common failure part.

If neither of the above resolve the problem, please update this and I'll try to give you a few more options.

You got only two options

either no supply from plug point.-- confirm it by plugging the unit in another point.

else damaged power board- confirm it by opening the unit from back side. power board can be found the the place where the power cord enters

    dont you see any components of the power board damaged?? please take a meter and check if any of the components are dead in the power board

  • dewan nafees ahmed Sep 25, 2008

    what do you mean by "it is very live and flowin with juice""???

  • dewan nafees ahmed Sep 25, 2008

    if its not power cord it must be some component in the power board which is dead and not allowing power to enter in.
    few cases they are visible easily by burns or bulges.

    few cases they just die with out leaving any clues.

    on those case you can only get them out by checking each and every component.

Panasonic dmr-es40v


Ron, F60 is a general error code usually related to a failure on the video processing board. You could fix this by just replacing that board. Try to place it in standby mode first by unplugging it, wait a couple of minutes and then plug it back in. When the 000000's starts, hold down the power button for 15-20seconds. The unit should then be in standby mode. From this mode try to start it normally using the power button and see if it cleared the error. You could also try a complete reset by powering the unit off and press and hold the "Stop" and "Channel Up" buttons at the same time for a few seconds while powering the unit up. Hope this helps, good luck.

Panasonic DMR-E85Hp dvd won't turn on now.


The power supply board on the DMR-E85H has problems. The earlier boards suffered from leaking capacitors and the later boards from voltage regulator problems. If your machine is now dead, the fuse on the power supply board has also blown.Go to the following links for details and photos on how to fix:Replacing capacitors:http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_displayReplacing the voltage regulator:http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0Hope this helps. My machine had the later ps board and the voltage regulator replacement worked perfectly.

U61


According to the owners manual the U61 error is listed below. (Page 47)

There was a power failure or the AC plug was disconnected while the unit was on. The unit is carrying out its recovery process. This process restores the unit to normal operation. The unit is not broken. Wait until the message disappears.

You can download the owners manual here.
http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES25-MULTI.PDF
I would recommend trying to unplug the unit overnight and then plug it in and see if this helps. Not sure what you might have tried, but this may help.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Is the Remote Control sensor in direct fluorescent lamp light or other strong
sources of light?
Press unit POWER button down over 7 seconds. The POWER indicator goes
out. If the Power was On, the screen will also disappear. After 5 seconds, turn
Power On and operate unit normally. If the steps above do not restore normal
operation, disconnect then reconnect the AC plug and turn the power On.

If that does not work, Panasonic offers free tech support 6 days a week 1-800-211-7262 (pana).

Remote


When I have the same issue with my dmr-ez37v I recover by unplugging the unit for about 15 seconds, then plugging it back in. It seems the unit get "hung" about once a month and requires a hard power reset.

Panasonic DMR-E50 no power


Check the two pin power plug on the back panel.
These units have a common problem on the power board where a regulator overheats and finally blows. Sometimes even before it blows it will take out an internal fuse. If the power board is faulty the repair is easy for an engineer and not too expensive.
