Seems to have no power, no lights on front lit, if listened to closely one may hear a "click click click" sound.
Solution: Replace C232 on power supply board.
Additional technical info:
In this design, the switching power supply feedback is from the 5 volt standby rail only, which is odd. The problem is caused when C232, the first filter capacitor in this rail and the sampling point for the feedback circuit, opens. The clicking sound is transformer rattle as the power supply restarts repeatedly.

These are error codes generated by the main microprocessor which are
tripped by corruption, preventing it's operation and which requires the
processor to be reset.
The codes do not actually mean anything at all because the corruption error potentially has a great many possible causes.
It does not point to any specific fault as such.
U81 error literally means 'Microprocessor Communication Error on the Universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter' but I dare say if Panasonic told you that , you would be no further forward.
Corruption can arise for many different reasons .. and is not surprising in a box that has an aerial feeding endless streams of complex data into it, has a mains connection with interference on it, has two internal data storage and retrieval systems, either of which can be problematic... and sits permanently bathed in electrical and radio frequency fields of varying intensity.
Causes can be difficult to identify and may be internal or external.
Such problems may be exacerbated during the transitional phase of the DSO [ Digital Switch Over ]
In practice, all one can do is follow good practices:
Don't stack gear - or give it plenty ventilation if you do.
Ensure good clean mains supplies.
Ensure a properly installed aerial system with sound connectors and adequate screening.... etc.

SOURCE: SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207
I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
