Our coby portable DVD player pauses automatically at every couple sceens

It sounds if maybe there is a problem with the laser inside of the dvd player. It is nothing that can be fixed unless under warranty by the manufacturer.

The self check function is not working - u61 keeps appearing on the display screen when self check function is trying to work.

Self-check function is normally carried out from the power supply across the motherboard, and so on, to determine the overall 'condition' of all the relative circuitry in the unit (much like a PC does when booting up and loading the system). However, when it is interrupted by an error, such as U61, you can bet a connected device to the motherboard is the prime suspect. In this model, it would be somewhere in the DVD drive area (or the drive itself). If this drive is making clunking grinding noises just before the error code appears, then the drive is defective, and should be replaced, not repaired.

In some cases, it can also be the digital controller sub-panel (located on a platform under the DVD drive in this model and other models in this series; this little board contains the CPU and RAM chips, plus other parts, including many which are surface-mounted on the copper side - the DVD drive is connected to it via ribbon cables - then this board is connected via a couple more connectors/plugs to the motherboard, hence the terms 'sub-panel' or 'control module'). Either way, unless you are aware of the likely cost(s) involved (being a new DVD-RAM drive if required as well as a replacement digital controller PCB (as mentioned above)), it could prove expensive and/or uneconomical to repair.

I would not discount the power supply in this situation either; eliminate all likely possible avenues of issue to be sure, starting with electrolytic capacitors, and going from there.

I happen to possess 2 of these combo units, and neither performs a self-check on startup, although I have had the 'NoREAD' error once or twice.

Nevertheless, if you have any doubts you can always take your combo to an authorised Panasonic service centre, hopefully they can assess the problems, provide you a reasonable (if not free) quote on the likely 'fix-up' costs involved, which you can then make a decision afterwards as to whether or not it is worth restoring to former glory. Up to you.

No picture on the sceen but when i toutch the small button who closes the screen when we fold the dvd player it appears and diappeaers as fast

This sounds like a stuck lid switch, much like what you find on a laptop. Look for a little button close to the hinges and tap it to see if its stuck. This player just isn't old enough to have a dead backlight yet.

Recorder self-check... after inserting a disc.

Inserting a disk OTHER than Panasonic will cause a system crash. I'm betting Panasonic has code that causes this so you don't use cheaper generic DVDs. I now have to mail order the Panasonic DVDs (since nobody carries them) and have never had a crash since!

Stays in self check mode

If self check keeps going after 1 minute unplug machine and open top cover remove 4 screws that hold the recorder top cover remove disk reinsert screws and plug in see what happens.

Most of the time a small scratch or fingerprint on recorded disk cause these units to lock up

Stuck in self check mode

Manually pull down the front shield, then somewhat forcefully pull down the inner shield and maybe two little white pins so the tray is exposed with nothing blocking it. Have someone plug the machine in while you are holding everything out of the way and the tray should start to open. Pull your fingers out quickly so you don't block the tray from sliding out.

Unit wont stay powered up

Check for overheating. Place the unit in a large plastic bag and place it in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Don't allow condensation to appear on the unit before powering it up, the heat will evaporate any potential condensation. Put moisture absorber or rice in a paper bag in the plastic bag for safety to absorb any moisture. Then power up. If still inoperative check for DC or AC voltage on speaker connectors. If one side is different, or if DC appears on the outputs, audio output may be shorted. See if plugging in headphones stops the problem, some units disable the audio outputs with headphones plugged in.
