    i too have the same problem. please help. it is very frustrating. sometimes it will work if i turn it on and let it run for hours. it is almost like it has to warm up or something. but it never did this when i first got it. it seems as thought it just came out of no where.

I got a new machine, when I transfer from VHS to DVD-R it records, but will only play on the machine I recorded on, it doesn't load on other DVD players, why is that?


You need to FINALIZE the DVD-R you recorded in that unit for it to be playable on other DVD players. This function should be part of the on-screen menu for your unit. (in Panasonic DVD recorders, it's under DVD MANAGEMENT in the FUNCTIONS menu).

If the disc you recorded is already loaded, but stopped, press SETUP on your remote - an on screen menu should appear.

Using the UP/DOWN arrow keys, select DVD MENU and press ENTER. Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys again to select FINALIZE and press ENTER.

A message box will popup 'Finalize disc?' use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select YES then press ENTER. Finalizing should start and may take a while to complete.

Once complete, the disc is now playable on other DVD players. (from page 32 of the owners manual with the heading 'PLAYING THE DISCS IN OTHER DVD PLAYERS')

My sony dvd player will not allow the tray to eject. when the eject button is presses "tray locked" appears on the screen


Follow this procedure to lock and unlock the disc tray.
IMPORTANT: This procedure will only work while a disc is inserted in the player and when the disc is playing.
While a disc is playing in the Blu-ray Disc player, press the SYSTEM MENU button on the remote control.
After the System Menu screen appears, slowly press 0 0 0 0 7 6 6 9 using the number pad on the remote control. NOTES:
If the procedure has been performed correctly, the disc will stop playing and the player will go in the Resume mode. Each time this procedure is performed the disc tray will either lock or unlock.

DVD player will not read any discs.


> I tried recording a VHS to a DVD according to the instructions in the manual.
There can hardly be instructions in the manual to do this since that model is not a DV Recorder, but if it isn't reading any DVD then you have a warranty problem assuming your unit is still within the warranty period.
That unit is capable of recording DVD content to VHS tape but not the opposite.

Panasonic DMR E20 Produces a line of distortion along the bottom


Sounds like you see head switching from the tape. Most TV are over scanned enough to hide it.

Panasonic dvd recorder model dmr-e55eb/ebl. played dvd,no problem - ejected dvd - green/blue colouring appeared on TV which disappeared when dvd recorder switched off. since then unable to play dvds. ...


This is a problem with either the logic or the power supply. Without seeing the machine and taking measurements inside, I can't state for sure the exact problem. These are decent machines. I would suggest that you bring it to an authorized Panasonic service center for a repair estimate. Post the results here and we'll suggest the next steps.

Plays no DVD's of any kind or format


The disc may not be spinning when inserted into the player.

when you insert a disc, something holds it from the top and bottom and starts to spin it. If the upper and/or lower grips can no longer grip the disc strongly, the disc will not rotate or rotate very slowly or not in sync with the laser reading it.

to test this, put some double sided tape on the outer circumference of the middle hole of the dvd, don't go too close to the area where the data area on the dvd begins. do the bottom first.

if this works then you have to find a clever way of placing something on the grips so they can hold the discs stronger.

For my dvd player, i took it apart, cut a rubber sheet into a ring shape and glued it to the lower grip. Haven't had any problems so far.

Blue Screen


Could be dirty heads if you have a dry head cleaner tape try it (Maxell and RCA make ok tapes to try for ~:30-1min) ALSO:
There is a delay in the time you adjust the tracking and
the results being visable on the screen on this unit,
I suspect the tracking is adjusted off center. It takes some getting used to the way this deck's tracking adjustment works as the VHS video is upconverted to be captured onto the dvd and that is what you see, the upconverted video, fed out to your TV, analog or digital, this unit upconverts everthing to digital even analog channels, there needs to be a noise/blue screen off feature in the menu like my old hitachi VHS deck and my JVC ~$60 deck has now. On analog TV or old tapes it comes in handy for adjusting the tracking/antenna.
