Panasonic dmr-e55eb-s


Hello Brian. Its not a Zener, it appears to be some type of polarised VDR or similar device. I have just literally one hour ago repaired an E55. I was about to replace the STRG6353 and had taken the old one out. I thought it a good idea to check a few components before going ahead.. I did a diode check across td3 and it showed short circuit in both directions. So I disconnected both ends and then it showed open in both directions.. Read a bit more on various forums and decided it was ok to fit the new STRG. I made a much larger heat sink for it. The machine immediately came back to lift.
If you want a bit of moral support e-mail me at johnatjbrewerdotfsnetdotcodotuk. Happy new year..

DVD stuck on Panasonic DMR ES10 in eternal cycle of "self check"/"please wait"


My DMR ES10 was eternally in a "self check"/"please wait" cycle. Couldn't even turn it off normally. By pressing the "Power off" for 10 seconds it will turn off forcefully. Now, after it says "BYE" press the "CH UP" (on the recorder, NOT on the remote))+"STOP" (with the recorder turned off) for another 10 seconds. This will force the opening and we now can take the DVD off. Turn the DVD recorder ON and, if the problem is on the laser, because of dirt, etc it will work and we can now run a DVD cleaner. In this case, the machine was stuck just because the first thing it does is check the DVD inside, and because it can't and just keep trying, it will never do anything else, until we take the DVD off with it turned off.

DMR-E95H doing self check for up to an hour


Your problem may be Panasonic's common capacitor failures. Open case and look for capacitors with bowed out top and yellow substance. Replace both with higher rated capacitors from Radio Shack. Will need some soldering skills. Look on this site for "solder c1260 c1261"

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.

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.

A self-check for these models can sometimes last for 3-7min's (sometimes longer) depending on how much recorded data is on your hard drive. Plus it checks all unrecorded space on your hard drive as well. Don't forget that it must check 200Gig. If it self checks for longer than 20-30mins turn off at the wall and let cool down. Try again in an hour or so and it should rectify itself. If it continues to self-check for longer than 20-30mins refer your machine to an authorized technition

Trouble with my Panasonic DVD recorder DMR-E55EB


Hi Dengle

The heat is caused by IC001 which is a regulator that is mounted on a completely inadequate heatsink on the power board. This component gets very hot during normal operation.

The regulator will usually last a couple of years, depending on how often the machine is used and then start playing up. The symptoms are intermittent operation, continuous self checking and rebooting, not being able to read discs and so on.

Eventually the component can short-circuit, burn out and take other components with it. The on-board fan is thermostatically controlled. It does not operate all the time, only when the unit gets hot enough. By using an external fan, you are keeping the unit cool enough for its own fan never to cut in. The additional cooling is probably squeezing a bit more life out of the regulator and is stopping its own fan from operating.

I have repaired lots of these and have never found a faulty fan, or fan switching fault. There's always a first time of course.

It is more likely that the regulator IC001 is faulty and if you are technically skilled, I would suggest you seriously consider replacing it. Use some heatsink compound and an extra heatsink, and it will probably do the trick. The regulator is an STRG6353. You can get these easily online from a number of outlets. Don't attempt a repair if you are unsure of what you are doing. Regards..
