Panasonic dvd recorder DMR-ex85 wont read any DVD disc Drive clicking and sounds like its not loading

Posted by on

  • shedmonkey Nov 14, 2008

    I have the same problem, the DMR-EX85 I have is now coming up for 2 years old. Inserting pre-recorded discs, blank DVD RAM or DVD+R gets the same result, about 30 seconds of clunking sounds followed by the noread message. Disappointing!

    Yes - I have the same problem too on a DMR EX85. Happened after I formatted a DVD+RW disc.



    Other posts I have seen elsewhere show that the resolution is to replace both the RAM drive and Optical Board with genuine Panny parts. Need to find a repairer and find out the cost to see if it is worth it.



    Disappointing - 2.5 years old, out of warranty and was giving intermittent U80 error codes. Won't be buying any more Panny AV equipment.

How can I "PAUSE" while Copying from HDD to DVD on my Panasonic DMR-EX85 recorder?


Hi, Assuming the unit behaves much like a VCR-VCR dubbing setup you may be able to pause the DVD recordig on the fly simply by making sure the function is set to DVD and pressing PAUSE to start/stop recording
Hope this helps
