Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

No read on some disks and not on others

I've been recording (for example) Dancing with the Stars for 3 weeks now. When I try to record the next show I now get a no read. If I put in a new DVD it works fine. The problem usually comes after I recorded a few shows already. I had this problem with many DVD-R disks that I've recorded in the past with multiple shows, that now say no read. I would like to know if there is any way to get the recorder to read the disk so I can at least finalize the disk and recover the shows that were recorded.

Thanks for any help or comments you can provide.

Sincerely, Roger

    I will try to clean the lens as you suggested and see what happens. If this doesn't help what is the next thing I can do?

You need to clean the Lens of your Recorder. Open it with the required tool and go for it.

Otherwise call a repair personnel.

    Also check out if you are using some poor quality of CD/DVDs use a good quality one. And go for try again. Otherwise follow the Solution 1 given by me.

    I am sure it will fix the issue, otherwise the worst can be with your Recorder is worn out lens & Head of the reader.

    So replacing lens and Head of the reader will definetly do the trick.

    Thanks again!

My Sony RDR-GX300 DVD Recorder is suddenly only recording the 1st 15 seconds from the DVR. The entire show is on the DVR. I have tried discs that I've used before successfully & new DVD's.


1) pass the Disk cleaner buy to some radio schack, and test it
2) test the cable in another device, and determine if faulty or not.
3) if not clean the terminal from DVD VS TV with c.cleaner
4) otherwise the Syscom inside and another associates circuit is faulty such like record ampl.
go to the repair shop for fix it.
God bless you

Disc inserted but NO DISK message appears


Try other discs to see if its still working properly...most likely the recording on the disc is not burnt properly or there's something wrong with the disc, (ie, scratched or surface dirt etc) or the DVD player just can't read the disc...for example can it read the type of disc(does it read dvd+r or dvd-r, or both?--- if i remember rightly)..... I've had discs that have had bad recordings but can still be read if placed into tray a particular way around... randomly try different positions, also cleaning disc as you go...depending on how desperately you want it to read the disc...could also be bad disc batch... there could be many reasons...

My Panasonic E55 is having problems reading disks after I try to erase something on them. I erase without success and then it tells me the disk is unformatted. Also will not format disk after that. I...


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I just want to commiserate with you. I am having the same problem. I guess the problem started about three weeks ago. The recorder will not recognize any blank DVD-R discs and it only recognized 1 out of 4 new DVD-RAM discs. It would read most of my older DVD-RAM discs but would refuse to erase some of the old recorded programming. It also refused to recognize some of the older DVD-RAM discs, so in frustration I reformatted one. I was able to record and watch a couple of shows, but now it is saying "Unformat" for that disc.
About a year ago, the DVR gave ma some trouble and I was able to fix it myself. (I think it suddenly wouldn't power on, but I don't really remember if it was that or if it was a "SELFCHECK" error.) I had to open up the case and replace two capacitors. I bought the replacements at Radio Shack and my son helped me solder them on. My next step with this DVR will be to open up the case and look for any obvious problems. The worn-out capacitors looked oily and damaged, as I recall.

Dvd player wont play


Make sure that the DVD Disc is of the format that your DVD recorder can read. For example, if your recorder specifically requires a DVD -R type disk, it will puke on a DVD +R disk.

WHEN I RECORD A DVD IN MY MWR 10D6 DVD RECORDER IT IS NOT ABLE TO BE PLAYED IN MY OTHER DVD PLAYER WHICH IS A TOSHIBA. WHEN YOU PUT THE DVD IN IT ALWAYS SAYS PLEASE CHECK DISK. THIS ONLY HAPPENS WITH DVD'S...


When you burn your DVD the disc has to go thru a FINALIISATION process before it can be used on other DVD players. Sounds like either your recorder hasn't run the finalisation or it doesnt do one, in which case your DVD's wont work on another player. Check thru your menu's for a FINALISATION option and make sure you run it.

Play Back


Some DVD players can't read -R & -RW disks. When you finalize make sure it is in Video mode not VR mode so the recorded disk will be able to work in most other DVD players. Also some DVD players only read recorded disks rated up to 1x, 4x, 8x, 16x, or a combination of these speeds.
