Open Question

Hooking up my plasma to a Panasonic digital tuner & dvd player

I have recently bought (today) a Panasonic DVD Recorder Model No. DR-EX75 to replace my standard panasonic digi box - I had no dvd player. I simply took the scart cable from the back of the digi box and plugged it into the appropriate scart socket on the new dvd recorder and likewise the aerial socket and additionally dealt with the mains power supply. I cannot get a proper signal. I only receive a picture in black and white which flickers constantly - I have tried changing all the input options on my screen none of which seem to make any difference. Please bear in mind additionally that the panasonic is a monitor only and does not receive a television signal. I'd appreciate anyones help before I take it back to the shop. Many thanks

SOURCE: Panasonic DVD Recorder - Digital tuner stopped working

Is your recorder hooked up to the new convert box for digital antenna reception?
I am currently researching the convert boxes for my dvd recorder. I found that some dvd recorders already have digital converter boxes already installed. This might be the case for you.

SOURCE: Connecting Sony PS2 to Panasonic HT32LZD85

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.

Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).

If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.

Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.

Does the JVC DR-MV5S DVD recorder/VCR combo unit have an analog tuner or digital tuner, so that you can record one channel while watching a different channel on your TV?

You can read what JVC is telling about the recorder. It is not an digital tuner, but still you can record a DVD and watch another channel or vice versa.

The DVD player on my Panasonic DVD DMR-EX75 is not working. It no longer is able to read the DVD disk. Is it worth repairing or replacing the DVD drive? The system also has a large Hard Drive which still...

It is up to you, if you are able to obtain a replacement DVD drive for this model series, and it isn't too expensive, go ahead. There may be tips on installing the DVD deck on other forums - or it might be really simple (a DIY job) - or for extra labour costs, a qualified technician can fit it for you in a service centre.

So the short answer is YES it is worth repairing since the HDD is still functioning - if you are concerned about that as well as the DVD drive, get the whole unit assessed by a workshop; they can advise you further.

A second opinion always helps in a case like this, but I would recommend trying to obtain a replacement DVD drive for this model, either locally or by ordering online. This one IS fixable.
