Hi,not shure if this is your problem but if you are recording shows from tv & you are in av2 of output you will have no recording even though it shows that the recording has begun,all tv recordings must be in the av1 output mode to record from tv I have learned that few times thinking that all is working but to find out that I was in the av2 output mode which was really not recording the whole time,before I begin any recordings I from now on check that I am in the av1 mode then I know the recording will be working,take care ECK

DVD recorder dubbing/playing problems


your disc reader is dirty and needs cleaned..this can be done 2 ways.. one is to buy a can of electronic dusting spray, use the wand attatched to the nozzle .. stick the wand into the dvd slot and spray short bursts into the center area of the slot( dvds record and play from the center-out) the other is to find the screws that hold the cover on the unit(usually phillips head) and remove them..carefully remove the entire cover exposing the inner works of the recorder, again using the duter spray, clean the entire inside of the unit..paying close attention to the lens area of the reader..make sure not to blast it too hard and loosen the base..just enough to dust it off..then replace the cover and run the unit normally.. these units are quickly showing up at resale shops everywhere as folks are getting new digital recorders that record to a hard drive..so you may find a replacement there..I have several..

Tip

Recommended Media When Using the VRD-MC3


OK, I purchased this device in order to tranfer/preserve stacks of old 8mm and VHS tapes to DVD, quickly, without any desire to perform any editing. I have created several DVD's using the PC and find this to be extremely time consuming, although you have total editing control. I started out with the VRD-MC3 using Memorex inkjet printable DVD+R (16X) blank media (not on Sony's suggested media list) and met with limited success. Was using SP mode in order to get 2 hrs worth of tape on to 1 DVD. After awhlie I started experiencing the dredded "finalize disc" errors, which it couldn't do after sitting there for 2 hrs, and ended up with a few coasters. In talking with Sony, they felt this was most likely attributable to bad media and recommend using a few different brands such as their own, TDK, Verbatim, Maxell. So, I thought I'd try Sony DVD+R (1-16x) blank DVD media and gave it a try, feeling that if it didn't work well with their own media, then it most likely wouldn't do well with any other brand either. I have met with success using this media and had no problems recording tapes that produced coasters the first time. Overall I'm happy with this product but it's finicky and seems to work best if you stick to using Sony's products.

Recorder keeps 'self checking' then taking dvd back to begining, although only on recordable dvd's, not rented. Are recorders worth repairing or are you better just buying another?


I have had a Panasonic DMR-E85 with this exact same problem you are describing. As I bought a Freeview Dual-tuner PVR I just bought a second-hand DMR-E55 as I liked the Panasonic interface. Two months down the line it is now exhibiting the exact same problems, except now as well as the continual self-check rebooting, it's also refusing to eject the disk. Booo. Time for me to buy a new DVD recorder again, and this time certainly not Panasonic... :(

Record to disk


I was having the same problem and tried many different types of DVD-R (16x, 8x, even 4x thining speed might be the problem) finally went to the web page and downloaded the updated program. When I put that download into the disk drive the machine read it and the problem went away. Had not been able to use high speed before that either but it worked after the updated program was in it.

DMR-E50 DVD RECORDER


Hi
That's very strange, I have not seen a Panasonic do that before.
There are two things I would try.

1) Remove the batteries from the remote controller. This will rule out the possibility of the buttons making contact due to moisture or a fault in the controller. Then see if the problem occurs.

2) Unplug the power cable from the DVD recorder and leave it disconnected for at least 30 minutes before reconnecting it. This will reset your machine in case something has been corrupted.

3) When you have reconnected it, check the programme settings to make sure they are all clear.

4) Your machine could be picking up some radio interference if there is a transmitter close by. This is an unlikely cause, but if you suspect it, try plugging your machine into a different power socket and re-route the connection cables.

This particular model, like numerous Panasonics, suffers with an overheating regulator on the power board. They almost all fail from about two years onwards. The regulator gets very hot during normal operation and is not adequately protected from thermal runnaway. Regulator faults can cause a number of problems such as continuous self checking, switching off, and not reading certain discs. I have not known the regulator to cause unprovoked recording, but there can always be a first time. If the regulator is causing problems, the unit is easy for an engineer to repair. I can provide information on how to repair faulty Panasonic regulators if you need it.

Best wishes

check your dvd that may not be a recordable dvd. You have to use either DVD R+, R-, or rewritable RW+/- disk. where did you buy it?

DVD Recorder keps re-starting self test & will also not finalize discs.


This seems to be a common problem with the E55 and E85 models, could be one of two things, either the RAM Drive or the Power control ic (STRG6353 primary side of PSU), i would suspect its the latter. You'll need an engineer to replace this component.

Panasonic DVD problems


sorry to say but both of these sound like loader problems.ie the optics are faulty,you have to replace the full assy called a loader assy when this happens.Panasonic are the only company who offer part exchange tru authorised dealers.ie send back the faulty one and they will give reduced price on new one,.As to other makes see a lot of sonys with optic problems as well so isint just a panasonic problem.You could also try using ordinary dvdrs instead of ram discs as the optic has to work harder when recording and playing ram disc due to information contained.Hope I helped!
