Question about Panasonic DMR-EH50S DVD Recorder
When powered up the recorder cycles thru "hello","bye", then "hello","please wait","bye without ever actually turning on. TheHDD is highlighted but no amount or combination of button pressing will change the cycle or the drive selected. if i open up the unit is it at least possible to salvage recordings from the hard disc? Thanks

I'm pretty sure the force disk eject is the same across all Panasonic models - however I couldn't find anything specific for your model number. Still worth a shot, though.
With the unit in standby, press and hold the 'Stop' and 'Ch up' buttons together. It should power up and force the tray open. If this doesn't work, try changing up your timing by pressing and holding 'Stop' first, then a half-second later, press and hold 'Ch up' and keep them both held together. You can also try the opposite.
If none of these work, it will have to be taken apart to get the disc out. If you aren't comfortable trying, it will have to go to service.

unfortunately, this unit is on system lock down due to massive main board failure. its kinda like a system protect mode. this can only be repaired by the manufacture or maybe an in house tech with knowledge of the board outline. i don't think this unit has an escape code for retrieving the dvd. hope that helps ya and thanks for using fixya:)
