Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder

Panasonic DMR-55E. Disc stuck on play

I have a disc in my machine (about 4 years old - not used very much) and it is stuck on play. The picture doesn't display on my TV (I get the DVD RAM blue display) and the machine will not respond to any of the buttons on the remote or on the machine. I have tried the various combinations suggested in the manual and on this site, all to no avail. The only thing I can do is turn the machine back to standby, but I can't remove the disc or watch any others. Has anyone else had this problem or does anyone know how to solve it? Or would I be better taking it to a shop for repairs?

    I tried to do this, but didn't fully understand your instructions. What is the "first door"? I think I will take it to the TV repair shop in the next village.But thanks, anyway.

Put it in stand by and unplug machine and open first door and turn DVD up side down & slowly push down on tray leaning the DVD player down ward and the disk will fall out. I had to do this a few times. They have a over heatting problem and of course you find this out just after the warrenty is up. You can tell this by opening up the top cover. It will have 3 borads and the one on the right I bet it's color off yellow is more brown then the other 2.

There is a guy who had the parts and fixes them for around 50 ponds and it takes about an hour. I am looking him up for mine.

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since both are record capable:
  • hook the Video and Left/Right Audio OUT of the DMR-ES30V to one of the composite/matching INPUT of the DMR-EX88;
  • use the DMR-ES30V as a player and the DMR-EX88;
  • to be able to watch and monitor the output, temporarily hook up the OUTPUT of the DMR-EX88 to the INPUT of the TV.

PANASONIC DVD RAM DISC RECORDING


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge the only basic requirement to play a recorded disc into another machine (even of the same brand) is that the disc must be finalized. The recorder must be instructed that no further recording is intended and that the recorded disc wold be in use externally (some other standalone player).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

DVD player/ recorder problems... PLEASE HELP!!!


I have now had two Panasonic recorders 3 years apart and both have gone down with this same fault.

It's a shame as they are a fantastic recorder, I would have thought Panasonic would have put this right by now. It now 5 years on since I bought my first one and it sounds as if they still have the same fault.

Why the hell can't they just fit a standard computer dvd drive that’s cheap to replace, and not this abortion they fit.

I was looking on E-bay for Panasonic recorders that where faulty and found around twenty.

ALL WITH THE SAME FAULT

"DVD drive faulty"

I’m now looking for a new one but don’t know what to do as I have a ton of discs that need to be finalized, may just forget about them and keep clear of Panasonic in future.

DVD Player will not play 20th Century FOX disks


The Panasonic is not "region restricted". This is a security safeguard by studios to keep people from region 1 from using region 3 content. Some material is released in other countries first and later in others. This keeps other regions from using the content from other parts of the world before it is relaesed by the studio there. Your Zenith is not a region free player and the Panasonic is. There is sometimes hacks on Videohelp.com for DVD players to be set to "region free" but not all DVD players are built with it. SONY is another non-hackable DVD player.

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!
