I also have a DMR-EH60 which after some time failed to finalize recorded dvd's. When finalizing the dvd unit was making grating noises and then would display the finalized failed note.
The machine was sent in for servicing which worked fine for a few months and failed again.
In dicussion with the technican we found that the rubber drive plater for the disc was getting contaminated with a dust type residue which allows the disc to slip in it's drive causing the reader to be confused, with the result of a failed finalizing function.
If you are game disconnect from the power and open the unit up and carefully take the top off the dvd unit and clean the plater with is-propyl alcohol, this seemed to work fine.The residue problem will be an on going problem however once you have cleaned it once it's pretty straight forward.Just be careful removing and reinstalling the dvd top cover.

    I followed your instructions to the letter and it worked perfectly for me. I was amazed how much dust etc had accumulated on the small round rubber drive plater. Thank you for your excellent advice

How is a disc finalized?


Hi, you have to go into the settings, just to point out, you can only finalize discs that have been recorded on the dvd recorder not from any other machine or pc.

Finalizing a dvd fails to complete function.


The power supply board on the DMR-E85H has problems. The earlier boards suffered from leaking capacitors and the later boards from voltage regulator problems. Go to the following links for details and photos on how to fix: Replacing capacitors:http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display Replacing the voltage regulator:http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 Hope this helps. My machine had the same problem and has the later ps board. The voltage regulator replacement worked perfectly.

Can't play the DVD from Panasonic


Sorry for your loss. If he transferred everything using his Panasonic recorder, it is possible that he never finalized the discs to be played in other machines. If you still have the Panasonic, put the disc in and press the Functions button on the remote ---> choose Other Functions from the screen --> Disc Management --> Finalize your disc. This is one of many possible reasons but a good start. Good Luck - Tamara

Panasonic DVD Recorder


We need to narrow down where the problem lies. Even without finalizing the disc, you should be able to play back the recording. Can you do this? If you can play back the recording, the problem exists in the finalization stage and we'll need to concentrate there. Pplease update this and we'll proceed to the next step.

Thanks,
Dan

Panasonic DVD player won't finalize


You can try a dvd+r disc. Borrow one before buying a stack of them.

The other thing is that you may not have enough free space left to burn the finalization track; 7 1/2 hours is a lot of recordings.

Give the +R disc a try even though it says it can't use them in your documentation, a lot of users report it works anyway.

Please don't forget to rate all of our solutions here on the board. Thanks.

Help w/ panasonic burner


I own one and it is a pain to work. Put in the disc and vhs tape and hit the bottom right button, I believe it says DVD and above it says dubbing. Hold it for a few seconds and the screen will come up and the system will do the rest recording from your VHS tape to the disc. You MUST finalize the disc after you are finished if you want to watch it in another DVD players if not it will only work on the Panasonic. Hope this helps.

HOw do I finaluze the disc?


I couldn't figure out how to finalize the first disc I recorded either. It wasn't offered on the menu where the manual said it should be. I finally called Panasonic and found out that the disc I used cannot be finalized. I am new with all this, and I just used the DVD-RAM that came with the DVD recorder. This may be obvious to you, but DVD-RAMs can be used over and over again but cannot be finalized. The person recommended -RW that is rewritable but can also be finalized. Maybe this will help you, too. In addition, if you have the correct disc, you should be able to go into "Functions," then "Other Functions," then "DVD Management," and see "Finalize" as an option there. Good luck!
