There should be a button on your player or remote to switch between tv and dvd mode,try that,i'm sure its just a playback issue.and make sure your audio/video out to tv are connected ccorrectly to the tv.let me know if you get it going.

Check that Scart connections are pushed
fully home and that the Scart plug has not
come out on one side.
If separate audio and video connections are
in use check the Video (S-Video) output
from the DVD Recorder is connected to the
Video (S-Video) input of the TV

    DID YOU  hooked up exactly like the instructions say when using a digital cable box and a coaxial cable.

    Say you connect an antenna to the RF OUTPUT on a DVD. Since the RF in
    and out is designed to be a loop through, in many cases the signal from
    the antenna will still make it to the tuner of the VCR, provided that
    the DVD's RF modulator is switched OFF. Switch on the RF modulator
    though, and this "backwards" loop through will no longer work, as it is
    now trying to output a signal.

    Like you said, this is the only logical reason that the OP is able to
    record with the TV/DVD button switched to TV mode, but IS NOT able to
    record when it is switched to DVD mode. That is, he's got his RF
    connection backwards and his antenna is connected to the output jack and
    not the input jack where it belongs.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, some factors to be considered:

  • are you recording a TV program, if yes, is it from cable direct or through a cable box;
  • is the DVD recorder with a VCR unit attached to it;
  • how is the DVD recorder connected to the TV;
  • would help if the brands and model of the DVD recorder and the TV is known.
Should you find this posting informative and points you in the right direction, then pls ACCEPT or do not rate at all. If you decide however to REJECT and/or request additional feedback, then possibly, Benimur's subsequent postings would no longer be viewable.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    Hi again,

    Hope you gt to see this post.

    The basic idea is to connect the OUT to the IN, Yellow would be for video while the red and white would be for the audio.

Panasonic DVD recorder #DMR-EH65. It will accept a blank dvd then go into read,I can hear the lens assembly go back and fort several times,then it says disc error.Did the lens life expire?


Hello timmy: The recording process on the dvd recorder side is done is done by a seperate lens from the playback, so there could be something wrong with the writable side of the optical assembly, another thing to consider trying is the cleaning disc if you haven't tried this, another brand of blank disc and finally a firmware update is available from panasonic for the specific model you have, I don't know if you have updated it but here is the overall description: DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder Firmware Update
  • Version UP-317
  • Compatible Models DMR-EH55S
  • Issues Addressed Issues Addressed
    1. Corrects DVD Recorder hang-up or freezing during DVD playback caused by connection to Scientific Atlanta cable box model # 3250.
    2. Resolves U71 error message caused by HDMI connection to Philips TV.
    3. Improves DVD-Video playback of DVD+RW discs.
    4. Prevents DVD Recorder from turning on Panasonic TV's power by HDAVI control (EZ Sync) when connected with HDMI at completion of copying or finalizing.
    5. Resolves SET CLOCK MANUALLY tab being grayed out after a power failure.
I hope this is helpful and the update is available from panasonic.com, all you need is to type the model number in the search windows after you click the support option. Thanks!

I can record a show manualy while its on & all is fine. When I try to schedule a recrding it records but I get a blank screen upon playback. What am I doing wrong? I have directv.


Unless the tv and dvdr are paired I.E. both the same make and compatible models, then you will have problems. try setting the timer on the dvdr for a programme but set the channel to av(scart connecter used) and set the timer on the tv to the same.
Please note that AV2 on the tv usually sends the programme to the dvdr.

I cannot record using a DVD/VHS player.


You can record. From antenna to converter box, from converter box to vcr. From vcr to TV.
TV on Channnel 3 VCR on channel 3, and set channel on converter box. Then Record.

Time recording works the same way, but you can set for only one channel at a time. Tht is the only restriction that I have not overcome. The converter box sets the channel. Gee Whizz

Leaves blank TV screen when Return button operated


It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record. What is your recording source? Satellite and receiver? Antenna? Cable box? In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where? You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode. If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four. What is the model number?

Is it dying?


If the player is in VCR mode you will get this problem when loading discs, make sure the light on the front shows dvd. It also happens when trying to record form VHS to DVD in the dubbing menu if you are in DVD mode.

I am having problems hooking it up to an HD Receiver from Direct TV


playback and record are 2 different things. playback, you connect the DVD player audio-video OUT to the audio-video IN of the TV. recording, you connect the DVD player from the audio-video IN to the audio-video OUT of the source (i.e. cable box, set-top box, etc) hope this helps!
