    Make sure your DVD-RAM is inside the "caddy" that came with it, and make sure the caddy is set to "unprotected". I had the same problem.

Make sure the DVD RAM is in the plastic caddy that came with the unit, and make sure that caddy is marked unprotected.

All dvd-ram, even new, apear to be protected, locked. I can not modify this status from 'disk management menu'. I can not record on them


You cannot record on ANY disc in this unit? Protection on? I have a DMR-EZ48V with the same issue. Protection ON - RW DVDs not recognised. From recent experience, I am advised that it is the DVD-RAM drive, this is not a serviceable part, it must be replaced, and the existing firmware upgraded/reset by an authorised service centre. Only a workshop with the right facilities can restore the record function in these combos, if it indeed CAN be restored. Panasonic are aware of this as a common problem but they cannot explain it. Not economical or cheap via this option - as new DVD drives can cost anywhere around $400+ plus labour!

Is it worth taking to a repair shop to get a FREE quote on likely costs? It's up to you. I don't want to feed you anything here, except what Panasonic Australia have informed me about.

My Panasonic E55 is having problems reading disks after I try to erase something on them. I erase without success and then it tells me the disk is unformatted. Also will not format disk after that. I...


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I just want to commiserate with you. I am having the same problem. I guess the problem started about three weeks ago. The recorder will not recognize any blank DVD-R discs and it only recognized 1 out of 4 new DVD-RAM discs. It would read most of my older DVD-RAM discs but would refuse to erase some of the old recorded programming. It also refused to recognize some of the older DVD-RAM discs, so in frustration I reformatted one. I was able to record and watch a couple of shows, but now it is saying "Unformat" for that disc.
About a year ago, the DVR gave ma some trouble and I was able to fix it myself. (I think it suddenly wouldn't power on, but I don't really remember if it was that or if it was a "SELFCHECK" error.) I had to open up the case and replace two capacitors. I bought the replacements at Radio Shack and my son helped me solder them on. My next step with this DVR will be to open up the case and look for any obvious problems. The worn-out capacitors looked oily and damaged, as I recall.

Failure to accept DvD Ram discs in a Panasonic DMR-E55 Recorder


Possibilities are that the laser lens needs cleaning (use a proprietary cleaning disc) or that - as long as you are sure you have original manufacturers' discs and not fakes - the discs are scratched or dirty.

Panasonic DMR E55 Won't record AT&T U-Verse programs!


Make sure you only use the correct type of discs: DVD-RAM or DVD-R for recording and DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-Video, DVD-Audio, Video CD, CD-Audio (CD-DA) and CD-R/RW (MP3, CD-DA, Video CD formatted discs) for playback.

DVD-RAM disks are in plentiful supply on eBay, both new and used. Keep an eye open and you should pick them up, new, for less than £1 Sterling each!

I am unclear, though, what you mean about recording to and from the VCR. The DMR-E55 doesn't have a VCR facility, just DVD.

Insert the VHS tape. Do not press play. Insert a DVD RAM or DVD-R into the DVD side and press and hold DVD DUBBING, it should start playing the VHS immediately while recording on the DVD side.
