Question about Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD Recorder
I had the DMR-HS2 for 4 years without a single problem but that ended a week ago when we had a power outage. When the power came back on, it went through the usual recover sequence but this time, it says error with HDD and asked if I want to re-format. I have tried to select "NO" and hope that it would return to normal eventually but that didn't work. As much as I hate to delete all my saved recordings, I selected "YES" to re-format but after waiting for a minute or two, the display show "Format Failed". I have tried this several times but same result. The DVD player operates OK, just not able to use the HDD. Can anyone help?
The following did the trick for me (self-check loop problem).
Replace the STRG6353 power regulator chip on the power board. The original costs about 30 euro, a clone (which I used and seems to work just fine) costs about 7,50 euro. (I got it at www.lejos.nl)
The power board is located underneath the HD drive.
Hope this helps.

I have a panasonic DMR E-60 and had the same problem. What I did was remove 2 side screws and 3 rear screws and lifted top cover off. Then if you are facing the front of the unit to the right of cd unit there is a little nipple that locks the mechanism. Push that in, which would be to the left if your facing the front of the unit. Then press the eject button. Mind you it must be plugged in to power. Be careful not to touch any of the green boards or metal. Hope I was clear. I sent it to panasonic but they wanted 40. just to look at it and up to 140.00 to fix it.
