Question about Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD Recorder

Open Question

HDD won't work after Power failure. Re-format failed!

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.

SOURCE: Disc won't eject, stays in "RECOVER" mode

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.

Possible that the main power supply has failed and so it is important that with your skills you must be able to check the power to the SMPS - switch mode power supply.
If power is good then the processor must be checked or there is failure on the motherboard.

I have a Panasonic DVD Video Recorder model DMR-E85H manufactured in 2004. It has worked perfectly for all these years but now won't power up at all. I have checked the only fuse I could find inside...


The power supply board is the problem, one of the most common failure is the 1000uf capacitor "open" located near the power transistor that is heat sinked, value may be higher or lower with one or two caps, the second possibility is the power transistor may be open or shorted.

Hello.
I had a similar problem with my DMR-ES15 a little over 2 years ago, and, I too, could not find a solution. I resorted to sending it off to Panasonic for their 'out of warrantee' repair, for a hefty price. (I could have bought new, but really liked the features of the ES15.) Panasonic repaired it, and it worked well for another 2 years. Just recently, 3 weeks ago, it died it's second death, with the same issue. I wish I had a solution for both of us, but it seems it is a failure which cannot be repaired by the consumer. I had seen a previous post, which has a suggestion of looking for '2 failed capacitors', but no other information, not even where these capacitors are located in the machine. I enterd a post myself, but have received so solutions/suggestions, and I don't even see my post on this site anymore. I'm a little disappointed with 'Fixya'...
If I find any new information, I'll be sure to post it.

Can I access the video saved on hdd of dmr-e85h with a computer? The power supply on the unit failed and I want to recover the recorded video on the hard disk drive.


you can pull the hdd out of the player and put it into another cabinet, either another player or an external hdd cabinet also known as caddys. you can buy caddys on e-bay or pc shops.

Is there away to make it multi regeon so i can play regeon 1 dvds aswell as regeon 2 please


Sadly, no: you need to buy a chipped remote. You can find these on eBay for around £12 Sterling. Look for the multishot devices (eight uses) rather than single shot, as they can work out a lot cheaper if you (and friends/family) have more than one unit to unlock. Some dealers will even offer a £5 rebate on return of the remote if you do not wish to keep it as a spare.

Note that doing this without express authority from Panasonic will render your warranty void!

If you're still having problems, let me know and I can sell you my half-used remote!

Problem about turning on


Hi, seems that the ribbon cable, which connects HDD & DVD & video-processing card isn't properly fixed to the stripe contactors. If one of both drives isn't connected, ( even on some contacts only) the other doesn't work, resulting in the described fault. The unit won't boot up.
Had this fault atime ago and had to push the ribbons a little harder into the connector and glued it.
Works since then about a year or so.
By the way, I have a 80 Gb replace-HDD, different brand, as the original one failed. NO problems at all, just louder than before, as it isn't the superquiet Maxtor.
If you try to read the unmounted HDD in a PC, the filesystem is changed or disturbed, resulting in the need to FORMAT, when putting it back into the Pana. Done this just by curiosity, all videos gone then. Even with a HDD, that works properly in the Pana.
