Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder
I have two DMR-E55 Recorders. One started to have the IC001 problem so I followed the helpful fix on this site and replaced the regulator. Having replaced everything correctly and replaced the cover I couldn't get the unit to power up. I replaced the plug fuse just in case but still no joy. I then removed the cover and saw an internal fuse on the board and wondered if that had blown. I didn't have a spare so I thought I'd be clever and try the one from the other E55. It didn't change anything on the repaired E55 and worse still on putting the fuse back in the one that was working, that now won't power-up. Is there some sort of 'reset' or have I inadvertantly done something wrong by taking the internal fuse out ?
The chances are that you bridged the printed track with a splash of solder when you replaced the regulator. A short circuit like this will cause the fuse to blow. You can get replacement 20mm slow blow 2amp fuses quite easily. But before you fit a new one, pull the board out again and have a very careful look under a magnifying glass at your solder joints. Get a small stiff bristle brush and carefully brush across the joints in case there is a tiny ball of solder across two points. When you reassemble the unit, ensure that the ribbon connectors are central and fully pushed into the sockets. I'm sure you can recover your DMR E55 reasonably easily. Best wishes
