Question about Panasonic DMR-E65 DVD Recorder
I have tried TDK& Verbatim, but sometimes the recording time cuts to only 15 mins instead of 120 mins. Those that run the full time sometimes won't 'finalise'.
This has only happened over the last few months. It has worked perfectly over the last few years. This relates to DVD-R. The DVD-RAM recordings have no problem
Hope the problem can be solved. Pete..

The heat is caused by IC001 which is a regulator that is mounted on a completely inadequate heatsink on the power board. This component gets very hot during normal operation.
The regulator will usually last a couple of years, depending on how often the machine is used and then start playing up. The symptoms are intermittent operation, continuous self checking and rebooting, not being able to read discs and so on.
Eventually the component can short-circuit, burn out and take other components with it. The on-board fan is thermostatically controlled. It does not operate all the time, only when the unit gets hot enough. By using an external fan, you are keeping the unit cool enough for its own fan never to cut in. The additional cooling is probably squeezing a bit more life out of the regulator and is stopping its own fan from operating.
I have repaired lots of these and have never found a faulty fan, or fan switching fault. There's always a first time of course.
It is more likely that the regulator IC001 is faulty and if you are technically skilled, I would suggest you seriously consider replacing it. Use some heatsink compound and an extra heatsink, and it will probably do the trick. The regulator is an STRG6353. You can get these easily online from a number of outlets. Don't attempt a repair if you are unsure of what you are doing. Regards..

We need to narrow down where the problem lies. Even without finalizing the disc, you should be able to play back the recording. Can you do this? If you can play back the recording, the problem exists in the finalization stage and we'll need to concentrate there. Pplease update this and we'll proceed to the next step.

There maybe a problem with the optic lens (dirt) try to clean it very gently with cotton, also the motor plate that holds the cd/dvd is not holding it very well so it not rotates at proper speed try to clean the both sides where the hole of the cd/dvd is when it´s inserted, if you think that you migth not have skills for that don´t do it.
Hope it help
