Question about Panasonic DMR-E65 DVD Recorder

Open Question

'finalization failed' message

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..

SOURCE: Trouble with my Panasonic DVD recorder DMR-E55EB

Hi Dengle

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.

Thanks,
Dan

When trying to record a home video VHS to DVD this is what I get. E-4 54040990 Cannot record on this disc. The disc is brand new.


Have you've tried cleaning the laser with a cleaning disc?

Failing this it may be worth removing the cover and cleaning the lens directly with a QTip and some lens cleaning fluid. Only use a drop and then wipe off with a clean dry QTip.

The other option is that you are using an incompatible format of blank DVDs. I've heard of people having problems using DVD-R & DVD-RW and although it is lised as being suitable for all types of recordable DVDs I belive you're best using DVD+R & DVD+RW.

The Manual states

Recordable disc

• We strongly recommend for good recording quality:

SONY DVD+RW 4x, MAXELL DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, SONY DVD+R 4x/8x/16x, TDK DVD+R 4x/8x/16x,

MAXELL DVD-RW 4x, MAXELL DVD-R 8x/16x

• Discs that have been tested and are proven to be compatible with this recorder:

VERBATIM DVD+RW 4x VERBATIM DVD+R 8x
VERBATIM DVD-RW x VERBATIM DVD-R 8x JVC DVD-RW 4x MAXELL DVD-R 16x

Same just happened to me. I was using SONY CD-R audio 80 min recordable CDs. One burned 3 songs, the other 4 songs before giving me the "CD write failure" message. I tried another brand of CD-R, TDK CD-R, certified plus, and it worked first time. It played on my CD player, on the Ion, etc - works. Maybe the CD burner in the device is very picky as to the brand or quality of the CD-R media? Try a TDK or other to see if that will do it.
-Good luck! Bill

Tapes sounding funny


try using a smaller tapetime, the grinding noise your hearing is the gears of the tape take up within the casette not the camera, it seems the Sony tapes are 120mins long and the Sony tapes are heavier than TDK and your spool take up on the camera can't take it. the TDK tapes you were previously using may have been a shorter time than 120minute?...try any Hi 8 60min tapes instead. not the 120, they can be too heavy for the take up spool motor of the camera and all its doing is stretching and winding the cassette tape and unable to pull it with a 120 min cassette

I cannot find TDK XA80 CD-R Audio - Recordable Compact Discs


All you guys looking for AUDIO burner CDs' should try the MEMOREX CD-R MUSIC CDs. These are a new product, released to REPLACE the TDK XA80 AUDIO CDs.

Stocks are a bit low right now - but only because this is a new product - and people like me are buying up big.

'Tanya' at JB Hi Fi in Erina Fair on the NSW Central Coast, has promised me that she will be ordering plenty of these discs because she is aware of our dilema. Apparently Head Office of JB HiFi has also advised their numerous stores of this MEMOREX product and they should all be having them in stock shortly.

Product description:
Red cardboard box with 10 blank CDs in slim jewel cases. Marked "Memorex Music CD-R" 700MB (80min) Mine cost me $8.95c for this pack of ten.

These work fine on my stand alone, Hi-Fi LG dual tray burner and also on a mates' Pioneer CD burner. Good luck and thank God for Memorex!
