Question on suggested solution

I received a reply on 4/18 for a posted problem with my panasonic dmr-es30vs dvd recorder / vcr combo. yet i'm not exactly sure what it is i'm supposed to do. the solution was "plug out the dvd to reset itself and you are on, good luck." i don't understand if you mean unplug the machine from the electric outlet on the wall or if it means unplug a connection that is going from the dvd unit to the tv. i appriciate the quick responce,however i guess i'm a little slow when it comes to dvd electronics. thanks in advance for the help. hocky99

Resetting can mean totally removing power to the unit by unplugging from the mains outlet. The waiting time before reconnecting is to make sure that all the charges on the filter capacitors are completely empty before plugging it again (to the power mains).

Didnt see your last question but you can reset by plugging out from mains,leave unplugged for about 30secs before plugging back in?

Panasonic DMR-ES30V DVD / VCR Combo Recorder - where can I buy another? If I have to buy latest model, will it finalise DVD's made on the above model?

You may be able to find an identical model for this combo unit on eBay or similar, otherwise if you do end up purchasing a new unit (for example a DMR-EZ48V which is a Panasonic) - you cannot finalise discs recorded on one model in a different one, and I doubt you would be able to even on an identical model, since there would be variations in their digital control circuitry.

This is why recorded DVDs must be finalised in the drive they were written in to enable compatible playback in standard players. You cannot change recording models or drives prior to finalising.

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

Send an email to: and write "Panasonic DMR-ES30V repair brief" in the Subject field. Tell Mike your problem and he will send you his repair guide.

Basically you need to replace two capacitors in the unit.

I have three Panasonic DVD recorder/Vhs combos and I get the same problem from time to may be the disks you are using.  Mine absolutely hate Sony disks.  I have the best luck with TDK or Maxell.  You also must clean your unit frequently, if you do alot of recording.  I use my units daily.

Hope this helps
