Panasonic DMR-ES30v Combo- Message of "Check disc for error"

I'm Recording from cable DVR to DVD recorder,start transfer,appears to be copying..return later,..message is "Check disc for error".Do not know at what point recording stopped..how about this,sometimes it records OK,next time I get "Check disc message".

I have used different mfg.discs,Memorex,Sony,Magnavox...The "+" and the "-" format..have used dvd disc cleaner...it boils down to ...sometimes it works and sometimes it don't.....I have no issues with DVD playback.

One thing I have not done is stand and stare at the unit to determine when the recording aborts.

Pay TV in Australia will record "no problem" BUT BUT when it is a pay per view or Box Office etc it will be blocked in a similar way as Macrovisin that is recognized in the encoding of the recording device that the signal is passing through. The result point blank displayed you are not allowed to record this program or it is blocked or distorted part of the way through the recording etc...

Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

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.

Model DMR-ES30VEB. I have had this recorder for a few years now but since I got a new Sony TV at christmas I am having problems recording. When I record a programme the DVD says it does not recognise the...


DVD-RW discs are ideal for temporary video recording and data backup, but they are not recommended for successful finalising, as there is no guarantee that the disc will work in another device.

Have you tried using DVD-R discs? these CAN be recorded in video mode AND finalised for compatible playback in other players. I assume the DMR-ES30V is a DVD/VCR combo unit - if so, the DVD recorder will not recognise RW discs; only DVD-RAM and DVD-R.

DVD-R discs are recommended for video recording and finalising in this model. (later model Panasonic DVD recorders allow RW disc recording).

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I


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.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

My compliments to the foresight of your father. Your described concern is not caused by a "lock". It is indicative that the recording session was not 100% completed. Rather than 'crack', what is required is the final step in the recording. All the DVDs must be "finalized" in the same machine that recorded the movies, the Panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-ES30V. The finalize option would be in the MENU/Settings and must be enabled. Finalization per disc would take some time.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

PANASONIC DVD RECORDER


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Since both are record capable:
  • hook the Video and Left/Right Audio OUT of the DMR-ES30V to one of the composite/matching INPUT of the DMR-EX88;
  • use the DMR-ES30V as a player and the DMR-EX88;
  • to be able to watch and monitor the output, temporarily hook up the OUTPUT of the DMR-EX88 to the INPUT of the TV.

PANASONIC DVD RAM DISC RECORDING


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To my knowledge the only basic requirement to play a recorded disc into another machine (even of the same brand) is that the disc must be finalized. The recorder must be instructed that no further recording is intended and that the recorded disc wold be in use externally (some other standalone player).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Panasonic dvd vhs burner model dmr-es30v


Hey scott10news,

According to your owners manual(http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES30V.PDF) Its showing SLF Check means there has been a power interruption and the system is attempting "restoring" itself.

Unfortunately, I had somewhat of a similar problem with my Panasonic DVDR. Every time i tried to record or finalize a disc it would just display recover and then shut off. The reason I say unfortunately is I had to send it out for service to be repaired, there appears to have been a problem where the unit was had become corrupted.

It might be necessary to bring the unit in for a diagnostic and/or estimate for repairs.

Wish I had better news.

I have three Panasonic DVD recorder/Vhs combos and I get the same problem from time to time...it 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
