Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

Open Question

Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD recorder stopped recording using all methods. Please help.

I was watching a programme I'd recorded in chasing play when it froze part way through recording. Since then it won't record using any method (direct record, timer record or videoplus). When I try to record using timer record, it turns on at the correct time but then immediately says 'bye' and switches off. When I check on the Timer Programme List screen I get an 'F' icon on the left of the listing which the manual says means the disc is full or the maximum number of programmes was reached so the programme failed to record. Neither reasons is correct as I have tried using new discs as well as completely erased discs and have completely cleared the timer recording programme. I have also tried unplugging it for several hours all to no avail. Please could someone help with this problem. Thanks.

SOURCE: unlock code to play any dvd and record to hard drive

You need a special remote, there are no codes. Have a google for "panasonic region free" and you'll see what I mean. I have the same model and had to take to a dealer to unlock for me. Panasonic are a bit unfriendly about unlocking dvds as I think they are part of the whole DVD organisation. there are ways to do it with a Palm device or something like it (even a pc with IR port) but it is tricky. You can also rent a suitable remote for about £20 I think, again google it and you'll find companies that offer that.
Hope that help, though I guess you may have sorted it by now as you posted about 6 months ago,
Stu.

SOURCE: Recording from DVD recorder to disc

Christine,

1) Put a compatible DVD in the tray. (I have noticed that I must format DVD+R discs, but others are formatted okay for recording -- such as DVD-R and DVD RW)
2) Close the tray.
3) Make sure the player is set to HDD and not to DVD. It will indicate HDD, DVD, or SD on the LCD screen.
4) Using the remote press the "functions" button.
5) Select "copy" from the menu when it appears.
6) You will now see the list of programs you have recorded to the HDD. Highlight the one you want to copy and press "Enter" on the remote.
7) I think there are two confirmation screens that come up, press start or continue or whatever it says.
8) My recorder generally takes about 14 minutes at high speed to copy a two-hour program. If the program is longer than 2- hours, you must divide it into tow or more shorter segments for more than one DVD.
9) If you want to select several shorter programs (not to exceed 2-hours combined) highlight the programs individually pressing the PAUSE button on the remote. This places a check mark next to each of the programs. When you finish, press the enter button on the remote and go through the confirmations screens again.
10) If the DVD is nor rewritable, it will automatically run the "finalize" program. It takes about 3 minutes and runs after recording. This formats the DVD so that it can be played in non-Panasonic players. If it is a DVD-RW, they you must finalize it manually if you want to watch it on other types of players.

Hope this helps,

Nancy

Recently, i;ve been trying to record tv programs on my Panasonic DVD Video Recorder DMR-E50, as i have done so for many years. However, lately, whenever i program it to record a tv program using the timer...


Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

DMR-E50 DVD recorder versus DMR-ES15 are these equivalent recorders


The DMR-ES15 is a later model (around 2006/07) than the DMR-E50 (2003/04), but essentially both should do the same job so technically - a good equivalent in terms of recording and same brand so yes. The connections on the rear (of the replacement recorder) should suit and work with your other devices just as the old one did.

According to some other online reviews, the DMR-E50 has had a few issues with recording, and finalizing certain discs.

I'd say go for it - accept the replacement - as long as it comes with some kind of guarantee, works fully and has all the accessories (including remote, instructions etc.) you should be good. Contact the store and seal the deal.

I hope you can get this in time for Christmas.

Pixilation when playback of dubbed and homemade DVDs


As mentioned on the Jan12 e-mailed Panasonic - surprise, no response! However on Panasonic's web site drill down to firmware upgrades for DVD machines. There is an upgrade available for the E50P. Straight forward fix, download to computer, expand it and copy to a CD-R. Put CD-R into E50 and recorder will check and update firmware. I did this on the 13th and have recorded two commercial free movies and both have played back perfectly after finalization. Time will tell. Hope this helps. Golferdon

Panasonic DVD problems


sorry to say but both of these sound like loader problems.ie the optics are faulty,you have to replace the full assy called a loader assy when this happens.Panasonic are the only company who offer part exchange tru authorised dealers.ie send back the faulty one and they will give reduced price on new one,.As to other makes see a lot of sonys with optic problems as well so isint just a panasonic problem.You could also try using ordinary dvdrs instead of ram discs as the optic has to work harder when recording and playing ram disc due to information contained.Hope I helped!
