Question about Panasonic DMR-E20 DVD Recorder

Line Of Distortion Along The Bottom of an Em20 Burned Disc

After recording some old VCR tapes to DVD-R discs using the Panasonic DMR E20 burner I played them on a standalone Toshiba DVD Player and a standalone Sony DVD player and they played fine on both players. However, when I play the discs using Windows Media Player or Real Player on our Gateway and Vaio computers, a thin disortion line appears along the bottom of the screen. The line is not present when played on non-computer DVD players and was not present on the original VCR tapes. I am using TDK blank media so I do not think it is a problem with inferior media.

    Thanks for the input, I will try the VLC Media Player. I am not sure what a codec problem is but is it likely to exist on both of our home computers? The two TVs that the standalone DVD players were attached to were both flat screen sets.

It's possible there is either a codec problem with your computer player. I would recommend trying a player such as VLC Media Player, to see if that works. If that isn't it, what kind of TV's are you watching the video on? Are they "tubed" or flat screen? If they are tubed, you wouldn't be able to see the line at the bottom like you do when you play the video on the computer.

This is a good sign that the power supply is having a problem. In standby or even on without a tape or disc, the current draw is low. Once a disc or tape is inserted there is a higher demand on the power supply. This is usually some defective capacitors that are easily replaced. Realize that there are other possibilities as well, but the power supply is the most common. The parts cost is in the $15 range.

Can not read disc


I mainly use my DVR to record TV shows on DVD-RAM discs (Panasonic brand or Maxell). I've had no problems with the DVD-RAM discs. However, today when I put a DVD-R disc in the recorder, I got an "Incompatible Disc" error message. I tried a second disc from the same set, and got the same message. I tried out some of the DVD-Rs that I recorded last year and I could read them. Tried a DVD-RAM. That was OK. So, I tried another DVD-R disc. That one is OK. I don't know if the problem is that these DVD-Rs are getting a little old (2 years??) or if the recorder is developing its own problems reading discs.

Help w/ panasonic burner


I own one and it is a pain to work. Put in the disc and vhs tape and hit the bottom right button, I believe it says DVD and above it says dubbing. Hold it for a few seconds and the screen will come up and the system will do the rest recording from your VHS tape to the disc. You MUST finalize the disc after you are finished if you want to watch it in another DVD players if not it will only work on the Panasonic. Hope this helps.
