SOURCE: Power on, makes the LED goes off
Yes, it is definitely worth fixing!
The problem you will have is getting someone to do it for a reasonable price. I can tell you how to repair it but you will need to find someone who can use a soldering iron or have a go yourself. If you haven't used a soldering iron before, it's not a skill that can be picked up over night. A bit like riding a bike, it seems impossible until you can do it.
The fault has almost certainly been caused by a faulty component on the power board. It's an easy repair but you will need to dismantle the unit to get to the board. It's not difficult. You can get a new component online for a few pounds/dollars.
Nikko Electronics will supply the component or there are other suppliers.
I have given full instructions >HERE< to repair the DMR E55. The E85 is not exactly the same, but its very similar and it will be the same component.
Hope this helps

The unit failed during self check, probably the power regulation board. A check by a qualified TV/VCR repair person is in order.

I have same problem with es40v - f60 error with no response to troubleshooting protocol. This machine also was used very little & also has a history of turning itself on. Panasonic used to make high quality products. A shame that their products are no longer trustworthy. I can understand that machines break - i'm very frustrated to learn replacement parts are not available. Guess i need to re- think brand loyalty.
