This might be due to a dirty pickup or scan laser head, or the optics as a whole might be going bad (both are common problems). A qualified TV repair person should be able to determine if the scan laser or pickup head are bad by doing a laser power test. If the optical devices are dirty it is just a simple matter of cleaning them with a DVD cleaning disk, however if the optics are bad, then replacing them is actually cost inefficient, and you may want to think about getting a new DVD player/recorder.
I hope this helps,

There maybe a problem with the optic lens (dirt) try to clean it very gently with cotton, also the motor plate that holds the cd/dvd is not holding it very well so it not rotates at proper speed try to clean the both sides where the hole of the cd/dvd is when it´s inserted, if you think that you migth not have skills for that don´t do it.
Hope it help

You need to install or update the Firmware. Go to www.panasonic.ca and search your model. You will then need to download the firmware for your player and burn it/mount it as an ISO file on to cd. Just follow the instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.
It took me about 25min, but it is working fine now.

The 'No Read' error is a classic case of a failed laser (and/or DVD drive). In many Panasonic DVD devices (recorders, players and some Blu-Ray models) the laser is part of a traverse unit or 'assembly' (a block with laser and spindle motor in one). With this unit, unless you are tech. savvy and are aware of the likely cost(s) of replacement part(s) for this type of product, you can go ahead and order from Panasonic directly - subject to shipping and tax (assuming the part is available) - this could be expensive, and you would also need the right equipment/tools and experience to do this (it is much easier to simply replace the whole DVD drive itself in the unit - just note the original drive number and connection type before seeking a new one, after that - should be a straightforward fit, save on labour costs...) - these drives are not exactly easy to repair at individual component level; hence why in most cases the whole drive is replaced when part of it fails (not impossible to replace either!).
If you aren't familiar with this sort of thing, your next best bet is to submit the recorder to an authorised Panasonic service centre, obtain a (reasonable) quote on likely repair/part(s) cost(s), along with a second opinion, then you can make a firm decision on that basis. Up to you whether you pursue it further or not. The DMR-EZ28 is not as old as the DMR-ES15 and is more reliable in general. Assuming this can be repaired, it could be very expensive, so keep that in mind, but you won't know for sure unless you get a quote from a workshop. It may also take several weeks before repair (if possible) is completed.
If all else fails, or it is probably going to be too expensive/uneconomical to fix, or you cannot get a replacement DVD drive anywhere for this model, then consider a new one - but ONLY as a last resort. The cost of replacing a disc drive in your existing unit vs. the cost of a brand new machine could be significant.
Not the best news, but certainly worth investigating - if you want to do so.
