Same problem. Contacted Panasonic. Technician indicated that there is a problem between the CPU and the timer. The unit is three years old and out of warranty, so he offered Panasonic's service at $120 for labor plus any parts.
So I gave it one more try. I pressed and held the REC on the Power button for about 10 seconds, which reset the unit. Then I was able to play a DVD and eject it.
Hope this helps with your unit.

Saludos : Yo tenia el mismo problema. Mi dvd DMR-E30 tenia el
mismo problema . Codigo U99 . Y no funsionaba nada.
Entre a la pagina de soportes de Panasonic y baje el Firmware.
Luego lo grabe en un cd ,el cd lo coloque en la dvd y la dvd se actualiso automaticamente. La dvd funciona perfectamente tanto
con DVD-RAM como con DVD-R. Esta solucion la saque de esta
misma pagina fixya . Gracias Fixya. Att. LACF

The "U99" error code signifies a "general communications failure."
It is not associated with one specific problem.
It can be related to the version of firmware your DVD recorder is currently using and it has been associated with the TV Guide on screen guide.
If your unit displays U99, turn the power off-unplug the
unit for 5 minutes, and reconnect the power.
If U99 reoccurs, please contact the Global Service Center Network for assistance.
