Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder
Hi Guys I've been using my ES10 to play normal DVD's, DVD-RAM and DVD-RW but all of a sudden it has stopped recognising any discs that I put into it. When I try and play any type of disc, the error message 'No Read' comes up, and on the screen I get the message saying 'Disc not recognised - please check disc' (or words to that effect). I bought a universal lens cleaner DVD - thinking that this may be the issue, but after putting it into the drive I was presented with the same message. When I removed the disc, I found there were 5 burn marks in the disc, which have ruined it - it looks like my ES10 is angry. One more point - I can't hear the discs spinning when I try them, just a muted beep and a sort of clunking sound Can anyone help?
I've had the "can't read disc problem" and "noise" when the
disc is turning. It's not the lens. The rubber pad/ring that the
CD/DVD sits on gets "dirty" and doesn't grab the disc well enough
and the disc slips. It's especially a problem when recording, because
it can ruin the discs, and make then unusable.
I took mine apart and cleaned the rubber ring and that solves the problem.
(for a while anyway) I think the rubber pad has hardened and lost it's grip,
so I have to clean it more and more often now.
1) Unplug it (I take all the cables off)
2) Take the top cover off (5 philips head screws) Don't touch any of the electronics.
3) Remove the blk plastic DVD reader cover CAREFULLY (6 philips head screws)
Don't move any of the parts on the cover or it's really hard to put back together.
4) Gently wipe off the rubber ring with a damp lint free cloth
5) Put the blk cover back on, plug it in, and test it with a disc take make it sure works.
6) Put the metal cover on and you're done.
I used to work as an electrical engineer so I feel comfortable taking this kind of stuff
apart. If you don't, you can buy a new one or have someone else clean it.

I have a similar problem. I can still play DVDs but not audio CDs. I also bought a lens cleanef but that didn't help though mine isn't burned like meves135's.

I have the same problem with my ES10. ( only 18m old hardly used) I believe it maybe a faulty laser.
