Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Some discs will not finaliize.

In each case they are Sony DVD - . Some finalize and play OK but some will not. The machine also makes a grinding noise during the attempt to finaliise. So far, this has only happened when I try to transfer from one particular VHS cassette. Having not finalised, it then displays "the disc is only available for playback. It will also not erase any items (thus behaving as if it has finalized the idsc - but it has not)

Your help would be appreciated

Regards

Robert

    My unit (approx 1.5yrs old) is exhibiting a similar grinding noise and also has problems finalizing discs. It doesn't really seem to matter what type of disc is in the drive (I believe it's a pending hardware failure).

Turns out the rubber disc grip on the spindle simply needs to be cleaned (using an alcohol wipe). This is the part that holds the disc firm while it's spinning...the noise and failed disc reads comes from this rubber getting dirty and allowing the disc to slip. Total time to fix including disassembly was less than 15 minutes!

Need to know how to finalize recorded disc so that it can be played in regular dvd player


You can record and finalize DVD+Rs one time. After you fill a DVD+R or

complete all the recordings you want on a single DVD+R, finalize it.

Otherwise, the DVD+R will play only on this Recorder.To play the Disc on

other DVD Players, you must finalize it first.

Once you finalize a DVD+R, you cannot record on it anymore or make

editing changes.Therefore, make sure the Disc is as you want it before you

finalize it.

1



Press SYSTEM MENU. Press

; to select in the top left

corner of the menu bar at the top of the TV screen.

2



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select in the second screen,

then press



:.

3



Press CH-

9 repeatedly to select Finalize disc. Finalize disc

appears in the menu only when an unfinalized DVD+R is in the

Recorder.

4



Press OK.

"Finalizing" will appear in the menu.The process may

take a few minutes.


When finalization is complete, the Index

picture screen will reappear.

You cannot unfinalize a DVD+R, and you cannot record or

edit the DVD+R after you finalize it.

A DVD+R will play on other DVD Players only after the
Disc is finalized.

Won't play on any other dvd


You have to use your friend's DVD recorder to finalize the disc. Once the DVD is finalized, it will play in other DVD players.
On your friend's DVD recorder, pop the disc in, and use his remote to go to Setup --> Disc Edit --> Finalize --> OK
Voila!
