SOURCE: DMR-55E dvd recorder timer fault

Hi there,

This is a common problem with this particular model. I can tell you what the fault is but unless you feel confident in using a soldering iron, the repair is best left to someone who is.

Ok...the fault you describe is caused by failure of IC001. This is a voltage regulator on the power board. You can identify the regulator as it is fixed to along thin metal strip near the middle of the board. It gets very hot during normal operation and will fail after a couple of years. The metal strip offers very little heat dissipation so the regulator operate in excess of its limits and therefore fails.

You need to take the lid off, remove the board which is mounted on the right hand side of the unit and replace the faulty regulator.

To remove the board, remove the fixing screw above the power connector on the back of the recorder, then the 4 fixing screws that secure the board. Next carefully remove the multi-connector that connects the board to other circuitry and lift the board clear.

A new regulator type STRG 6353 and can be obtained from several online suppliers. The old regulator can be removed by unscrewing the fixing screw, cuttiing the 5 pins with wire cutters. Then using a soldering iron, carefully removing the residual pins from the printed board making sure the print is not damaged.

Use some heatsink compound on the back of the new component, this will help it to dissipate heat more easily, use an additional heatsink if you can, which will help to prolong the life of the new regulator, then tightly secure it in position before carefully soldering the 5 pins.

Check that you have soldered it correctly without any shorted pins or tracks and reassemble the unit. I have repaired dozens of these successfully with exactly this fault.

Mains voltages can be lethal so always remove the power plug before doing any work like this and be sure of your own ability. If you're not confident in tackiling this, get someone to do it. Whatever you do, don't ditch the unit for such an easy to fix fault!

From your user name, I guess you're a radio amateur, so you should be on home territory.........

SOURCE: Recently, i;ve been trying to record tv programs

Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

SOURCE: I have a dmr ex75db

Hello Bill,

VideoPlus+ only works for Analogue channels on the DMR-EX75EB. The Simplest way to record advance programmes (without entering all of the programme information manually using the timer recording feature) is to record from the EPG / GUIDE.

1. Switch on the TV and DVD recorder;
2. Set the TV to the correct INPUT/SOURCE for the DVD recorder;
3. Press the GUIDE button on the DMR-EX75EB remote to open the TV Guide;
4. Use the Up/Down arrows keys to select a channel then the Left/Right arrow keys to select the programme you want to record;
5. Press the ENTER/OK key once . . .

- If you select a programme which has already started, it wont be recorded. It will simply switch the player to viewing that channel. If you want to record a programme which has already started, simply set the player to the correct channel and press the REC key.

- If you select an advance/future programme, the Timer Recording page will open after you press the ENTER/OK key.

6. Press ENTER/OK again to set the timer recording for the programme you selected. The player will return to the TV guide page and a small clock icon will appear next to the programme you selected, indicating that a timer recording has been set.

The instructions above assume that your co-axial cable from your aerial is connected directly to your Panasonic DVD recorder. If your aerial is connected directly to your TV and you're using a SCART EXT output from the TV to the DVD recorder, that's a different kettle of fish.

Hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

BElectric

Lost manual. Cannot get HR A591U JVC VCR program to record a future cable tv program. Seems I have tried everything but it does not record as I set up. It will record an existing show by pressing...


Timer Recording JVC VCR HR A591U
Timer recording can be programmed on-screen with
the remote control. The built-in timer allows automatic
unattended recording of up to 8 programs within 1
month.

EXAMPLE: Program a timer recording for the 26th day,
channel 125 (CATV), 11:00 - 11:30 PM on timer program
number 1 (Tape speed: EP).

When a TV is connected with an audio/video cable, turn the
TV and this VCR on and select the video input mode on the
TV.


• After timer recording is completed, the VCR turns off
automatically.
• You can program the timer recording while a regular
recording is in progress; the menu screens will not be
recorded.
• The timer recording will start at 20 seconds before the time
you predetermined.

Press MENU on the Remote.
Check the “TIMER REC SET”
option is selected, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select one of
the program lines, then press
ENTER.

Press SET –/+ to select the
date, then press ENTER.

Set the start time, end time,
channel and tape speed as in
step 3.
NOTE: To record from external
source, press SET –/+
and set the channel to
"L". "L" will appear next
to CH 125 (or 69).

To enter other programs,
repeat step 2 through 4. Or,
press MENU twice to return
to the normal screen.

Press TIMER on the Remote.
The power will go off, the
TIMER REC indicator ( ) will

Unable to record any BBC channels on tvonics dvr


I had this problem and did 'Menu' then 'Settings' and 'Reset set top box'. This will lose your channels and timers, but the recorded programs will still be there. After I did this I could record again on BBC!

Dvr is programmed but at times "chooses" not to record show and other times it does record


Be sure that a DVR timer is set to fire, instead of an auto tune. Also if it is a series then make sure you select new episodes, your dvr will not recor a program if it has already recorded the same program once, ( re run) you can also check your scehdule in your dvr to check if timer has been deleted or modified.

How to record on vcr/dvd combo I set the timer program to record on the vcr but nothing happen, I can record by hitting the record button, but unable to get the timer to work. I received the vcr/dvd combo...


First make sure the internal clock is setup correctly observing am/pm. Then try recording something so you can watch the operation to see if it works. Make sure you have a tape you can record on and also make sure the write protect tab has not been removed from the front lower corner of the tape. Good Luck! I hope you now have success!

Leaves blank TV screen when Return button operated


It sounds as though the unit is actually recording a DVD, but is getting no incoming signal to record. What is your recording source? Satellite and receiver? Antenna? Cable box? In the set-up menu, be sure you have chosen the proper input source; i.e., recording from where? You may be able to access that menu through the Function button on the remote, AFter setting that menu, be sure to press Return to restore the recorder to the ready mode. If you are using the RF input for recording, be sure that is selected as well, as opposed to L1 or L2. The input channel must match the output channel on your receiver, usually channel 3 or four. What is the model number?

Magnavox TV/VCR COMBO


Im thinking that maybe you a have a timer recording set. The whole unit wont function at all if you turn it on via power button (remote or unit). There should be a button at the top of the remote called 'timer set' pressing this will disable that mode and allow complete use of everything. but make sure u press timer set again when powering down, otherwise simply turning off the machine will leave the timer recording disabled.

Channel stuck and can't record shows the same night


Your two problems are related - the DVD player lost contact with the local PBS channel, which altered its internal clock.

Add a red, white and yellow cable from one of the outs on the back of the cable box to the slot marked AV1 IN on the back of the Philips. Then redo the channel programming - press the System Menu button and change Tuning Band to CATV - it will then ask you if you want to do an Auto Channel Set - say Yes.

Once it is done with the channel programming, turn the DVD player to whatever channel PBS is on in your area's cable service. Then go back to System Menu - select Clock Set and go to Auto. Alternatively, you can select Manual under Clock Set and change the date by hand).

Good luck!

Programming my mitsubishi remote


If the remote is specific for your model of Mits (or a range of Mits models) it should be able to do every function including time/date/timer record. If by chance this is a universal remote box (it doesn't look so by the part number you supplied), many such boxes- especially lower cost ones, may not be able to do those advanced functions. Your remote box should have a menu button which will allow you to access all the setup areas. One site shows your remote http://www.replacementremotes.com/store/prodthumbs.cfm?sr=101&CATEGORYID=289 and there is a menu button on it. It is possible the remote box has a problem (well used boxes can have buttons which fail to work, or are difficult to activate. Did you purchase these new, or used? If used, then perhaps a dead or difficult button is a fair possibility. If this is the problem, sometimes this can be fixed or improved by taking the box apart and cleaning the button pad and matching contact surfaces on the circuit board.
