Hi,

Initially, pls try:
  • as others have posted, cleans the lens;
  • you could also try cleaning the inside particularly the guide rail/slider bar (encircled in dotted yellow) as shown in below image.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Post/comment back any updates/development. Appreciate your use of Fixya and good luck.

Panasonic DMR-EZ48V Dvd unit said disc was scratched/dusty - so would not record. Tried a newly opened DVD disc - same problem. Tried a pre-recorded DVD that had previously been played on this machine...


I would suggest since this is just out of warranty/guarantee as you say, try a DVD laser lens cleaner (these look like DVDs but they are for shifting surface dust off the laser lens in these drives (without the need for you to worry about opening them up). If the recorder suggests dirty discs, the laser probably has a speck of dust on it - you cannot see this speck, but the device can.

Do not use CD/DVD lens cleaner discs - those are supermarket products designed for CD/DVD players, not recorders or DVD-ROM drives in a PC. I recommend a true DVD lens cleaner kit - you may be able to obtain this through Panasonic or similar electrical outlets (like where you originally purchased the combo). These 'specific cleaners' are cheap, but unlike CD/DVD cleaners, these will not damage your unit.

Hopefully it is nothing more than a bit of stubborn dirt stuck on the lens inside the drive or anything more serious.

Returns error message :Unknown Disc. Please Check Disc Again" The DVD disc plays on other DVD players with no problem.


Problem may be reset needed, or lens need cleaning, or dvd recoreder worn out. Reset is pull the plug from the wall for 5 minutes. Turn it back on after reset to load firmware again, may work after that.. TDK makes lens cleaner. LG uses fan so, dirt can get into dvd recorder lens. If the tray moves out wiggly, laser assembly may move wiggly too. Replace dvd recorder which is a dvd+-rw regular ide unit from computers.

Hello, Dustin / unsupported discs issue


Hi Brad

Before you attempt to purchase a new lens or a new unit, i would suggest that you buy a "Len Cleaner Disc" to clean your lens, if that doesn't help then you should either repair or buy a new lens.

To repair or install a new lens, you will need a service manual(Let me know if you need one.) Then you can do it yourself.

Please also remember that if you attempt to open or repair the player in anyway, it will void your warranty so i think you should take it to Panasonic and have the unit replaced or refunded.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa if it helps you.

Kind regards
