    no copyright protection is not the case here. Before I got no CODES today I tried using a RWriitable disc and got codes U88 and then U61 and now my disc drawer is stuck open after it's the self-diagnostics kicked in??? It's about 8yr old..probably a spindle problem..after cleaning it using a disc.

You must replace the inside "str" sheet feeding and condenser close. Everything back to normal. :-)

SOURCE: DMR-E85H works fine after replacing IC but ......

Quite many possibilities. Since you replaced the IC, I'd figure you have a little understanding of electronics and ESD procedures. You now need to troubleshoot the driver for the display. Do a little research with your DVM... make sure the display is getting V. Should the unit be a uP type system, you are probably looking at the uP display driver circuitry [all in one] being bad and no way around the replacement should you desire a display. Should the unit be slightly older, you may get lucky with finding a cap or transistor problem for the driver. Moreso trans than cap.

Wish it were here.. always easier to take a peak and find the problem when it is in front of me.

A DVD Recorder needs to play before it can record. Not accessing the hard drive as well indicates a problem with the power supply inside, more than likely. Time for a reputable repair shop.

I have a Panasonic DVD Video Recorder model DMR-E85H manufactured in 2004. It has worked perfectly for all these years but now won't power up at all. I have checked the only fuse I could find inside...


The power supply board is the problem, one of the most common failure is the 1000uf capacitor "open" located near the power transistor that is heat sinked, value may be higher or lower with one or two caps, the second possibility is the power transistor may be open or shorted.

Pan. dmr-e85h turned itself on, self-check


Open case and look for failed capacitors, which are cylindrical and will have a bulging top and a yellow/gold substance leaking out. If this is the problem, search for previous solutions that mention "solder capacitor C1260" for the DMR-E85. I had a similar 'no power' problem with my DMR-E55 and my son and I were able to fix it Sunday. Not hard to do and mine is working again!

High pitched noise regardless of power on/off


Hello... I would say that your power supply is going bad. But it does sound like the little muffin fan in the unit is.

Frozen on the Please Wait


This is a hard drive failure and is expensive to fix, and not worthwhile in my opinion.  Mine packed in with a disc stuck in the disc drive. It was difficult to retrieve. If you have no disc trapped in the tray, I would suggest dismantling anyway and removing the hard drive if you have a load of unwatched content recorded. You can buy a cable to hook it up to a PC - Although I have not done this yet.
