    Have a similar problem with the unit switching off.

    Nothing seems to make it come on again.

    Then after hours, it randomly turns on.

    But it can go off again at any time, epecially if any DVD function is used.

Not sure if this will help, but mine acted up similarly before it went with a message of "Please Wait" on the display at all times. Searched the web, found out two capacitors needed to be replaced. My brother was able to easily solder the parts in a very short time. Google the name and model number with the words Please Wait and you can see how many folks have had this problem. Your machine may be on its way to this problem.

I have good friends that got their machine at the same time. Same thing happened to them within one month of me telling them about it. Our machines are about 4 years old as well.

Another big problem. I then got a U99 Error Code. Completly frozen machine. From my researcy I may have caused the problem by storing too much on hard drive. Once you transfer video, get it off the hard drive. They say mine can not be fixed. Problem is, they do not make them anymore. No hard drives for recording or dubbing DVDs.

Why won't dmr e85h pick up all the digital channels the tv attached to it will? Is it outdated technology? Do you need a digital set top box or completely replace the unit? Anyone...?


You most likely will need a set top box connected to this recorder in order to receive digital channels, Assuming the DVD recorder works besides this detail, you should not need to replace the unit. Only replace it if it DOESN'T work.

The DMR-E85H is a 2005 model so it is more than 5 years old.

My DMR-E85H has been showing ''PLEASE WAIT'' for days now! It does not come on to record or play back


I just repaired this unit with the replacement filtering capacitors. This is a widely known problem. Hope this helps.

There is an article that addresses this very error and it has to do with the power supply filtering capacitors. I just repaired a unit and the fellow that brought into me said this a widely known problem. I replaced three of the capacitors ... two had leaked and the last one was bulging. Works fine now.

If you have questions or would like your unit repaired send me a note.

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!

My dmr e85h display "hold" for 5 sec and turn off


The power supply board on the DMR-E85H has problems. The earlier boards suffered from leaking capacitors and the later boards from voltage regulator problems. If your machine is now dead, the fuse on the power supply board has also blown.Go to the following links for details and photos on how to fix: Replacing capacitors:http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display Replacing the voltage regulator:http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 Hope this helps. My machine had the later ps board and the voltage regulator replacement worked perfectly.

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.

Dmr e85 will not start up


Hi Audi,
Try unplugging the hdd & then turn on the dvd recorder & wait for about 5 minutes.
Then unplug the dvd recorder & plug in the hdd & turn back on the dvd recorder to see if that fixes the problem.
