Re: recorder self-check... after inserting a disc.
Inserting a disk OTHER than Panasonic will cause a system crash. I'm betting Panasonic has code that causes this so you don't use cheaper generic DVDs. I now have to mail order the Panasonic DVDs (since nobody carries them) and have never had a crash since!

First clean the laser head with a Qtip and alcohol. It gotta be
perfectly clean, so wipe with fresh brand name qtip and make sure there
is not a single dust particle on it. You gotta remove the cabinet with
star screwdriver. Your beam might be tired. First try with the clean up! Unplugg before opening!
You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.
This can usually be down to two things, a faulty PSU board which is going to be expensive and needs to be professionally repaired, or simply a faulty or dirty DVD has been inserted into the machine.
Try the following: 1. Hold down Standby and Eject buttons on front panel together for 60 seconds (until the recorder goes into standby mode).
2. Now hold down Eject button until it ejects the disc.
3. Now insert a different DVD disc and see if that cures the problem.
If that fails then it's probably a faulty PSU, and unless the recorder is under guarantee or warranty it will be too costly to repair.
Manually pull down the front shield, then somewhat forcefully pull down the inner shield and maybe two little white pins so the tray is exposed with nothing blocking it. Have someone plug the machine in while you are holding everything out of the way and the tray should start to open. Pull your fingers out quickly so you don't block the tray from sliding out.
You can try a factory reset (reboot).Here are the steps..
The following will set your recorder to the Factory defaults. (Will not format HD on DMRE80).
With power off (stand-by mode/CLOCK DISPLAY SHOWING):
1)Press and hold [skip reverse] [Time Slip] [Eject] buttons for about 10 sec 2)Display will show 'L1 TEST' 3)Now power off DURING TEST 4)Clock should be fashing 12:00 5)Turn power on and language menu will be displayed on TV
Use for DMRE50 DMRE55 DMRE85 For the DMRE75V press both [dub] buttons and [eject].
