I had a rough time too until I realized that it will only work with a fully charged battery in the unit. Did yours come with the software disc and could you email the files to me? Thanks hope it works for you.

My Panasonic DMR E S45V just stopped working. The Error message is F04. The DVD door won;t open, the VHS door won;t close.

Check the servo unit to see if the actuator is changing modes when press the buttons. If one door is open the other will not function either.

Portable DVD player won't recognize door is closed.

My guess would be that the switch inside that the tray hits to tell the dvd player it's closed is broken.

I am facing problem in my Panasonic Camcorder VDR M53 model. It is not sensing any DVD either new or used ones. Can you let me know what can I do to resolve this?

I would try very carefully cleaning the read/write lense with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. If that does not fix it, you will probably need to have it serviced.

Disc won't eject

I have the same issue. If you gently pull on the dvd door while trying to eject it should open for you. More of a workaround than a fix.

I need a way to hook the camcorder to PC

If you will look at the front of the camera (where the lens is), you will see a gray door that opens. If you will look in there you will find: USB port, AV outlet and external microphone jack.
Hope that help you out...
