Question about Panasonic PV-DF2003 Triple Play 20 in. TV/DVD Combo
When trying to play a dvd the message This type of dvd cannot be played is displayed on the screen even when the dvd is a playable dvd. Sometimes if I keep trying to load the dvd it will finally accept it and play it. Sometimes while playing it stops playing then starts again through-out the movie. Sometimes it stops play and then a message tells me the dvd could be dirty or scratched. This would all be normal except it does it all the time now no matter what dvd is being played.

SOURCE: Plays CDs but not DVDs
Melisha, I had a similiar problem. Go into the onscreen menu with the remote using the "ACTION" button on the bottom left of the remote. Using the arrow keys in the center of the remote, move to the menu for the audio processing. It will have menu items for DTS, Dolby Digital etc. Change the menu parameters for the "Down conversion" to "yes", get out of the menu mode and see if your DVD works again. If not, make sure there is no DVD or CD in the player, and press the "open/close", "pause" and the double left pointing arrow buttons all at the same time for about 5 seconds until the display on the DVD player says "INITIALIZE". This resets your machine. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: DVD player
Follow-up to Aug 04 response: I spent a few hours today tearing mine apart (3 times, once for a **** mistake of not reconnecting all wires). I verified unit spins with a dvd, checking the position when open/closing. Tore off back case and retore dvd player out of unit, took time to fully take off case and gently clean laser lens, reconnecting dvd to frame, and checking it out with several discs (TIP: If you do this, tape open the vcr door so it will catch when you put on the cover, otherwise will not open auto when ejecting). I now believe the problem is at the component level or laser is out of alignment, both mean it is not efficient to repair. Also, I just saw on e-bay SEVERAL units of the same model being sold for .99-$49.99 because of the dvd not working. I may try contacting Panasonic and try to purchase the whole dvd unit to replace if reasonably priced.

Same here! It would say something along the lines of "this type of disc cannot be played. please insert a different disc." it's the appropriate dvd region, i've tried all types of dvds, and it still won't work. the vhs and cd still works, it's just the dvd player that won't.

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. 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 same problem and has the later ps board. The voltage regulator replacement worked perfectly.
