Hi - My PANASONIC DMR-ES15 has worked like a jewel until about an hour ago. I'm having surgery tomorrow & was preparing for my recuperation. I disconnected my VCR (to move it to my bedroom) & then put in a DVD+RW (I've always used DVD Rams but wanted to start with a fresh disc & the store was out of DVD-Rams) & now suddenly it won't recognize ANY discs - not a commercial DVD or any of the DVD-Rams I've been using for months & which worked GREAT up til now. HELP ! I don't know how I'll make it through my recuperation without being able to record my shows & watch DVDs! Thanks so much!

With a soft cloth, clean the 'hole' area of a DVD that you know worked in the past. Sometimes oils from our fingers get on the disc and then the disk can't spin properly. If the problem persists, open the case and look for two failed capacitors. (See similar solutions on this website.)
The DMR-ES15 is a later model (around 2006/07) than the DMR-E50 (2003/04), but essentially both should do the same job so technically - a good equivalent in terms of recording and same brand so yes. The connections on the rear (of the replacement recorder) should suit and work with your other devices just as the old one did.
According to some other online reviews, the DMR-E50 has had a few issues with recording, and finalizing certain discs.
I'd say go for it - accept the replacement - as long as it comes with some kind of guarantee, works fully and has all the accessories (including remote, instructions etc.) you should be good. Contact the store and seal the deal.
