Dear Kjwj,


Maybe the player laser lens is dusty. You can try cleaning it with a CD/DVD lenses cleaner disc, like the one shown in the link below:

http://www.amazon.com/Memorex-32020029479-DVD-Lens-Cleaning/dp/B00008EM7U

I cannot provide info regarding the service mode codes because no information regarding the DVD player (brand and model) was provided.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel Luiz Martins

SOURCE: recorded dvds wont play in other dvd players

You have to finalize the disc. if the disc goes to the end it will finalize the disc automatically. If there is some part of the disc not used you have to do it yourself. IN DVD MODE PRESS SETUP, THEN DISC EDIT, THEN FINALIZE. FINALLY PRESS YES. That should do it.

SOURCE: My DMR-E80H will no longer record onto blank DVDs

One solution is to clean the laser lens. Try using one of those lens cleaning CDs.

Also, sometimes the DVD may slip on the spindle, which may cause reading errors. Spindle cleaning usually involves taking the machine apart.

SOURCE: Since it went into "disk recovery mode" it now will not play dvds

Got the same problem. Happened 2 months after guarantee expired. **** machine. The only good thing is the harddrive and that is made by HITACHI not Panasonic! I go Sony next time. Panasonic quoted £200 plus to fix the problem. I only paid £220 when I bought it new.

My DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks


I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)

What kind of blank dvds can i use


DVD-R and DVD+R should play once recorded and finalized. RW of any kind is iffy and must be tested to see if they will work.
I don't think any dual layer DVDs will work, but I could be wrong. If you're taking about recording DVDs on this, it's not a DVD recorder as far as I know.

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I


Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

I 'Finalized' the DVD but cannot play on another player


Does the machine record on to + or - DVDR?
If it does both try each type. Also try high quality discs, some of the cheaper types won't work. Try it on different speeds too.

Why can't l play DVD's recorded on this recorder on other player


DVDs come in different versions.
Try using the -R DVDs. Once your DVD recorder finalizes the DVDs they should on any DVD palyer.

Check your manual to find out the finalizing method for your DVD recorder.

I hope this solution is helpful. Let me know.

Samsung DVD-V$357 recorded dvds won't play on other machines


Did you finalize the disk? If not, this should solve your problem. When the disk is finalized you should be able to play it on your computer if you can play other DVDs on it. Some other DVD players can only play specific disks (i.e. DVD-R, DVD+R). This may be another problem.
