Question about Televison & Video
Suddenly I can not play home recorded, non finalized DVDs or record on blank ones. Machine does however play pre-recorded DVDs. I can not figure out how to put in service mode to see if I can fix it. Any suggestions?
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:
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!

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.

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.

Testimonial: "Not sure where I first saw the suggestion about cleaning the laser lens, but I bought a $20 cleaning disc and suddenly it worked again. Thanks!"
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.
