Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

High pitched noise regardless of power on/off

Panasonic DMR-E85H recorder with hard drive is emitting a high pitched noise, even when shut off (that's how I noticed it). Noise ceases when unplugged. Is my power supply going bad?

Hello... I would say that your power supply is going bad. But it does sound like the little muffin fan in the unit is.

New hard drive


I would put in the same hard drive capacity especially on a ten year old machine, because the power supply could affect the capacitors on the motherboard and cause a short. Samsung hard drives work best with Panasonic hdd recorders.

My dvd recorder dmr e85 h panasonic dont rec dont play movies and dont acces to hard drive what is the problem


A DVD Recorder needs to play before it can record. Not accessing the hard drive as well indicates a problem with the power supply inside, more than likely. Time for a reputable repair shop.

Pan. dmr-e85h turned itself on, self-check


Open case and look for failed capacitors, which are cylindrical and will have a bulging top and a yellow/gold substance leaking out. If this is the problem, search for previous solutions that mention "solder capacitor C1260" for the DMR-E85. I had a similar 'no power' problem with my DMR-E55 and my son and I were able to fix it Sunday. Not hard to do and mine is working again!

Panasonic DMR-E85H


No VCR required - A VCR is a video cassette recorder, which requires a video cassette in order to record source material. A DVD recorder, requires DVD discs and this model in particular has a built in hard drive so you don't even need discs either, unless you plan to share recordings with others. All you need is a 'feed' / 'source' from an external aerial like Cable or Sky etc.
Does that help?
