Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

The display has R68:33 on it.

I contacted Panasonic about the "PLEASE WAIT" on display and after a few attempts to fix I was told that it would cost $130 minimum to repair.Then I found you guys and found I had the same problem that RandyChev described "PLEASE WAIT" on display. I followed his very precise and informative directions and found that I also had two bad (bulging) caps, C1270 & C1271 Thanks to the pictures he posted, I replaced them with no problems. I then was able to power it back up and all of my information was still on my hard drive, even the correct time in the display.
The only thing that I have that I don't know what it means is with the unit on the display has R68:33 on it.
I have Cox cable and they discontinued the TVGOS so I know I won't get TV Guide, is that what the R68:33 is about??

The problem ( the display has R68:33 on it) turned out to be what I had suspected, the TVGOS could not find a signal. The error code went away when the DVR had searched for the signal even though it could not find one. Cox cable discontinued the TVGOS signal so I don't get TV Guide, that is the way it is.
Again
Thanks to all that contributed to the articles on how to fix the PLEASE WAIT problem by replacing C1270 & C1271, you saved my DVR

It sounds that there is some loose contacts to some connections to your Plasma display.

PLEASE WAIT


I contacted Panasonic about the "PLEASE WAIT" on display and after a few attempts to fix I was told that it would cost $130 minimum to repair.Then I found I had the same problem that hpwhite & RandyChev described "PLEASE WAIT" on display. I followed their very precise and informative directions and found that I also had two bad (bulging) caps, C1270 & C1271 Thanks to the pictures he posted, I was able to find replacement 1000uf 35v Radio Shack #272-1032 capacitors and replaced them with no problems. I then was able to power it back up and all of my information was still on my hard drive, even the correct time in the display. If you can find RandyChev's description with the pictures, it is very easy to understand

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

Let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

If you do indeed have a problem, Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

IT say Please Wait


I had the same problem a few months ago - the fix was what gorickhoward mentioned. Two capacitors from radio shack and a $6 soldering kit made it better than new.
