Question about Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD Recorder
I recently inserted a finalized DVD-R disc into my Panasonic DMR-E80HP DVD recorder, but it got stuck on "read" and wouldn't eject. I tried shutting the power off and pressing the eject button, and while that usually works, this time it got stuck in "recover" mode. Is there a way I can eject this disc without taking the machine to a repair shop?
I have a panasonic DMR E-60 and had the same problem. What I did was remove 2 side screws and 3 rear screws and lifted top cover off. Then if you are facing the front of the unit to the right of cd unit there is a little nipple that locks the mechanism. Push that in, which would be to the left if your facing the front of the unit. Then press the eject button. Mind you it must be plugged in to power. Be careful not to touch any of the green boards or metal. Hope I was clear. I sent it to panasonic but they wanted 40. just to look at it and up to 140.00 to fix it.

Look on the face of the machine, near the dvd slot. what you are looking for is a tiny hole, the size of a pencil lead. some players, not all, have this manual release. If you are fortunate enough to have one of these little holes straighten out a small paper clip and use it as a wire to insert in the hole and release your dvd.

Djwil721 's solution worked for me. Thanks so much for your help.
Open it up and push that little button, flip open the door and pull out the disc. Turn off the unit and let it recycle. You might have to unplug it for a minute. When it read "NO DISC", you are golden.
Thanks again to djwil721 .
