The bad capacitor problem was on the earlier power supply boards. The following link is to the solution for this http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display The later power boards have a voltage regulator problem and the fix for this is at http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 You will notice from the photos that the early and later boards look different so it is easy to see which one you have. I replaced the voltage regulator in my machine and it now works like new.

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

DVD recorder dubbing/playing problems


your disc reader is dirty and needs cleaned..this can be done 2 ways.. one is to buy a can of electronic dusting spray, use the wand attatched to the nozzle .. stick the wand into the dvd slot and spray short bursts into the center area of the slot( dvds record and play from the center-out) the other is to find the screws that hold the cover on the unit(usually phillips head) and remove them..carefully remove the entire cover exposing the inner works of the recorder, again using the duter spray, clean the entire inside of the unit..paying close attention to the lens area of the reader..make sure not to blast it too hard and loosen the base..just enough to dust it off..then replace the cover and run the unit normally.. these units are quickly showing up at resale shops everywhere as folks are getting new digital recorders that record to a hard drive..so you may find a replacement there..I have several..

Dmr-ex85 shows u81 code and is not functioning at all, says please wait but eventually just goes onto error code. no buttons will function?


Physically unplug power from the unit for a minute or two.
Connect power cord to unit and Simultaneously Press & Hold
both the [STOP] and Channel UP [^] for 5 seconds. This will
force Eject the DVD tray. Remove any disc if present.
Cycle the power again if necessary and wait for the unit to
go through its self check cycle. If after several attempts, and
you continue to get this error, then your Ram drive may need
to be replaced.

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.

Hard drive out, can't start up with new one


I know this is an old post but I wanted to share my success with others. I have been successful in changing the hard drive in my Panasonic DMR-EH55. It was very easy once I had the firmware disc which I downloaded from Panasonic's website yesterday. Had been looking for months for a way to do it and finally it came through. The firmware disc image is just over 7MB and the file is named dmreh55_up317.zip - I downloaded it from panasonic's website at http://www.panasonic.ca/pdp/software/dmreh55_up317.zip

I hope this helps out as it did for me.

Try resetting the unit. Push and hold the on/off button for 10+ seconds. --or-- Look for a reset button behind the drop down door, and gently depress it with a pen point for a couple of seconds. If this does not work, try calling Panasonic.

DVD stuck in panasonic DVD recorder


I just had the same problem today. Put a dvd in and then it would not open. I found a couple of answers and did not work. I am at a business so I figured we would just replace it. Opened it up
and removed 8 screws and 2 plugs. Put a small screwdriver under the round metal piece on the top and lifted it up carefully. Used a par of needle nose pliers to pull the dvd out (carefully). Put it back
together and it is now working.

I saw answers from the hard drive is bad to it is not something that can be fixed.


Thanks
