Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Panasonic DMR-E85Hp dvd won't turn on now.

Had been using it. Turn it off with the remote. The machine turn off like normal, then started up again. After several repeated attempts to turn it off, including the power button on the set it self, I pull the plug. Now it shows no power at all when plugged back in. I was getting a "Please Wait" message in the display and the DVR kept cycling on and off. I finally unplugged it. When I tried to plug it back in again there was no display at all. Anyone got an answer for this yet?

The power supply board on the DMR-E85H has problems. The earlier boards suffered from leaking capacitors and the later boards from voltage regulator problems. If your machine is now dead, the fuse on the power supply board has also blown.Go to the following links for details and photos on how to fix:Replacing capacitors:http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_displayReplacing the voltage regulator:http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0Hope this helps. My machine had the later ps board and the voltage regulator replacement worked perfectly.

SOURCE: PANASONIC DVD RECORDER DMR-E85HP

My Panasonic DMR-E85H also had the frozen "Please Wait" problem.I found this site and followed the instructions regarding replacement of the C1270 and C1271 capacitors with Radio Shack 1000uF 35V radial-lead capacitors (model 272-1032) @ $1.59 each. Took about 30 minutes plus the time to get the parts. Keep in mind that my husband and I have never done anything like this before. We followed all the posted instructions and the our Panasonic DMR-E85H works great now. Many thanks to everyone who posted these solutions and especially RandyChev for the great pictures. - What a life saver.

Not sure about yours, but many will reset by: turn key to "on" and wait 15 minutes or so; shut off, then try to start.

DVD stuck on Panasonic DMR ES10 in eternal cycle of "self check"/"please wait"


My DMR ES10 was eternally in a "self check"/"please wait" cycle. Couldn't even turn it off normally. By pressing the "Power off" for 10 seconds it will turn off forcefully. Now, after it says "BYE" press the "CH UP" (on the recorder, NOT on the remote))+"STOP" (with the recorder turned off) for another 10 seconds. This will force the opening and we now can take the DVD off. Turn the DVD recorder ON and, if the problem is on the laser, because of dirt, etc it will work and we can now run a DVD cleaner. In this case, the machine was stuck just because the first thing it does is check the DVD inside, and because it can't and just keep trying, it will never do anything else, until we take the DVD off with it turned off.

Probably because you don't normally turn it off.
It got confused.
I turn my phone off about once a week - it gradually loses battery longevity because of whatever processes started running.

How do u program. With and withoit codes


Manually:

To enter the code into the remote, turn on the device you want to add. Point the remote control at the device and hold the "Code Search" button until the LED light is solid red. Press the button for the device you want to set, such as "TV" or "DVD." The light will blink once and then stay solid red. Use the number buttons on the remote to enter the first code associated with your device. Once the code is inserted, the LED light will turn off. Point the remote at the device and press the "On/Off" button. If the device turns off, the code is correct. If the device does not turn off, repeat the preceding steps using the next code on the list.

No Code:

To use the code search, turn on the device you want to set. Point the remote at the device and hold the "Code Search" button until the LED is solid red. Press the corresponding button for the device you wish to set, such as "TV" or "DVD." With the remote pointed at the device, repeatedly press the "On/Off" button. Continue to do this until the device powers off. When it shuts off, press the "Enter" button to set the remote control. Use the "On/Off" button and see if the device turns on again. If it does, the setting is complete. If it does not, attempt the code search again and be sure to press the "Enter" button quickly when the device turns off.

Panasonic DMR-EX768 displays message EXT-L and wont let me access the guide menu or record anything. Can anyone help please.


Hopefully you will have figured this out by now but you have accidentally turned on the external link function (used to automatically record from a sky box or similar) - simply press the ext-l button on the remote (second row from the bottom of the remote, 3rd button from left) to turn it off again and everything will work normally once more.
