Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

Open Question

Panasonic dmr-e50 won't read any disc.

I had it for a few years, working and recording any blank media without problems. No it doesn't read any discs, including new movies.
II've cleaned the spindle and laser but no go.
I was told the "eye laser" is probably bad.

Where can I find an "eye laser" componenet? would it be practical to install? and would it be affordable or not?

thanks for the replies in advance.

SOURCE: my panasonic DMR-ES 15 cannot read anymore!

There maybe a problem with the optic lens (dirt) try to clean it very gently with cotton, also the motor plate that holds the cd/dvd is not holding it very well so it not rotates at proper speed try to clean the both sides where the hole of the cd/dvd is when it´s inserted, if you think that you migth not have skills for that don´t do it.

Hope it help

My Panasonic DMR-E50 wont read anything ....


hi there,
there could be a few reasons for this, but the most likely is that the laser has gone in it, ie... not reading any discs. it could also just be a loose cable or connector inside the recorder. the only way to know for sure is to open it up and see i'm afraid :( if its the laser, you will have to get it replaced i'm afraid. Hope this helps

The dvd recorder has stopped recognising dvds that previously it would play quite happily. Is the likely cause a dirty lens or is it more likely to be something to do with the spindle? I get the "cannot...


I presume you hade cleaned the discs and the players optical lense before posting this request and also tried them on another player?

Basicaly If they do not work on other players then the discs have now failed for some reason: many budget priced discs I have come across only work for a few years.

If you have a 'spindle problem' then your laser is probably slowly moving off track. If so you should be able to record and then playback on a GOOD disc for a while.

Reads a new disc,but after a few uses will not read.


First try cleaning the heads with a kit that may be obtained at many discount stores. If that doesn;t work, It really sound like a drive head alignment problem. Not a service preformed w/o equiptment.

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.

Panasonic dmr es10


Some DVD recorders don't like certain types of media. Does this happen with all blank dvd+rw disks or just with that specific brand? If it's that brand then you should just use a different one.

Panasonic DVD problems


sorry to say but both of these sound like loader problems.ie the optics are faulty,you have to replace the full assy called a loader assy when this happens.Panasonic are the only company who offer part exchange tru authorised dealers.ie send back the faulty one and they will give reduced price on new one,.As to other makes see a lot of sonys with optic problems as well so isint just a panasonic problem.You could also try using ordinary dvdrs instead of ram discs as the optic has to work harder when recording and playing ram disc due to information contained.Hope I helped!
