The Self Check procedure is like the POST on a computer: upon starting the processor makes a simple test of all the hardware components. If it fails then the defect is very important : a critical part situated on the mainboard has failed and it stops the loading of the firmware . Since all parts are glued then the mainboard will have to be replaced. This will be so expensive that it's going to be cheaper to just buy a new recorder.
You can try a factory reset (reboot).Here are the steps..
The following will set your recorder to the Factory defaults. (Will not format HD on DMRE80).
With power off (stand-by mode/CLOCK DISPLAY SHOWING):
1)Press and hold [skip reverse] [Time Slip] [Eject] buttons for about 10 sec 2)Display will show 'L1 TEST' 3)Now power off DURING TEST 4)Clock should be fashing 12:00 5)Turn power on and language menu will be displayed on TV
Use for DMRE50 DMRE55 DMRE85 For the DMRE75V press both [dub] buttons and [eject].
This seems to be a common problem with the E55 and E85 models, could be one of two things, either the RAM Drive or the Power control ic (STRG6353 primary side of PSU), i would suspect its the latter. You'll need an engineer to replace this component.
Try unplugging the hdd & then turn on the dvd recorder & wait for about 5 minutes.
Then unplug the dvd recorder & plug in the hdd & turn back on the dvd recorder to see if that fixes the problem.
