Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder
Disk drive will not open. Have power
Use a paper clip, straightened out. There is a small pin-head sized hole at the right side of the tray. Insert one end and push gently but firmly when you hit the end but its movable. That is the release/unlock lever. By pushing in it releases the lock such that the tray can be manually pulled out to remove the damaged disc. If its a broken CD/DVD if all pieces don't come out you may have to remove the cover. After check if the motor runs. If OK then try another DVD. If motor is unable to spin the disk, then the motor will have to be replaced.............................................sodeep

It is common problem with this DVD. It won't start, just perform endless SELF CHECK, and when trying to read the disc, power just drops down, and game starting over and over...
In my case, and i believe that is the same thing in all those Panasonics, problem was increased resistance of R 003, located around STRG 6353. Voltage developed at this resistor, serves as overload information for security purposes. i just added another 1.5 Ohm resistor in parallel with existing 0,47 Ohm (R003). After that, recorder works fine.
