I have the "please wait" error on my DMR-E85H. I replaced capicators c1270 & c1271. Upon turning the unit on the c1271 cap blew up.Any Idea as to what I might have done wrong or what the problem might be?Paul
Capacitor blow up if its polarity in circuit is incorrect or its working voltage is lower then volts in circuit. Polarity= capacitor has 2 pins and usually one is marked with Negative mark ( - ) Working volts= each capacitor has 2 details, one is its capacity and other is operating volts range. for example 100MF/UF 25Volt...100MF is its capacity and 25V is its working volts limit and must not be used in circuit having above volts. In your case 2 possibilities, either capacitor was put in opposite polarity in circuit or its working volts are less then old capacitor.
Please wait error comes in DVD players when sled motor of optical lens does not work, please slide optical lens 2-3 times by holding its sides with fingers. Do not forget to unplug unit before doing so. Thanks.

I had same problem - No Power/No Display. I replaced two bad capacitors on the power supply
card. See http://vassfamily.net/projects/DMRE85H/dmre85h.html The
capacitors I replaced were C1260 and C1261 slightly different from the
one on "vassfamily.net". Everything works now for me...
If replacing the capacitors doesn't work, try replacing PSU Regulator - STRG6353.
for those interested, I found the "commands" listed on
http://www.dxcc.com/dmr-e85h.htm useful when operating the DMR-e85h to
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
The problem ( the display has R68:33 on it) turned out to be what I had suspected, the TVGOS could not find a signal. The error code went away when the DVR had searched for the signal even though it could not find one. Cox cable discontinued the TVGOS signal so I don't get TV Guide, that is the way it is.
Thanks to all that contributed to the articles on how to fix the PLEASE WAIT problem by replacing C1270 & C1271, you saved my DVR
This is a hard drive that is dying and is expensive to fix, and not worthwhile in my opinion. Mine packed in with a disc stuck in the disc drive. It was difficult to retrieve. If you have no disc trapped in the tray, I would suggest dismantling anyway and removing the hard drive if you have a load of unwatched content recorded. You can buy a cable to hook it up to a PC - Although I have not done this yet.
DMR-E85H - Rest In Peace.
