It is very likely that a fuse has blown inside the unit. If you have warranty on the device you should get the manufacturer to replace it. However if it's out of warranty and your not afraid to open up the case of a DVD player you should be able to unplug the unit. Remove the screws and then look for a small glass type fuse located on the main board of the DVD player. It will have two tin ends and a glass tube in the middle. Remove it with a small pair of pliers being careful not crush the glass tube. Replace it with the same type of fuse with the correct voltage and amperage.

This morning while trying to copy from vhs to dvd I kept getting an on screen message OTR Pause....record. What is OTR as the tape did not copy this is model DRC832ON


OTR is one-touch recording on most of my VCR/DVD burners where you set the length of time to record from the tv. In my manual it is the Express Record feature. Press the REC button several times to advance the record time by 30 minutes. In your case it might refer to On Timed Record.

Use the COPY button on the front of the unit when the tape you want to record is in the VCR and a blank DVD is in the DVD tray. If you have the A/B Edits set, only the A/B editted sections will copy. (Copy protected tapes and DVDs can't be copied.) (Or the timed transfer described below)

Copying DVDs to VCR tapes can be done in a timed record mode. You can either use Menu > Disc > Copy Disc then press OK or Menu > Timers > Set Transfer and press OK. Then press Info to name the timed event followed by Done and OK, if desired. Press OK to highlight Copy From/To and make sure to select the correct source and destination and press OK. Next set the day and time that you want the transfer to take place (a couple of steps, press OK between them and when done). Then adjust the quality if needed and press OK. Finally highlight Keep Timer and press OK again. Make sure the correct tape and DVD are in place for the timed event.

Depending on what you set the unit for, I'd look for signs of power failures (which mess up most timed record functions). Then I'd double-check the time you set it to transfer and the A/B edits function. (A/B edits lets you grab small clips from an Indexed tape. Either index the tape by playing it and pressing the Insert A/B edit button (on the VCR/DVD, possibly on the remote) or delete A/B edits.)

I hope this helps.

Panasonic DMR EH75V - no channel guide after power went out


since there was power failure , the settings( channel guide) that u had programmed has got earsed completly & u will have to reprogram (memorise)them
this has happened because there is a small capacitor(looks like a small battery) which keeps the memory has lost its charge & needs to be replaced.its job is to store the details in case of power failure!!!

DMRES10 does not power up, caught in an electrical storm


Do not take it in a service center, buy the newest release "EZ" series. "EZ" series has a digital receiver built into it, which is called an "ACCU-Tune". The receiver will swith to analog if the digital skips a beat in reception. The cost to repair your's will be a flat rate of $269.00 at Panasonic's main repair shop. For the above repair, invest in EZ and get extended warranty. My ES10 will not power up, I found a capacitor split on top in the power supply area.

It sounds like you got the old electrical surge blowout going on there bud. It could be as simple as a bad regulator transistor or IC. the onlt real way to tell is to troubleshoot this unit by getting a service manual and a meter and checking your standby and switched power supply. Now since this is a recorder maybe it is wort a look at by your local repair depot or is there any warrantee left on it at as my book says it has a 1 year warrantee but just dont volenter any info how it went out if ya get my drift. Good Luck
