Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder
My player is stuck in self check mode and will not allow me to open the disc drawer to remove a disc
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
For the DMRE75V press both [dub] buttons and [eject].
Hope this helps.

I have had the same problem with "Self Check" and no other functions operating, unit becomes stuck in this mode. This has happened three times now in two years. Each time I have been shown the AC power box and it has burnt out on each occasion and I paid to have a new one installed. According to my repairer, this is a common fault in these units once they've hit 3-4 years of age. Nevertheless if they've been used regularly or not.

Mine is the same. As far as I am concerned I am going to buy a Hard Disk/ DVD recorder which will not be a Panasonic pile of SH*T
