Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Can I learn to replace the capacitors on my DMR-E85H

Forgive me if this posts multiple times. I was having some technical difficulty with my browser.

My Panasonic DVD recorder DM$-E85H has frozen on Please Wait. There isa post from jazzguy1233 indicating he fixed a similar problemon hisunit by replacing two leaking capacitors located under the hearddrive. I've taken apart my unit and found the samesituation. Two capacitorsappear to be bulging and have a brownsubstance on top.

I'mcomfortable taking the unit apart -- clearly -- but have never doneanycircuitry work or soldering. Can I learn to do this and doyourecommend any books or links that would offer me guidance? Itseemslike a solution that might cost less than $10 for parts at RadioShackand a couple of hours -- would be infinitely preferable tothe $130charge by Panasonic.

    Problem solved -- used hiker_DC's solution posted in another
    thread. Replaced the C1270 and C1271 capacitors with two of
    higher specs (1000 ufm) purchased from Radio Shack -- and it seems to
    be working fine.

You must replace the inside "str" sheet feeding and condenser close. Everything back to normal. :-)

My Panasonic DMR-E85H also had the frozen "Please Wait" problem.I found this site and followed the instructions regarding replacement of the C1270 and C1271 capacitors with Radio Shack 1000uF 35V radial-lead capacitors (model 272-1032) @ $1.59 each. Took about 30 minutes plus the time to get the parts. Keep in mind that my husband and I have never done anything like this before. We followed all the posted instructions and the our Panasonic DMR-E85H works great now. Many thanks to everyone who posted these solutions and especially RandyChev for the great pictures. - What a life saver.

Pan. dmr-e85h turned itself on, self-check


Open case and look for failed capacitors, which are cylindrical and will have a bulging top and a yellow/gold substance leaking out. If this is the problem, search for previous solutions that mention "solder capacitor C1260" for the DMR-E85. I had a similar 'no power' problem with my DMR-E55 and my son and I were able to fix it Sunday. Not hard to do and mine is working again!

Panasonic dvd video recorder dmr-e85h is dead


I had same problem. 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...

Good luck.

Also for those interested, I found the "commands" listed on http://www.dxcc.com/dmr-e85h.htm useful when operating the DMR-e85h to correct problems.

No lights or power indication at all on my DMR-85HP.

If replacing the capacitors doesn't work, try replacing PSU Regulator - STRG6353.

Good luck.
