Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder
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.
good day 2 you,, ,, i have some little advice on you,,
just open the top cover of your player and check the RIBBON WIRE of the LENS/EYE part then clean theGOLD FINGER/LINES
and get some clean cotton buds and a lighter fluid 2 clean the lens,,,,,ok,,

SOURCE: PANASONIC DVD RECORDER DMR-E85HP
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.

Testimonial: "Thank you."
In an unit of this age the first thing that fails is the power source (more specifically the filtering capacitors - they start to dry out), especially in a unit like this, with very little space inside for air flow and big consumers that generate a lot of heat.
If when the source has failed nothing else was damaged the fix will be quite simple and easy to do and al the replacement part will cost less than $40. To that you must add the labor - that depends on who is going to do the job.
