Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

Another busted capacitor

Hi, thanks everyone for the info! I replaced the busted c1270 and c1271 capcitors with the recommended 1000uF 3V ones. I plugged it in and the Please Wait error still shows up. When I opened it up earlier I noticed that another capacitor looked a little bulgy but not nearly as much as the other two. So when I opened it up again, I noticed that it really looked bulged out (much more than before). So I would like to replace that one. Since I know nothing about electronics and no one here has yet to suggest an alternative capacitor, I was going to just replace it with the same type of specs. It is 1500uF 6.5V. Unfortunately the local stores here don't carry that one. Can anyone recommend a different on I could use that would still be safe. I didn't want to just use anything and have the thing start a fire or something.
Thanks!

SOURCE: DMR E85HEG turn on

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.

PLEASE WAIT


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 display has R68:33 on it.


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.
Again
Thanks to all that contributed to the articles on how to fix the PLEASE WAIT problem by replacing C1270 & C1271, you saved my DVR

Need to replace capacitor on dvd player


Hi, you should use a capacitor with same capacitance of 1000uF, but you don't have to stick to the original voltage spec. 1000uF 10V means it can withstand 10V load. 1000uF 50V means it can hold 50V for the same capacitance. Today I fixed my friend's and for that I used 1000uF 35V from RadioShack. It perfectly works - and it's better. But you shouldn't use 1000uF 5V - by now you already know that :)

Rca drc8052nb only says ''hello'' on screen, can anyone help?


RCA DRC 8052NB does nothing but displays "HELLO"

Among the voltages available from the power supply is a 3-volt source. The first capacitor after the diode is a 1000 microfarad, 6.3-volt unit. There were no signs of leakage of overheating, but I changed it anyway. Voila! the unit came to life. Hope this helps.

IT say Please Wait


I had the same problem a few months ago - the fix was what gorickhoward mentioned. Two capacitors from radio shack and a $6 soldering kit made it better than new.

DVD Recorder frozen - please wait on display


Just wanted to supplement DC's solution with photos for those who would like to see the project before attempting. For the record this fix worked perfectly and my unit is back to perfect working order with all my recordings intact. 
Start by removing the top cover of the unit.
Working from the back of the unit you'll see the hard drive on the left.

Remove the two screws indicated by the red circles in the picture above. Then slide the cover plate forward and remove.

Two cables are connected to the hard drive. Left side is power and the black ribbon is the data connector. Both come off pretty easily. After removing cables lift out hard drive. Here's what you get.

Better view of cables after removing the drive. Remove plastic drive liner.

Remove the four screws indicated by the red circles in the picture above. Note the one at the top. (I missed this one for a few moments while putting it back together.) Remove drive mount.

Viola! You now see the burned out capacitors. Also circled are the four screw holes you just removed screws from and a cable that must be disconnected. (see next pic)

Gently pry up on the black plastic part of the cable mounted on the power board. You can see in this picture how I've just started to get it off a bit. You may have to pull on the latch in the center of the mounting. I did but I don't know if it was necessary. 
6a40e7f.jpg

On the back of the unit remove one screw just above the power plug. Then rock and twist and hold your tongue just right to get the power supply board out.

You'll see the capacitor numbers labeled on the circuit board on the front and...
0c5a5f3.jpg

on the back. Use a soldering gun to melt the solder on these four spots rocking the capacitors out of the holes as you do so. Just don't get solder over to any adjacent circuits.

You end up with nicely marked pos/neg info on the board.

Get your new capacitors from Radio Shack or other electronics store.

The ones suggested by DC are more heavy duty so they are bigger. I chose to lay them on their side so as to not raise the height of the board components. There is plenty of room to do so making my decision to do so a no brainer.
3a2e837.jpg

I leave the leads on the capacitors long until the capacitors are positioned and soldered in good shape. 
e923a3f.jpg

Then clip the extra lead down to the solder with a wire cutter.
Thats it. reverse the directions to re-assemble the unit. 
Hope the pictures helped. They always seem to help me prepare for such an adventure.
