Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder
My recorder is nearly 2 years old and has been playing up for some time but is now very bad.
When I am playing a pre-recorded program the disc appears to stop with a quite clunking noise from the disc. It will then start playing the program again, then it may stop with the picture broken up.
When I format a disc the tv screen shows the normal format messages then 'formatting complete' but the disc is not formatted and the message screen on the reader says 'noformat'.
Sometimes the disc seems to be blank but I know there is something recorded. If I switch the machine off and on it may be ok sometimes.
I have a similar problem in that it will not record at all or not record very well. It has a drive inside like a PC DVD drive called the DVD RAM drive. The horrible clunking (grinding) sound is the disc slipping in the spindle. Unfortunately here in Australia the fix is to replace the whole drive (AU$350)!!
I have opened it up and tried to adjust the force of the spindle and it works for a while.
Hope somebody has a better solution.
