Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

"Please wait" ... panasonic dmr-e85h seems frozen

After trying to make the DVR do something it didn't want to do, the display came on and read "Please wait". After leaving it like this the rest of the month, and it still read "Please wait". I tried turning on the power, and nothing. I tried to open the disc door, and nothing. What could this be?
The DVR seems to be frozen, except for the "Please wait". How can I get the default settings to kick in to make the DVR functional?
Regards,
Mark

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!

Frozen on the Please Wait


This is a hard drive failure 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.
