Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder
I had the same problem with my DMR-E55 over the weekend. I looked at similar problems and solutions for the DMR-E85 on this website. If you open the case, look for two capacitors that may have a bulging top end and a yellow/gold substance leaking out. If you see that, you have the same failed capacitor problem. Usually both will have failed, but the problem may only be noticeable on one. Replace both the C1260 and the C1261 while you are doing the work. Use the next larger uF and V ratings with both wires coming out of the end of the capacitor. Note the +/- polarity on the existing and new capacitors. Look at other solutions for similar DVRs on this website and club.cdfreaks.com I will try to post my photos on a photo-sharing website tomorrow. I will post a link here after I upload them.
