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.

Testimonial: "great idea! but where do i get the capacitors?"

    I found the capacitors that I used at Radio Shack. Remember that you can use ones with larger uF and V ratings than were provided with the original equipment.

No power light look for a fuse--power light comes on and then goes out look for either a jammed mechanism or a power supply problem.

Panasonic DMR-EZ48V keeps blowing fuses.


I don';t like to replace fuses with the power on. the fuse is meant to protect valuable parts; this error mode indicates a probable fault internnaly. NEEDS to be serviced.

Panasonic dmr-e55 won't work, just says "hold" on display


HOLD or X HOLD? If the latter - which is most likely - then the Child Lock has been activated! Press and hold ENTER and RETURN simultaneously until HOLD disappears!

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.

Could be a blown internal fuse or a fault on the power supply board. If you can check these things yourself look towards a voltage regulator as the main culprit. Good luck.

DMR E55-P will not read DVD-R


Hi Benyto

Thank you for the information. Sorry that you are having such problems.

Nearly all the problems on ths DMR E55 are due to a faulty power board. The greatest load on the power supply is when the unit first reads discs and also when finalizing. Sometimes the unit cannot read discs and sometimes it continuously self checks.

Try replacing IC001 on the power board. This is a 5 pin regulator #STRG6353. This component gets very hot and the heatsink is poor. When I replace these, I use a larger heatsink and some heatsink paste which helps to prolong the life of the component. If you look at the regulator, you will see by the colour of the circuit board that it gets very hot. It fails after two or three years in all DMR E55s.

Be careful when you take the old regulator out because the print can lift away from the circuit board.

I have posted full instructions on how to replace the STRG6353 >HERE<

Hope this helps

Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder Problem


I have been told that panasonic now have a faster speed disc on sale to suit the newer dvd recorders that dmr-e55 cannot record on as they are too fast. You have to buy the slower speed ram discs to suit the dmr-e55.
