Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

3 Answers

Recording and erasing stopped working after 3 yrs.

My DMRE50 has stopped recording and all functions like erasing after 3 yrs faultless service. Still plays fine. When trying to record it comes up with a variety of messages that result in a crash and then it tries to recover. Sometimes, I have to power off the machine and use "OPEN" to turn it back on to get the disk out

Is there some way of cleaning the record heads ?

    1.DVD-RAM (Panasonic or TDK) usually records but sometimes fails to start.
    2.Recorded disk plays ok.
    3.Erasedisk usually works but sometimes sets recorde into a "Recover" mode.
    4."Recover" goes into a loop and recorded stops responding to commands.
    5.Re-formatting disk (in recorder) sometimes helps but not always.
    6.Cleaning laser does not improve.
    7.Turning off/re-setting/ all usual basic things have not cured fault.
    8. Can I get a DMR E-50 software re-install?

Try Recording and eraseing on a DVD-RAM a lot until you can get it to erase a DVD-R that it has recorded but not finalized.

Then try recording on a non-finalized DVD-R that has previous recordings but still has some room left to record. Erase a program and record another show on the same dvd.

Try this untill it will finalize a track on a non-finalized disk and repeat, make a few tracks. Then record on that disk untill it's full and finalize the disk.

Once you can get it to record on and finalize a few disks that it had previously recorded on it should be able to accept new fresh un-recorded DVD-Rs.

Yup I have the same problem with ERASE and non recording. I have tried a lense cleaner, which I thought did work initially, however now it's not having it at all.

I have taken the thing apart to have a poke around but still no joy - apart from the discovery of a few 'spare' parts!?!? lol

Still I think the problem is with the RAM disks as I have a really old disk which which I have hardly used and this will still erase and record on demand. Hope this helps...

I ended up here becase but my remote has stopped working now with the message "Remote DVD 1" appears on screen when you try to use it, but nothing happens!?!?
