Question about Panasonic DMR-ES30VS DVD Recorder/VCR
When I turn the DVD on I get a rubbing or groaning sound from the DVD when the disc is in. At times it will freeze during play & then stop. If I am recording a program the same time as watching a recorded program, the recorded program will stop & it goes to the one being recorded. Just lately I scheduled a program & it didn't record.
I know this is very late to reply, but here it goes anyway. The groaning sound if from the DVD disc slipping on the drive spindle. There is probably a buildup of particles on the rubber surface of the spindle, probably from the DVDs themselves. Remove the metal cover from the unit. Then remove the 4 screws from the top of the black plastic drive and lift off the top. Locate the drive spindle in the middle of the drive and carefully wipe the rubber ring surface on the top surface of the spindle. Use a clean piece of cotton dampened with alcohol. Then install the drive top panel and metal unit cover. You wioll need to repeat this periodically whenever the groaning symptom reappears.
