Question about Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

My DMR-E80H will no longer record onto blank DVDs

My DMR-E80H says every blank DVD I put into it is now "...a non-recordable disc." I've been using it for years and it just started this. I've tried two different brands that have both worked fine in the past. Has the record laser died or something?Can it be fixed or is it time to replace?

One solution is to clean the laser lens. Try using one of those lens cleaning CDs.

Also, sometimes the DVD may slip on the spindle, which may cause reading errors. Spindle cleaning usually involves taking the machine apart.

Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD recorder no longer reads DVD-R or DVD Ram it will play commercial DVDs. I've cleaned the lens, updated the Firmware and still no help.


The one thing that will alway fail on these as well as any laser read piece of equipment is the laser reader. I would check into that to start and don't look into the laser. The parts are available and it is a matter of your experience with electronics as to how easy this will be for you to replace.

My DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks


I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)

Dmr-ES30V Dvd plays pre record movies fine but I


Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer


I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Since it went into "disk recovery mode" it now will not play dvds


Got the same problem. Happened 2 months after guarantee expired. **** machine. The only good thing is the harddrive and that is made by HITACHI not Panasonic! I go Sony next time. Panasonic quoted £200 plus to fix the problem. I only paid £220 when I bought it new.

The Panasonics are very picky about the media ie brand and quality of the DVD blank. Try a different brand and see if that helps.
