Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

I have a Panasonic dvd recoder with hard drive model #DMR=E85ZHP. It seems to not be getting power to it. It had been working fine, then the word checking scrolled across the front of the unit, then it went black. I need to know if it is worth fixing and where I can find a repair shop.

Quick look up open up unit and look in the power supply for a capacitor that has bursted (top popped off look at cover underneath for coke like substance) if this is the case you need to change the cap out quick fix if not a power supply will be needed and if I remember the E55 Power Supply is NLA from Panasonic

How do I stop my Panasonic DMR-EH75V DVD Recorder from automatically turnig itself off after 75 seconds?


It could be overheating.. Is it fairly consistent at 75 seconds? To test put the unit in the fridge for 30 minutes then quickly connect it up and test. If it is longer then 75 seconds then something is getting to hot. I've put hard drives (especially laptop ones) in the freezer if I need to copy off data but it clicks/stops working at room temp.

New hard drive


I would put in the same hard drive capacity especially on a ten year old machine, because the power supply could affect the capacitors on the motherboard and cause a short. Samsung hard drives work best with Panasonic hdd recorders.

The DVD player on my Panasonic DVD DMR-EX75 is not working. It no longer is able to read the DVD disk. Is it worth repairing or replacing the DVD drive? The system also has a large Hard Drive which still...


It is up to you, if you are able to obtain a replacement DVD drive for this model series, and it isn't too expensive, go ahead. There may be tips on installing the DVD deck on other forums - or it might be really simple (a DIY job) - or for extra labour costs, a qualified technician can fit it for you in a service centre.

So the short answer is YES it is worth repairing since the HDD is still functioning - if you are concerned about that as well as the DVD drive, get the whole unit assessed by a workshop; they can advise you further.

A second opinion always helps in a case like this, but I would recommend trying to obtain a replacement DVD drive for this model, either locally or by ordering online. This one IS fixable.

It sounds like the DVD-RAM drive is about dead. Panasonic did not make them to be very durable.

Panasonic sells replacements at a high cost.

Replacement drives may work from used models including:
DMR-ES15
DMR-ES25
DMR-ES45
DMR-ES46

My dmr-eh55s will no longer transfer from the hard drive to the DVD in the high speed mode. It will in low speed mode (real time).

My dvd recorder dmr e85 h panasonic dont rec dont play movies and dont acces to hard drive what is the problem


A DVD Recorder needs to play before it can record. Not accessing the hard drive as well indicates a problem with the power supply inside, more than likely. Time for a reputable repair shop.

When I have the same issue with my dmr-ez37v I recover by unplugging the unit for about 15 seconds, then plugging it back in. It seems the unit get "hung" about once a month and requires a hard power reset.

Hard Drive Problem


This has happened to me once. I unplugged it overnight and plugged is back in and everything (Except for the for the DVD that was being written when it malfunctioned) Worked fine. I suspect that a Capacitor is going bad but it’s still working (for 4 months) and I will put off any real trouble shooting until it fails hard.

Panasonic DMR-E80H Change Disc Error


If you haven't done so, try downloading the firmware update from their support site. Burn the update file to a cd-rom.

I have had numerous times where my unit recovered and I had to format the hard drive(losing all of my shows), but since I did the update this has not happened to me again.

DMR E80H hard drive


DMR-E80H Hard drive problem seems to pretty common. My drive started making the famaous kerchunk noise tonight. After disassembly I see the drive is a ATA133 Maxtor drive....are you sure that you replaced it with the correct drive? I may contact Maxtor and try to get an RMA since the drive is only 3yrs old. Good Luck
