    I have the same problem. My Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD recorder was a Christmas present in 2006. Last week it stopped working. There is no power at all, it is flat dead. The fuse inside is still good.

    I purchased DMR-ES10 May 2005. February 2008 went dead. Will not power up. Fuse is good. I did not use it that much overr 2 1/2 years. Should have lasted much longer.

    I have the same problem, 2 days before it was working fine, went to use it today and it wouldn't power on, not displaying anything, no time shown. Tried different outlets, unplugging cord, nothing helped

    I changer capacity, but it is still not working. 5V and 16V DC is back, but the voltage on pin #1 on the connector between PSU to main board is jumping from "0" Volt to DL (on my DMM), once every 2 seconds.

    My Panasonic DMR ES10 DVD recorder worked fine for about 3-4 years. For some reason, it could not be powered up. I read the solution and it sounded like you would need some electronic skill (opening the box and mess with capacitors) to fix it. If enough users having the same problem, should Panasonic provide some assistance or recall?

Mine died about 5 days ago, About Feb 5 09.

Fix was very simple. it involved a drill, a soldering iron, and spare capacitors.

Open up the unit. Spot all bad capacitors. in my case, a 820uf 10v ELNA capacitor was to blame, it had exploded adn opened up. Desolder the bad capacitor, Replace it with a good one, like matsushita or rubycon or nichicon. Random brands like CAPXONS and ELNA and Fuhjyuus are known to die fast. in my case, it got swapped with a matsushita. then the unit powered up again.

I found it funny that panasonic did not use a single one of their own capacitors in teh making of the unit. i spotted lots of Nichicons, which are really good, then lots of ELNAs which are bad, one Capxon and some matsushitas.

I'm sorry I can't suggest a solution but the same thing happened to mine on Christmas Eve! Seems that earlier posters had the same trouble on or near to the same day- surely not a built-in failure programme?!
