Panasonic DVD Recorder/Player - DMR E51- not able to Record

  1. I have the above DVD Recorder bought in Singapore 3 years ago
  2. It has been functioning well.
  3. Now it is not recognising DVD RAM Disc for recording but it plays whatever has been recorded earlier
  4. When I press the Record Button on the remote, it immediately goes to "Recover" and does not record; but it records on DVD-R
  5. If I try to use a new RAM disc and try to format, it says "Incompatible disc and cannot format"
  6. Pleas let me know the solution or a service centre in Bangalore, India
Please send me a mail at:

    I havè a very sil]milar problem. The failing to record on the old disc I put down to disc ware but now I am not so sure. Let me know if you find a solution.

    I have the same problem The DMR-E51 recognises and records to DVD-R, but not now to DVD-RW. I suspect DVD manufacturers are formatting the disc differently.

I do not have this problem however recently my DVD simply would not turn on, i unplugged it for a few minutes and it now works. my complaint right now is that one of the discs is now coming up as unformatted and when i try to format it, it cannot be done. the other 2 discs are fine (as this one once was also!)

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

Panasonic dvd/vcr DMR-EZ47V model.Code OOOOOO keeps going across.

You must manually hold in the on/off button on the machine itself (NOT on the remote) for approximately 30 seconds. This will shut the unit off. Then you can restart it.

DVD player/ recorder problems... PLEASE HELP!!!

I have now had two Panasonic recorders 3 years apart and both have gone down with this same fault.

It's a shame as they are a fantastic recorder, I would have thought Panasonic would have put this right by now. It now 5 years on since I bought my first one and it sounds as if they still have the same fault.

Why the hell can't they just fit a standard computer dvd drive that’s cheap to replace, and not this abortion they fit.

I was looking on E-bay for Panasonic recorders that where faulty and found around twenty.


"DVD drive faulty"

I’m now looking for a new one but don’t know what to do as I have a ton of discs that need to be finalized, may just forget about them and keep clear of Panasonic in future.

Panasonic DVD problems

sorry to say but both of these sound like loader the optics are faulty,you have to replace the full assy called a loader assy when this happens.Panasonic are the only company who offer part exchange tru authorised send back the faulty one and they will give reduced price on new one,.As to other makes see a lot of sonys with optic problems as well so isint just a panasonic problem.You could also try using ordinary dvdrs instead of ram discs as the optic has to work harder when recording and playing ram disc due to information contained.Hope I helped!
