Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR
The DVD tray seems frozen. I have tried turning the power off and pressing the reset button, but nothing seems to work. Also, there is a DVD in the tray that had played fine, but now that the tray is stuck, the display also says "no disc" after trying to read it.
I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!

Without knowing more of your specific situation, it sounds like the disc is physically stuck and is blocking the motor mechanisms from ejecting. There should be 1-2 screws on each side & one at the rear of the player to remove the outer casing. When you open it, any obstructions should be obvious. The screws should be easy to figure out with an arrow pointing to them stamped into the medal, kindof looks like: =>
