Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder
I'm getting U61 errors. I read to open the cover, unscrew the 3 screws holding the dvd player in place and push the head back. I've unscrewed the 3 screws do i try to remove it from the metal casing too?
For U61 errors:
Turn unit off
flip down front a/v input panel
simultaneously press the channel up and stop buttons for at least 10 seconds.

I have seen several postings regarding errors for the DMR ES15 recorder. I have resolved errors on my 15 month old device by cleaning the black spool that retains and spins the disc. Using denatured alcohol on a lint free cloth, I carefully cleaned the hub but did not saturate the material. This immediately cleared the no read and unable to record errors. Of course, I had to remove the outside covers to access the inter-workings of the read-writer.

This error U61 indicates the unit is carrying its recovery process, which restores the unit to normal operation. It does not mean the unit is broken. Solution is to wait until the message disappears.

I opened the case, and then the DVD case and cleaned the rubber seat for the DVD with alcohol and quickly dried it with another Q tip. I then pushed the head to the back; as far as possible from the middle. I cleaned off some of the hardened grease from the guides on which the laser head travels. Then put it back together and it still gave the U61. I turned it off and then back on while holding the up channel and the down channel buttons in. It still didn't work. I opened the case and removed each of the ribbon connections and put them back in twice. Then I closed it up and held down the up and down channel buttons when it started. It worked. I could change to VHS and back to DVD. It plays and records. It must be that the lead solder on the ribbon plug-in connections gets oxidized and need to be cleaned. Just pulling them out and pushing them back in does it.
