Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder
Hallo can you help when i press a button on my dvd recorder it comes up (hold) on the front display. thank you.
Hello again Dan
I repair these, but I have not seen this particular fault before.
However, you mention that you used to be able to leave it for an hour and it would then work. This means the unit was having difficulty in initialising.
There is a very common fault with this model where a power board regulator overheats and fails. This causes the machine to go into a self checking cycle. It will say "Self Check" on the display and if you leave it, the machine will often eventually work.
The regulator fails from about two years onwards, with various symptoms gradually getting worse until the unit packs up completely.
I can send you the full repair details if you want them, but you would have to be able to use a soldering iron and be confident in your own ability to disassemble and tackle a job like this. Or you may know someone who could repair it, if given the full details.
It should be an easy fix, so it would be a pity to write it off for such a fault.
