Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

2 Answers

Stuck dvd disc.

Have a DVD disc stuck and the open/eject button does nothing when pressed. The screen claims no disc but it's in there. I've pushed the reset button several times but all it'll do is make some winding noises then it quiets down. Shall I attempt to pull out the tray lightly or take it in?

    Hi Palmbeach, I tried your suggestion but it didn't work. I do have the manual and read in the troubleshooting guide how to eject but nothing happens. I'll take it in for repair this morning.

    Thanks for your time.

    I tried that also exmarine but it was hopelessly stuck. I had to take the unit in for repair, They replaced the dvd mod board which went bad. Got it back yesterday and all is well again.



    Thank you all for taking the time to help. God Bless you all.

Hi there

Page 80 in the instruction manual tells you how to do this.

In case you don't have a manual, do the following:
While the unit is off, press and hold the stop key (shown on the unit as a button with a small black square on it) for about 5 seconds. It may take longer to eject depending on the disc.

Hope this helps

It is actually a combination of the STOP and CH-UP button for five seconds while the unit is in standby. If this doesn't work, simply try to press the OPEN/CLOSE button while the unit is off - it should power up and try to eject the disc. If not, something else is wrong.

Is there a way to get the disc out without dismantling the entire TV? Disc is stuck, lock icon shows when eject button is pressed. Can TV be reset to factory specs?


Try the following. kindly update result here in comments

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons.

If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

DVD stuck in my Panasonic DMR-E30


Hi Rock.

I had the same problem like this on my machine. The best way to fix it is to turn the machine off completely and hold on the eject button then turn the power on. You want the first thing the player does is to eject the disk without trying to read it first.

I hope it works let me know if it doesn't and i'll try and recreate the problem on my player and see what i can do to get the disk out.

The last resort is to manually take the disk out but lets cross that bridge if my suggestion above doesn't work.

Thanks

smeags.

Dvd will not eject


Jammed.
Straighten one end of a Norwegian paper-clip.
Insert that end into the small hole in the face-plate.
Push until you feel resistance.
Firmly push another 5mm to "unlock" it.
Then, press OPEN.

My CH-300 dvd player's door won't open when I try to insert a disc.


Unplug it for a minute or so. Maybe it just needs to reset.

The dvd drawer on my BD-HP16U is stuck in closed position. The screen display "hold" when I push the eject button.


Try inserting a small pin through the hole beneath the insertion cabin, after pressing the eject button. If you don't have such a hole, Push the eject button and tap hardly on the top of the player. The drive will come out in two or three attempts.

DISC DRAWER WILL NOT OPEN


First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.

If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

Good luck!

Disc won't eject, stays in "RECOVER" mode


look on the face of the machine, near the dvd slot. what you are looking for is a tiny hole, the size of a pencil lead. some players, not all, have this manual release. If you are fortunate enough to have one of these little holes straighten out a small paper clip and use it as a wire to insert in the hole and release your dvd.

DVD Player won't open


Try this. This works on some brands and models.

Power up the unit. Using the remote, press and hold the 'STOP' button for about 5 seconds. Release and press the 'OK' button.
