Question about Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder
Hi... My DMR E55 will play all commercial disc including CD-R. But it will not read DVD-R so it will not go into record mode. I tried to updatate it with firmware but still it cannot read a DVD-R disc.Please help me. Thanks.
Thank you for the information. Sorry that you are having such problems.
Nearly all the problems on ths DMR E55 are due to a faulty power board. The greatest load on the power supply is when the unit first reads discs and also when finalizing. Sometimes the unit cannot read discs and sometimes it continuously self checks.
Try replacing IC001 on the power board. This is a 5 pin regulator #STRG6353. This component gets very hot and the heatsink is poor. When I replace these, I use a larger heatsink and some heatsink paste which helps to prolong the life of the component. If you look at the regulator, you will see by the colour of the circuit board that it gets very hot. It fails after two or three years in all DMR E55s.
Be careful when you take the old regulator out because the print can lift away from the circuit board.
I have posted full instructions on how to replace the STRG6353 >HERE<
Hope this helps
