Plays for a minute or two - then just shuts itself off
My DMR EH 75 V (just recently out of warranty) has mysteriously stopped functioning properly. When attempting to view a DVD or something recorded on the HD, it will play for a minute or two and then just say "BYE" and shut down. Is it trash time? Thanks for any help. Lloyd

It could be overheating.. Is it fairly consistent at 75 seconds? To test put the unit in the fridge for 30 minutes then quickly connect it up and test. If it is longer then 75 seconds then something is getting to hot. I've put hard drives (especially laptop ones) in the freezer if I need to copy off data but it clicks/stops working at room temp.
I bought a set-top converter box from Dish Network, which will operate with the DMR-EH75V through the remote control cable that was provided with the recorder. It tunes in all the available digital channels and uses the RCA A/V cables to connect to IN1 on the back of the recorder. TVGOS is now provided through channel 2.1 (CBS) in our area and it also provides the time signal that keeps the recorder's clock updated. NOTE: ONLY the Dish Network boxes work with these functions. I've had occasional issues with the box after some period - a few weeks - it needs to be rebooted or reset to manual and then back to automatic (which causes it to reboot anyway.) Model no is DTV PAL PLUS.
Shut down power, unplug from wall power socket, wait a few minutes then plug in and try again. This is the reset process, to load codes into drams properly when the machine is no longer in standby mode.
The DVD Drive is bad. Buy a used DMR-ES15, DMR-ES25, DMR-ES45, or
DMR-ES46 with a good DVD drive and swap out your bad drive. And be sure
not to record in the high speed mode in the future. Set your recorder
to High Speed Mode Off. Then see about getting your money back from the
shop that didn't know what they were doing.
For the unit to be confirmed if its o.k or not You have to take disc which is not very knew and slight scratches ,offcourse which is playing in your other dvd player.Play it on dmr-es 10 see if it plays normally,if it does than its lens is o.k.Other thing you can try is insert blanck disc and try formatting it,if it does than it s o.k.Try R+,R- AND RW+,RW-.iF This disc can be formatted on dmr es10 than the unit you can decide to purchase
