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.
This function is kind of confusing. It will not shut the player down while music is playing. It's just basically a battery-saving function. Say you leave your player on and not playing. After set amount of minutes it'll shut off to save battery life, but not if it's playing music. Odd function, eh?
(btw, this is what i've found to be the function and may not be 100% right.)
Hi James, replace the fan or If it's still under warranty have it serviced. Suggest you stop turning it on until the fan is replaced. It could be the fan cooling the CPU. You don't want it to fry.
The shut down process is normal when over heating is detected by the system.
. Try taking a can of compressed air and spray in the vents in the front and the back of the heater.The heater has a sensor that gets dusty and causes it to shutoff to prevent overheating. The heater should function properly once the dust is blown off the sensor. Good luck!
