Question about Panasonic DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

DMR-EH55 DVD recorder is not able to read DVDs any more

After about a year, the DVD drive is not able to read DVDs. The recommendations I see on your site say that the lens should be cleaned. How can I get to the lens to clean it? I took off the cover, but the DVD drive does not appear to be easy to open up to get to see the lens.

You purchase a dry DVD lens cleaner and put it inside the tray. It will clean it for you. If you take apart the drive to expose the lens, you are actually at risk of making it worse.

My toshiba satellite won't read cds. every once in a while it will but other times it wont.


Assuming no dirt on the laser lens which you can clean with a laser lens cleaner http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9302097&st=cd+cleaner&type=product&id=1218081366389 .Recommend saving up for a replacement CD Drive. My Toshiba Satellite did that for about a year before the drive gave out completely. Found a replacement on ebay for around $25 dollars.

Will not read DVD discs.


It looks like you have a lens problem, DVD and CD use a different error correction and different track format.
A dirty lens can read CD but not DVD.
Tru first using a lens cleaner like this ones:

If it does not work you can try cleaning the lens directly with cotton and isopropyl alcohol, you will need to undo the screws at the button and to take apart the cover. Unplug power when doinfg this.

If it still does not work, since you aready reinstalled the firmware, the lens may be faulty.
You can order the lens pickup from factory and replace it.

Try updateing your drivers firmware.
also cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning cd/dvd kit.

if that doesnt solve the problem then the lens system would need to be replaced -> better to buy a new drive.
