Question about Panasonic DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

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 DMR_E80H recorder does not read blank dvd-r disks


I don't have a solution but I am having the same problem (same model DMR-E80H). It will read finalized dvds but won't recognize or play blank or non-finalized dvds. About a year ago I had to replace the hard drive . . . I'm just assuming that the dvd recorder is just slowly breaking down and will need some kind of repair of certain components. (I think we bought it new in 2003/2004?)

It sounds like the DVD-RAM drive is about dead. Panasonic did not make them to be very durable.

Panasonic sells replacements at a high cost.

Replacement drives may work from used models including:
DMR-ES15
DMR-ES25
DMR-ES45
DMR-ES46

My dmr-eh55s will no longer transfer from the hard drive to the DVD in the high speed mode. It will in low speed mode (real time).

Can the Panasonic DMR-EH55 be made to receive digital channels? e.g. via a digital capable TV or a set top box? If not, I suspect it will be obsolete when analogue channels cease this year (in Australia)


If you receive your channels through your local cable company, nothing will change. The DMR-EH55 will continue to work normally.
If you receive your channels with your rooftop antenna you'll need a Digital to Analog TV Converter Box. The unit itself will not receive digital signals directly.

If you put a disk in and it just clicks several times, it's more than likely the spindle motor. It's best just to replace the DVD drive. My own theory is that when you record in the high speed mode, it is just too much for the spindle motor to handle over time. I keep my record speed in the standard mode to play it safe.
