Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD video recorder. The disc tray appears to be locked. Even if I disconnect the power, or put the DVD in standby, - when the DVD is 'powered' on, it immediately displays the 'playing disc' symbol (as if it has one in its tray), then shows 'BYE' on the DVD. As soon as the OPEN/CLOSE button is pressed it repeats the process ... and we can't therefore open the tray? Any ideas please

    It is on a surge protector!

    What exactly is wrong though?
    You say the device is damaged, how was it damaged - the DVD tray was empty, and nothing was being recorded on the HDD - so why should the unit have been damaged?

The device is damaged, if you have warranty take it to the shop or a local repair shop / center.

It might have been caused by a power surge, Id recommend buying a surge protector to all the sockets where you have valuable devices connected.

    other option is to dismantle the device and remove the dvd and hope it recovers. but that might not solve the problem.

    So i still would recommend takeing it to a professional. Or to be warranty replaced.

    It seems to be a mechanical position switch problem. Tray wrong alignment.

I want to reset the reorder but i don't know how.


If you do not have your original instruction manual, you can download a free pdf from:

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Video/DVD-Recorders-Players/DVD-Recorders/model.DMR-HS2

(right-click and save link/target as... - it is a 3.2MB file (total size))

It may or may not help. Either way it's free.

Won't recognise DVD Ram and non-finalised discs from own recordings.


Hi,

Usually, the U11 error code in a Panasonic DVD player indicates an optical problem. You could of course try doing a cleaning using a CD cleaner normally readily from computer parts stores. Alternately, you can open the unit up and do a manual cleaning with soft bristle brush and/or cotton buds. Other than that, it could be indicative of a weakening laser eye which of course would require parts replacement.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you

need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa..

My Panasonic DMR-ES30 DVD Recorder / VCR Combo is about 5 years old now its fine on stand by but when i put a dvd or vhs in after about 10 seconds it cuts out completly any solutions on how to fix it...


This is a good sign that the power supply is having a problem. In standby or even on without a tape or disc, the current draw is low. Once a disc or tape is inserted there is a higher demand on the power supply. This is usually some defective capacitors that are easily replaced. Realize that there are other possibilities as well, but the power supply is the most common. The parts cost is in the $15 range.

    DMR-EZ48V- DVD drive not working


    Check Panasonic.com for Firmware updates. If it has a reset button reset it. Take off the cover remove dust and lint, also clean laser eye with rubbing alcohol. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LASER LENS IF YOU PLUG IT IN, DURING THE OPERATION.

    My dvd recorder (model DMR-EZ47V) says no disc, and won't open up the dvd tray, even though no disc is in it. It initially froze up after I watched a dvd-rw that I had recorded with the unit, and it would...


    Panasonic, who has always put a real, live, English-speaking person on the phone with me within seconds of dialing, quickly figured it probably needs service.  They are sending me an order to send it in to one of their service centers.  They just needed my serial number.

    Locked DVD Tray


    I'm pretty sure the force disk eject is the same across all Panasonic models - however I couldn't find anything specific for your model number. Still worth a shot, though.

    With the unit in standby, press and hold the 'Stop' and 'Ch up' buttons together. It should power up and force the tray open. If this doesn't work, try changing up your timing by pressing and holding 'Stop' first, then a half-second later, press and hold 'Ch up' and keep them both held together. You can also try the opposite.

    If none of these work, it will have to be taken apart to get the disc out. If you aren't comfortable trying, it will have to go to service.

    Tray will not open


    put the machine in standby mode (ie switch power button on machine or remote) then, press and hold the STOP and CHANNEL UP buttons simultaneously. This will force the disk tray to open.
