Question about Panasonic DMR-T3040 DVD Recorder

Open Question

I have a DMR T3040 It has worked fine in the past, but now every time I power it on it begins giving the message "recover". It does this for several seconds, then powers down. If I insert a dvd it does the same thing. I tried unplugging it for seconds, minutes, then hours to no avail. I cannot find this problem in the trouble shooting guide of the manual... maybe I missed it? Please help! Thank You!

I had the same problem with my first unit, took it back they had to unscrew it all to get me back my DVD. They gave me a new machine. Checked it out seems it's a Auto Tuning problem, i went into the menu and restricted the auto tuning, problem is now, every time i switch it on it wants to update the tuning!! Pain in the ass. Contemplating taking it back again. Panasonic said it must be a one off, they hadn't had any other complaints!! Yeah right.

Unplug the unit.
Plug back in and wait till you see 000000.
Press and hold the power button in at least ten seconds or until the clock shows up.
This worked to fix mine.

Open the casing, check the following and follow the instructions.
1. Clean the lens using cotton or cotton cloth.
2 Take extra care not to touch the lens with bare hands.
3. If the player displays "no disc" right after closing the tray then
check capstan motor if it spins smoothly.
4. Replace capstan motor if it cannot spin smoothly or if it seems it
cannot spin the disc.

SOURCE: F60 ERROR CODE ON PANASONIC DMR-ES40V

Unplug the unit for 24-hours. I know, it should not take that long, but in this case I tried shorter periods WITHOUT success!

Just before plugging in unit depress and hold POWER button. You are supposed to hold it for 30-seconds after plugging in, but in my case I did it for 60-seconds. This results in a MASTER RESET that clears all errors, resets interlocks, etc. I could not get past a DVD failure problem, but when I discovered this process everything worked fine!!

Good luck! Hope it works for you too.

to turn off the power of the unit.

2) Unplug power cord and wait for approx. 1 minute.

I've had a Panasonic DMR-E85H since 2005 and it's always worked great. Several weeks ago when I pushed the button on the romote to start the machine, it went through the normal startup & self-test then...


My E85H went totally out the other day. Had been experiencing the dreaded 'please wait' syndrome for the past month but started working again. I e-mailed Panasonic and they told me to send it to;

McAllen Service Center
4900 George McVay Dr.
Suite B Door #12
McAllen, Tx 78503

Said it would take 2 - 3 weeks, include a note explaining the issue. They do not need the power cord or remote. Also said charges would $50+parts+shipping. I assume labor will be higher after they determine what the problem is.

Have you looked at this thread http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display. I followed the well written advice/instructions, took mine apart tonight and found 3 bad capacitors which I will be replacing tomorrow. If I have the luck that the others have reported my unit should be up and running tomorrow night for under $10 and a little time. Hope this helps.

My DMR-E80H will no longer record onto blank DVDs


One solution is to clean the laser lens. Try using one of those lens cleaning CDs.

Also, sometimes the DVD may slip on the spindle, which may cause reading errors. Spindle cleaning usually involves taking the machine apart.

Panasonic ES40v - Can't play DVD's - Incorrect region


I had the same trouble, also wouldn't play back discs that I recorded using it. The commonly listed reset of channel up and down at the same time was not meant for this model.
Below is the official solution that was sent to me by panasonic.
After using this method to reset my player it worked great. it was just like taking it out of the box for the first time.

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your inquiry, reguarding model DMR-ES40V.

Try this reset to fix the issue.

1. Unit power must be on.

2. Press [STOP] & [VHS > DVD] ON THE UNIT for over 5 seconds.

Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

Thank You,

When I have the same issue with my dmr-ez37v I recover by unplugging the unit for about 15 seconds, then plugging it back in. It seems the unit get "hung" about once a month and requires a hard power reset.

When I put a DVD-R Disk into my DMR T3040 Digital video Recorder it does not recognise it. It reads and then says there is no disk. When I try to dub it asks for a recordable disk. What can I do?


If the DVD is readable by another DVD player, then it is an issue with the senstivity of alignment of the DMR T3040. The DMRxxx may also have a defect that is causing it to be insensitive.

Try to see if you can get other devices to read the DVD in question. The process of elimination will give you the answer.

DISC WILL NOT EJECT


Don't know if this will work for you, but I unplugged the player then plugged it back in again whlie holding down the power button. The player did not power up until I released the power button and pressed it again. That did it.

Panasonic DMR-E80H Change Disc Error


If you haven't done so, try downloading the firmware update from their support site. Burn the update file to a cd-rom.

I have had numerous times where my unit recovered and I had to format the hard drive(losing all of my shows), but since I did the update this has not happened to me again.
