Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR
OK, try a reset of your unit. You say that this happened when you tried unsuccessfully to format a disc. Now what can happen, is that damage may occur, while trying to Format a disc, to do so, the Current it ramped up to a higher level to Format the disc, now, when there is a problem with Formatting, or reading/writing, the controller tells the lasers driver to increase the current to sometimes, undesirable level, especially if there has been a a problem with the other side of things called a "Quadrant" detector, which is also damaged from overdriving the laser, and when it does, the whole thing more or less "Burns Out' and the laser head goes faulty, now i suggest this is what has happened to your unit. This fits with ALL the symptoms and facts. You have two options three if you do nothing, and they are fix it yourself, or have it attended to by an expert. I personally suggest the latter, Now if you do decide to get this unit repaired please contact a local or head office of Panasonic, and ask for a referral to an authorised service center. One can also ask for a "Quote" before any repair is undertaken, if you choose to do it yourself, you first must get hold of a service manual, to be able to order the part, i have searched, but have been unable to find any. Below, is a forum pertaining to your unit, with a couple of things to try before deciding 100% that it is the laser head assembly. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?p=15088527
