here is one for you,
i have a panasonic dmr-es35v dvd/vhs recorder, we had it for about 2months and the power was interupted several times in a row, causing the unit to shut down and give an error code of "U61" and it would not reset, i took it in for diagnostics test , and they said the hard drive was fried, and it would cost me $435 dollers to fix, i laughed and said i bought it at wal mart for $239 dollers brand new! is there any way i can fix this on my own or am i out of luck on this one?

Re: panasonic dmr-es35v dvd recorder
It can be repaired however I am not sure if the hard drive is available for that unit or not. I would contact panasonic to inquire as to the availability of a new drive.Sorry I couldnt help you more with it.

You can try a reset, but I doubt it would do much good. The loud grinding noises and failure to record sound to me like the DVD-RAM drive has had it. This sadly is not a cheap part to replace, and there's the issue of fitting/alignment/firmware upgrade etc.
Uneconomical for a model that is over 4 years old (since it has no digital tuner).
However, if you are prepared to spend a small fortune on a workshop repair/replacement DVD drive, go ahead, but I warn you it could cost as much as, if not more than the price of a new VHS/DVD recorder combo unit.
FOR AL THOSE WHO HAVE A PANASONIC DMR-ES35VS THERE ARE MAJOUR PROBLEMS WITH THE RAM DRIVE WHEN IT IS DEFECTIVE THE DVD PLAYER WILL MAKE A SOUND LIKE IF ITS TRYING TO READ OR YOU WILL HERE A SORT OF SCRATCHING SOUND THIS MEANE YOUR RAM DRIVE IS DEFECT IT WILL COST 200 DOLLARS FOR THE PART
Put the main aerial into the set top box,then take a male to female fly lead and connect it to your panasonic,then take another fly lead from the panasonic into the tv.If you have two scart sockets on each unit and the tv you can connect one into the tv from the box and one from the panasonic into the tv,then you can connect the box to the panasonic so you could record from the box.
Is the Remote Control sensor in direct fluorescent lamp light or other strong
sources of light?
Press unit POWER button down over 7 seconds. The POWER indicator goes
out. If the Power was On, the screen will also disappear. After 5 seconds, turn
Power On and operate unit normally. If the steps above do not restore normal
operation, disconnect then reconnect the AC plug and turn the power On.
