    I had the same problem.  I have a Panasonic EH 55 and any DVD I put in the machine says no read.  I wish I didn't record in the high speed mode.  Anyway I sent it back to get repaired because it's still under warranty.

    Same problem - no read or write to DVD, and just out of warranty, Panasonic service quoted $605 to replace the DVD drive, $200 more than I paid for the machine new! Not happy, Panasonic! Complained but wouldn't help and no explanation for the exorbitant cost of part. Now looking at a Sony.

    I have the same problem. It was working fine, but then I went to copy from the HDD to the DVD and it stopped working and would no longer read any DVD's.

    I had this same problem about 11 months after purchase. I brought it in and had dvd drive replaced under warranty. 11 months later I have the same problem. Cost to replace is somewhere around $600! Apparently they have a very short life, obviously not worth paying hundreds of dollars for another 11 months.

    Strange thing is it will still read DVD-RAM.

    Panasonic Model DMR-EZ47V Panel flashes "No Read". I need to finalize disc from this machine. Do I need the same model DVD player to finalize the disc.

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.

Panasonic DVD recorder #DMR-EH65. It will accept a blank dvd then go into read,I can hear the lens assembly go back and fort several times,then it says disc error.Did the lens life expire?


Hello timmy: The recording process on the dvd recorder side is done is done by a seperate lens from the playback, so there could be something wrong with the writable side of the optical assembly, another thing to consider trying is the cleaning disc if you haven't tried this, another brand of blank disc and finally a firmware update is available from panasonic for the specific model you have, I don't know if you have updated it but here is the overall description: DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder Firmware Update
  • Version UP-317
  • Compatible Models DMR-EH55S
  • Issues Addressed Issues Addressed
    1. Corrects DVD Recorder hang-up or freezing during DVD playback caused by connection to Scientific Atlanta cable box model # 3250.
    2. Resolves U71 error message caused by HDMI connection to Philips TV.
    3. Improves DVD-Video playback of DVD+RW discs.
    4. Prevents DVD Recorder from turning on Panasonic TV's power by HDAVI control (EZ Sync) when connected with HDMI at completion of copying or finalizing.
    5. Resolves SET CLOCK MANUALLY tab being grayed out after a power failure.
I hope this is helpful and the update is available from panasonic.com, all you need is to type the model number in the search windows after you click the support option. Thanks!

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).


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

We have a Panasonic DMR-EH55 dvd recorder, it worked just fine until March, 2009 when Shaw quit subscribing to tv guide. Has there been any resolution to this issue?


Shaw like Time Warner in many areas of the U.S. will never go back to TV guide.
Your best bet is to switch to the competition in your area.

Written "NoREAD"


The disc is scratched or dirty. Try cleaning the disc with a proprietary disc cleaning cloth/fluid/kit.
