Question about Panasonic DMRES15 DVD Recorder
First the problem may not be the laser, the most common problem involving DVD or CD players failue componet is the Spindal Moter. The motor that spins the Dics, the bushing go bad in motor and causing them not to spin up or spin a reduced speeds, the laser will not lift or pickup and read the TOC (Table of Contents) until the spindle motor sense terminal reports back to the micro that it is spinning at the proper speed. So before replacing the laser Traverse unit assembly as its called by panasonic I suggest you fist check the spindle motor and the Home posistion switch, this is the switch the optics assembly hits when its closest to the spindle motor, to let the micro know its in home start posistion, But if you just insist on ordering the traverse unit the part Number is as follows RFKNES15P this part comes with the Loading Motor/Optical pickup/spindle motor/tray loading belt.Now this part number is for the DMR-ES15P which uses the same part as the 16, But panasonic makes two models of the ES16 and they are the DMR-ES16PC and the ES16PL I am not sure which version you have but if it ends with pc or pl these models have a complete DVD drive in them like a Computer, and you will need to replace the digital board also, it comes as complete assembly if you need parts to these models I would be happy to help you.
