Question about Panasonic DMRES15 DVD Recorder
The machine was working fine until the other day I inserted a DVD+R disk and the machine displayed a message informing me that it would need formatting before recording could take place. I followed the prompts and the formatting appeared to take place but then another message appeared to say that there was an error reading the disk. Subsequently every disk (blank or otherwise) I put in the machine results in the same error. When the machine makes its first attempt to spin each disk there is a series of loud short noises that do not sound healthy. Any ideas? -Thanks
Have you tried a DVD+/-RW ?
The noises that you are hearing will be the spindle motor trying to spin the DVD as the lifting presentation tray for the read/write head has not located, if the media is not spinning this will never be able to read the lead in on any DVD as it has not presented the disc in the correct place.
If is is out of guarantee then I suggest that you check to see if the DVD is spinning by removing the top cover with the power OFF then eject the tray and try to load the media a small touch of the DVD in the clockwise motion should cause the media to start spinning, this is for diagnosis only if this is the case then the spindle motor will need changing

Hi, I am facing similar problem when I inserted DVD into my player. Motor spins for a while and stops then after. I removed top cover and moved it manually when it stopped, but no luck. My system is able to play all other disks like VCD, DATA CD, AUDIO CDs, but not DVD. It was working fine just few days back. Don't know what could be the reason. any body can halp me. my warranty period got expired.
