Question about Panasonic DMRES15 DVD Recorder

Error reading any dvd disks

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.

"No Disk" message on front display


If when you insert the disk you hear a whirring and clicking noise, CD spins, and does not read, then that is a problem with the DVD lens.

The DVD lens try to focus on the DVD track, by moving lens pickup and spinning the disk, but cannot read the tracks because the lens is dirty or defective.

Try first cleaning the lens with a DVD cleaner disk. And also if you can see the lens from the outside try blowing some canned air on it.

If this still does not help, then the lens pickup may be faulty, in this case you often replace the whole DVD drive unit inside the DVD player.

Roxio dvd disk type doesn't match project type


Check the following parameters

- Type of disk--> it must be a DVD RW disk (Read and write), if the media is only DVD R, you can't burn it
- Your DVD driver--> Check if it accepts DVD RW(-) or DVD RW(+) or both. With this information, check if the media matches the driver capability
- Roxio settings--> In the Main Menu select--> Disc--> Disk information--> confirm that the right driver is selected (drive D or E or the letter your computer uses for the DVD driver)

SAMSUNG DVD R120 error EC:0207


I had exactly the same problem -- error message of "This disc can be neither played nor recorded. Please check the disk [EC:0207]" after the machine had been working fine for a year. I downloaded the latest firmware from the Samsung website, burned it to a CD-R disk (took three tries until the DVD Recorder recognized the disk -- worked when I used Rocio CD Creater software), then loaded the firmware updates to the DVD Recorder. On the Samsung website you can retrive the firmware update instructions as well. I had to perform the firmware upgrade several times until it successfully updated both the system firmware as well as the disk firmware. After successfully updating both, the Recorder now recognizes the DVD-R disks and I was able to resume recording. I have however, noted some choppiness with the playback of the newly recorded disks. Other than that, the firmware upgrade successfully resolved the problem.
