Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Panasonice DVD Hardrive recorder

DMR-E85H is a DVD-HD combination record unit. The unit has worked great for a couple of years, mostly recording to the hard drive. Suddenly displays PLEASE WAIT and will not respond to any control. I tried the recommended reset of unplugging power and waiting 1 minute. I tried unplugging power and waiting overnight. I tried holding down the power button for 10 seconds. Any thoughts?

I have a Panasonic DVD Video Recorder model DMR-E85H manufactured in 2004. It has worked perfectly for all these years but now won't power up at all. I have checked the only fuse I could find inside...


The power supply board is the problem, one of the most common failure is the 1000uf capacitor "open" located near the power transistor that is heat sinked, value may be higher or lower with one or two caps, the second possibility is the power transistor may be open or shorted.

Why won't dmr e85h pick up all the digital channels the tv attached to it will? Is it outdated technology? Do you need a digital set top box or completely replace the unit? Anyone...?


You most likely will need a set top box connected to this recorder in order to receive digital channels, Assuming the DVD recorder works besides this detail, you should not need to replace the unit. Only replace it if it DOESN'T work.

The DMR-E85H is a 2005 model so it is more than 5 years old.

Pansonic e 85h won't play recorded disc or finalize recorded discs also unable to play previously finalized discs, hdd is working and recording fine, what could be the problem on this dmr e 85h panasonic...


The symptoms sound like the laser needs cleaning adjusting or replacing by a qualified technician. If it is under warranty then you can return it. The only other thing youmight try is to open it and gently clean the laser lens with a q tip and a drop of alcohol if you know how. Otherwise get it professionally serviced.

Kind Regards

No VCR required - A VCR is a video cassette recorder, which requires a video cassette in order to record source material. A DVD recorder, requires DVD discs and this model in particular has a built in hard drive so you don't even need discs either, unless you plan to share recordings with others. All you need is a 'feed' / 'source' from an external aerial like Cable or Sky etc.
Does that help?

This forum has a couple of solutions for resolving this error message. I personally have only had the u99 error with my E85H unit and resolved it with a firmware upgrade. It has worked great for the last 3 years.
