Question about Car Audio & Video

MY 2004 CHEVY TAHOE HAS A FACTORY PANASONIC DVD PLAYER MOUNTED ON THE CEILING. DURING A RECENT TRIP ONE OF THE GRANDKIDS PUT IN A MOVIE TAPE. THE MOVIE PLAYED AND ENDED WITHOUT INCIDENT. WE LEFT THE VEHICLE TO EAT LUNCH AND WHEN WE RETURNED MY DAUGHTER PUT IN ANOTHER MOVIE ASSUMING THE INITIAL DISC WAS REMOVED. WHEN SHE REALIZED WHAT SHE HAD DONE SHE HIT THE EJECT BUTTON. BOTH MOVIES CAME PART WAY OUT. SHE PULLED BOTH OUT AND THE DVD PLAYER THEN WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE THE DISCS OR DO ANYTHING. ALL THAT HAPPENS IS A BLANK SCREEN APPEARS AND A BLINKING LINE CONTINUES TO BLINK. THE DISC WILL BE TAKEN IN BY THE PLAYER BUT THEN THEY EJECT. CAN YOU HELP ME FIX IT?

Hi,
From the statement it looks like the aligment of the DVD lens is misplaced. If this is the case then I am sorry to say that you have replace the lense of the DVD player and replace the DVD player itself. However, before doing anything, insert DVD cleaner and run it, check if it running. If so, let it finish & then try to play a DVD. I would also advise you to visit the below link:

Hello,

The first thing i will want you to do is to clean the lens of the dvd with alens cleaner. If the poblem continue, take the cover off you will see ribbon cables on the DVD end of the machine. Carefully disconnect them and use a pencil eraser to clean the ends of the ribbons where the contacts are. Then reconnect them. This will solve the problem.

But, if this does not solve the problem, then, the motor on the dvd player is damage. you will have to change the motor in the dvd player. The motor allow the dics to load and play on the player. Also change the door of the player if it is damage.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

    WHEN I INSERT THE DISC TO CLEAN THE LENS IT DOES TAKE IT INTO THE PLAYER, THEN I SEE ----- (FIVE WHITE DASHES) RECUR AT SHORT INTERVALS. THEN A MESSAGE APPEARS ON THE SCREEN WHICH SAYS "DISC FORMAT ERROR" AND THE DISC IS AUTO-EJECTED. I HAVE ENTERED THE PROGRAM ON THE PLAYER TO SEE WHAT THE FORMAT IS AND IT SAYS "PRESET". I CHANGED IT TO NTSC WHICH IS WHAT THE MANUAL SAYS IS THIS COUNTRY'S CORRECT FORMAT. WHEN I REINSERT THE DISC (I TRIED SEVERAL MOVIES) I CONTINUE TO GET THE SAME MESSAGE; "DISC FORMAT ERROR". HELP ME PLEASE. THIS PLAYER COST A LOT OF MONEY AND I HOPE THAT WE CAN FIX IT WITHOUT TAKING IT IN TO THE DEALER WHO WILL THEN CHARGE ME MORE MONEY.

    Hi,

    disconnect the dvd player from the car for 24hours and connect it back.

    thanks.

    CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO DO THAT? THERE ARE THREE BIG BLACK METAL BOLTS VISIBLE INSIDE THE TRUCK AND BEHIND THE SCREEN ON THE CEILING. ARE THESE WHAT I NEED TO OPEN TO DISCONNECT THE PLAYER? OR IS IT DONE SOMEWHERE ELSE INSIDE THE TRUCK; MAYBE UNDER THE DASH???

I have a Panasonic DMR-ES35V and all is working great except it recently started showing only a blue screen when I try and play a VHS tape. Doesn't matter what kind of tape, home movie or professional it...


You can try cleaning the video heads and tape path within the VCR deck. If this doesn't fix it, then the heads are worn, or there is a fault with the head amplifier (this is part of the motherboard and nearly all surface-mounted components).

I would go with the simplest option first: check the condition of the heads, if dirty, clean them with commercially available head cleaning products such as isopropyl alcohol (IPA) head cleaning solution.

Dvd player tray keeps opening and closing.


The tray position switch is disconnected or bent from disassembly. I expect one plug wire is off when you put the unit back. The tray switch is mounted so the tray strikes the switch when fully in and fully out.

Help w/ panasonic burner


I own one and it is a pain to work. Put in the disc and vhs tape and hit the bottom right button, I believe it says DVD and above it says dubbing. Hold it for a few seconds and the screen will come up and the system will do the rest recording from your VHS tape to the disc. You MUST finalize the disc after you are finished if you want to watch it in another DVD players if not it will only work on the Panasonic. Hope this helps.
