Question about Panasonic DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

1 Answer

DVD stuck I inserted a blank DVD and now it sounds as if it is stuck. I've tried ejecting it and no luck. Powered off and on a few times and no luck. Of course there's nothing mentioned in the manual as to opening the DVD tray manually. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Sas

this may sound strange but what is the rom's you are trying to use them on as some rom's will not take 8x recording or R - or + and it will say there is no disk and ejecting the disc. and dvd disc only work with dvd drives designed for instant record. most models take data/dvd disc as it can be formated in both formats to record but dvd is just one setting that most dont have.

Vcr makes knocking sound then shuts off


Is that when you insert the tape? Try ejecting and inserting a few times to see if you can "unstick" something that's stuck. If that doesn't work, you're probably going to need service. VCR mechanisms are usually driven by belts that dry out with age and can start slipping or breaking. It's going to be increasingly difficult to keep a VCR going in today's world. Service will get expensive and rare and parts hard to find. See if you can just buy a new one. Otherwise, get a DVD player and have any precious videos converted to DVD. It's only a matter of time before VCRs disappear entirely.

Why can't we get the dvd to eject?


Possibility 1 -
The laser light inside the DVD player is most probably no longer aligned and cannot read the beginning of the disk. Therefore it keep on trying to find the first line but it can't.
Possibilty 2 -
Your husband entered a pirated copy and sometimes the first few tracks are unreadable due to the lower quality of DVD-R used and it jams the laser light inside the DVD player.
What needs to be done is to unplug the DVD from its source and gently pull open the DVD drawer in order to remove the stuck disc inside. Once that is done, power up the unit and press on the "eject" bottom so that the drawer can close itself.
Good luck.

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

Trying to copy a DVD--when I insert a blank DVD, it spits it out and asks me to insert another. I have tried with two different blank DVDs, and each time it spits it out without copying, and asks to...


1. your DVD blank may be rejected due to the program compatibility.
2. the DVD that is being copied was burn at a certain speed and this may have an affect on the
copy of the original.
3. the blank DVD should have the same capacity as the original or better that is if the
DVD blank has the capacity of 4.5 GB and the original is 8.5 GB then the copy has
reached it's capacity and will be ejected by the DVD burner.
I hope this helps. Have a great day.

Dvd drive won't open


you can try opening it with paperclip if it's stuck. Straighten the clip and locate a small pinhole on the drive it and insert the clip in. You might need to push the paperclip in an out a few times to eject the drawer.

I got a cd stuck in the cd/dvd drive for my gateway laptop- i dont know the model. tried to hit eject button and ejecting through computor and it will not open. what do i do?


All CDs & DVDs have a tiny hole on the drive tray.
Get a paper clip, straighten the paper clip and insert it into this hole and push the paper clip in gently, the tray will release and pop out, then you can remove your disc.
You can do this without the laptop being powered up or powered down.

VGC-RB30 DVD/CDR DRIVE


You actually perhaps using a non blank disc at that time. Burners don't really accept non writeable Discs. Check your CD first before burning. If you are using a rewriteable disc (CD-rw) that has files, it can burn and files will be overwritten but if you're just using a CD-r with files in it, the burner will eject and will tell you to insert a blank disc.
