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

How do I remove a stuck DVD?


It sounds like your problem isn't the dvd is stuck, since it seems to be spinning up, it sounds more like your ejection system has stopped working for some reason.
To fix either you are going to have to remove the outside case of the dvd player and expose the internal chassis. There are anywhere from 4 to 8 screws holding it on on the bottom and back of the unit, Make sure the dvd player is unplugged before you remove the cover.
Once you have the cover off, if the dvd is simply stuck, you should be able to see what the issue is; is it misaligned in the housing was it inserted incorrectly, are there in fact 2 dvds in the player, etc, etc. Gently remove the dvd and replace the case and enjoy.
If you can't see any reason for it to be stuck it may be the ejection system. The eject system will have a belt and sprocket system to move the tray or push out the dvd depending on the player. Make sure the belt is on the wheels correctly and that the sprockets mesh properly. If you can't see anything wrong try testing the ejection system with the case off.
Make sure you don't have any objects in or touching the dvd player, you don't want to short out any of the components if a screw fell into the dvd player onto the mother board, etc. Plug the dvd player back in, make sure you don't touch the inside and try to eject the dvd. Watch the ejection system and you should be able to figure out what is going wrong. Once you have figured it out unplug the unit and put the items back together. If you can see that something is broken then you will have to determine if you can have it fixed or if it wouldn't be cheaper to simply ditch that unit and purchase a new one.
Hope this helps.

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.

DISC DRAWER WILL NOT OPEN


First, start with power cycling the player. Turn off the player and disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. Leave it unplug for about 5 minutes. Turn the player back on and try to open the drawer.

If same problem occur, then follow the steps below:

1. Turn off your DVD player. You do not want to risk electrical shock while working with it.

2. Locate your DVD player's manual Eject button. It is usually a small hole located underneath the DVD drawer.

3. Insert a stiff wire-such as a paperclip or safety pin-into the hole. Push gently and the drawer should open partway. Gently pull the drawer the rest of the way open.

4. Remove the DVD and see if there is a problem with it. Most DVD player drawers get stuck when a DVD is warped or the label is starting to peel. If the DVD is warped, discard it. If the label is peeling, remove the label.

5. Turn your DVD player back on. If it gets stuck again on a different DVD, then the problem may be with your DVD player rather than with your DVDs.

Good luck!

Have the Samsung DVD-AR650. When I insert a blank


My last recommendation, before seeking a replace or repair; would be to run a cleaner disk. Optical drives can be affected by dust on the optical block lens or dust on the disk itself. Sometimes a dirty lens can even cause your drive to eject the disk when you try to read it. It is recommended you clean your lens every 3 months in an office environment, or once a month if you use the drive in an industrial environment. They range in price from $3 to as high as $130. In such an

DVD tray won't open


Look for a small pin hole in the front of the DVD player. Insert a pin into the hole to open the tray.
Also try right clicking the DVD icon, click 'eject', then insert the pin into the hole.
If the door only opens partially, grab it and pull it open. Then insert a blank DVD into the tray, then see if the tray will open automatically with the disk in the tray. If so, then keep a DVD in the tray at all times.

Magnavox DVD/VCR player stuck in progressive scan mode


Right, mine was stuck for a couple of weeks and i tried lots of different things. What worked for me was plugging it out and in again. Press the power switch and then just before the tv switches from normal mode to dvd recorder press the eject button. However, I pressed it a few time so not exactly sure which one worked.
The burned DVD is now in a thousand pieces at the bottom of my bin!
Good Luck!
