Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

2 Answers

Recently, I've been trying to record tv programs on my Panasonic DVD Video Recorder DMR-E50, as I have done for many years. However, lately, whenever I would program it to record a tv program using the timer programming, it would come on and immediately stop, appearing to be frozen. When I would try to turn the system on, it would not respond to the remote or power button on the system. I would have to unplug it, wait a couple of minutes, then plug it back in. It would come on and the "Recovery" message would appear. I tried a new DVD-RAM disk (the kind I've always used) with the same result. I then tried formatting the new disk. Formatting was successful, but when I tried to record on it, I got a message that the disk was not recordable. I tried another new DVD-RAM disk. The machine recorded as programmed, but will not play the recorded programs. When I try to play the recorded programs, I get an error message that the disk is unformatted. However, when I try to format the disk I get another error message saying that the disk is unformattable. Is my machine simply worn out or can it be fixed? Please help.

    The first expert's response makes little sense to me. I am not an expert technician, just a home user. Thanks.

Hi, I see similar one a lot in my shop, what has happened is your laser head assembly, and or quadrant detector has gone faulty, this is just so common. To make it work properly again you will need to replace these faulty parts. This can be an expensive repair depending on the cost of the laser head assembly, and labor.
What you need to do is take it to an authorised Panasonic repair agent, and ask them for a "Quote" for the repair. This way you can make a decision as to repair or replace.

Seems that you have done the best and nothing more to confirm the limits of a DIY job. It seems to me that the memory back or the micro processor/ inferface has errros that have crepted in with wrong compatibility, the reason that the set hang up with a slight provocation.
You can remove and push back plugs, tighten cords, look for any breach of contacts or pasive components.
I seems that possibilities in the mother board are many and can be relative except if we can swap a new board to test..

Hallo, I'm new here, I hope someone can help me with my problem. I have a Panasonic DMR-HS2 DVD recorder, and I've had no problems yet, till recently. I had programmed several TV programs. W


It might well have crashed!
I suggest you unplug or turn off the power to the unit and leave it off for a while to see if it corrects itself when you power up again.
Keep a look out for any codes in the display when it powers up. Was there a disc in the drive when you shut it down? That might be contributing to the problem if there is.
If the hard drive has failed it still might be possible to remove it and recover the contents, before fitting a new one. There are the same ones you buy for home PC's afterall.

Hi Leah,

Good description and good job in narrowing down the problem. The lens is the remaining common denominator.

You need to get a CD/DVD lens cleaner. It should have a disk and a bottle of cleaning solution. They are available in the electronics dept of most chain stores.

A couple drops of cleaning solution on the feathery cleaning element attached to the disk, insert the disk into the machine and hit play. Takes just a couple seconds.

Best regards
Mike

Pixilation when playback of dubbed and homemade DVDs


As mentioned on the Jan12 e-mailed Panasonic - surprise, no response! However on Panasonic's web site drill down to firmware upgrades for DVD machines. There is an upgrade available for the E50P. Straight forward fix, download to computer, expand it and copy to a CD-R. Put CD-R into E50 and recorder will check and update firmware. I did this on the 13th and have recorded two commercial free movies and both have played back perfectly after finalization. Time will tell. Hope this helps. Golferdon
