Question about Panasonic DMR-EH57 HDD Recorder Player

1 Answer

Won't play! The machine is about 18mnths old, out of warranty of course. It seems to behave as tho there is a disc in the drive when there isn't, it makes a series of chirping noises for a few seconds when the tray is closed regardless of a disc being used or not and then says NO READ...the small 'disc in' indicator on the front is always on, it flashes for a few seconds when a disc is put in then stays on.

You should use a Lens Cleaner (You can get it from any Computer Shop or Electronic Store) and clean your Machine's Lens with it as directed.

All of my clean games that i put in dont work why


to solve this problem, you need to take out the hard drive. the ps3 hard dirve can be hot after you play games for a while. the DVD ROM probably won't function when the hard drive is over heated. the hard drive should be put in cool place. you should let the hard drive remain in a cool spot temporarily. the place where you put the hard drive should not be exposed in direct sunlight. you can open window and let the air come in while playing. you can switch on the fan and turn it against the hard drive. in this way, the heat in the hard drive will quickly dissipate away.
sometimes, the DVD ROM is not functioning properly because of loose cables. checked the cables to see if they plugged in properly. you can plug out the cables and replug them. after replugging them, you can turn on your console to see if it's working again. just make sure that the disc tray isn't overly dirty or filled with dust, this can cause the reader to not work. always wipe the disc tray and the disc that you're using before playing.
if this didn't work, you have to send it to sony. you have to pay delivery cost and repair cost. if it's still under warranty, you only have to pay the delivery cost.

thank you for choosing fixya.

Just changed the disc drive on my xbox 360 now it wont play games only dvd can anyone help thanks


the disc drive on the xbox 360 has a key that matches it to the motherboard. If the key isn't there, or is incorrect, the xbox won't read games. If you (hopefully) still have the original drive, you might be able to get someone to help you with jungleflasher to copy the key over. Good luck!

I have a 19" LCD


Here's what I would do in your shoes:

1)Try several DVDs, to make sure it isn't an isolated case.
2)Check the firmware version of the TV against the newest one available from Polaroid's website.
3)If you are in warranty, call Polaroid, this is obviously an issue with their TV and will have to offer you options to repair or replace this unit.

I'm sorry you are having trouble with your DVD player.

Playstation3 won't play games but will play dvds


that is an internal problem that will most likely have to be fixed by an expert, it has to do with you disc drive, which isn't usually a major fix, so it shouldn't cost you much.

Cd will not go in the ps3 its an old model


First make sure everything is plugged in correctly and that the power is on. Afterwards, make sure there isn't another disc in the drive by pressing the eject button. If there isn't anything in there and power is on and it still will not accept discs, then your playstation 3 needs servicing. Call Sony Customer Service.

My xbox 360 is not reading discs. it dosnt seem to even register that there is a disc in it


Hello! if the console behaves as if there is no disc present in the disc tray, then most likely the drive was not able to detect the media inserted due to the lens was mis aligned. Becaus of the spinning motion of the drive it creates vibration because of these moving parts. It is a risk tearing down the system and re-aligning the lens, you can call Microsoft Xbox Support for it to be fixed and its $159if it's out of warranty.

Drive won,t play discs and sometime won,t reconize that a disc is


If the "bad" disks work fine in some other DVD-player, then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new DVD-writer.

Or, if your current DVD-player is under the manufacturer's warranty, exercise the warranty, to get it repaired/replaced.

It sounds like the recorder will only record the dvd+ format, which does NOT need finalizing to play in other machines. ( you can record a dvd- , play it back on the machine you recorded it on, but need to finalize it to play on other machines)
The other units may only accept dvd-.(dvd- being the same format as you would buy or rent a film on)
One option, record the dvd on a dvd+rw (if possible) then copy to a dvd-r using your computer. The average use of a dvd+ is 1000 recordings.
There are many free disc burning suites available to download. Just google "free disc burning software" and take your pick.
I use 1 called "magix goya base" for copying disc to disc and "NTI" for burning to HDD and then to disc, if you only have use of 1 drive.
