    If I try to copy from Hard drive to DVD it goes back to self test, almost as if the power supply has cut out.

Check the power supply capacitors.  They tend to leak and go faulty.  If so, replace them.

Often the 4pin 12V Regulator/Switch Fails in the Power Supply
and the HDD has the 5V but no 12V
Therefore the HDD cannot Work
Secondly the Part is not Expensive
Discuss the Repair with a Repair Shop

Make sure you have the latest firmware installed.

You can download the DMR-E85.EXE file from Panasonic, burn it to a CD-R, put it in your machine and close. The program will install automatically. Make sure you read the install instructions completely first.

You must replace the inside "str" sheet feeding and condenser close. Everything back to normal. :-)

My dvd recorder dmr e85 h panasonic dont rec dont play movies and dont acces to hard drive what is the problem


A DVD Recorder needs to play before it can record. Not accessing the hard drive as well indicates a problem with the power supply inside, more than likely. Time for a reputable repair shop.

Pan. dmr-e85h turned itself on, self-check


Open case and look for failed capacitors, which are cylindrical and will have a bulging top and a yellow/gold substance leaking out. If this is the problem, search for previous solutions that mention "solder capacitor C1260" for the DMR-E85. I had a similar 'no power' problem with my DMR-E55 and my son and I were able to fix it Sunday. Not hard to do and mine is working again!

My Panasonic keeps on doing selfcheck and restarting


Whilst the unit is switched OFF, press and hold STOP (black square) and Channel Up ( /\ ) on the unit simultaneously for 5-10 seconds. This will cause the tray to open.
