Question about Panasonic DVD & Blu-Ray Players

4 Answers

DVD recorder DMR-ES15EB/EBL won't play or record DVDs. Was OK for playing until I tried to record then it gave a TV message to the effect "Non-recordable disc". Now the message is noREAD for any disc. I've tried a lens cleaner with no improvement.

Make sure you are trying with a brand new blank disc for recording. Also try reading a commercial DVD like a movie that you purchased or rented. Make sure you format the disc and that the write protect tab on the cartridge is not set.
What type or blanks are you using? DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R or DVD+RW?

If you still can't record or play after trying known good discs then there might be something wrong with your recorder. If it's still under warranty contact the dealer where you purchased the recorder for assistance or Panasonic at 1-800-211-7262.

The lens may have failed. I would suggest you have a tech look at it.

Check the unit if it was set into read only, & also the disc if your using a dvd ram check the notch could in write protect.

Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.

How to transfer Panasonic DMR-E80H recorded DVDs to computer


I have to agree with XELIAM regarding finishing the disk, under the DVD "FUNCTIONS" selection from the remote. I also use the SLYSOFT products to transfer my videos to what ever other mode of video I wish to have, whether iPOD (MP4), or DIVX (AVI) or loads of other options. Slysoft makes a GREAT product

Can not read disc


I mainly use my DVR to record TV shows on DVD-RAM discs (Panasonic brand or Maxell). I've had no problems with the DVD-RAM discs. However, today when I put a DVD-R disc in the recorder, I got an "Incompatible Disc" error message. I tried a second disc from the same set, and got the same message. I tried out some of the DVD-Rs that I recorded last year and I could read them. Tried a DVD-RAM. That was OK. So, I tried another DVD-R disc. That one is OK. I don't know if the problem is that these DVD-Rs are getting a little old (2 years??) or if the recorder is developing its own problems reading discs.

Cannot Play Commercially Produced DVDs (Panasonic DMR-ES40V)


Dear FixYa Team,

Thanks for your inquiry re my problem.

Since I posted, I THINK I may have solved my problem. I unplugged the unit for an hour or so, plugged it in again, and it DID play a "commercial" DVD that I had tried earlier. I don't know if this is a permanent solution -- we'll see. If not, I'll take the next step in seeking some help.

Thanks again.

Panasonic dvd recorder model dmr-e55eb/ebl. played dvd,no problem - ejected dvd - green/blue colouring appeared on TV which disappeared when dvd recorder switched off. since then unable to play dvds. ...


This is a problem with either the logic or the power supply. Without seeing the machine and taking measurements inside, I can't state for sure the exact problem. These are decent machines. I would suggest that you bring it to an authorized Panasonic service center for a repair estimate. Post the results here and we'll suggest the next steps.

i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!


get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems
