Hello,

The reason the player keeps showing there is a disc in it while there is none is because the lens is either weak or bad, that is why it also keeps showing no disc.

The solution to the problem is either for you to replace the lens or use a lens cleaner to clean the lens.
To replace the lens, all you have to do is to open the unit up with a screwdriver, you will have access to the lens directly, then you can replace it with the new one.

Be very careful in order not to damage any component in the player.

Take care and good luck

No read on my 2008 panasonic dvd recorder DMR-EZ485V


Insert a lens cleaning disc into it and let it play. If this do not help you, the optical pickup unit to your playder is faulty, and should be replaced.

DMR-EZ48V does not recognise Sony DVD+RW disks


Hello
If there are some writing errors in data, or sctraches, Sony sets won't read the disc well; especially to DVD+RW discs. OK.

The problem is it says non recordable disc cant read those are the Panasonic discs that came with it how much is a new laser if i need one


I love these sorts of problems. The typical estimated cost to replace the laser (which may also contain the spindle motor in the same block - as one part) and labour including alignment, firmware, etc. is around $200 - $300 approximately at an authorised Panasonic service centre. You would need to take the unit to a repair centre for a quote on the relevant repairs/parts etc., involved. This way you can make a decision as to whether or not to go further.

However, if the discs you got with the recorder are meant to be recordable, and it can't record them, chances are the laser could just be dirty (factory dust if you bought it new or general dust if you got it secondhand) or it may need refocusing/aligning, or the discs are defective.

These are good units, but keep in mind the DMR-E55 is a 2004 model and does not feature a built in HDD or digital tuner - it is not unfixable though. The other thing you can do which is cheaper, as well as using a DVD lens cleaner disc, is to use a different brand of blank DVD-R/RWs - it might not like the discs you got with it. Have you tried different discs? have you tried to play a shop-bought DVD movie in it? if so, does it read the disc?

Try the lens cleaner disc and different blank DVDs first. If neither fixes the issue, consider the above option - take it to a workshop for analysis/quote.

When I try to record a show. There is no picture on the disc when I'm done. Its just a white noise screen. I finalize the disc too. there is no prompt to tell me to format the disc.


If the disc playes back then the problem is not with the DVD unit. In order to record white noise, the channel selected for record is probably not tuned in. Try recording the same channel on to video tape and see what results you get.

Cannt play/record DVD's - keep getting "no read" error sfter inserting disk - nothing works - tried brand new discs to record on and even a new movie on disc! How do I correct no read error on...


Depending on the formats of the discs you tried, and assuming they are the correct ones for this machine, it sounds very much like a defective DVD drive and/or software within the unit. If it is under warranty take it to an authorised service agent/workshop for assessment to see if it needs a new drive or not. If it isn't reading any discs, and the unit is brand new, it would most likely be the drive which would be at fault.

DMR-EZ48V- DVD drive not working


Check Panasonic.com for Firmware updates. If it has a reset button reset it. Take off the cover remove dust and lint, also clean laser eye with rubbing alcohol. DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LASER LENS IF YOU PLUG IT IN, DURING THE OPERATION.

DVD Code Problem No FVU


You need to install or update the Firmware. Go to www.panasonic.ca and search your model. You will then need to download the firmware for your player and burn it/mount it as an ISO file on to cd. Just follow the instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.

It took me about 25min, but it is working fine now.
