DMR-EH55 HDD ERROR

I CAN'T READ HARD DRIVE

Posted by on

  • mog604 May 19, 2009

    I have the same problem as well. I was about to watch a recorded program and the unit froze. Now the unit will no longer operate and HD DERR appears. All it does now is flash HD DERR and the disc compartment slides open and close. Besides the on/off button, nothing else functions. Is there anything I can do to make it work again? I would like to retrieve the videos I have saved. I have about 125GB of saved videos. I have heard about the HEX editor, but I'm not really familiar using that program. Is it possible to buy a similar unit and to transfer the drive to a working unit? If so, which one is compatible? Thanks

Likely a drive by question, but the answer is likely related to a dead drive. If unformattable, then replace the HDD with off-the-shelf replacement

Can you be a bit more specific? You cannot read the TV guide, instructions and other data or only the list of programs you ahve recorded?

L.S. How to reset Panasonic DMR-EH55 DVD Recorder / HDD Recorder to factory settings?


You can either go into menu (pressing 'FUNCTIONS' button on remote) and look for 'RESTORE DEFAULT SETTINGS' or similar heading, or you can (while unit is on) on the front of the unit (not the remote) press CH UP and CH DOWN buttons together for 5 seconds - the unit will switch to standby. Give either one a try. (refer to page 60 onwards in your user manual - these pages detail 'settings').

If you cannot find your manual, it is available for download (free) - http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Video/DVD-Recorders-Players/DVD-Recorders/Operating-Instructions/model.DMR-EH55S.O#ts

I hope this helps in some small way. Thanks for asking FixYa!

My dmr-eh55s will no longer transfer from the hard drive to the DVD in the high speed mode. It will in low speed mode (real time).


It sounds like the DVD-RAM drive is about dead. Panasonic did not make them to be very durable.

Panasonic sells replacements at a high cost.

Replacement drives may work from used models including:
DMR-ES15
DMR-ES25
DMR-ES45
DMR-ES46

Panasonic DMR-EH55 Ram Drive Problem


Do you mean you want to replace the hard drive in the unit? If so, I have one of these units and I installed a new PATA hard drive and then "prepared" it with a firmware update that is available from Panasonic's website. I tried to increase the capacity by installing a 500GB hard drive, and also a 300GB hard drive, but no matter what size I put in, after I initialized the new hard drive with the firmware disc I always only had 92 hours available to me. In fact there was never anything wrong with my unit, I was only trying to increase the capacity for recording - which I was never able to do. I did find that another 200GB hard drive I tried didn't actually work for some unknown reason, but the 500GB, the original 200GB and a 300GB hard drive worked no problem every time I swapped them around. Let me know if you need the link to Panasonic's download - it's easy to find.

Buy a used DMR-ES15, DMR-ES25, DMR-ES45, or DMR-ES46 with a good DVD drive and swap out your bad drive.

A problem with a disk after inicjalizing it in windows


I have swapped hard drives in my DMR-EH55 several times when I was trying to see if a larger hard drive would give me more recording time. After several days of playing around I was unable to increase it beyond 92 hours. Anyways, back to your question, I have lost the contents of my hard drive twice from swapping around and hooking up to my computer to try and copy contents, so in my experience I don't think you will be successful. Since this is an older post, perhaps you were and if so, please post solution.

PS - firmware update image is available from Panasonic's website if your unit is asking for lLD FVU

DMR-EH55 DVD recorder is not able to read DVDs any more


You purchase a dry DVD lens cleaner and put it inside the tray. It will clean it for you. If you take apart the drive to expose the lens, you are actually at risk of making it worse.
