Question about Panasonic DMR-EX75EB-S DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

Open Question

Faulty DVD Player

Hi Guys

I have a Panasonic DMR-EX75EB DVD/HDD recorder. It is 17 mths old. When I turn it on it make a 'clunk clunk' noise and a message flashes up on the screen implying that the disc cannot read/copy and says press pwr off to try again - there isn't even a disc in there, the display is showning that there is.

I can't use the DVD player at all. The HDD bit is working fine.

Any ideas

    I too have the same problem. It occurred after copying to disc from HDD. Message came up that "part of the last recording may be lost due to scratches, dirt or quality of disc". Since then dvd player thinks there is a disc in the tray and tries to read the disc with message "no read" resulting. DVD symbol also appears in display. Also first message above still occasionally appears after 2 weeks. I have tried a lens cleaner, but of course it can't read the disc. All other functions work. I have had the Panasonic recorder for 27 months. Much appreciate it someone has the answer.

SOURCE: DVD player/ recorder problems... PLEASE HELP!!!

I have now had two Panasonic recorders 3 years apart and both have gone down with this same fault.

It's a shame as they are a fantastic recorder, I would have thought Panasonic would have put this right by now. It now 5 years on since I bought my first one and it sounds as if they still have the same fault.

Why the hell can't they just fit a standard computer dvd drive that’s cheap to replace, and not this abortion they fit.

I was looking on E-bay for Panasonic recorders that where faulty and found around twenty.

ALL WITH THE SAME FAULT

"DVD drive faulty"

I’m now looking for a new one but don’t know what to do as I have a ton of discs that need to be finalized, may just forget about them and keep clear of Panasonic in future.

SOURCE: My DMR EX75EB it fails

This is one of several error codes generated by the main microprocessor IC which are tripped by corruption, preventing proper operation and which may require the processor to be reset (where practical) or replaced.

The U81 and U80 codes don't mean anything in particular because the corruption error could be caused by a number of different reasons. It does not point to any specific one fault. This is where the confusion sets in as to the origin of the 'error code' in any device.

U81 means (in technical terms) 'microprocessor communication malfunction' on the universal asynchronous receiver/transmitter' or 'microprocessor feedback information error'.

This is not something the user should undertake to repair themselves; it should really go to an authorised Panasonic repair centre. The cost depends on the parts used and the labour, however, it is not unfixable. You can always get a quote on this and a second opinion, then decide for yourself if it is economical or not.

I posted this 'advice' for this model previously. The DMR-EX75 and DMR-EX85 are prone to U81 - which is a common error code.

Testimonial: "Many thanks for your input, after speaking to Panasonic, you are correct, they tell me it would cost approx £100 to repair so its a bin job:-("

Panasonic DVD/HDD problem


Not yet WORZ. I had no luck on the email front and so went the paper route and so it's up to the postal service and the Customer Services dept at Panasonic UK.
As soon as I hear, I will let you know. Expect it to be a two week wait or more!
