Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My Panasonic DVD Video Recorder (model DMR-E85H) sometimes goes into a long period of self check mode (turning itself on or off) when trying to play DVD's and sometimes using the hard drive before it will eventually run normally until the next time I put some new DVD's in. It also will not record a DVD

    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!

    The machine stops and goes to self check

    This problem was solved by Randychev. Do a little searching for his solution. It worked for me but on a diferent set of capacitors. I went to Radio Shack and replaced the bad parts and the problem wos fixed. He even gives you pictures to explain what to do precisely. Good luck!

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

    Dmr e85 will not start up

    Hi Audi,
    Try unplugging the hdd & then turn on the dvd recorder & wait for about 5 minutes.
    Then unplug the dvd recorder & plug in the hdd & turn back on the dvd recorder to see if that fixes the problem.
