    Hi. I'm having the same problem with my DMR-E85H in that it is continually stuck in a self check loop. Can't seem to find any suggestions other than expensive technical repairs. Does anyone have a solution to this problem??

    DHM 85H, Which I have had for about 3 years now has started to reset and carry out self check each time I try to record from HDD to DVD. Tried to format disk, use a ********* cleaner on lens but this has had no effect.

    Not only is it stuck in self-check, but I have a disc in there that I can't get out. I have only had this recorder for less than a year. PLEASE HELP!

This can usually be down to two things, a faulty PSU board which is going to be expensive and needs to be professionally repaired, or simply a faulty or dirty DVD has been inserted into the machine.

Try the following:
1. Hold down Standby and Eject buttons on front panel together for 60 seconds (until the recorder goes into standby mode).
2. Now hold down Eject button until it ejects the disc.
3. Now insert a different DVD disc and see if that cures the problem.

If that fails then it's probably a faulty PSU, and unless the recorder is under guarantee or warranty it will be too costly to repair.

DVD stuck on Panasonic DMR ES10 in eternal cycle of "self check"/"please wait"


My DMR ES10 was eternally in a "self check"/"please wait" cycle. Couldn't even turn it off normally. By pressing the "Power off" for 10 seconds it will turn off forcefully. Now, after it says "BYE" press the "CH UP" (on the recorder, NOT on the remote))+"STOP" (with the recorder turned off) for another 10 seconds. This will force the opening and we now can take the DVD off. Turn the DVD recorder ON and, if the problem is on the laser, because of dirt, etc it will work and we can now run a DVD cleaner. In this case, the machine was stuck just because the first thing it does is check the DVD inside, and because it can't and just keep trying, it will never do anything else, until we take the DVD off with it turned off.

Recorder keeps 'self checking' then taking dvd back to begining, although only on recordable dvd's, not rented. Are recorders worth repairing or are you better just buying another?


I have had a Panasonic DMR-E85 with this exact same problem you are describing. As I bought a Freeview Dual-tuner PVR I just bought a second-hand DMR-E55 as I liked the Panasonic interface. Two months down the line it is now exhibiting the exact same problems, except now as well as the continual self-check rebooting, it's also refusing to eject the disk. Booo. Time for me to buy a new DVD recorder again, and this time certainly not Panasonic... :(

Panasonic DMR-ES15 DVD recorder startup failure


The unit failed during self check, probably the power regulation board. A check by a qualified TV/VCR repair person is in order.

My machine goes into self checking mode and gets stuck.


If it's going into self-checking then either there is a problem with the drawer deck mechanism not being able to communicate with the logic board, hence the reason it stays in the self check. Contact your local Panasonis dealer to arrange a service engineer to perform a software update on the recorder as your current software could either be an older version or has been corrupted & needs to be updated.

Stuck in self check mode


Manually pull down the front shield, then somewhat forcefully pull down the inner shield and maybe two little white pins so the tray is exposed with nothing blocking it. Have someone plug the machine in while you are holding everything out of the way and the tray should start to open. Pull your fingers out quickly so you don't block the tray from sliding out.

AELFCHECK Problem with Panasonic DVD Recorder


Hi

This problem is associated with a regulator on the power board. It's an easy fix if you can use a soldering iron.

If not you may be able to get someone to repair it for you. I have posted instructions on how to replace the defective component.

Please note the instructions I have given refer to the DMR E55 but the E95H is much the same.

A self-check for these models can sometimes last for 3-7min's (sometimes longer) depending on how much recorded data is on your hard drive. Plus it checks all unrecorded space on your hard drive as well. Don't forget that it must check 200Gig. If it self checks for longer than 20-30mins turn off at the wall and let cool down. Try again in an hour or so and it should rectify itself. If it continues to self-check for longer than 20-30mins refer your machine to an authorized technition

1)Press and hold [skip reverse] [Time Slip] [Eject] buttons for about 10 sec
2)Display will show 'L1 TEST'
