Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

3 Answers

Unsupported discs Hello. I have this unit and have had a problem with a couple of discs that I recorded on it. I just recorded a program last night and hit stop, only to have an error message appear. Then when I attempted to hit playback an unsupported disc error message appears! I had recorded a couple of other programs on the same disc with no problems. Anyone have any ideas on how to save such discs? Thanks!

It's my understanding that Panasonic DVD Recorders will only play an NTSC DVD recorded in "true" NTSC, ie 525 lines. Sometimes when you convert or copy an NTSC disc the copy will be a "quasi" NTSC disc, i.e. "PAL 60" (625 lines) which most DVD players will cope with, but Pana's need to see a DVD in the true native format. So try copying the film again as a "true NTSC disc, 525 lines" without converting it to "PAL 60" along the way.

I think either the disc might have got scratches in that part where that program is stored or you might have not let it complete the task ...

just try recording again some program in another disc & tell me

    if you face the same problem then the lens might have becoming weak ..
    so by this you are facing the problem ...

    if you are good at opening then just open the player & clean the lens with the lens cleaner then better to have the try to record after that ....

    if you face the same problem then just replacing the lens of the player solves the problem ......
    any way the lens can be replaceable & they are available at the cheap rates .....

Hi there

I think your DVD Player could have been damaged while it was in storage, this sounds like there is a problem with the lens (laser), i am going to suggest that you take it to a repairman and ask him to fix it or buy a new laser for your DVD Player attempt to fix it yourself.

If your DVD player is still under warranty, you should take it back to the retailer and have it repaired or refunded.

This could also be caused by "un-married" Player and Disc, if you bought the DVD Player in one country and bought the DVD's in a different country, this could also cause the problem. If the DVD's are copied, that could also cause it.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as Unsupported discs - 5692f33.png if it helped you.

Kind regards

If you cant play a real dvd in it, the laser is prob out of allignment or broken, if its just dvd that you burned, try changing disc type, there is +R and -R , also if that does not work try a different program to burn discs ? good program is convert X to dvd, not free, unless your good at torrents :)

It will not record. it is programed.


Is it the dvd or the vcr mode that will not record? What source are you recording from - ie are you trying to record a channel that the tuner can read or is it coming from a set top box? Is the clock properly set for timed recording? This unit only has an NTSC (analog) tuner. If you are recording OTA from a converter box, make sure the correct channel/input is selected for the unit to see the content from the converter box.

If it's the dvd, make sure that there is sufficient space on the disc. Also check that the disc is not finalized and is compatible. Try a different brand. Is the machine recognizing discs properly? If it isn't reading any disc, then the tracking might be off or the laser needs cleaning. Try a cleaning disc but the unit may need service. DRM issues may apply for content from a set top box and block the recording to DVD.

If it is the VCR, then make sure that the tape has sufficient space left and that the write protect tab has not been removed from the cassette. (If it has and you do want to overwrite it, put tape over the opening.)

For timed recordings, make sure you turned off the unit after programming the schedule. You disrupt the timer when the unit is on. Power failures will also clear the programming if they last more than 30 seconds.

The unit was manufactured by Funai for Philips. You can get the manual here: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx . Search for the model number to get the PDF.

I hope these ideas help.

Hello, Dustin / unsupported discs issue


Hi Brad

Before you attempt to purchase a new lens or a new unit, i would suggest that you buy a "Len Cleaner Disc" to clean your lens, if that doesn't help then you should either repair or buy a new lens.

To repair or install a new lens, you will need a service manual(Let me know if you need one.) Then you can do it yourself.

Please also remember that if you attempt to open or repair the player in anyway, it will void your warranty so i think you should take it to Panasonic and have the unit replaced or refunded.

Thank you for using FixYa. Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution as FixYa if it helps you.

Presidian dvd recorder pdr 3222


Have had the same problem with my Presidian3222 for the last year, if I recorded something it would come back as invalid disc or blank disc or would not close disc out right, got so damn mad almost took a hammer to it last night, unplugged it like clicky said, did no good, thought cable co may have been sending single to screw up recording, but today took camcorder and tried to record something, same thing which seemed to let the cable co off the hook.
the following seemed to have fixed the problem, first open the player then unplug it, close the drawer 1/2 way, then I took compressed air and blew inside the player to clean the laser after that I have been able to record 3 movies and close the disc properly and finalize the disc properly, I even had 50 new disc made by sony that recorded kept saying were invalid, reads them fine now, I hope this helps everyone, because I was on the edge of putting this thing in the trash last night.

I have three Panasonic DVD recorder/Vhs combos and I get the same problem from time to time...it may be the disks you are using.  Mine absolutely hate Sony disks.  I have the best luck with TDK or Maxell.  You also must clean your unit frequently, if you do alot of recording.  I use my units daily.

Hope this helps
