Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a DVD burner/Video Recorder by Panasonic and one day after working fine the DVD drive won't recognize ANY media - it even thinks that there's a DVD in there when there isn't! It would cost me about what a new one would to fix and it's 2 years old anyway. So - is there ANY way that I could tinker with it to see if I can get it working again? I even tried dust-off to see if something was covering a sensor.....

    This is a Panasonic DMR-ES46V. I have tried rebooting it, unplugging it, all kinds of media both blank and pre-recorded - even the RAM disk that came with it - nothing works. It makes 3 high hums and one low one (which it's never ever done before) and then that same sequence once again - then says the disk is unreadable - even when the drive is empty. SOMETHING has to be in there!!????

    That would be great IF it would even recognize that DVD cleaner!!!!!!!!!!!

    Already attempted to use a cleaning disk - sorry forgot to add that in my original post. It won't even recognize that there is a DVD of ANY KIND inside it!!!!!!!!

Your dvd lens power is weak or may be faulty so it need replacement. if your dvd is under warranty period then it can be replaced for free of cost.

You can try first using a CD cleaner to clean the optics of it, then if still doesn't work you can try updating the firmware of it if there's any available one from the manufacturer..

Hope that helps........

    There's really a possibilty that the optics of this device is already damage if you already update the firmware if there is you need to replace the unit now....



    Good luck....

What a story ! Clean your laser eye with Rubbing Alcohol and a Q-Tip. Down updates to your Recorder from Panasonics Website., and install in your Recorder. Order your replacement parts from Panasonic but I do doubt you will need them.

Line Of Distortion Along The Bottom of an Em20 Burned Disc


It's possible there is either a codec problem with your computer player. I would recommend trying a player such as VLC Media Player, to see if that works. If that isn't it, what kind of TV's are you watching the video on? Are they "tubed" or flat screen? If they are tubed, you wouldn't be able to see the line at the bottom like you do when you play the video on the computer.

Pinnale Dazzle DVD recorder doesn't recognize VCR


On the start up of the instant DVD recorder program, you can either use the "let the wizard guide you" or "advance mode"

1. Select source:
you should select the options:

Video standard NTSC (Because this is the default in our region)
Video composite - if you are using RCA (red, yellow and white cables)
S-video - if you are using the cable with several pins in it.

2. Select Burner
You should select the options:
Hard disc folder - if you will be saving the content in your hard drive, the format of this files are DVD such as VOB and IFO etc.
TSST - _ _ _ _ - if you will selecting your DVD drive.

(If you have selected your DVD Burner and you cannot click "next" to proceed to the Third option,
this means that your DVD drive is not able to burn a DVD)

3. Select menus
It must be NO

4. Recording
select total recording time (make sure that dazzle is selected in the "select source" to set the total recording time)

DMR-EH75V DVD Recorder


ekimt,

Yes, it would not recognize any type of disc. The disc icon was always present on the display even though no disc was inserted. Also, mine went out while recording from HDD to DVD. Panasonic had mine repaired in two business days and it' s working great.

Drive won't recognize discs


the blank media must be compatible with the burner drive that you're using... meaning if the drive is for CD-R you can only use CD-R blanks not CD+R. if the drive is CD-/+R then you can use either CD-R or CD+R
