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

1 Answer

The blimming dvd player

Tom Tom you never guess what .......

I am sitting here at 10.45pm typing this mail whilst watching Eastenders on my Panasonic HDD DVD recorder (fanfare of trumpets playing in the background).

I cannot believe that I have it back - fixed and with all my stuff still on the hard drive - I am well chuffed.

I have a copy of the estimate the repair place sent to Panasonic and it totalled £308!!!!! My only slight niggle (which I didn't have the nerve to ask about) was wether or not I get my £25 deposit back - I thought it was a bit cheeky. Not only have they fixed it they have also done some firmware updates (whatever they are) but they sound good.

Any news on yours yet???? If they fixed mine then that surely means that they will fix yours don't you think (might cost you £25 mind)

Keep me posted, I will keep my fingers crossed for you.


PS I have an audition for the new Dom series next week! Worzel's Wangerlings!

    Hi Tom

    Looks like you will be up to all hours!

    I have read others messages and it is a little worrying, but I reckon the trouble is that these days gadgets have so much stuff on them nowt is gonna last long!

    I actually bought my bit of kit of Digital Direct, it cost me £260, so I am a little suprised that they fixed it for £308 - would have been cheaper for them just to give me a new one.....

    Not sure what the moral of the story is - possibly there isn't one, it is all just luck of the draw I guess.

    Best of luck with your player - let me know if I can be of any help - but I think it is safe to say you should be able to get yours fixed ok, if not I'll take it to my local place and 'kick ***' again!

    Byee for now

Ta Worz for the gen,

Unfortunately I am trying to transfer all my stuff off the old machine and on to its 'new' bigger brother (250Gb). So. You work out how many days it'll take to transfer 80 hours???

Great news with your machine and it all sounds very promising. Chance your arm and ask for your deposit back. I would!

Have you been reading all the other stuff on Fixya about people buying other machines to replace old ones and having the same problems years later? Fingers crossed my new machine won't go the same way. Apollo 2000 did a deal and beat a low price courtesy of the internet. It did cost £200 plus, but I'm happy and will be even more chuffed if I get the other one back and 'upgraded' like yours.

All the best with Dom. I'll let you know how I get on.

Create another DVD, using different type of disc from the one they are using. Some times DVD/Video players just don't recognize some discs not because there is any problem with them (players).

Will not play any DVD

I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.

I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.

The manual gives little help:

My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.
