We need to narrow down where the problem lies. Even without finalizing
the disc, you should be able to play back the recording. Can you do
this? If you can play back the recording, the problem exists in the
finalization stage and we'll need to concentrate there. Please update
this and we'll proceed to the next step.

Same problem. Contacted Panasonic. Technician indicated that there is a problem between the CPU and the timer. The unit is three years old and out of warranty, so he offered Panasonic's service at $120 for labor plus any parts.
So I gave it one more try. I pressed and held the REC on the Power button for about 10 seconds, which reset the unit. Then I was able to play a DVD and eject it.
Hope this helps with your unit.

This is happening because your DVD is NOT all region, you need to change the Code.

Mechanical fault, usually caused by oxidisation of the mode switch - creating increased resistance between its wiper and its internal contacts. Try cleaning the mode switch (under the VCR mechanism on the main board) using a commercially available electronic cleaner (after first unplugging unit from power point, and carefully removing top and front covers), rotating the switch wiper gently in each direction, let it sit for a few minutes, refit the mechanism, ensuring all is reconnected to the board, plug unit into power, test.
The other option if the cleaning doesn't work, is to order and replace the mode switch with a new one - these are not expensive parts, and should be available from Panasonic directly. Make sure you quote the model number of your unit to the spares supplier before obtaining any replacement parts, including the mode switch as required.
BUT: try the simplest and cheapest option (cleaning the mode switch) first. See how you go.
