Question about Panasonic DMR-E85H DVD Recorder
NO matter if I unplug it for a week. It still says please wait. What can I do?
I had the same problem a few months ago - the fix was what gorickhoward mentioned. Two capacitors from radio shack and a $6 soldering kit made it better than new.

Just picked my unit up yesterday. They replaced the capacitors. Total cost under $65.00

FOUND CAPACITORS C1270 AND C1271 TO BE DAMAGED. REPLACED CAPACITORS AND MY MACHINE IS UP AND RUNNING. TOTAL COST: $3.00.

This machine has problems with the power supply board that can cause a continuous please wait on system check or please wait triggered by trying to dub to DVD-R. The first problem is likely to occur with the older power supply boards and the DVD dub problem on the later boards. The bad capacitor problem was on the earlier power supply boards. The following link is to the solution for this http://www.fixya.com/support/t216825-dvd_recorder_frozen_please_wait_display The later power boards have a voltage regulator problem and the fix for this is at http://www.rbjtech.net/electrical/e85/e85.htm#0 You will notice from the photos that the early and later boards look different so it's easy to see which one you have. I replaced the voltage regulator in my machine and it now works like new.
