Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ47V DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

At the last use the DVD player was plpaying and someone' shut it off. It now won't open, and it kept saying no disk found so I thought it was empty. BUT one disk of a series of 3 is missing. I believe it is in there.l Can't get the drawer to open. Is there a manual button I can press. The internet has alot of questions, very few answers and mostly indicates we need to buy another one. this unit has been used moderately for 3 years , that is maybe 7 hours a week. I really am not sure the motoe is running. The side with the VHS works fine though.

You can try 1 of 2 possible options;

1) while the unit is in standby (showing clock only) - on the main unit (not the remote) press [STOP] and [CH UP] button together - for 5 - 10 seconds - this should force the tray to eject any discs that may be in it.

or

2) you can do a hard/power reset - the hard reset - press and hold [POWER ON/OFF] button (again on main unit) for 10 - 15 seconds (this helps if the unit freezes or fails to respond to remote commands).

Other things you can try include; press and hold [CH UP] and [CH DOWN] buttons on main unit (again while unit is in standby) together to reset to factory defaults.

Or you can switch off at the wall, and wait an hour, then switch back on.

Let us assume a disc IS in the tray; try the above suggestions first before going down the expensive and heartbreaking road of either submitting this one to a service centre or buying another unit.

Emerson AV50 says ''NO DISK''


Hi, sounds like you have a dirty laser eye on the DVD player. The eye gets dirty and it won't read movies or function properly. I would recommend a DVD Cleaner CD. I would have you try this before I have you open the DVD Player to clean the Laser Manually. Please try this and Post the Result for me to Review. Thank you

Try resetting the unit. Push and hold the on/off button for 10+ seconds. --or-- Look for a reset button behind the drop down door, and gently depress it with a pen point for a couple of seconds. If this does not work, try calling Panasonic.

I have a Portble DVD player. Everytime that I put in a disk i get the same message. No Disk. I have hooked it up to the battery pack and also to the TV and I get the same message. What can I do to correct...


Mine was doing this also. In messing around with it, I found that if you open the lid and push the lid button (make the player think the lid is closed) so it will spin the disc with the lid open, I could hold the disc and prevent it from spinning. The red laser kept refocusing, and then shook like crazy! After shaking for about a second, I let it go and poof!, it started working again. Maybe a fluke, but I think when it shook it realigned the laser. My 2yr old drop this thing alot and I figured it was miss-aligned. Hope it helps someone.

DVD will not load/format new disk


I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.

System turning off randomly


I too had this same problem. It started last night and today has been shutting down every couple of minutes. I got out my manual and in the troubleshooting section there is a listing under smpton that says "The main unit is not working (Example: The power goes out or strange noise is heard.) The remedy says "Turn off the power and hold the STOP button for longer than 5 seconds." I tried this and it seemed to work, the unit did not shut off after a couple of mins the after maybe 10 mins it shut off. I did the reset function again and it worked for a bit then starting shutting down again. I called Samsung and they had me to unplug the unit and press and hold the power button for 10 secs while the unit was unplugged. They then had me to plug back in and put in a DVD. It came on and worked. it has now been over 15 mins and still has not shut off. Well I spoke too soon it is now shutting off again. called them back and they are having me ship it to them and they are going to fix it on their dime.

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.
