Hi,

Error code F498 refers to "failure to process digital communication" which refers to solder failure of connectors, PCBs, laser eye and other major component interaction. It is a fairly common Panasonic problem.

A logical course of action is to present it to an authorized Service Center for appropriate action.

Your alternate options are:

  • Try a reset. Unplug from the mains for 30 minutes, hoping that it is just a system's glitch;
  • open the unit and check for any cold solder, flexible cable connectors and other electrical joints;
  • seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My dmr-e50 ca not play any disc it display dvd drive eror


What is the error code being displayed? is it U81 U61 or U99? U61 is likely to be a DVD drive error. U99 is an electrical problem, while U81 is a microprocessor feedback information error. Your best option is to submit this recorder to a qualified service technician in an authorised Panasonic workshop, for a quote, and a second opinion on the likely repair costs and/or parts involved. (it helps to be more specific when posting questions here about DVD drive faults so we can advise people properly on the best course of action to solve the problem (however a few consumers do not know what device error codes are and what they mean; this is understandable in many cases).

The cost to fix this unit depends where you go and whom you deal with. It is up to you, but be warned; if the unit needs a new DVD drive, this could prove expensive.

Hi
U99 is a fault code, from memory i believe it is a communication error between the dvd drive and its controller, either way the machine needs to be serviced.

Fault code F498 on panasonic VCR/DVD player HV-VHD1. DVD draw will not open.


as far as i understand, it is caused by dry joints - poor workmanship. Try taking the top off and pressing down on right-hand side the green circuit board with the dvd in standby. Then switch on. If that works then what i did was to take all the screws out and jiggle it then put all screws back except the one to the left of the board, next to the brown board. seems to work now. Tip found on another forum, no credit to me

Faut F489


This is for code f489 as well as f498 F498 means a problem with flash eprom IC; meaning that unit is unable to read the basic instructions from the eprom IC. Can be cuased by several; may simply be a "bad connection issue" at the eprom Ic or somwhere in the Bus line--defective Ic or corrupted information which may or may not be recovered with a "service recovery" disc.(not an end user procedure) First step; try resoldering Eprom ic being careful not to bridge pins. second would be to take the unit to a AUTHORIZED ONLY repair shop for a firmware or eeprom update. Good Luck
