Question about Panasonic DMR-ES40VS DVD Recorder/VCR
Sadly, that could be the death knell on this unit as something may have broken internally; possibly rendering the unit U/S.
These can be extremely expensive to replace any fractured boards (and other broken parts) in - making the overall repair uneconomical. And in the event of any broken boards/parts replaced, there is no guarantee that the unit will be as reliable after that as when it was new.
If you decide to submit the unit to a service centre, be warned, if you tell them it fell to the floor, they may tell you the same thing as I did above (although they might not put it quite so nicely). Even if you convince them to take on the repair work, it may be expensive; more than the cost of a new DVD recorder.
Up to you, but save yourself the agony (and the expense) - bin this unit or keep it for parts (or try to find a similar WORKING unit on eBay to replace your broken one).
Accidents will happen; most times unavoidably. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
