SOURCE: DMR E55-P will not read DVD-R
Thank you for the information. Sorry that you are having such problems.
Nearly all the problems on ths DMR E55 are due to a faulty power board. The greatest load on the power supply is when the unit first reads discs and also when finalizing. Sometimes the unit cannot read discs and sometimes it continuously self checks.
Try replacing IC001 on the power board. This is a 5 pin regulator #STRG6353. This component gets very hot and the heatsink is poor. When I replace these, I use a larger heatsink and some heatsink paste which helps to prolong the life of the component. If you look at the regulator, you will see by the colour of the circuit board that it gets very hot. It fails after two or three years in all DMR E55s.
Be careful when you take the old regulator out because the print can lift away from the circuit board.
I have posted full instructions on how to replace the STRG6353 >HERE<
Hope this helps

I have now had two Panasonic recorders
3 years apart and both have gone down with this same fault.
It's a shame as they are a fantastic recorder, I would have thought Panasonic would have put this right by now. It now 5 years on since I bought my first one and it sounds as if they still have the same fault.
Why the hell can't they just fit a standard computer dvd drive that’s cheap to replace, and not this abortion they fit.
I was looking on E-bay for Panasonic recorders that where faulty and found around twenty.
ALL WITH THE SAME FAULT
"DVD drive faulty"
I’m now looking for a new one but don’t know what to do as I have a ton of discs that need to be finalized, may just forget about them and keep clear of Panasonic in future.

Judging from product reviews it seems that this is a fairly unreliable unit. About the only thing you can do to possibly improve performance is to clean the laser lense. There are commercially available cleaners for CD/DVD players. The best way to clean the lense is to disassemble the unit and use a cotton swab with alcohol. This may be difficult for someone who doesn't have experience disassembling electronic devices.

I just ran into the same issue- 9 times out of 10 it's the disc- you have to be VERY CAREFUL when buying discs tthat say CDR or CD-RW but they have to say AUDIO or MUSIC on the packet - remember there are diuffernt linds of blank discs out there and they all do different jobs- read the above again to be clear
