SOURCE: DMR-E95H doing self check for up to an hour

Your problem may be Panasonic's common capacitor failures. Open case and look for capacitors with bowed out top and yellow substance. Replace both with higher rated capacitors from Radio Shack. Will need some soldering skills. Look on this site for "solder c1260 c1261"

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.

AELFCHECK Problem with Panasonic DVD Recorder


Hi

This problem is associated with a regulator on the power board. It's an easy fix if you can use a soldering iron.

If not you may be able to get someone to repair it for you. I have posted instructions on how to replace the defective component.

Please note the instructions I have given refer to the DMR E55 but the E95H is much the same.

DMR-55E dvd recorder timer fault


Hi there,

This is a common problem with this particular model. I can tell you what the fault is but unless you feel confident in using a soldering iron, the repair is best left to someone who is.

Ok...the fault you describe is caused by failure of IC001. This is a voltage regulator on the power board. You can identify the regulator as it is fixed to along thin metal strip near the middle of the board. It gets very hot during normal operation and will fail after a couple of years. The metal strip offers very little heat dissipation so the regulator operate in excess of its limits and therefore fails.

You need to take the lid off, remove the board which is mounted on the right hand side of the unit and replace the faulty regulator.

To remove the board, remove the fixing screw above the power connector on the back of the recorder, then the 4 fixing screws that secure the board. Next carefully remove the multi-connector that connects the board to other circuitry and lift the board clear.

A new regulator type STRG 6353 and can be obtained from several online suppliers. The old regulator can be removed by unscrewing the fixing screw, cuttiing the 5 pins with wire cutters. Then using a soldering iron, carefully removing the residual pins from the printed board making sure the print is not damaged.

Use some heatsink compound on the back of the new component, this will help it to dissipate heat more easily, use an additional heatsink if you can, which will help to prolong the life of the new regulator, then tightly secure it in position before carefully soldering the 5 pins.

Check that you have soldered it correctly without any shorted pins or tracks and reassemble the unit. I have repaired dozens of these successfully with exactly this fault.

Mains voltages can be lethal so always remove the power plug before doing any work like this and be sure of your own ability. If you're not confident in tackiling this, get someone to do it. Whatever you do, don't ditch the unit for such an easy to fix fault!

From your user name, I guess you're a radio amateur, so you should be on home territory.........

try other types of media- it's possible there's a malfunction in the motor drive electronics.

It usually means that if it doesn't record you don't have a blank DVD in the slot. Hope this helps =)
