20 Most Recent Panasonic PVD4744 DVD Player/VCR Questions & Answers


I may have bad news for you. Here's my story with the PVD4744S.

I watched over an hour of a DVD-video disc one night, no problems. The next night, I played only the intro; then the DVD player gave a message, "This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert another disc." Thereafter, I couldn't play any of several DVDs.

The manual gives little help:

My disappointment is exacerbated by the declining availability of DVD/VHS players with an RF modulator. Maybe Panasonic should create a repair kit for aging devices.

If you have sound knoledge in electronics, and experience to repair electronic printed circuit boards, you can troublehoot the problem to your player. The power supply regulator board should be troubleshooted. In most cases, this board has to be replaced as card basis.

It really depends on the problem. I assume since you used a head cleaning device that the tapes are playing, but not clear correct?
Although tape cleaners like the one you used can help, they are only useful for minor problems and when used on a regular basis.
To really clean your VCR head completely you will need to remove the outer shell. After you have the cover off you will be able to see the reader head. Using Q-tips and rubbing alcohol wipe the surface clean and wipe lightly. You should be able to see a bit of discoloration on the Q-tip. Make sure to wipe off any residue with a clean dry Q-tip. While your inside blow off any dust that might be on the laser on the DVD player.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything more regarding this.

I bet you $120.00 you did not have a 1000VA UPS on it. If I was right, you can pay me now, and I can send you one.

You need a new TDVD-VCR.....They are so cheap now to replace...just replace it.

The thinner they are the faster they blow...by the way they have a computer in there. You are lucky nothing else blew

The power LED blinking ten times is indicative of issues with the voltages on Sub 5V, Main 3.3V, DTV 9V or the Tuner Power and the board in question is the "A-Board". Also, make sure that your units fan and airflow is not inhibited.
