20 Most Recent Panasonic DMRES30V DVD Recorder/VCR Combo Questions & Answers


I have a Panasonic DMR-ES30V.

Most Combo Recorders (VHS and DVD) will prevent you from
recording a Copyrighted VHS tape program onto DVD.
Try recording a TV program onto your VHS tape, then
transfer it to your DVD and see if your new DVD recording
will work or not.

This machine recently stopped all operation and refused to turn on or off. It has no power. A DVD disk is locked inside. HELP????

1. Check the wire to wall outlet for any damage. 2. Check the AC power supply cord is inserted securely into a known active AC outlet. 3. This is a power saving feature. Change "Off Timer" in the "SETUP" menu, if you would prefer. ?One of the unit's safety devices is activated. Press [POWER I?/I] on the main unit to turn the unit on. Check page 13 and 43 of the manual. http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/DMRES30V.PDF

Send an email to: [email protected] and write "Panasonic DMR-ES30V repair brief" in the Subject field. Tell Mike your problem and he will send you his repair guide.

Basically you need to replace two capacitors (C1204 and C1209) in the unit with higher rated 35V/50V alternatives.

Panasonic dmr-es30v will not turn on

The circuit board may look good, but a power surge can damage the tiny resistors, diodes, and transistors. Any one of those mention can render the unit inoperable.

The dvd is fine, the vcr plays but cannot see on tv or sound please help

Are you using the 3 phono conectors on the back of the machine? These only feed the output of the DVD not the VHS. Use a Scart lead to view both outputs. Hope this helps.

Panasonic dmr es30v

Without seeing the actual unit, I would guess that the power supply has failed. These unit have what are called "switch mode" supplies that rely on circuits that oscillate. If a capacitor goes bad, the unit won't oscillate properly, thus no power. These are difficult to track, but are not usually expensive to repair. I would suggest a trip to a service center for a detailed repair estimate. Report the results here.
