DVD Recorder works fine for a while then shuts down
I have a panasonic DVD Recorder DMR-e55 which seems to work ok for about 15mins.
It then just completely shuts down and will not allow me to turn it back on unless i completely unplug at the mains. Could there be something overheating somewhere?
Thanks for any help
Heavy baby suggests replacing the voltage reg. Where is the item physically located and what's it's circuit ref? I ask because I have two such units and when one developed the fault, I substituted what I assume to be the entire PSU board from the other unit with no effect on the problem.

Should do.. after all it is only going to record signals OUT from the TV to the DVD recorder IN... as long as it is wired up OK it should be OK. Wire either Component, R,G, B or Audio Visual, .R, W, Y.
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.
Easy to fix. The DMR E55 has 3 remote control code settings and your remote can be set for any one of them. The error you are getting at the moment means that your remote is set for one code but your DMR E55 is set for another. Why do Panasonic do this? The reason that Panasonic do this, is because if you have several Panasonic units, you can operate one of them from your remote without all of them responding at the same time. Ok, so how is it fixed? Turn on your DMR E55 and press FUNCTIONS then select SETUP. Then select OTHERS. You will see the remote option on the right which will say DVD 1 or DVD 2 or DVD 3, Try setting it to a different code and press return. You should get it to work...
A manual can be found here Panasonic DMR-E55 DVD Recorder User Guide
Or if you prefer, you can visit the Panasonic product support website ( just use google to find it) and look for the manual for your machine.
I have been told that panasonic now have a faster speed disc on sale to suit the newer dvd recorders that dmr-e55 cannot record on as they are too fast.
You have to buy the slower speed ram discs to suit the dmr-e55.
