Question about Panasonic DMR-E80H DVD Recorder

2 Answers

Has had 2 different problems

After running great for 2 years, the hard drive died. Had a friend replace it and that works good now. Then, about 3 months ago, I could not make it respond to either remote control or pushing buttons on front panel. I power it off by holding power button for 10 seconds. Then when I turn it back on it works fine for a while, but eventually will stop responding to commands again. Anyone ever heard of this issue?

I had the same problem a while back. I was scared that the hard drive was going to die completely so I started burning my shows to disc and clearing the hard drive as I was going along. Once I erased a bunch of stuff my recorder started to work fine again. Go figure.

II replace the hard drive in my sony vio all in one desktop, wil that correct all errors

It depends on the type of errors you are experiencing. Replacing the hard drive and reloading the operating system may resolve a great deal of software related problems, including issues with the operating system. And it will also resolve any hardware related issues that you had with the original hard drive. But replacing the drive won't help with other hardware related problems such as motherboard, ram, power supply and optical drive issues.

My photobank will not charge at all. I've tried different wall chargers... nothing works!! It seems like it's dead. I have so many years of pictures on there! Are they retrievable?

My photobank had died due to lack of use and a friend's solution was to just take it apart and unsnap the hard drive from the USELESS mother board and find a hard drive enclosure with USB outs and boot it onto your desktop. My pictures were there and now I have 40 gigs of storage. The company should have gone out of business for all the grief they are still causing the buyers of this inconvience.

It makes noise when i use it and can not tell if it is storing anything

I would be very skeptical of storing anything on there. A noisy hard drive can often be an unhealthy one (ready to die).

My good friend had the same external hard drive (smaller size) and it died on him.

If you can, back up anything you need to another location.

1991 Camaro RS v-6 will start but dies almost immediately

Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.

3 different things may happen when i turn comp on

Im wondering if the hard drive is beginning to go bad, that would cause lockups and also cause it to hang on the compaq logo screen.

It could also be the start of the motherboard going bad. Take your hard drive out, put a good known working one in there and with your discs, restore your laptop with the known good working hard drive and then see what happens, if the lockups are still happening then you know the motherboard is going bad.

1997 Maxima has had 4 alternators in 4 years!

Hey! I have a 97 Maxima SE and it runs great too! I have been through 4 alternators in 12 years....3 in the first 5 and finally one for the last 7. Make sure you have a new- Nissan part specific alternator. And, make sure your battery is not weak nor small for your car size. Hope this helps!

Booting up dell inspiron

With no bootable devices, there is no quick fix. It sounds like your hard drive has died on you. Best to buy a new hard drive and re-load.

Hard Disk Problem

Likely the drive has failed. First check the cabling, and settings in BIOS. Is the drive being detected by BIOS during bootup? Next see if Samsung has a drive diagnostics program which can be downloaded and run. This will usually tell you what is wrong with the drive, if anything.

You can do the process of elimination- Install a known good drive in your computer, take the suspect drive and install it in a spare or a friend's machine.

If it is bad, replacement is required. Any data on it is probably toast unless you wish to employ the expensive services of a data recovery business.

Dell Hard Drive

If possible go here:

http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Scan your entire hard drive and let Trend take care of the dirty work. Being quarantined doesn't mean deleted. You should ditch Norton and Get AVG. Its free and just as good.

Let's hope for the best
