Question about Panasonic PV-DF2004 20 in. TV/VCR/DVD Combo
Posted on Dec 22, 2007
I have the same problem with my home unit, I have access to another at work that works fine. I tore apart my home unit (being experienced in electronics) and tore the dvd player out to examine. I could not access the lens to clean, and had no power source to bench check unit. I am now wondering if the unit is even spinning up and checking this is my next step.

Follow-up to Aug 04 response: I spent a few hours today tearing mine apart (3 times, once for a **** mistake of not reconnecting all wires). I verified unit spins with a dvd, checking the position when open/closing. Tore off back case and retore dvd player out of unit, took time to fully take off case and gently clean laser lens, reconnecting dvd to frame, and checking it out with several discs (TIP: If you do this, tape open the vcr door so it will catch when you put on the cover, otherwise will not open auto when ejecting). I now believe the problem is at the component level or laser is out of alignment, both mean it is not efficient to repair. Also, I just saw on e-bay SEVERAL units of the same model being sold for .99-$49.99 because of the dvd not working. I may try contacting Panasonic and try to purchase the whole dvd unit to replace if reasonably priced.
