Question about Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD Recorder

Open Question

Panasonic DMR-E50 DVD recorder stopped recording using all methods. Please help.

I was watching a programme I'd recorded in chasing play when it froze part way through recording. Since then it won't record using any method (direct record, timer record or videoplus). When I try to record using timer record, it turns on at the correct time but then immediately says 'bye' and switches off. When I check on the Timer Programme List screen I get an 'F' icon on the left of the listing which the manual says means the disc is full or the maximum number of programmes was reached so the programme failed to record. Neither reasons is correct as I have tried using new discs as well as completely erased discs and have completely cleared the timer recording programme. I have also tried unplugging it for several hours all to no avail. Please could someone help with this problem. Thanks.

You can only record to dvd-ram or dvd-r NOT dvd-rw!

SOURCE: unlock code to play any dvd and record to hard drive

You need a special remote, there are no codes. Have a google for "panasonic region free" and you'll see what I mean. I have the same model and had to take to a dealer to unlock for me. Panasonic are a bit unfriendly about unlocking dvds as I think they are part of the whole DVD organisation. there are ways to do it with a Palm device or something like it (even a pc with IR port) but it is tricky. You can also rent a suitable remote for about £20 I think, again google it and you'll find companies that offer that.
Hope that help, though I guess you may have sorted it by now as you posted about 6 months ago,
Stu.

SOURCE: Recording from DVD recorder to disc

Christine,

1) Put a compatible DVD in the tray. (I have noticed that I must format DVD+R discs, but others are formatted okay for recording -- such as DVD-R and DVD RW)
2) Close the tray.
3) Make sure the player is set to HDD and not to DVD. It will indicate HDD, DVD, or SD on the LCD screen.
4) Using the remote press the "functions" button.
5) Select "copy" from the menu when it appears.
6) You will now see the list of programs you have recorded to the HDD. Highlight the one you want to copy and press "Enter" on the remote.
7) I think there are two confirmation screens that come up, press start or continue or whatever it says.
8) My recorder generally takes about 14 minutes at high speed to copy a two-hour program. If the program is longer than 2- hours, you must divide it into tow or more shorter segments for more than one DVD.
9) If you want to select several shorter programs (not to exceed 2-hours combined) highlight the programs individually pressing the PAUSE button on the remote. This places a check mark next to each of the programs. When you finish, press the enter button on the remote and go through the confirmations screens again.
10) If the DVD is nor rewritable, it will automatically run the "finalize" program. It takes about 3 minutes and runs after recording. This formats the DVD so that it can be played in non-Panasonic players. If it is a DVD-RW, they you must finalize it manually if you want to watch it on other types of players.

Hope this helps,

Nancy

Blaupunkt 40/148 tv. how do i record programmes to usb ?


I could not find an owners manual for this TV but if it is like most TV's usb is for playing media, Not recording. I found a site that talks about your TV. The first reviewer explains the usb is for watching (not recording). I have a different TV and same holds true. IF you really want to record TV and have a computer with Windows 7 or Windows 8 you have capability to record to the computer and then move it to a usb to watch it elsewhere.

I hope this helps.

Problem with chasing playback during recording


Most HDD recorder problems are software related. The operating software of computers is often self-corrupting in use and yes a HDD recorder is just another computer.

There could be updated software versions available or perhaps the facility has been disabled to prevent other problems - minor software modifications and patches can be installed through the aerial without you noticing.

For such a specific question it is best to contact the manufacturer's customer service.

Purchased a Technika Model 19-220. 8 months ago never used the DVD recorder because we never had freeserve. Now we are connected to Freeserve the DVD will play DVD's but no accept blanks for recording...


Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

"Will not accept blanks for recording it says No Disc."

from Technika manual: Start Quote
VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.

DVD MENU: To access this menu, press [MENU] button on the remote control. TV System - Choose from the following options. NTSC; Normally used for discs from North America, Japan etc.
Auto; For both NTSC and PAL. This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or record one channel while the television is in standby mode.

Tip: This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.

Quote:
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

Good luck and please post back that you this has solved your problem and click thumbs up of your success or that I can be more helpful.

Press menu button, use the right arrow button to select the multimedia folder (the yellow one). In the multimedia menu use the down arrow to select RECORDINGS then press OK. The "Rec Service List " will appear. Highlight the program you want to watch using the up/down arrows then press OK.

I have an HDD rerecorder that now sjips and freezes


HD takes more info and if you don't have a fast enough processor to handle this, that might be the problem.
The age of the recorder would tell you that. If it's 3 years old that might be it. Also how can the recorder record the HD signal unless it has the right tuner??

Movies on my recorded discs freeze after a few minutes of play


Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
