Can you see or hear that the disk is spinning up normally as it did before? I understand that the small, spin-motors on these portables often go bad.

    So, then would you need to replace the motor?

If the problem happens with all or most of the disks, then it is usually a lens related fault.

Had the same problem at first. The disk must be burned using an "ISO Image"....if you're using Windows Vista, it uses a different format. Google "Free ISO Image Burner" and download one of the free ISO image burners, if you don't have one. Burn the firmware file you downloaded to a CD as an ISO Image, and it should work.

The panasonic dmr e55 will burn a disc from my video camera and play on the dvd player but no other dvd player. and i read all the instructions step for step

Have you finalized the disk after recording? Are you using DVD-R disks? Also, I can replay my recorded DVRs on my portable DVD player, but not on a TV with a built-in DVD player. That one is just to finicky.

Won't read disks

According to page 69 of the owners manual:

If you repeatedly insert discs or turn this unit on and off 50 times or more, the recording or editing of DVD-R may be disabled.
There is no suggestion to fix.

Is it the correct type of disc? Whilst these devices will play almost all 'commercial' disks In many cases 'burned disks' Cumputer Data disks and audio disks are a No No The manual/packaging will tell you which. You could try a Lazer cleaner disk. Failing that it looks as if the device is failing and needs replacing - I doubt if there is a repair option.
