Question about Panasonic DMR-ES10 DVD Recorder

3 Answers

No read error

Hi Guys I've been using my ES10 to play normal DVD's, DVD-RAM and DVD-RW but all of a sudden it has stopped recognising any discs that I put into it. When I try and play any type of disc, the error message 'No Read' comes up, and on the screen I get the message saying 'Disc not recognised - please check disc' (or words to that effect). I bought a universal lens cleaner DVD - thinking that this may be the issue, but after putting it into the drive I was presented with the same message. When I removed the disc, I found there were 5 burn marks in the disc, which have ruined it - it looks like my ES10 is angry. One more point - I can't hear the discs spinning when I try them, just a muted beep and a sort of clunking sound Can anyone help?

    I have exactly the same symptons on my Panasonic DMR-ES15 DVD Recorder. I have removed the covers and cleaned the laser lens, but with no success. It does seem very noisy when trying to read the disk.

    Exactly the same problem - No Read displayed. Won't recognise blank dvd's or even dvd's it has written.

Hi All,

I've had the "can't read disc problem" and "noise" when the
disc is turning. It's not the lens. The rubber pad/ring that the
CD/DVD sits on gets "dirty" and doesn't grab the disc well enough
and the disc slips. It's especially a problem when recording, because
it can ruin the discs, and make then unusable.

I took mine apart and cleaned the rubber ring and that solves the problem.
(for a while anyway) I think the rubber pad has hardened and lost it's grip,
so I have to clean it more and more often now.

Cleaning
1) Unplug it (I take all the cables off)
2) Take the top cover off (5 philips head screws) Don't touch any of the electronics.
3) Remove the blk plastic DVD reader cover CAREFULLY (6 philips head screws)
Don't move any of the parts on the cover or it's really hard to put back together.
4) Gently wipe off the rubber ring with a damp lint free cloth
5) Put the blk cover back on, plug it in, and test it with a disc take make it sure works.
6) Put the metal cover on and you're done.

I used to work as an electrical engineer so I feel comfortable taking this kind of stuff
apart. If you don't, you can buy a new one or have someone else clean it.

Goodluck

I have the same problem with my ES10. ( only 18m old hardly used) I believe it maybe a faulty laser.

Display Reads - No Read or UNSUPPORTED when using DVD

If you cant play a real dvd in it, the laser is prob out of allignment or broken, if its just dvd that you burned, try changing disc type, there is +R and -R , also if that does not work try a different program to burn discs ? good program is convert X to dvd, not free, unless your good at torrents :)

When trying to play a computer generated DVD +R DL, I get a message that says this type of disc cannont be played. please insert a different disc

The disc is probably an incompatible format for this model player. Even if the disc is finalised in your PC, or in a DVD recorder, this player may still be unable to read it. Some DVD recorder/players do not recognise DVD+R (or +R DL) media, while others won't recognise +/-RW discs (except CD-RW); this is a model limitation - not a fault with either your player, the PC burning software or the discs themselves.

Nothing can be done to fix this except purchasing a model which accepts multimedia (+R/DVD-RAM etc). The question is, does your player play ANY normal DVDs? I am guessing your player will accept DVD-R DL discs just fine since this is standard as well as proper shop-bought movies.

Can't record DVD+RW and DVD+ Disks...PLUS

Firstly, you need to finalize the -R disk recorded by and in your unit before it will play back anywhere else.

Secondly, the DMR-ES10 does not support +RW, only -RW.

Finally, I have never heard of a +D. Do you mean +R? It is likely that you have a corrupt disk; change it.

Panasonic dmr es10

Some DVD recorders don't like certain types of media. Does this happen with all blank dvd+rw disks or just with that specific brand? If it's that brand then you should just use a different one.

Dvd-ram 4.7gb

DVD RAM discs don't need finalised, hence its not an available option.

They will play directly on other players -*** BUT*** ONLY DVD

RAM players.

Don't expect your RAM disc to play on a normal

DVD+/-RW DVD +/-R device. Its not going to happen unless the

device supports DVD RAM also. If it does, it will play your RAM

disc once you've finished recording in your own DVD RAM

recording unit. Pop it out of your unit, straight into the other, and

the jobs done.
