You may be able to obtain a used working power supply sub-board for this model from various secondhand stores, eBay (as a complete combo with a different fault or working), resellers, or you can try getting a refurbished one somewhere. As for Comet, they are no help to you - get a second opinion from Panasonic directly - see if they can exchange the board for you - worth asking them.
If however, you fail completely, and cannot get a board anywhere, or even the old one repaired (which isn't economical), you may need to consider replacing the whole unit - but only as a last resort (the unit is a 2004 model so it's over 6 years old.
Try a different brand of blank dvd+r or -r. you will find that your dvd machine is fussy on what discs it plays. More exspensive dvd players are fussy with what dvd discs you put in, as cheaper dvd players would virtualy play most types of dvds.
Due to a design error there are 2 defective capacitors in this unit :
C1209 680µF 10volt 105°C - always fails being primarily responsible for unit's failure. C1204 1500µF 16volt 105°C - also known to fail with great frequency.
If you have some basic electronic experience (or know someone who has).
Replace capacitors C1209 and C1204 with new ones rated at 35 or 50 volts. You can get these from RS Components for around £3.00 (C1209 is hidden from view as it's located underneath the DVD drive mounting bracket. For this reason, the DVD drive must first be removed before it can be replaced).
The unit should be unplugged until you can repair it. There is no alternative way round the problem, but once repaired it will work perfectly.
