This machine is driving me nuts. Sometimes (less and less) it works but lately it shuts down and message reads "check disk". Run cleaning DVD but this no longer helping. Need repair but don't want to use Texas after reading reviews. Help, I love my machine!

Almost certainly the spindle needs cleaning, clean it and I'd bet your problems will disappear.

Jeff has kindly provided the link to the post with the DVD Drive lens, spindle/hub cleaning procedure for Panasonic recorders.

With a DMR-EH50 (I own three of them) there is a workaround for removing the DVD Drive lid and other information found in this post:

That post has since been updated, with photos, in this post:
