Hi There

Like you i would expect EP 30 on the display to mean the ammount of time left on the disc for recording, however I had put a prerecorded disc in (actually the film Hidalgo which has only been played twice) so I would not expect to have any recording time available, i then tried a panasonic dvd-ram disc and this also showed EP 30 on the display hence my confusion.

I will have another play with it tomorrow (well later today actually as it is 04.00 here now) and see if leaving it with out power helps to clear any bugs

Cheers

Cliff

To reset a Panasonic, with the unit powered ON, press and hold(at the same time) both the channel UP and channel DOWN buttons on the unit for at least 5 seconds.
Note after doing this you will have to reprogram your tuner presets as well as a few of your setup options. Again for this to work your unit must be ON.
post #334 of 494
Having left it with the power off over night I powered it up earlier and it came up with afault code of U88 this time, I tried you suggestion to reset the unit but nothing happens and then the unit shuts down. i pressed the power button again and it came up with the U61 code again so I thinlk it probably has more faults than just a dirty DVD drive.

Thanks for you help but I think I will give up and see if there is one for sale on ebay.

Cheers

2) Give it a chance before hating on it...

1) Answer: Out of frustration and low expectations re: DVD recorders in general, and because it's an old term that's been around a long time, and, last but not least, to add a flavor of humor to an aggravation filled several years of disgusting adventures with DVD players.

2) Already had decided the 515 was probably as agood a unit as could be found here and fully intended to treat it fairly.

Now that I have owned it for about a month, I am very pleased. Never before had a DVD recorder with a hard drive and it is a blessing own one. I record multiple shows every week and don't have to put the DVDR thru the wear and tear of recording, finalizing, reformatting etc.

My single biggest complaint is the lack of dual-layer ability; I record and save football games. I now, record the game, divide the title, then dub to 2 rewritable discs, transfer the video to my computer, break them down, and then reassemble in a dual-layer.

This is a hassle, but manageable; especially when compared to the Panasonic.

I have many blank dual-layer media to use up. Afterward, I will go to 4.7 GB media and buy dual disc jewel boxes for them. Did this before DL media came out.

I have no major complaints with any other part of the Magnavox.

By the way, Magnavox made the first audiophile quality CD player. I owned one. Shortly thereafter, they moved all their high end line to the Philips label. I was given a very high end Philips CD player as a replacement after their attempt (under warrantee) to repair the Magnavox. I still own the Philips. It weighs about 30lbs., has it's own heat-sink, and sold for $729 in the 1980's. I got it as an exchange for my broken Magnavox -which I bought at Sears outlet for $210.

I'm not optimistic in that earlier posters (who've sent hard drive models to McAllen) report that McAllen has refused to forward their hard drive recorders to Elgin for repair.

Have we yet to hear of any successful repairs performed by McAllen Texas? I think not.

Perhaps Panasonic recorder and hard drive recorder owners will have to watch Craig's List to find compatible parts machines and learn to service, repair and rebuild their own recorders. (I check Craig's List several times a day.)

These policy changes will have the result that current Panasonic owners will have to think long and hard before purchasing new Panasonic products in future.

It appears that the day is fast approaching when it will no longer be practical to repair older Panasonic recorders.

The alternative is the purchase of Magnavox 2160 and 513 models or the upcoming 515 model.


I have (or had) a 2006 Panasonic recorder (DMR ES 46V) which was usable until 2009 when it stopped recording. After trying to clean up the lens (unsuccessfully but this might be because I am clumsy) I sent it to Elgin for the fixed price $130 repair.

After that the recorder was semi usable, because while it could record it started having freezes for one or two minutes on DVD RAMs. After about one more year it stopped recording on DVD_Rs as well and has even problems playing DVD RAMS while still being able to play DVD_Rs.

Like other users on this thread I found the Elgin center to be out of commission and I sent my unit to the Texas center that does not want to repair it but wants to exchange it to a refurbished EZ 485 unit for $170 which is an offer I am not inclined to take.

I bought 3 months ago a Magnavox 515 which covers my current needs, but my problem is that I have about 100 DVD RAMS and some VHS tapes left behind by my Panasonic and I need a solution to copy the DVD RAMs to the Magnavox.

I have zero confidence in being able to fix the old Panasonic by myself, I do not wish to spend 170 dollars for what would basically be an unreliable DVD RAM player and I am looking for a different solution to convert my old material. Any suggestions for what I could use?

The DMR-ES46V is perhaps the best Panasonic VHS/DVD (non hard drive) recorder that has been marketed in North America. I have one as-new ES46 in it's original box and one "dead" ES46 parts machine that gave up it's like-new DVD Drive and Digital PCB "module" to restore a heavily used DMR-ES35V.

I don't use DVD RAM discs so I'll not address that question.

The most important service issue for Panasonic DVD Drives is cleaning the rubber hub and spindle area. Whenever there is an accumulation of dust, debris and oily residue there may be reading, writing and finalizing failures. This problem is not addressed by lens cleaning discs. Cleaning the lens is a two-second procedure just before moving on to clean the rubber hub and spindle area. With a DMR-ES46V the whole cleaning procedure takes ten or fifteen minutes--as described and illustrated in this post:

If you have just about any recent DVDRW drive in your computer you could always use it to copy then record to normal DVD blanks or the Hard drive, then do whatever you want with the files after that. My new Optiarc\\Sony 7260 does DVDRAM and I know most LG drives will and others.
Haven't really played with the newer ones but if it can see and use a external USB thumb drive or hard drive you could load em up and transfer em that way as long as you have a drive that can read the disks.
post #339 of 494
You could also look for basically any used working Panasonic DVDR(pawn shops, Craigslist, etc.) and use it to finalize your DVDs or copy your RAMs to your Maggy. Personally I'd look for a '05 or newer but again personally I'd avoid the EZ line, maybe a EZ-28 or EA-18 but I'd avoid the rest like the plague. After you're done with your project you could put both your ES-46v and whatever Panasonic you bought up for sale, I'd suggest Craigslist if feasible.
The ES-46v is a fine unit but not working I don't know how much you could get for it, maybe $20?? and whatever else you bought I'd put it up for whatever you paid for it and you wouldn't be out anything.
Check my signature link for a list of Panasonic models and what year they were made.
I agree your problem may just be a dirty spindle but if you think you'll cause more damage than good you may want to leave well enough alone and look for a used Panny.

I have a computer that partially reads DVD RAMS. My RAMS have various chapters. For some reason the computer cannot display the meny and it does not go past chapter 1 when opening the VRO file. There is a lot of software which says that it can deal with RAM but I tried a few programs and some could not even open the file. while the others had the behavior I mentionned above.

A complicating factor is that the size of the VRO file is way beyond the maximum size of a Windows file so you do need special software.
post #341 of 494
In reply to jjeff I did check the panasonic DVD RAM players (the site does not let me post the URL).

The same as the good recorders they do not exist any longer. The only one I could find was a used DVD-S47S which I am considering.
post #342 of 494
Unfortunately many/most?? of the new Panasonic DVD players don't support RAM discs anymore but all the new Panasonic DVDRs play/record RAM discs. I say all but it sounds like the only available new Panasonic recorder is the EZ-28 and maybe combo EZ-48v
Now that I think about it Panasonic may only make a couple DVD players, the majority of their line is BR player. DVD players and DVDRs basically a dead product
I think I had a record amount of 's

zorkovic, Amazon is apparently still selling the Panasonic DVD-S38 player for $31.99 new, probably your best bet for playing your leftover DVD-RAM discs into your Magnavox. (At least, according to Panasonic's own website, it plays DVD-RAM: this may be a misprint considering the low price.)

As for the tapes, thats easy: pick up a clean used Panasonic or Sharp 4-head hifi vcr from Craigs List or a thrift shop, no more than $20. Better yet, ask friends and relatives if they have a neglected VCR lying around the house: most people do, and would be happy to lend/give it to you. Plug it into your Magnavox line inputs, and you're good to go.

The .VRO file is only about 4.3GB. Not a problem for an NTFS formatted HDD. You need at least Win-XP SP-3 to read a RAM disk on a PC without a 3rd party driver.
post #345 of 494
So is the Texas facility the only place to send for repairs? And do they actually do repairs, or just send refurbs of other machines? I ask because my DMR-E75VS has a DVD recording problem, and I have a lot of stuff on the HDD (and not a lot of knowledge of how to transfer it to the computer or another recorder, the latter of which I'd have to buy). I could always dump it onto VHS since that recorder still works well, but that's no good for archiving any more. I have a guy who can get a new DVD Recorder assembly from his Panasonic dealers, but the outlay would be about $700 (parts, labor, and a $250 "core" charge that's refunded after they receive the core). What would you guys do if you were me? I'm at a loss and I hate to give up my machine because I have unnatural affection for it :-) Thanks!

One more thing: There's a guy on eBay who says he fixes these machines for less than the Texas price. Anyone know anything about him? Such as, is he for real?

There are also two reviews on amazon, that say it does not play DVD-RAM.

What's his feedback rating? If he's good, let us know. Bet he'd get a lot of business from us forum guys.

$700 seems a bit pricey, when new import Panasonics are in the $400 range.

Not much point copying to vhs, but an option would be to copy to another dvd recorder, in real time. Maybe do some editting on the way out.

Then it looks like he's SOOL unless he wants to gamble with an EZ48V on eBay or Craigs List (where you can sometimes snag them for $70). While the EZ48V is the most problematic and despised recorder Panasonic has ever sold, most of its issues and bugs are related to recording, not playback. So a buggy EZ48V could well make for a decent dubbing deck to play DVD-RAM into a Magnavox. An EZ48V, especially if Panasonic refurb, is much less likely to exhibit the notorious "dirty disc clamp" issue than a random older ES machine, another possible point in its favor: it should hold up long enough to dub 100 RAM discs.

There's one guy on eBay who offers a service for $179.95 with free shipping; his rating is 99.6% positive, but he also offers other things. He's in Arlington, TX, with 32 services sold, but I had trouble finding the feedback on those specific items because he has so much feedback.

There's another guy who offers a similar service for $144.99 (shipping not included); his rating is 99.3% positive. He's in Portgage, MI, with one service sold.

BTW, the $700 is before the $250 refund after Panasonic receives the core. The part itself (the entire DVD assembly) is $350 plus shipping & tax, and then there's the labor for the guy to put it in for me. Ugh.

I'm going to check with the TX guy to see if he can fix my particular problem. If you guys think he's okay (based on what you may know about him), perhaps I'll risk it and send it off to him. Thank you for the help!

I've read those ebay listings. If I remember correctly the fellow in Arlington suggests calling him to describe the problems before submitting your transaction. I suppose that helps him determine if he has the right parts on hand to repair a particular model. I've also read the feedback listings. It seems that both those listers have very few feedbacks for the "repair" transactions but have more feedback for items being sold or purchased.

I don't recall if you had cleaned the DVD Drive rubber hub and spindle area. If not you should see this post for advice:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...8#post14479898

That post also provides some diagnostic observations.

This thread gives some advice for purchasing used Panasonic recorders through Craig's List:

post #351 of 494
I tried to clean it; not sure I was successful, though. I tried Craig's List, but couldn't find my model. I did see an EZ48V, but from what I've read, those are not highly prized, correct?

Also, is the Texas Panasonic facility simply not a good idea? If not, has anyone sent one to Elgin recently via a "dealer" and if so, what were the results? Thanks again!

I believe they are more of a T&M type facility and considering a replacement drive is >$400 it's probably not the way to go. Their first suggestion would probably be an exchange for a refurbished EZ-48v which is in no way comparable to your EH-75v.
If it were me I'd try which ever of the two ebay guys look best to you. More than likely they're both legit but after you've got your unit please review them as to how the work was done. Personally I'd tend to go with the guy that wants a description first, that kind of tells me if it's something he thinks isn't feasible he he'll let you know right off the bat. Better than if you sent it into him only to have him say no and you'd have to waste money on shipping. Either way make sure you double box your prized EH-75v, you don't want anymore damage incurred during shipping.

If you can do without the VHS and analog tuner(and IR blaster) a international Panasonic would be a good replacement. Floor models can be had regularly for <$300 from B&H Photo and my EH-59 was like new including box and cables.
post #353 of 494
Thanks, jjeff. I'm waiting to hear back from the TX guy to see what he thinks.

The replacement part (the entire DVD part of the unit) is $326.29 or something like that, according to the guy near me who does electronic repair. That's his cost, of course; he has to charge labor & taxes on top of that, and then there's that core deposit to think of (even though I get it back, I'm still down $250 for a few weeks, at least).

I have a line on a DMR-EH50 for $110 that I will probably pick up, as the owner doesn't use the DVD to record, just the HDD. That might bode well for me, maybe? I can also pick up a DMR-ES30 for cheap, but those don't have HDD. If not, guess it's Magnavox time. That allows me more time to sit around figuring out how much I want to spend on fixing the EH75. Unless I can cannibalize the EH50? I don't know enough about the tech to know if that's a good idea or a really stupid one

I really want one with the VHS & DVD & HDD, but it's not looking like I will be able to get that (cannot find another EH75 to buy despite trying Craig's List and eBay).
post #354 of 494
The EH-50 is a great machine but since it's a '05 and your EH-75v is a '06 you will NOT be able to exchange many parts, including the DVD drive. The only possible donor would be a '06 EH-55 which is almost as hard or expensive to find as a EH-75v.
The ES-30v is a great combo only topped by the ES-45/6 and of course your EH-75v, but again parts won't swap with your EH-75v.

Personally I'd grab the EH-50 and try and get your EH-75v fixed. If your EH-75v is toast or the DVD drive is bad and too costly, you may want to keep an eye out for a used one or even the EH-55. In the mean time you can use the EH-50 which operates very similar to your EH-75v.
Depending on what you like about your Panasonics or how you use it you may or may not be happy with a Magnavox. At least with W/M's great return policy it won't really cost you anything to give it a try.

The DMR-EH75V is the only North American Panasonic VHS/HDD/DVD recorder out there. Because they are unique they don't surface so often but when they do the opening price is usually very high.

The DMR-EH50 is a 2005 model that uses a very different DVD Drive that can not be used in a 2006 DMR-EH75V. The only compatible model DVD Drive would likely be found in a 2006 DMR-EH55 HDD/DVD recorder. DVD Drives from "standard" (non hard drive) Panasonics do not use the same DVD Drives as those found in hard drive equipped recorders. I assume that DVD Drives in hard drive models are maximized for high-speed dubbing and other unique features.

This thread addresses swapping Panasonic DVD Drives and compatibility concerns:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1082922

The Panasonic approved procedure for a problematic 2006 model year DVD Drive calls for replacing the DVD Drive and the Digital PCB together as a "module." There are currently two different modules for a DMR-EH75V listed on the Panasonic Parts website, the RFKNEH75VPT MODULE is currently priced at $299.57 and the RFKNEH75VP MODULE is currently priced at $286.09, not including shipping.

Could you send me the link to that parts site, please? I tried to search and couldn't come up with it the modules, just a bunch of very expensive HDMI cables. Thanks! Also, would you know how I could figure out which module I would need? The repair place will do the labor for me, and this would be cheaper than him having to do all the ordering & other costs (like the core deposit).

I spoke to my repair guy and he told me that he tried the dealer trick to get them to send my unit to Illinois, only to be told that the Illinois facility was closed now (he was talking to the parts department, if that helps). I tried the number I saw listed on the thread myself and got a voice mail box for "Panasonic Service Center," so might try to call again tomorrow and see if they are indeed closed. They also told him that McAllen is strictly a replacement site (I think that's already in your updated info on the thread?), so that's out.

I'll definitely post once I hear back from the TX eBay guy. Hoping he can help since his price is very good, but I'm doubtful if what I truly need is a new module. In the meantime, I'm having the VCR cleaned since it's been too long for that service (for those who didn't read when I posted a long time ago what the problem with the recorder is, it's in this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/archi...t-1282709.html ).

That would be awesome! Please check the thread I linked to for the discussion of the problem to make sure you can fix it, though. It's kind of a funky one.

The Panasonic Parts website is accessed through Panasonic Support by scrolling down to the "Parts and Accessories" section where this screen may be accessed:

http://www.pstc.panasonic.com/Epartr...ListChoice.asp

The model number is recognized by typing in DMR-EH75V. (The model number will not be found without the "V" at the end.)

The DMR-EH75V (Canadian English) Service Manual gives this part number, "RFKNEH75VP RAM/DIGITAL P.C.B. MODULE." I don't know what the difference between the "modules" might be.

I had an DMR-EH75 DVD Recorder VCR with HDD sent to be repaired
at the McAllen Texas Service Center.

I requested to save the recordings on the Hard Drive.

They claimed that the Hard drive was bad.

Dear Valued Customer,

Panasonic is currently working on your unit, but upon your request, we are not to delete the information in your hard drive. In order for us to complete the repair we will need to delete that information, please advise us if you would like for us to continue with the repair.

*** defective hard drive (needs to be replaced). . info cannot be saved ***

Thank you,
David Gonzalez
Sanf Project Coordinator
Phone: 956-683-2930 Ext 2954
Fax: 956-668-8055

Attached is a copy of a approval form they sent me before
they would repair the unit.

The problem before repair was U61 Errors and the DVD Drive making clunking noises.

They claim they replaced the RAM DIGITAL PCB MODUL RFKNEH75VP
and DRIVE HDD 80GB RFKVOO65HDK

I am still getting self check errors.

If they replaced the Ram Digital Module and the Hard Drive.

Why am I still getting self check errors?

Please advise.
