In short "yes". the switching regulator IC (component found on heatsink "cooks" because the heatsink is not big enough).
start with checking power supply capacitors for bulging tops or electronic leakage (preferably using ESR meter) & fitting bigger heatsink. If problem persists then replace switching regulator IC

My dmr-e55 dvd recorder will try to do a seif check but keeps going back to the beginning, and also i have notice'd that the cooling fan does not work, but after sevral attempts it does come on.


Hi there,

One possible cause of this is there is a known fault with the DMR-E55 where it goes into self check with intermitent shut down, so much so there is a mod kit available to try to overcome this. The kit costs around £20 online. However the kit composes of componants that need to be soldered into place and I stress this should only be under taken by trained technicians as further damage could occur, also the removal of the cover exposes potentially live electrical parts. The cooling fan could also indicate that there is a problem on the circuit board or the fan is on it's way out and needs replacing. My only recomendation is to take it to a Panasonic registered repair centre.

Hope this helps,

James

Ihave dmr-e55 it records advd for 5 minutes and it goes to self check


1) Press and keep [POWER] button on the unit for more than 10 seconds
to turn off the power of the unit.

2) Unplug power cord and wait for approx. 1 minute.

3) Plug power cord in.

4) The display shows [RECOVER] or [SELF CHECK] and it becomes under
recovery. Wait till the message on display disappears.

*When the unit does not recover after taking above procedures (1 to
4), it is needed to be checked and repaired.

Self checking


I have had a Panasonic DMR-E85 with this exact same problem you are describing. As I bought a Freeview Dual-tuner PVR I just bought a second-hand DMR-E55 as I liked the Panasonic interface. Two months down the line it is now exhibiting the exact same problems, except now as well as the continual self-check rebooting, it's also refusing to eject the disk. Booo. Time for me to buy a new DVD recorder again, and this time certainly not Panasonic... :(

Recorder keeps 'self checking' then taking dvd back to begining, although only on recordable dvd's, not rented. Are recorders worth repairing or are you better just buying another?

Will my non finalzied discs play on a panasonic ez 28 or ex 768


You will have no problem playing your non finalized discs on any of the Panasonic DMR range including the DMR EZ28 series. The DMR E55 can also easily be repaired if you can use a soldering iron and a little care. Please checkout my other postings for full repair details.

DVD Recorder keps re-starting self test & will also not finalize discs.


This seems to be a common problem with the E55 and E85 models, could be one of two things, either the RAM Drive or the Power control ic (STRG6353 primary side of PSU), i would suspect its the latter. You'll need an engineer to replace this component.
