Most retail stores (PC World, Currys, Rymans) seem to charge between 25% and 40% more for discs than the prices at computer fairs and on-line. check over here

They may even be able to repair the DVD drive without wiping the hard disk. the menu system on your pics are not the same, but that's the same remote.

U88 Error Message Panasonic

Initially I put a CD-RW disk in, which may have caused the problem, and then a DVD-R and then a DVD +R blank disk. Coincidentally my DMR-EZ48V got the same code two weeks ago and the authorised Panasonic repair shop found a faulty 'DVD-RAM Drive assembly.

Plan B is to fix or replace the drive, I guess!?

He is probably the most knowledgeable DIY Panasonic user you'll find anywhere on the web, and he is very generous with his knowledge. page 56<< Header>HDD, disc and card management page-56.jpg 0 LVL 15 Overall: Level 15 Home Theaters 1 Message Active today Author Comment by:speed_542009-10-26 Sorry about the delay - 3 day Record to the HDD and then copy to the disc. The spindle does spin however, 3 - 4 times, after the third or fourth time the laser seeks a signal from the disk.

It isn't practical to change components like the laser diode by itself...

It also thinks a DVD is in the machine when the tray is empty and closed, making the same clunking sound that you report.

Both w/o taking it apart. The unit is carrying out the recovery process. Anyway I came across an article in this forum which indicates that it might be the 'laser' which has failed in the DVD drive unit. I did notice that on my new Panasonic DMRZ47 unit the same 'beeping' noise occurs first when a disk is inserted and then the disk spins up to speed.

But it is strange that according to the manual, this U88 error code isn't a major technical issue. http://www.satellites.co.uk/forums/threads/panasonic-dvd-hdd-recorder-and-u88-error.134284/ Do you have this problem with all DVD discs including DVD-R?<< I use these as well as DVD+RW no dual layered.

If somone could point me in the direction of a service manual with drawings and some advice on disassembling the drive I would have a look.

Panasonic were my discs of choice but are no longer produced, Verbatim are the next best thing. The problem is it did reset itself, but nothings changed. I think that the Verbatim brand is about the only one I haven't yet tried - and at the moment I'll give anything a shot!

Datawrite (in my experience) work for a while but are unreliable long-term.

With thanks again for your help. I've not had the U61 code, though. Nothing could be done besides turning the unit on and then off.My first instinct is to search online and find fixes, other customers with the same issues and try to repair Reply With Quote 29-10-0809:58 PM #7 CaptainWaggett View Profile View Forum Posts Private Message Senior Member Country: Join Date Feb 2008 Posts 25,718 Liked 492 times I've never had much success

Assuming a rogue or dirty disc to be the culprit, I checked the entire batch, along with some +R and -R examples - and none of them are now 'recognized' by The VHS drive works fine. It had been a great recorder up to this point, so I don't know if they do just have a limited usage before you either need to repair or upgrade them. Got a question?

Their parts list does not have a DVD drive? there is no disk in the drive as i was able to eject it. Can anyone help. If you can easily take it apart, try the compressed air trick since you'll have better access (I think).

DigaDo generally seeks out similar second-hand recorders and cannibalizes the drives, it ends up being much cheaper. I'm going to research other combo units and see if I can find a better one for the price.
