[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DIGA DMR-E65S - DVD recorder. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]i own a panasonic dvd recorder dmr e65 it is two years old and for some reason it will no longer play my discs it keeps saying recovering disc i;ve bought new discs but the same thing happens also a code comes up u 99 i’ve read my manual but with no help

A quick Google search reveals two solutions. First, try resetting the unit, which is typically just unplugging the unit for 5-30 minutes. Second, send the unit in for service. The u99 error seems to be a common problem with the Panasonic units.
