[QUOTE=VoiceMan615;2676564]Good Evening, Sir!
I have read many, many of your posts on the Panny EH75V… and so many others that you so graciously have posted over the years. Thank You! for your “service” to our country!
I have the beautiful 2006 EH75V… with all the usual issues regarding the DVD burner. It does the usual noises that suggest laser failure. I cleaned the spindle quite thoroughly… and the lens… but to no avail.
It seems to me that the Panasonic $130 repair deal is long gone… so do you possibly have another suggestion? Has anyone found a replacement drive and PCB for this unit?
Your help is sorely needed… and greatly appreciated!
Due to a password difficulty with my DigaDo identity I’m once again using the VoxHumana identity.
Yes, the Panasonic flat-rate repair is long gone (since late 2009).
Your DMR-EH75 probably needs a new laser assembly (an “optical pick-up” in Panasonic terminology).
I refer you to the AVS Forum (where I’m still known as DigaDo). At that forum there is a fellow, mickinct, that does such repairs. Mike is located in Connecticut, hence the “mickinct” identity.
Once you’ve registered at the AVS Forum send mickinct a Private Message. See this thread for more information:
