Panasonic DMR-ES10EB

Problem with Panasonic DVD recorder DMR-ES10EB
Whatever type of disc is loaded the message “NO READ” is displayed. When the tray is empty the usual “NO DISC” message is displayed.
I have tried cleaning the laser and the spindle onto which the disc is loaded.
Any suggestions,please.

  1. Unplug the machine for 5 minutes and try again.

  2. Go looking for a new machine.

I’ve tried “both” of these suggestions, but was hoping for something a bit more cost-effective!

Sorry to say I think the laser may be partly dead. :sad:

Thanks. I guess this means that Cdan’s second suggestion is the most likely course of action. Ah well, it was worth a try.

Are you sure the disc spins up ?
