I have this DVD RW player for a couple of years and have had no problems recording and/or playing DVDs. Last night I recorded a show from Tivo to the DVD, but I did not finalize it. Then my wife got up in the morning, ejected the disc and then tried to play a movie for the kids. After that the machine will not recognize and DVD that is inserted. I called panasonic and they said this is a common problem and I have to send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed! Does anyone know how I can fix this myself at home? I'm not an electronics engineer, but I'm also not an idiot and know how to follow instructions. Any help is greatly appreciated... even if the answer is go buy another machine because it is hopeless.
