[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DMR-ES35V - DVD recorder / VCR combo. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]My Panasonic DMR-ES45V has trouble playing DVDR recorded DVDs erratically. It will play for 20 or 30 or 40 minutes then freeze. I tried opening and shutting the tray, cleaning tray, restarting etc. Sometimes on a disc it will play some episodes, but not others. Please help, thank you.
