I have a Panasonic DMR-BWT700 recorder that will no longer

Customer Question

I have a Panasonic DMR-BWT700 recorder that will no longer play Blue-ray discs or write to blank discs. A window says the disc is scratched or damaged when I know it is not. Is this repairable? If not, what recorder is on the market that will at least equal all the features of the DMR-BWT700. I am not interested in WiFi etc

Customer:

Hi, I am A. Stevens here to help with your question!

Customer:

If you are getting this error but you know for a fact that the discs are not damaged, the optical reader on the player is damaged or dirty.

Customer:

You could try to use a cleaning disc.

Customer:

Or I can recommend another player you had mentioned.

Customer:

This is a great unit with very similar features

Customer:

The cleaning disc may work, just depending on how damaged the optics are.

Customer:

I hope I was able to help you today.

I actually haven't seen any issues with that on the Hama disc, but in case you are worried here is another disc that has some reviews regarding slot loading players.
