I have had a DVD Video Recorder for many years, which is out

Customer Question

I have had a DVD Video Recorder for many years, which is out of warranty. It is model DMR-E55. Do you still repair this model? If not, do you know who might? Nobody makes these anymore and I am trying to get one to use for a little longer. Any suggestion? Thank you,
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: Panasonic, DMR-E55. I got it new years ago. I bought another identical model 3 or 4 years ago and it too has died. Thank you.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: Units would power off and on and try to do self checks and then just lock up. I had to unplug units to turn off power. I imaging some part of electronics are worn out
JA: Anything else you want the electronics expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I imagine you cannot help since the units are so old, but, I appreciate your attempt to help now.
