I have had this problem for 2 years, hanging up. mine was replaced.... 3 weeks later same problem. I take out the disc and very GENTLY press one direction or the other to free it up. works great for a whole movie or several movies in a row. A small amount of electronic lube helps, just make sure you don't get it near the laser head or it will mess things up. Just clean it off real well if you get some on it.

H03 indicates a traverse servo problem. This may be a problem with the kicker mecha which moves the pickup back and forth in the sled path of the traverse assembly. The kicker may not be moving the pickup back to home position to read the disc TOC when you reloaded the disc to try to get it to play again. It may be something as simple as dried lubrication on the mechanical parts, which can happen especially in smokey or dusty environments. It can also be due to a failure in the kicker motor or breaks on the connection to this motor. Whatever it may be, the player does require repair and an examination for an estimate will help to nail down what's going on to cause a traverse error H03 code

I have just replaced the carbon brushes on my Bosch classic 6 washing machine and wasn't convinced that I put one of them the right way round. The motor is now working ok but it is making a highish pitched...

I would not think putting the brush in the wrong way round would make a high pitched noise. I would look for something rubbing against the drum or check the bearings of the drum or armature of the motor.

I have an Intel PC that has suddenly picked up lots of static

Forget the magnet. Noises like the ones you describe are usually because of a few things: 1) the hard drive is going bad, 2) a fan going bad, or 3) the CD drive is making noise. I'd like to know what the error message reads. And yes, you are correct that restarting the computer with the power button will sooner or later harm your computer.

I don't think they can be, but, also take a look at the fan bearing assembly too. You should be able to isolate if the noise is from the motor bearings or blower bearings.

LE code on lg washmachine

The LE error code means that you have a motor problem.  The high pitched noise means that the motor sensor has failed and needs to be replaced.  You will need to call a qualified LG technician to replace the sensor.

Panasonic DVD ls 850 H03 Code error, how to solve this problem

H03 is a mech problem if I remember you need to take the bottom cover off and remove the mechanical assy (laser chassis) then you need to clean the worm gear (this is the gear that moves the laser back and forth) even the littlest amount of dirt will jame this gear and make the unit go into H03 Mode
