Question about Panasonic DVD-LX9 Portable DVD Player
Watching a DVD on this unit, put on stop to grab a bite. Came back, pushed play. NADA. No screen, no sound, no spinning DVD. Battery indicator show it has charge, but we charged again. Indicator lights went from yellow (charging)
to red (when charge completed). Still no go. Any thoughts on problem? Is it worth repairing, or just junking it? Thanx in advance !

I have the LS91 model and it tells you in the instructions what you need to do to get the extra time. Essentially you need to reduce the brightness to -5. This dulls the picture but if you are in a low lit room then it's no problem. To do this for this model you hit monitor mode twice and then reduce the brightness.

SOURCE: Error Message H07 - what is it?
The last time I opened up my Panasonic DVD-CV52, I looked at the little white bush on the motor spindle, it has a small spring which presses against the side of the bush.
I can see no purpose for this spring/bush other than to provide some drag to the motor.
Anyway, I removed the spring, so that the bush would no longer drag against the shaft, that was a few years back, and I haven't had a problem since.
Of course a temporary solution is to oil the bush!
The www.ledcar.com/pdvdh07/ link mentioned above provides an excellent pictorial guide to disassemble and reassemble the player.

check the microswith near the hinge .
its generally located on near the back right corner of the player , on the control surface. it looks like a very small white plastic button or pip. sometimes these stick down and look like part of the player casing, when they actually are a switch. it needs to be raised , so when the lid is closed it pushes the pip down and turns the screen off. Try prising it gently free with a pin or needle.
this happened tome and i was on the verge of binning it. when i looked at the manual and it says
power light flashing slowly means screen turned off.
if the light is flashing very quickly then im afraid its knackerred and just not worth repairing.
if this is helpful to you then just drop me a line at email@example.com

Sorry but the 'NoRead' error is usually the result of the DVD-RAM drive failing or it has failed, in which case a replacement drive is the only solution - $450 for a new drive - plus labour on top = more than the whole unit is worth new. Not only that, but the service agents will probably need to upgrade and reconfigure software as well, then there is the prolonged and exhaustive soak-testing...
I believe for similar money, you could get a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V with 24 month (or optional extended warranty - extra 3-4 years) on all parts and labour (compared to spending the same on repairs to your EZ47V) or you could save those pennies and invest in perhaps a better more reliable brand and model of DVD recorder (if that's what you want to use). You could also try (for zero cost) a cleaning and checking procedure (if unit is not under warranty) found within FixYa and similar websites. Good luck in your venture!
