DVD won't place discs


Did that just begin out of nowhere? IS the Dvd spinning, if you listen closely and the player is making noise as well? That would be the lens trying to get a read on it but if it's scratched (I'm sure you tried others) sometimes the lens just go bad out of nowhere...Mu original 500 Sony PS1 in 1998 lost its lens about 3 months in...I can't think of anything else right this moment....I hope you fix it...

@Hello - whenever I try to insert a disk to play it starts reading it (display reads READ...READ and then it stops and displays HO7 and won't play the disk at all. I've had the unit a few years but have...


H07 is a common error code for Panasonic DVD players. It means the traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly contained in one block) has failed. Usually it is the spindle motor part of this unit which fails first, (i.e. it doesn't spin the disc at all) causing the problem, but sometimes the laser can also fail as well. Because the motor and laser are contained in one device block, the whole part has to be changed, and this can only be done by an authorised service centre. The only trouble with that is the cost. Many DVD drives experience this (different brands giving different error codes) so it's not just confined to Panasonic.

There are only 2 ways to go here; either be prepared to spend a fortune in a workshop service to have the traverse block replaced/aligned (which would include a brand new laser), or simply buy a new player - which would give you a new remote AND an optional extended warranty if available; this would be considerably cheaper than repairing the old one.

Don't be put off from owning Panasonic - they are generally good products.

LaCie DVD Burner Not Doing Much of Anything


You should check for corruption of your CD/DVD burning software from whereever you got it. Sometimes some burning software isn't good enough to work adequately. I'd test some new burning software to see if that is the problem, if upbrading your burning software doesn;t do the trick. You can downlowad free trials of Roxio, NTI, and other good burners to test this hypothesis. And, of course, try calling LaCie support.
