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.
It can be several reasons
1. Disk is upside down
2. Lens is durty. CD/DVD cleaning disk will help
3. Disk is in different formate (for instance NTSC for US but you trying to playback disk in PAL)
4. Disk has different region code (look is the dvd player and disk have the same code, or ALL Regions code)
I had the same problem. After trying several brands, the only one which is working perfectly is Maxell (yellow discs). I found them is the US (Seattle), have not seen them in France where I am leaving. Hope it can help !
