Question about Panasonic DVD-CV52 DVD Player

Error Message H07 - what is it?

Half-way through watching a DVD (with no previous indications of a problem), the TV screen went blank, then showed the standard "blue screen" with the word "DVD" (like you see at the start of a movie when you first insert the DVD). The player however showed "Error H07", and it would no longer play the DVD. I tried a few other DVDs, no luck. I restarted the player, also no luck. What does "H07" mean, and does anyone have a fix for it? In the meantime, I will try to clean it as per the previous fix listed for "H02".

    when i put a DVD disc in the DVD player wouldn't play the DVD player would say Error Message HO7 is there any way to fix this?

    HO7 message on unit, and not playing any disc.

    Thanks...would have been a great solution to try if I still had my unit. Brought it to a shop, after parts & labour estimate it was not economically feasible to repair, so I bought a new player for half the repair cost.

    Excellent detail on the proposed solution, if only every "fixya" was that clear. Hope this works for you other guys!

    I have exactly the same problem, but when I review the Panasonic parts list there is no listing for a "spindle" motor. Since this model (DVD-CV52) is a 5-disk changer, perhaps the failed motor has a different name. Panasonic lists only two parts as motors for this unit. One is item RFKPLPD667PA, described as a "TRAY MOTOR/DC/<35W" costing $14.85. The other is item RFKPLPD667PB, described as a "LOADING MOTOR" costing $15.06. Since the tray opens to accommodate DVDs or CDs, does that mean the Tray Motor is good? If so, then is the Loading Motor the "spindle" motor?

    I also have an H07 problem. However, there is no listing for a "spindle" motor in the the Panasonic parts list. Panasonic lists only two motors for this unit. One is item RFKPLPD667PA, described as a "TRAY MOTOR/DC/<35W" costing $14.85. The other is item RFKPLPD667PB, described as a "LOADING MOTOR" costing $15.06. Which one is the "spindle" motor?

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 link mentioned above provides an excellent pictorial guide to disassemble and reassemble the player.

Ho7 is a very common problem with the panasonic dvd players. It means that the spindle motor didnt come up to speed and shut down, Thus the spindle motor needs to be replaced. Good Luck

I keep getting a blue screen on my Insignia TV. Cable box still shows the channel and I can change channels but nothing on screen. No sound either. This TV is not even 3 years old yet.

A blue screen indicates no video signal, if you change the video input to a DVD player is it still a blue screen? If yes then the TV is defective. If no then some how the signal is being lost to the TV from whatever source you use for watching broadcast TV

Sounds like a bad connection to whatever you have it connected to (cable box, dvd player, etc). Check the connection and then replace cables.

Blue screen of Death?
No, this is not windoze.

can you change channels?
a blue screen usually means that you don't have a signal.
Is it hooked up through dvd/vcr player?

Try a straight connection to cable or antenna.

If it remains, then it requires surgery.

Can't get second picture in Picture-in-Picture (PiP)

Watching two separate tv channels at the same time requires two tv channel sources,i.e. a split of some kind. For instance,the cable coming in thru the wall is split-half to tv or vcr/dvd combo and then to tv,the other half to cable box,then out to tv.If what I described fails,then you may have an actual tv failure.PIP video is generally a separate circuit from standard video.An expert tech w/service literature should be able to help. Let me know if you need more assistance.

32 in ILO tv, goes blank

Usually the blue screen is an indication that the video signal to the TV is not present. Most of the new TV's have a video input selection button on the TV and on the remote; try changing the video input selection.

No picture with DVD input

Your going to need the original remote to switch back to AV input in the menu. It should explain in the owners manual how this is done. If you do not have that or cannot find the manual go to a search engine and look up emersom dowmloads it will show up as I think PS dont forget to rate this.
