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".

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

Re: Error Message H07 - what is it?

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

Error code h07

I have just recently posted a cure for this - but here we go again. Fault H07 is the fault code for the spindle/disc motor and to cure it do this!
With the lid of the player removed, locate the spindle and where the motor shaft goes into the motor itself, use a little light oil or WD40. Let it soak in a while and try it again - you should now find it works.
Why this works I just don't know - it just does! (:-)

H02 Error after inserting a dvd disk

The trouble started with an error to close and open the DVD drawer. It indicated "close" when the drawer was open, or "no disc" when the DVD was inside, and I had to try many times before I get the right response and go on with the procedures.
But then it also started playing just a few MP3 tracks and stopping to work, showing again the inserted DVD data. Later H02, and then H07 and STOP. It doesn't even start playing stuffs, movies or MP3 tracks!

Error message H07

The spindle motor is defective. Open the cover and see if the disc spins when it loads. If it doesn't, give it a spin in a clockwise direction immediately after loading the disc.

I opened it up and sprayed silicone on the center where the disc snaps on. I also sprayed from a side angle to try to aim it towards bearings/works underneath. It worked!

Troubleshooting -- Displays H07 code

While stopped, press and hold REWIND and PAUSE on the unit and then also press and hold OPEN/CLOSE on the unit until Initialized appears from the display. Turn the unit off and on again. If it is still not working, Panasonic Consumer Support recommends having the product checked by an authorized Panasonic service center.
