Awwwww The old HO7 code!! This code means that the spindle motor did not come up to speed and the only way to fix it is to first find out if its the driver servo circuit thats bad or the spindle motor itself is defective. If you know how to trouble shoot a motor speed control servo sure you can fix it, But theres no easy wand waving fix for this unit. Sorry. If its an older unit you want to consider buying a new one as it may not pay to estimate the unit and have it fixed . The balls in your court now my friend. Good Luck

I am unable to play DVD's and receive error message HD7. How can I fix this? I own Panasonic DVD-RV32 player.

I think you mean H07 - this means the traverse unit (which contains the spindle motor and the laser in one assembly) has failed. The spindle motor is the most likely problem; unfortunately this is not repairable at consumer level, it would need to go to an authorised service workshop where the whole unit would be replaced in the player, which would include a brand new laser. The other snag is the cost - a new traverse unit can cost around $200 + labour (including alignment and firmware upgrades)!

Save yourself the agony, and simply replace the whole player - cheaper than repairs. The RV32 was not Panasonic's best DVD player model.

Dvd rv32 keeps saying hot and wolnt play dvds

I think you mean the front display shows 'H07' which means the laser/spindle motor assembly (as one part - also known as a traverse unit) has failed. H07 is a common error code with the Panasonic series of DVD playback decks. Because the traverse unit is a multi-operation device, and because the player is a budget model, the repair/replacement of this part to restore your player back to fully functional condition as well as labour costs could prove expensive - hardly worthwhile. It seems Panasonic have been using substandard components within their products for years now, designed to fail just outside their minimum warranty period.

When trying to play a dvd , it shows H07

Traverse unit (spindle motor & laser assembly combined) is most likely faulty. The motor part usually fails first, which stops the discs from spinning, so the inbuilt laser cannot read them, hence the error code. This can be expensive to replace.

Player "reads" the DVD and then the display says "H07" and ends.

Hi there,

The "H07" is an error code, this particular error code refers to the dvd spindle drive motor. Effectively the spindle motor that spins the DVD isn't turning correctly and on occassion this can be that the spindle & bearings need lubricating due to partial siezure. But really this should only be done by somebody with a bit of technical know-how to avoid further damage to the machine or indeed an electrical injury to the person under taking the task. I can only suggest that you contact a Panasonic repair shop and to see if it is cost effective to repair.

Hope this helped,
