Question about Panasonic DVD-RV31 DVD Player
We are unable to use the DVD as the following message comes up on the screen. "HO2". We have had a look in the manual and the manual says "the number following H depends on the status of the unit". We have tried resetting the unit, however, it is still not working. We would appreciate some advice. Many thanks.
There is a solution but it takes a little care because the wrong thing touched will give you a shock. Just stay away from the unit near where the power lead enters the unit. OK. remove the top of the unit, place a disk in the unit press play and gently give the DVD a gentle push in a clockwise direction. This disk should then get up to speed and start playing. It also unlocks the error. No guarantees with this one some work, some don't. I hope yours does. BMW

Same Error Code: H02. Great Fix. Remove 2 screws on the left, 2 screws on the right, and 3 screws on the back. Gentlely remove the lid, spin the center spindle, carefully plug in and test. Replace lid and enjoy. Works like a charm!

Ah, good stuff. It took me three tries before it seemed to catch, but it eventually worked. Guess I'll keep the screws out of the lid. Haha.

My flywheel would not spin with my finger or a screwdriver. so i opened the top. there is a very easy moving thing on the top. tried that. didnt work. going to check to see if i can get under it to get the other thing moving.

Wow! Are we all having this problem at the same time? Must be we're at the end of the life of this DVD player. Thanks for your suggestions - I'm off to see if it works.

I was unable to clear the HO2 error without removing the lid. I opened the top and ever so slightly rotated the wheel. Off it rotated and now we're watching movies and having a great time; at least until it stops again.

I just tried Guests' solution and had a little trouble. But after I 'gently' moved the wheel I got nothing. But with a screwdriver and a little pressure to the wheel it seeed to work perfectly. I guess this might prolong the enevitable new player a few more days anyhow.

I was able to clear the H02 error without removing the lid of the unit. Just open the disk tray and gently turn the ratcheted wheel clockwise with your finger. Then load the disk and it should read OK.
