Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
When I put a DVD into the player it begins 'reading' the disc but then 'H02' flashs up on the display panel and then 'STOP'. I have also lost the manual so I don't even know what fault it refers to.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I had that problem, the problem is that where you put the disc (the black Circle) tends to get a bit loose so it moves downwards.
so the distance between the lens and the under surface of the DVD / CD is reduce, so the beam is NOT return to the lens.
The way I fix it is by pulling the black circle EXTREMELY carefully and SLOWLY while you are turning it.
Once is out, with a toothpick or a needle put a small amount of crazy glue in the inner walls of the hole that is in the center ( where the pole of the rotor goes in) this way the hole is reduce.
Wait till it dries, then gently put it back in, it will be a tight fit, IT MOST NOT GO ALL THE WAY IN!!!
By this i mean that you will see the pole of the rotor go into the hole, but it most not reach all the way, it should be below the surface. The distance between the end of the pole and the surface of the black circle should be THE THICKNESS OF THE BLACK CIRCLE.
The way to know that the distance is right, put in a CD and play some songs, then try it with a DVD.
If it reads no disc it means you inserted the disc to much, pull it out a bit, then try again.
Once it reads both CD and DVD, fill in the hole with a drop of crazy glue, this way the black disc will not move anymore.
One more thing, I do not recommend to use alcohol in the lens, 'cause some lenses are now made of polymers non resistant to abrasive, instead use a cue-tip (cottonete, little pole with cotton to clean your ear) moistened with bottle water or distiled water.
Note MOISTENED not soaked or wet.
Hope it works for you.

Spindle motor in DVD mechanism require replacement, not practical to repair, just buy new one, upconverting DVD player would cost you less then repair of your old one.

The HO2 message means the disc is not spinning,it's not about the lens
or the laser.It is easy to take the lid off.Once you do that,plug it in,open the tray with the remote,put in a DVD,close the tray and then give the white plastic wheel on the top a gentle little nudge to get the disc spinning.
