Wont read disc-error message HO7

I have a panasonic dvd/cd player model dvd-cv47 and it wont read any dvd's. in the display it reads "HO 7". i no longer have my manual and have no idea what the error message means. i took the top off and the device that picks up and spins the dvd's seems to be a bit loose.

Press & hold the Rewind, Pause, and Open/Close buttons for 5-10 seconds. When init appears on the display turn off the player. Turn power back on and it should work.

@Hello - whenever I try to insert a disk to play it starts reading it (display reads READ...READ and then it stops and displays HO7 and won't play the disk at all. I've had the unit a few years but have...

H07 is a common error code for Panasonic DVD players. It means the traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly contained in one block) has failed. Usually it is the spindle motor part of this unit which fails first, (i.e. it doesn't spin the disc at all) causing the problem, but sometimes the laser can also fail as well. Because the motor and laser are contained in one device block, the whole part has to be changed, and this can only be done by an authorised service centre. The only trouble with that is the cost. Many DVD drives experience this (different brands giving different error codes) so it's not just confined to Panasonic.

There are only 2 ways to go here; either be prepared to spend a fortune in a workshop service to have the traverse block replaced/aligned (which would include a brand new laser), or simply buy a new player - which would give you a new remote AND an optional extended warranty if available; this would be considerably cheaper than repairing the old one.

Don't be put off from owning Panasonic - they are generally good products.

This normally means the spindle motor is faulty.

HO 7 error on a Panasonic DVD/CD player.

I got mine to work. I looked around a bit on the web, and it seems that HO7 means that the disc isn't spinning. Whether it's the motor that's bad, or just dirt etc, the problem is that the disc doesn't spin. I took the cover off of mine and blew out the dirt. Then i gave it a spin by hand to get it started. I'm not sure if I just had dirt clogging up the gears, but at least it works (for now). Good luck on yours.

I have a Panasonic DVD player, model no: DVD-RV32, that is displaying the message "H07". What does this mean?

Here's the fix
I've replaced the motor once before on my 5 disk player to fix the HO7 error. The second time it appeared I tried the fix at the above link instead of going thru the hassel of the repair shop.

You may need to apply WD40 multiple times to cure the problem, depending on how stiff the rotation of the spindle feels. After the first application the player ran for about 5 minutes before the HO7 error reappeared. After the second application we watched an entire movie with no issues. we'll see how long this lasts. The fix was simple and hopefully wont have to be repeated soon.

Panasonic DVD-LX9 "disc may not be played in your region" error

Try cleaning the lens with a cleaner?
So it only reads music/Audio CDs and won't play DVDs?
Do you get an HO2 or HO7 error? If it is that it might be
the spindle motor.

You might try this website also to reflash the firmware:

The problem with your unit is the "Spindle Motor", this motor is the one that spins the disc so the laser can read it. I sugest you to take your player to a shop, or back for service if the unit still under manufacturer warranty.
