DVD HO1 error, and tray is jammed - how do i change the mode to External Port (iPod)?
When i power on, the tray pops open, the light says Hello->Init->DVD HO1 error, and the lights go off. However, when i press the Open/Close button, the lights come back on and repeat the sequence of messages, the tray closes and pops open, and the lights go off again.
I'd like to use the external port (iPod), even if the DVD player is jammed - Is there a quick way to change the mode to External Port/iPod, without an extensive servicing of the DVD sub-system (which seems to be a mechanical issue)? I'd like to use the iPod mode.

It means that there's a misaligned disk inside. You need to
1. Unplug it and shake it side-to-side. 2. Then turn it on and press the open/close. 3. If it doesn't open, goto step 1. 4. When it opens, get the disks out, use disk exchange to try to get them all out. 5. Turn it off, unplug it, shake it again and make sure that there isn't another loose disk, if there is, then open it and get it out.
This is a known flaw in certain Panasonic DVD changers. Good luck

I had a problem with tray on my Samsung Blue Ray opening and closing by itself all the time. I was told by my brother in law that if I always kept a dvd in the tray it might stop it - and it did!! Try it and let me know if it worked for you.
There's so much information missing from this question, but assuming this is a DVD changer, it's a disc error. Either the disc is upside-down or backwards and can't be read, is too dirty/scratched or unsupported and can't be read, or the entire mechanism is jammed or malfunctioning. If there are discs in the tray and you can remove them all, remove them and see if the error goes away. If the tray will not open, either take the cover off and remove the discs, or bring it to a service center.
Look for a tiny hole directly underneath the tray either left or right of the tray. alos of a tiny hole that may be anywhere the two panels meet, use a paperclip "metal", to push in those holes, it will offer some resistance but open the tray. It sounds like the motor has gone out or jammed with dust and debris. -Hope this helps -Regaurds.
mine has the same issue. you can use the other functions, but it is rather annoying having to wait for the system to figure out it is broken. You could just remove the DVD player so it doesn't test it every time you turn the power on. I opened mine up and figured out it was just a plastic piece that came lose and jammed the DVD rack. Im going to contact Panasonic to figure out how the piece goes back in.
Try these steps to reset the unit. I got these from the Panasonic Cust. Service # 1800-211-7262 1. Unplug the unit power. 2. Wait 2-3 mins before replugging the unit. 3. Turn it on. 4. If the display shows INIT / PLEASE WAIT, Press and HOLD the Tune Mode (STOP) button on the main unit. At the same time press #10 (Channel button) in the remote control. They have to be pressed & held simultaneously for atleast 5 seconds. Wait till the INIT / Please Wait display disappears. 5. Once the message disappears, RESTART the main unit by pressing the POWER button OFF / ON. 6. If it does not work, try several times. If it does not work, contact a local repair shop (call them to find out a repair shop near you). If the repair shop wont do it for you, call them back - thats what they told me.
Sounds like there may be a glitch in the microprocesor. Make sure when you unplug it that you leave it along for a few days and is there any type of clock or standby batterys in it take them out as well. If that dosent correct the problem your gonna need a service manual to trace the switch pulse to see if the units Switch matrix lines are low or lost because of a faulty micro or a bad componet like a small caps they install on the matrix to keep noise off them. Hard one to call with out seeing unit and analizing unit Good Luck
