Question about Panasonic SC-DT100 System
Tries to read discs then comes up with error code HO2 and ultimately says NO Disc, but there is a good disc in (clean etc.) We have opened the case and tried to remove any dust.
Hello ahoy, The H02 error code has to do with the optical pickup. There are two things you can try that have worked for others in your situation. First, turn on your device, take out any disk, and close the tray. Push the (back skip, pause, and play buttons) at the same time. Hold for about 4 seconds and the screen will go blank then "initializing" will appear. Try your disc again. If it works, great, if not try this: Remove any DVD's, remove all wires to your DVD player, turn it upside down and gently shake it (this will remove any dirt or dust that could be preventing your optical pickup from working properly) Hook everything back up and try it again. Please let us know how this works for you, and if you need any additional troubleshooting. Best regards, nightdiver

Generally, when a panasonic disc player does this, the spindle motor is defective. If your handy, you can remove the motor and look up the number on it online. you should be able to find one. if your not, you can take it into a repair shop, but it probably will not be worth fixing, as these units have went down aklot the past few years.

No disc error can be a DIY like the following steps.
Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Cleaning the lens. - Sometimes because of dust filled up the lens
can't read any disc.
Try clean the lens by soft cotton
buds. Be careful while doing this.
2.Replacing the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the
lens from the main board for scratch,
damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc.
Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser.
If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there
then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and
reading the ohmmeter.
3.Checked the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc
with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected
on the lens assembly.
Good motor - reading should be
fairly high and it will spin.
Bad motor - reading will drop to low resistance and
will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the
above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a
defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor
you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The
clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read
the disc if it is too far or too close.
If you already
cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor
then I've advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be
done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between
the pick-up lens and the main board.
Hope it may help you.
Thanks for using fixya.
