The DVD player tried to read the DVD and stopped. It said H07 and then display reads STOP


Many Panasonic DVD units use a traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly) - and the H07 error indicates a failure of this component block (the spindle motor is the part of the unit which fails first).

This part is not repairable, it can only be replaced by a qualified authorised Panasonic technician - then it must be aligned and the firmware updated/configured to the player. The problem with this is the costs involved; a new spindle motor/laser unit (through Panasonic directly) would cost around $200 trade plus the labour/fitting/alignment - it could be a further $200 - making it uneconomical to fix - since this would be about the price of a new player.

However, you can submit the unit to a service centre, for a quote on the likely part/labour cost(s), then make a decision afterwards - whether to go ahead with the repair or cut your losses and buy a new player.

Blu-Ray players (with DVD playback support) are becoming cheaper to buy nowadays while repairs to DVD players become more expensive. It's up to you.

I am unable to play DVD's and receive error message HD7. How can I fix this? I own Panasonic DVD-RV32 player.


I think you mean H07 - this means the traverse unit (which contains the spindle motor and the laser in one assembly) has failed. The spindle motor is the most likely problem; unfortunately this is not repairable at consumer level, it would need to go to an authorised service workshop where the whole unit would be replaced in the player, which would include a brand new laser. The other snag is the cost - a new traverse unit can cost around $200 + labour (including alignment and firmware upgrades)!

Save yourself the agony, and simply replace the whole player - cheaper than repairs. The RV32 was not Panasonic's best DVD player model.

Please help me to solve the problem with error H03 of DVD-LX8. Thanks a lot.


These H errors may refer to either the laser pickup or spindle motor or both. In this case, H03 and H07 are both spindle motor related. The only trouble is that this part is not serviceable, you cannot dissect it to clean it etc., so it must be replaced (most models I have dealt with have the laser/spindle motor as one part - known as a traverse unit) along with the laser which is also part of this device.

If you cannot hear any discs spinning when you load them, and you should be able to, then the motor within the traverse unit has given out. This can be expensive to replace unfortunately. I advise that you probably take the player to a repair shop - preferably an authorised Panasonic agent, get a free quote and make a decision afterwards as to what you wish to do.

I am getting an H07 code


If memory serves me well, code H07 means that spindle motor has to be replaced. It is ease enough to test, remove top cover from the unit, load DVD disk, when disk is loaded try to give it clockwise push. If unit starts and works - spindle motor is the problem, if it will not start then spindle motor plus driver IC has to be replaced.

Panasonic RV32 DVD player has an H07 error


This code means that the spindle motor did not come up to speed and the only way to fix it is to first find out if its the driver servo circuit thats bad or the spindle motor itself is defective. If you know how to trouble shoot a motor speed control servo sure you can fix it, But theres no easy wand waving fix for this unit. Sorry.
u may try new spindle motor

DVD PROBLEM


Hi,

Often on Panasonic DVDs, error code H07 indicates that the spindle motor is not turning. The spindle motor is relatively small and expectedly wuld develop hardware problems over time. In some cases, a temporary remedy wold be to clean and lubricate the inside of the motor. Here is my post on similar problems with spindle motors of another electronic device, while here is an illustrated how to.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
