Question about Panasonic DVD-LA95 Portable DVD Player
When I attempted to watch a DVD recently on my Portable Panasonic DVDLA95 DVD player, all it did was spin the disc, click a lot, and present the word reading. I shut it down and it read ERROR H03, shut off then left visible LCD lines at the top of the screen. I read online that about the only thing you can do for that code is to take all power supply away for 30 minutes and reset all the memory codes. Where I was reading this, however, was a question and answer site, and the questioner said his discs were not spinning and his player would lock up. Fortunatly, Mine has none of those symptoms. I have disconnected the power sources and I am still waiting for results, but can you tell me if there are any further actions I could take should the 30 minute power starve not work?
I had the same problem with my Panasonic la95's. I read a couple of posts talking about a similar problem with other Panasonics and the failures seemed to focus on the threaded spindle that the laser assembly rides on as it scans the DVD. I took off the back of the player, opened the case and cleaned and lubricated the spindle with some wd40. I put the wd40 on a q-tip so as to not spread it too far). I also turned the spindle a few revolutions to move the laser back away from the center (in case it was stuck too far in). Voila. When I put it back together it read the DVD and it worked. Big thank you to the others who have posted solutions.

There are 2 errors, ho3 and ho2, I can't remember which one is which. One means the laser is going and one means it's a dirty track. I suggest you first very gently clean the lens. If that doesn't work you take apart the player and clean the whole track that the laser moves on along with everything around it (keeping in mind that the laser is fragile). If that doesn't work than I can't help anymore without seeing it.
