DVD-CP67 Multi-disc DVD Player
This solution is most likely being submitted way too late tohelp "dingo 1295", but perhaps it will help others who run into thesame problem.
Just this past week, in January of 2009, I ran into the very same problem witha Panasonic DVD-CP67 DVD Player. The player would no longer play disks anddisplayed the H07 error. Now, I can't answer the question about what exactlythe H07 code is suppose to mean, but I can offer one possible solution for theDVD Player's inability to play disks and the subsequent display of the H07error. What happened in my case is that a film of dirt had built up between theelectrical contacts that are suppose to form a closed circuit when the player'sdisc drawer is closed. The two metal plates that make contact rub againsteach other and the abrasion eventually both creates and traps dirt where theplates touch. Therefore the player could no longer tell that the disk drawerwas closed because the dirt blocked the fragile electrical circuit from beingclosed. Since the player could not tell the drawer was closed it would not spinup and play any inserted disks. I'd also like to note that before the playerquite playing disks and started displaying the H07 error I was watching a DVDand did see the picture quality degrade until the video finally cut out and thedisk stopped.
The Solution in this instance was to carefully remove the cover from theplayer, after removing seven screws found on the back and sides of the player's case,and to clean the metal contacts with a non-abrasive eraser. The pink eraser ona NO. 2 pencil works perfectly.
On the back of the disk drawer, on the right side is a silver metal plate andat the back of the player, mounted on the plastic frame work around the platterthat picks up any disk placed in the player, is a folded copper plate held down with ascrew. Simply unscrew the copper plate and clean it with the eraser were itnormally touches the silver plate on the drawer when the drawer is closed,being sure you do not get any eraser dust inside the DVD player. Although thecopper plate will most likely be the plate with the most dirt on it you canalso clean the silver plate without removing it. Once cleaned, you can reattachthe copper plate with its screw.
Testing... You must place the cover back on the player before it will playdisks. The cover must be fully seated, but does not necessarily have to bescrewed on. You may have noticed when cleaning it that the copper plate has anupward folded tab that presses against the player's metal cover when the coveris closed. Without the copper plate touching the player's metal case throughits cover the previously mentioned electrical circuit won't be closed and theplayer won't play disks. With the cover properly back on the player go aheadand try and play a disk. If it works then the problem is solved and you canfinish screwing the cover back on. If the player still doesn't work thensomething more serious may be wrong and I would suggest contacting a servicecenter.
I hope this helps.
