DVD drive troubleshooting

Hello, I have a panasonic LF-D521 DVD drive. It plays disk DVD's ok, but whenever I insert a DVD cartridge it keeps ejecting. I did the test where you unplug the data cable and turn on pc, to see if it ejects during boot and it didn't eject. Any idea's other than trying different media? thanks plopdog

My Panasonic- Dvd A560EN , Before it was played smoothley all kinds of dvd and cds. currently can not play any disk; even disk inside it says "No Disk" (rarely I am using this player)...


Hello
Its Laser Pickup Unit is either dusy or damaged. Just insert a cleaning disc into it and play it for atleat three times and check. If this process does not help you; have to repalce its Laser Pickup Unit with same type and number. This is a common fault with most DVDs irrespective of which companys' are they are. OK.

@Hello - whenever I try to insert a disk to play it starts reading it (display reads READ...READ and then it stops and displays HO7 and won't play the disk at all. I've had the unit a few years but have...


H07 is a common error code for Panasonic DVD players. It means the traverse unit (spindle motor/laser assembly contained in one block) has failed. Usually it is the spindle motor part of this unit which fails first, (i.e. it doesn't spin the disc at all) causing the problem, but sometimes the laser can also fail as well. Because the motor and laser are contained in one device block, the whole part has to be changed, and this can only be done by an authorised service centre. The only trouble with that is the cost. Many DVD drives experience this (different brands giving different error codes) so it's not just confined to Panasonic.

There are only 2 ways to go here; either be prepared to spend a fortune in a workshop service to have the traverse block replaced/aligned (which would include a brand new laser), or simply buy a new player - which would give you a new remote AND an optional extended warranty if available; this would be considerably cheaper than repairing the old one.

Don't be put off from owning Panasonic - they are generally good products.

Wont play dvd's.


If this happens when you insert a DVD disc then most likely the laser assembly is failing in the DVD drive. In most cases it will probably still play CD's. The part number needed is LSVQ0087 and isn't cheap as seen on the following ebay posting. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

Panasonic dmr es10


Some DVD recorders don't like certain types of media. Does this happen with all blank dvd+rw disks or just with that specific brand? If it's that brand then you should just use a different one.
