2 weeks ago my Panasonic DVD-RV41 DVD player showed an error HO2
which more or less means the unit is shot. The problem centers round a
spindle issue that is a known design flaw. Basically what happens is
that the spindle gets warm, expands, and is then pushing on the top of
the player .
1) Dirty or poor pick-up. 2) Sled motor sticking (bad sled motor or contaminated lubricant on the sled rails). 3) Faulty spindle motor. (especially if spindle motor is spinning with top off and no disc inserted).
DVD-RV31 also tends to suffer from dry joints to the surface mount IC's and that could cause all sorts of erratic operation.
The motor is on its way out - the H02 code indicates motor failure as
in it cannot spin the disc. You can sometimes fix it but for how long
is anyone's guess. Disconnect from the power, remove the three rear
screws and two screws on each side (total 7) and lift off the outer
cover. Now if you carefully reconnect the power BE VERY CAREFUL NOT
TO TOUCH ANY PARTS INSIDE THE CASE and put a DVD disc in as per normal,
you'll will see that when the tray closes, the upper platen (a
honeycomb disc) that sandwiches the DVD to the lower platen does not
spin - it should. Give a gentle spin clockwise and it should spin up
and the DVD will play. You may need to restart if you missed your
chance first time. If you switch off and on, eject and close the tray,
the spin should happen as normal. If it doesn't, your motor is knackered
and not an economical repair. Buy a new player. If it spins time and
time again, you may well have temporarily fixed it for a while.
