Question about Panasonic DVD-S55 DVD Player

1 Answer

Powers off My DVD player was working just fine last night. When we put a disc in this morning, it indicated it was reading and then the player shut itself off. We turned it back on (it powers on just fine) and put a different DVD in and the same thing happened: it started reading the disc and shut itself off. There's nothing in the troubleshooting guide that deals with this problem. I tried unplugging everything (cables, AC) and plugging it back in but still encountered the same problem. Any ideas?

    Check for a 'HO2' error message after powering off then back on. The HO2 error indicates a spindle motor problem. (the actual little motor that spins the disc) Possible temporary fix as follows:



    - insert a disc

    - unplug the unit

    - remove the case

    - spin the disc by hand (you can spin the little motor without the DVD in it if you can reach it, I found spinning it with the disc in it was easier)

    - plug it back in and check if it works (I had to help it spin once more with the power on to "jump start it"

    - unplug and replace the cover

I load a dvd in the sylvania sdvd 9009 player and it says no disc after loading


If the DVD loads, there should be something on the display that indicates it is being read (maybe a spinning disc icon). If it tries to read, then displays the "no disc" icon it means either that particular DVD can't be read or the drive has failed. If you try another DVD and get the same result, you can be pretty sure the drive has failed

Dvd player trys to read disc but stops with a HO7 message, worked fine last night, but we did put a dvd in to watch but something came on the tv we wanted to watch and didn't turn off dvd


HELLO

This is a motor problem. Here is what to do to put it right.

Open the disc tray and switch off the power, then remove the lid off the player. Locate the disc motor and where the spindle goes through the motor put a little WD40 or light oil (but not too much) or it will get messy.

Turn the disc motor a few times yourself and let the lubricant soak in. Leave it for about 30 minutes then try it again - and it should work.

This works in a number of cases, though I can't guarantee it will work for you. TRY IT! (:-)

call support from manufacturer on how to reset your player,
For instance, on Samsung players after it is powered on you hold in both channel buttons for 10 sec and the player restarts. essentialy like rebooting a computer.... that fixed mine that had the same problem
