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?

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


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! (:-)

Presidian dvd recorder pdr 3222

Have had the same problem with my Presidian3222 for the last year, if I recorded something it would come back as invalid disc or blank disc or would not close disc out right, got so damn mad almost took a hammer to it last night, unplugged it like clicky said, did no good, thought cable co may have been sending single to screw up recording, but today took camcorder and tried to record something, same thing which seemed to let the cable co off the hook.
the following seemed to have fixed the problem, first open the player then unplug it, close the drawer 1/2 way, then I took compressed air and blew inside the player to clean the laser after that I have been able to record 3 movies and close the disc properly and finalize the disc properly, I even had 50 new disc made by sony that recorded kept saying were invalid, reads them fine now, I hope this helps everyone, because I was on the edge of putting this thing in the trash last night.
