Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player-No image on RCA output

I had this player for some time and it worked fine with very little use. Then, suddenly the RCA video output on the unit is not sending any video signal to the TV. Audio is working good.I tried in two different TV's with same result. Then i tested the composite outputs and i can get output in one of them(black & white). There's no codes and the unit seems to be reading the DVD/CD's fine. Any suggestions before throwing it to the trash?

Re: Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player-No image on RCA output

Hi Obviously the unit is playing the disk because your audio is fine, and getting some kind of black & white picture out of the composite, means that the video processor is probably ok. The most likely things to check then is the yellow video cable, (just swap the red or white in place of the yellow on both the DVD and your tv to test), or possibly the yellow RCA jack on the back of your DVD has gotten loose. If you have not done so, try wiggling it gently to see if your video comes back. If it does, and you are handy with a soldering iron, you can probably repair it yourself. Other than that, it would be a problem for a repair shop. (and a strange one!) Hope this helps, and good luck!

I am unable to play DVD's and receive error message HD7. How can I fix this? I own Panasonic DVD-RV32 player.

I think you mean H07 - this means the traverse unit (which contains the spindle motor and the laser in one assembly) has failed. The spindle motor is the most likely problem; unfortunately this is not repairable at consumer level, it would need to go to an authorised service workshop where the whole unit would be replaced in the player, which would include a brand new laser. The other snag is the cost - a new traverse unit can cost around $200 + labour (including alignment and firmware upgrades)!

Save yourself the agony, and simply replace the whole player - cheaper than repairs. The RV32 was not Panasonic's best DVD player model.

How do i connect my dvd rv32 to my sony tv?

It will depend on your TV's inputs. The included cable is a composite A/V cable. This will work. Match the RCA plugs on each device (yellow to video out on the DVD player, video in on the TV; white and red audio go similarly). Alternatively, you can get and use an S-video cable.

For a better picture if your TV has Component video, get a Component video cable (this has three RCA jacks colored red, green and blue on each end) and then use that. You can get a separate audio cable that only has the red/white RCA jacks (or use the composite video with the yellow video jacks dangling).

If your TV doesn't have Composite video inputs, you need a RF modulator (Composite to RF converter). These are available at many sites, including Radio Shack.

I hope this helps.

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! (:-)
