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.

Dvd wont play ...each time you insert a DVD it shows DVD HO2...


I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off

that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)

HO2 Error in VCR


I guess either the tape head is dirty and needs cleaning or you should email Panasonic with that question after reading the instruction guide's troubleshooting section.

CODE: HO2


i think the problem is an accumulation of dust. try cleaning it out with a can of compressed air, or if you dont have that, by blowing on the lens gently.

Dvd ho2


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 . The following link shows a cheap fix..Hope it works for yours.
