DVD PROBLEM does not want to spin.

    I can tell that it is having trouble spinning because I've looked at it. The dvd does not spin and it makes all sorts of weird sounds. Mostly it sounds like gears trying to turn but every now and then there have been odd beeps. I've cleaned the area of dust with an "air can" and left it unplugged for up to an hour waiting for it to cool off. Neither things worked.

    if your dvd is not spinning usually the display has on no disc that means the set is getting power into the circuit.however i can recond that the tray can open and close so i will take it that your led motor and try motor are fine and working.i point your problem to the spindle motor. this motor is between the two mention motor and is actually the .change this motor and your dvd will restore back to normal.

Sure it's not spinning? Unless you have the cover off it's hard to tell. The laser works opposite old record players, it reads from the middle out. If it does reach the middle it will not read. Usually says no disc. bulldog

DVD stops spinning displays code H07. Repair procedure?

H07 is the error code for Disk not Spinning. Open the case, open the DVD rack. Put 2 drops of 3-in-1 Oil on a Q-tip and rub the side of the spindle (located under the optical "eye"). Don't drip! Then close the DVD-rack with a DVD in it. Work the DVD in clockwise direction. Hopefully it will start to spin again.

hope this helps

Disney D7500PDD Portable DVD Player doesnt spin DVD

Very Good Daniel,
if you are good with a srewdriver.. you could use a DVD from a computer and swap it to disney
Does the door to DVD slides out or pop the lid.
You still can swap if you are careful and you know what you are doing
I've done a few times.
Let me know in the future, if you can't, you can send to me for repair

DVD ejects itself shortly after inserting

If you have tried cleaning the laser lens and the unit does spin,You have a defective laser assy,this is common with these players.If unit does not spin,try spinning it when you insert a disc by hand as this may start the unit spinning,if starts spinning then unit has a bad spin motor.

Dvd wont play just spins

Usual suspects (I have seen each one of these):
1. Home-made DVD defective
a- bad blank
b- bad burn (software settings incorrect)
c- not finalized
d- bad DVD recorder
2. Commercial DVDs - very scratched near center hole where startup data lives
3. Dirty laser lens on DVD player
4. Bad circuitry in DVD player (repairs almost always cost more than a new player)

Panisonic DVD RV-31 Wont read any DVD...shows a "Ho2" code

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.
