Re: No Longer Plays discs

You should try this site. It worked for me. Also after fixing you should try and remove anything that may be on top of the DVD as this seems to cause the issue. We have had our S35 for at least 4 years and today was the first time I got the error.

Re: No Longer Plays discs

Throw it out... I have the same problem with the h02 failure. Is anything built to last anymore? The moral od the storie is.. Don't pay a high price and plan on throwing it out when it breaks. I'm sure what a spindle servo cost, but I'm sure a new DVD player will be cheaper.

H02 means Spindle servo error. Replace spindle motor.

My dvd player plays dvd discs ok. but when i use dvd burned on my computer shows no disc.the same disc plays fine on my computer

Some DVD and Blu-Ray players will not play a burned disc until it has been finalized. Finalize the disc on your computer then see if it will play. (Finaalizing a disc means it can no longer be recorded to, by the way.)

The HO2 message means the disc is not spinning,it's not about the lens
or the laser.It is easy to take the lid off.Once you do that,plug it in,open the tray with the remote,put in a DVD,close the tray and then give the white plastic wheel on the top a gentle little nudge to get the disc spinning.

Spindle motor in DVD mechanism require replacement, not practical to repair, just buy new one, upconverting DVD player would cost you less then repair of your old one.

Code H02

Your DVD player is having an issue with the spindle motor (the thing that spins the DVD around). The following solution works for most people, and you should only have to do this once.

  1. Unplug the DVD player.
  2. Take the cover off.
  3. Place a disc on the spindle.
  4. Put a little pressure on the disc (so it doesn't slip) and spin it around a few times.
  5. Remove the disc, reassemble, and plug back in.
  6. Try to play a DVD.
  7. Report back if this solved your problem, or if more troubleshooting is needed.

Samsung dvd vr-357; recorded DVD only plays on the player

You have to "Finalize" the disc before it will play on other units. Go to Disc Menu, Second choice listed(not in front of it right now) Selections to right will offer disc Finalize. Say YES.

H02 Error after inserting a dvd disk

The trouble started with an error to close and open the DVD drawer. It indicated "close" when the drawer was open, or "no disc" when the DVD was inside, and I had to try many times before I get the right response and go on with the procedures.
But then it also started playing just a few MP3 tracks and stopping to work, showing again the inserted DVD data. Later H02, and then H07 and STOP. It doesn't even start playing stuffs, movies or MP3 tracks!

Does not read disc including cleaning disc

The problem with your unit is the "Spindle Motor", this motor is the one that spins the disc so the laser can read it. I sugest you to take your player to a shop, or back for service if the unit still under manufacturer warranty.
