I purchased my LS50 over 16 months ago. I had a H03 error before and it went away after sitting on the shelf for three days. It worked ok for another couple of months and then stopped again. The screen says reading but the motor is not spinning. i pointed out that the laser lens is in the wrong place. When at resting location, the lens should be parked near to the spindle in the middle. The mechanism to move the lens backward and forward sometime get stuck at the end of its travel - furthest away from the spindle. If your player is out of warranty, then you maybe able to try this. Open up the bottom cover by taking out the screws - 10 or so. This will reveal the lens and motor module. Flip over the model and you should see the gear and shaft for the lens. Move the gear so that the lens move towards the centre. Click the covers back into place , reconnect the battery and try. If it works, put all the screws back. Mine was fixed this way but this is not a gaurantee that this will work on yours. Good luck.
Forgot to mention. You can also clean the gear shaft in case there are small particules stuck to the grease and affect the movement. After cleaning, apply a tiny bit of grease just to lubricate the moving shaft. Not too much. I am glad that the instructions help.

SOURCE: H03 Error
With the indulgence of bbtoast and DARKLORD1...
This is a known common problem with most Panasonic DVD units. An HO3 error display indicates a "Traverse Servo Problem". The traverse servo is the motor that drives/moves the optical pickup (lens + cradle) to slide along a shaft while reading the disc.
A HO3 error could either indicate problem in the:
1. shafting/slider: possibly clogged with dust, dirt or dried up lubrication;
2. stuck up/defective traverse motor;
3. defective wiring connection, electronic regulator/controller.
As you will note, all of the above requires opening the unit and component level repair. Since this would need familiarity with electronic components/circuitry, use of a DVM and possible a soldering iron, perhaps you might be better off seeking the services of a qualified professional.
Hope that this be of additional help. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional; information.
Good luck and kind regards.

I have an LS82 and the following advice from www.avsforum.com fixed the problem for me. Note that the number of screws that hold the bottom on the machine vary depending on the model. Also the server frame might be plastic instead of metal:

the problem arrise from the laser lamb which moves up and down the disk through a mechanical shaft
I do believe when we press the back space for long time it will take the laser lamb beyond its limit and get stuck at the end of the rotating shaft so the servo motor gets difficulty and resistance to get it back to tract
all you have to do is open the back of the LS50 " 12 small screws"
when you remove the back cover be carful not to damage the cables .
you will find the servo motor and laser lamb on one metal structure hanged to the body by three rubber suspensions
remove the whole structre and turn it upside down slowly
move the small black rotating joints up or down you will notice the the mechanical shaft will start rotating and the laser lamb will start to move away from the servo motor relasing it from where it get stuck
and it will work perfect after that
return the back cover and screw the 12 screws and you are done

H03 is a mech problem if I remember you need to take the bottom cover off and remove the mechanical assy (laser chassis) then you need to clean the worm gear (this is the gear that moves the laser back and forth) even the littlest amount of dirt will jame this gear and make the unit go into H03 Mode
