Re: Panasonic DVD player

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.

Panasonic DVD Player. Reads DVD then says HO7 and then STOP. PLAY DOES NOT PLAY

Common failure of the spindle motor/laser assembly. Also known as the traverse unit, which can cost more than a new player to replace. Not a consumer-repairable part.

This normally means the spindle motor is faulty,there is a little coupler and this splits,this will cause the machine not to load.

I have a Panasonic DVD player, model no: DVD-RV32, that is displaying the message "H07". What does this mean?

Here's the fix
I've replaced the motor once before on my 5 disk player to fix the HO7 error. The second time it appeared I tried the fix at the above link instead of going thru the hassel of the repair shop.

You may need to apply WD40 multiple times to cure the problem, depending on how stiff the rotation of the spindle feels. After the first application the player ran for about 5 minutes before the HO7 error reappeared. After the second application we watched an entire movie with no issues. we'll see how long this lasts. The fix was simple and hopefully wont have to be repeated soon.

Getting "HO7" when loading disc

After calling Panasonic, they suggested pressing the reverse skip (<<) button, the pause button and the open/close button all at the same time. The DVD player will then say "initialize." Turn off the player and unplug it for about 1-2 minutes. Plug it back in and turn on the player and load a disc. If the HO7 error code pops back up, you need to take it to a dealership for service. Or, at the price of DVD players these days, just get a new one - which is where I'm going right now.

Awwwww The old HO7 code!! This code means that the spindle motor did not come up to speed and the only way to fix it is to first find out if its the driver servo circuit thats bad or the spindle motor itself is defective. If you know how to trouble shoot a motor speed control servo sure you can fix it, But theres no easy wand waving fix for this unit. Sorry. If its an older unit you want to consider buying a new one as it may not pay to estimate the unit and have it fixed . The balls in your court now my friend. Good Luck
