Re: DVD-CP67 Multi-disc DVD Player

Normal 0 This solution is most likely being submitted way too late tohelp "dingo 1295", but perhaps it will help others who run into thesame problem.

Just this past week, in January of 2009, I ran into the very same problem witha Panasonic DVD-CP67 DVD Player. The player would no longer play disks anddisplayed the H07 error. Now, I can't answer the question about what exactlythe H07 code is suppose to mean, but I can offer one possible solution for theDVD Player's inability to play disks and the subsequent display of the H07error. What happened in my case is that a film of dirt had built up between theelectrical contacts that are suppose to form a closed circuit when the player'sdisc drawer is closed. The two metal plates that make contact rub againsteach other and the abrasion eventually both creates and traps dirt where theplates touch. Therefore the player could no longer tell that the disk drawerwas closed because the dirt blocked the fragile electrical circuit from beingclosed. Since the player could not tell the drawer was closed it would not spinup and play any inserted disks. I'd also like to note that before the playerquite playing disks and started displaying the H07 error I was watching a DVDand did see the picture quality degrade until the video finally cut out and thedisk stopped.

The Solution in this instance was to carefully remove the cover from theplayer, after removing seven screws found on the back and sides of the player's case,and to clean the metal contacts with a non-abrasive eraser. The pink eraser ona NO. 2 pencil works perfectly.

On the back of the disk drawer, on the right side is a silver metal plate andat the back of the player, mounted on the plastic frame work around the platterthat picks up any disk placed in the player, is a folded copper plate held down with ascrew. Simply unscrew the copper plate and clean it with the eraser were itnormally touches the silver plate on the drawer when the drawer is closed,being sure you do not get any eraser dust inside the DVD player. Although thecopper plate will most likely be the plate with the most dirt on it you canalso clean the silver plate without removing it. Once cleaned, you can reattachthe copper plate with its screw.

Testing... You must place the cover back on the player before it will playdisks. The cover must be fully seated, but does not necessarily have to bescrewed on. You may have noticed when cleaning it that the copper plate has anupward folded tab that presses against the player's metal cover when the coveris closed. Without the copper plate touching the player's metal case throughits cover the previously mentioned electrical circuit won't be closed and theplayer won't play disks. With the cover properly back on the player go aheadand try and play a disk. If it works then the problem is solved and you canfinish screwing the cover back on. If the player still doesn't work thensomething more serious may be wrong and I would suggest contacting a servicecenter.

I hope this helps.

Player "reads" the DVD and then the display says "H07" and ends.

Hi there,

The "H07" is an error code, this particular error code refers to the dvd spindle drive motor. Effectively the spindle motor that spins the DVD isn't turning correctly and on occassion this can be that the spindle & bearings need lubricating due to partial siezure. But really this should only be done by somebody with a bit of technical know-how to avoid further damage to the machine or indeed an electrical injury to the person under taking the task. I can only suggest that you contact a Panasonic repair shop and to see if it is cost effective to repair.

Hope this helped,

Panasonic DVD-CV52 Multi-disc DVD Player? H07 error


Ah, the infamous HO7 error! This is to do with the disc motor and there is a solution which MIGHT work for you (it did for me).

You need some sewing machine oil and a precision oiler. Don't be tempted to use WD40 as it will get everywhere and is not really suitable. Just put a couple of drops into the spindle (disc) motor. Where the shaft goes into the motor and leave it for about an hour or so then try it again.

The only real solution is to replace the disc motor, but this can be a fix depending on the situation. Give it a try - what have you got to lose?

Error code h07

I have just recently posted a cure for this - but here we go again. Fault H07 is the fault code for the spindle/disc motor and to cure it do this!
With the lid of the player removed, locate the spindle and where the motor shaft goes into the motor itself, use a little light oil or WD40. Let it soak in a while and try it again - you should now find it works.
Why this works I just don't know - it just does! (:-)

H07 on panasonic

hey I just messed around with mine it was showing that code H07 like the others its kinds the same except it holds 4 more disc, I took the top off then I took the thing that holds cd still off!, there should be a brass thing I think thats for the ground, so I ended up putting some synthetic oil on the rails silver poles that the laser slides on, and where the disc sits on that black circle under it, you can see the motor it has a white thing on the motores pole so I just put a few drops on there then spinds it put some more on hoping it works its way DOWN INTO THE MOTOR thats the H07 not spining fast enough!! I put a disk in while everything was apart and its playing right now, the oil I desided to use was the stuff I use for my paintball gun lol! its really thin and slippory and im sure it will last for awhile!.... going to add more after 15 minutes of playing just to make sure its really lubed! hope this helps!!!!

I opened it up and sprayed silicone on the center where the disc snaps on. I also sprayed from a side angle to try to aim it towards bearings/works underneath. It worked!

Troubleshooting -- Displays H07 code

While stopped, press and hold REWIND and PAUSE on the unit and then also press and hold OPEN/CLOSE on the unit until Initialized appears from the display. Turn the unit off and on again. If it is still not working, Panasonic Consumer Support recommends having the product checked by an authorized Panasonic service center.
