Question about Panasonic DVD-RV32 DVD Player
After loading a disk, it displays H07 and then STOP.
I read elsewhere that HO7 ("HOT") means that the spindle motor is getting shut down because it's too hot. This may be because it's become dried out.
I unplugged my power*, opened it up, (6-7 screws in the back and sides), then removed two screws to remove the soft disk weight that sits on top of the DVD to keep it firmly against the spindle. I also flipped a plastic switch I could see down through the platter, which allowed me to manually slide open the carousel. After that, I had access to the spindle motor. I gently turned the gears to move the laser back out of the way, then put a little WD40 where the shaft enters the motor. I manually turned the spindle about 30 times to help it seep in. It didn't help the first few times I fired it back up, but after about 3 re-boots it actually worked! That was last night, so no guarantees--and no confidence that WD40 is the appropriate lubricant for longevity, but hey, it was on it's way to the dumpster because of one stupid error, so I'm a happy camper. BTW, to test it, I only replaced the disk-weight assembly (2 screws in the plastic part covering the disk and laser).
Disclaimer: I'm not a professional. This is my experience, this is not a tutorial or recommendation. Yes, you can cut, shock, or kill yourself. Capacitors can hold a charge even when a unit is not plugged in. I have no idea what lubricant to use. Get professional help if you're not one.

You can reset this fault by holding in the reverse, pause, and the on-off button, all at the same time. If it comes back then the spindle motor is the bad componet, and unless you know how to disasemble a mechanism for a changer I would let a pro handle it.

This is the major deffect design in the spindle motor.
Take the cover out put some WD40 in the spindle motor,leave it soak for about 20-30 mins.should work,after the motor it oil up.
